The three winning photos highlight Slovenia’s beautiful forests.

First place went to Nejc Mrežar’s photo ‘Zadnji sončni žarki’ (Last rays), taken in Migojnice, Slovenia.

“The place on my photo is on my daily walking route. I passed it and looked at it many times and I already had the photo in my mind before I took it. After some months, I decided to take my camera with me to catch the last sun rays,” said the winning photographer.

Janez Tolar came in second with his photo ‘Jaz in jutro’ (Me in the morning), taken in Jelovica in Northern Slovenia.

“On a crisp morning in the midst of a mighty fir forest, the sun, along with the haze, allowed me to take beautiful, extraordinary shots. I used a tripod and a wireless trigger and stepped into the frame myself,” he explained.

Filip Markovič won third prize for his photo ‘Gozdna pravljica’ (A fairy tale forest), taken in Kunč Kočevski rog in Southern Slovenia.

“I took this photo when I saw a magical light shattering between spruce trees while driving along a forest road,” he explained.
