533 – On A Clear Day You Can See Forever

I don’t really like polarizers. They change colors, and it is really awkward to restore them after the fact. I wonder how people did this in film days.

Anyway. Today we made a trip down to Slovenia. The idea was to visit a lake that regularly vanishes in summer, but it’s on 800 meters above sea level, and when we were there, we found the landscape covered with snow. We chose plan B and escaped to the sea, entering Italy in Trieste.

It was an uncommonly clear day in Italy, and I can’t remember ever having seen the mountains of South Tyrol from Trieste. Amazing.

These two images were taken just south of Udine using the Nikon 18-200 VR.

The Song of the Day is “On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)” from the 1970 Barbra Streisand movie. Hear Barbra sing and see her wearing funny clothes on YouTube 🙂
