A Quick Dip

I had been travelling alone for a few weeks through the Balkans in late May 2013. Although it should have warm by then, the weather had mostly been unusually rainy and chilly - except for the day I visited the stunning Lake Bohinj, which is just a 2 hour bus ride from Ljubljana. I was completely seduced by the lush greenery and serenity of the area, and the clear and calm waters were just too difficult to resist on that particularly beautiful day. I decided to strip down and take a quick dip, but not before setting my camera atop a bench and turning on the self-timer. And boy, am I glad I did.
