Photographer's Note

I took this photo from hilltop Slavkovsky Peak in The High Tatras mountains, situated in the northern part of Slovakia.

The Slavkovsk Peak is popular between tourists because of its large top with a really wonderful view all around. It is situated at the end of the south-eastern crotch which joins the Vchodn Vysok (Eastern High) peak. The northern slope of the Slavkovsk Peak is characteristic with a large number of very steep ravines falling down to the Veľk Studen dolina (Great Cold Valley). The whole southern slope is full of scree material. The slopes of the Slavkovsk Peak were favourite ones between chamois hunters. In 1664 a group of 12 members lead by Juraj Buchholtz sr. (at that time the best guide in the High Tatras) managed the first documented tourist ascent on the top through the eastern comb.
