LifeWatch Slovenia featured in the LifeWatch ERIC newsletter
In the December 2023 LifeWatch Newsletter issue the photo of the month was featured from our colleague Žan Kafol from LifeWatch Slovenia, who won the National Geographic 2023 photo contest for the second year in a row.
The photo title is “ENLIGHTENED (All Milky Ways Lead to Rakov Škocjan)“. It won in the landscape category and was declared the expert jury’s overall competition winner. Rakov Škocjan, a karst valley between Planinsko polje and Cerkniško polje in Slovenia, is known for its typical karst features and has been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The photo was taken during summer, amidst the Perseids meteor shower, and depicts a night scene in front of the entrance to the Zelške Caves and below the
Small Natural Bridge.
