I have had an intention to visit Sečovlje Saltpans for quite a while. Considering it's only one and a half hour drive, I have been putting it off for far too long.
However, I have finally done it during the last autumn. I was really looking forward to it. It is supposed to be one of more popular bird nesting places in Slovenia, which results in a great photo opportunity.
When I got there, at first I was a bit disappointed. I haven't been thinking about that before, but the nesting period was over months before and most of the birds were preparing for their yearly journey south.
The disappointment lingered around for only a couple of moments, before being replaced with astonishment. The surrounding was just so beautiful and peaceful. Sun was reflecting of the calm sea water in shallow pools. But all of that was just nothing compared to the sunset to come. Well, judge it for yourself...
The result was a beautiful afternoon, which ended with a delicious evening dinner. Have I mentioned before that I just love seafood. Mmmmm... seafood.
