40 Incredible Landscape Photos from the Styria region of Slovenia By Peter Zajfrid

About The Photographer

Peter Zajfrid is a well-respected and very passionate amateur landscape photographer based in the small town of Ruse in the Styria region of Slovenia, who loves capturing the beauty of this world through photography. He enjoys the outdoors and nature, and photography provides him with a medium to capture and share this with others. He especially loves creating images that portray the beauty of Slovenian Styria and its landscapes. Quality of light, for Peter, is the key factor and at the heart of his work. He enjoys the way light transforms the landscape momentarily, revealing cloudscapes, atmosphere, form and textures – he tries to capture that moment. He likes to explore the integration and effect of weather and the seasons on landscape, locally where he lives in Ruse and around the Styria region of Slovenia and when travelling further afield.

Below is a selection of 40 Peter Zajfrid’s landscape photographs from all over the Styria region of Slovenia. You can see more of his beautiful work on his Facebook page Peter Zajfrid Photo and on his website Peter Zajfrid, where he runs a photo blog which is well worth following and contains many more stunning landscape photos.

  1. Bravo Peter,
    čudovite slike in kombinacije barv, svetlobe in izbira motivov. Tistim, katere moti izbira jezika za podnapise, svetujem, da web sait-e v tujem jeziku ne obiskujejo, ampak samo na svom maternjem jeziku, ker so itak plehki za umetnost.
    Milan

    1. za moj okus to ni umetnost, pač pa s pomočjo računalnika izdelan kič. večino motivov poznam, a na noben način jih v stvarnosti ni mogoče videti (na tak način) 🙁 Mario

  2. From a fellow photog, spectacular photos, Peter. The photo with this caption had me initially perplexed,,,”View of the landscape of the Slovene Hills as seen from the Plac lookout tower located on the Placki Vrh peak”. I thought the light between the hills was the Sun. But I guess it’s the town lights reflecting off the fog. I guess a long exposure intensified the light. Beautiful.

  3. Res prelepe fotografije, vendar se pridružujem mnenju gospoda Medveščka in še nekaterih, da bi morali biti podnapisi v slovenščini in angleščini. Naj vam ne bo nerodno, ker ste le Slovenec. Mar ne bi bilo lepo, da preberejo podnapise tudi tisti, ki ne znajo angleščine, je to sramotno za starejšega Slovenca?
    Ana

    1. Popolnoma se strinjam. Zivim ze 50 let v Avstraliji. In mi je zal, da Slovenci so tako ponosni z tujskimi besedi. Jaz se ne sramujem slovenskega jezika ce ravno sem ze tako dolgo v tujuni. Moram pa priznati da je bilo zelo dobro predelano z Photoshopom ali nekim slicnim programom.
      Rudi

  4. Res lepe fotke. Podnapisi bi seveda morali biti tudi v slovenščini. Druga stvar, ki jo še nobeden ni omenil, je količina fotošopa,ki je posebno pri mlajših orodje brez meja. Tu je povdarjena slikarska nota, kar ni slabo. Avtorja prisrčno vabim na predstavitev v FKLjubljana.

  5. Precudovito! Ljudje, ne komentirajte kaj bi bilo potrebno napisati, ampak uzivajte v tej lepoti!Ne iscite napak, temvec pohvalite! Prevec smo kriticni! Bravo, avtor! Vse dobro Ines

  6. Prelepoooooooo! Hvala! Ponosna Slovenka, da imamo take rojake, Slovence, ki se radi pohvalijo z vsem lepim, kar nas bogati in nam lepša poglede na svet. In to naš SVET :).Boste šli še kam v Slovenske “kotičke” z vašim fotoaparatom? Mi na obali imamo Jako Ivančiča. On tudi deli z nami svoje poglede na naš del Slovenije.

  7. Vsi tisti, ki tukaj jamrate zakaj to in tisto ni tukaj v Slovenskem jeziku……… a bi lahko slučajno pogledali, da je celotna stran v angleškem jeziku, torej verjetno usmerjena bolj tujcem ??? Jasno, kapiš, komprende jao no……… 🙂

  8. Absolutely spectacular. Thank you for sharing your part of the world. Styria/Slovenia is on my bucket list.

  9. Izjemne fotografije nas opomnijo, kako lepa je naša Slovenija. Vljudno vabljeni na Koroško, da tudi pri nas posnamete takšne čudovite fotografije, saj je tudi pri nas zelo lepo.

  10. Ana
    Čudovito,to je vspodbuda, da bomo spoznali in obiskali slovenske kraje. Vsa pohvala avtorju in želje po še več,

  11. Fantastic, next challenge is to cover with your lenses some other parts such as Bela Krajina, the Soča Valley, Julian Alps, Karst…plenty of work still to do….

