Issue 149 Cover

This issue’s cover is by Martin Bissig. It’s got a distinctly Scottish Island feel to it, though that’s not in fact where it was taken…

The emerald green Soca river
  • Camera: DJI Mini 3 Pro
  • Settings: 1/50s, f1.7, ISO100, 6.7mm
  • RIders: Franziska Gobeli, Gerhard Czerner
  • Location: Soca Valley, Slovenia

The renowned Soca River, which courses through the valley bearing its name, is a popular destination in Slovenia for hikers and river rafting enthusiasts. During our two-day stay in Soca as part of our Slovenian road trip, the weather took an unexpected turn and rain began to pour. The image captured here is the final one before a relentless 24-hour downpour ensued. The once tranquil, blue water transformed into a muddy, raging current in the days that followed, making it impossible to capture any more picturesque scenes featuring the river’s signature clear, blue water.

    Love that cover shot.

    Always wanted to kayak the turquoise waters of the Soca, but not got round to it yet.

    The soca is lovely. There have been a few single speed races nearby over recent years. So I have rafted it twice… first time was in the spring and it was cold and awesome. Second time water was low and it was nice but not so thrilling. I also ended up with toad sperm in my beard.
