The magic starts at the moment when you find in your bag a forgotten undeveloped film from a portrait shoot two years ago...
Stillness of the foggy Croatian coastline during winter is one of the most visually subtle experiences I have come across.
Dragging around a 50 years old film camera which weights more then 2 Kg isn't always the most popular option when planing a weekend landscape shootings.
But when you pair the Mamiya C33 with KODAK Portra and experience the pictorial magic which this combination delivers it's then very easy to forget all about the other gear packed up for the trip and just let go and enjoy the view through it's mesmerizing viewfinder.
After an 8h drive from Zagreb and terrible traffic through Italy I finally arrived to Lago di Garda. Despite the magic of the place during the moody Spring weather, photographically wise the initial view was quite disappointing due to the extremely hazy air above the lake which actually lasted through all 3 day of my stay there.
As I was exploring the northern coast of the lake I discovered there was a cable ride from the city of Malcesine to the top of the Monte Baldo which rises above the Northeast part of the lake. As Monte Blado reaches 2.218 m I was hopping for a stunning view over the moody lake but when I arrived to the top after 25 min. cable ride to my continuous disappointment during this trip all I could see is the fog so thick I could barely see the person next to me but luckily after half an hour the wind dissipated the fog and the stunning landscape emerged.
