15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

In the heart of dense forest, you stumble on a winding path that threads along the lip of an otherwise invisible gorge. If you’re lucky enough to find a path down the hundred or so feet to the water’s edge, you’re suddenly delighted with a narrow slot canyon winding to the left and to the right. The turns make the sky-blue water look almost like it’s winding through a cave. It perfectly conveys the unexpected beauty that is Slovenia.
