Couple of weeks ago I spend three days in Goriška Brda with my family. It was the cherry blossom season and Brda region has the best cherries in Slovenia. We stayed at Kabaj Morel winery, where they make some of the world’s best wines, not to mention wonderful home cooked food! During the day we were visiting Brda’s towns, Šmartno, Kojsko, Dobrovo, the ruined village of Slapnik and the Sabotin peak.  The cherry blossoms were at their peak and I spent both evenings and mornings pursuing photography.

It was lovely three days and I got the perfect timing with cherry trees. It was almost too easy getting nice shots. Next time I return to this beautiful place is going to be autumn when leaves start to turn. Until then a few bottles of Kabaj morel excellent wines will remind me of the good times! 🙂
