Issue 149

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.
