Photographer's Note

There are many myths as to the origin of this beautiful part of the world. This story I heard told when I was there:
The origins of Bohinj

God was giving land to people and as he finished he realized that he had forgotten about a small group of people, who were silent and didn't hustle like the others. Because of their modesty and patience he felt pity for them. That is why he decided to give them the most beautiful land of them all, which he had spared for himself. It's called Bohinj, because the Slovenes call God "Boh".



Bohinj (German: Wochein) is a municipality in the Upper Carniola region of northwestern Slovenia, covering the 20 km long and 5 km wide Bohinj basin of the Sava Bohinjka river within the Julian Alps, characterized by the periglacial Lake Bohinj (Slovene: Bohinjsko jezero). The municipality's administrative centre is located at Bohinjska Bistrica.