  12. Odlicno, odlicno Peter! Upam, da bo kdaj tudi okolica Ljutomera prisla v sirni svet skozi vas objektiv. Da ste uporabili v podnapisih slovenscino pa je samo hvale vredno! Lepote Slovenije ste prikazali tudi tistim , ki se niso slisali za naso lepo Slvenijo. ODLICNO !!!

    1. Popravek

      Da ste uporabili v podnapisih slovenscino (beri anlescino) pa je samo hvale vredno! Lepote Slovenije ste prikazali tudi tistim , ki se niso slisali za naso lepo Slvenijo. ODLICNO !!!

      Se opravicujem.

      1. Thank you Peter, I loved revisiting some of the places I had seen last time I was in Maribor.
        You are truly an artist. I left Slovenia and now live in Australia.

    1. PREKRASNO g. Peter. Saj vemo, da imamo prekrasno deželo, a vi ste to še prikazali v vseh
      superlativih. ČESTITAM !!!

      Ivanka

  13. Slike so lepe in smo ponosni na Slovenijo,kdor pa kritizira ali ne spoštuje našega naroda ,mislim,da nima kaj iskati v naši lepi domovini.

  14. Slovenci, kateri samo Slovenijo vidite in jo hvalite, se mi zdite nacionlisticni. Seveda je Slovenija res zelo lepa, se posebno, ce pomislimo, da je zelo majhna. Vendar sem mnenja, da je narava povsod lepa, treba je oci odpreti in videli boste kako lepe so pokrajine tudi drugod po svetu.
    Ponosa vredno tudi ni, ce smo Slovenci, Nemci, Francozi… ali Somalijci, ponosnen naj bo tisti, kateri je dober in posten clovek, tisti, ki pomaga ubogim beguncem ali komurkoli, vsakemu, kdor je pomoci potrenen.

  15. V veliko čast mi bo posredovati to čudovito delo in našo deželo svojim svojcem in znancem po svetu. Mojster, moj poklon.

  16. Fantastično! Če bi Peter Jackson videl te slike, bi verjetno Gospodarja prstanov snemal na Štajerskem:):) Mogoče še bo, kakšno nadaljevanje Hobita… Se pa pridružujem tistim, ki pravijo, da bi morali biti podnapisi k fotografijam tudi v slovenščini. Obvezno! Pravi domoljub se zaveda, kaj pomeni domač jezik. Naj se anglo-američani naučijo tudi kaj slovenščine. Prej so vsi govorili srbo-hrvaško, zdaj pa angleško. Kakšni ste to Slovenci, da se sramujete svojega jezika. Zato prosim avtorja teh čudovitih fotografij, da predstavitev naše lepe Štajerske dopolni še s slovenskimi zapisi.

    Ponosna slovenska Štajerka

    1. Ze nekaj desetletij zivim v Kanadi in tudi sodelujem v slovenskih drustvih. Vasa trditev , da se slovenci sramujejo svojega jezika je popolnoma zgresena. Slovenski likovni umetniki in drugi ,ki razstavlajo v tujini se najveckrat predstavijo v tujih jezikih, predvsem v anglescini. Peter Zajfrid se je predstavil
      kot Slovenec doma iz Rus pri Mariboru, Ker je uporabil Internet kot razstavni prostor,ki ni samo v Sloveniji ampak po vsem svetu, je povsem samo po sebi umevno, da so podnapisi v anglescini. S tem je predstavil Slovenijo celotni svetovni javnosti in to je tisto kar ga dela ponosnega slovenca, ki se svoje Slovenije ne sramuje. Fotografije so vec kot odlicne in to je tisto kar je Peter razstavil. Toraj ocitki, da bi morali biti podnapisi tudi v slovenscini ali samo v slovenscini so popolnoma zgreseni in osko gledani.

  17. Kdor je vsaj nekaj časa bival v tej pokrajini, ve, da je avtor v fotografije vnesel tudi velik del svoje duše in njene lepote. Mojster.
    Iskrene čestitke in hvala.
    Angleščina ne moti, naslovnik je mednaroden.
    Človeška figura – fajn da je odsotna na fotografijah, je že vedel, zakaj. 🙂

  18. Ivek: Bravo, Peter! Čudoviti posnetki. Vse je tako kot mora biti. Slovenščina? Da, vendar ni potrebna za predstavitev naše lepe dežele. Prav tako ni potrebno imeti na posnetku ljudi, saj bi to odvrnilo pozornost od lepote narave. Slovenci smo zahtevni do drugih, ki se trudijo, sami pa naredimo zelo malo ali nič (Janez Medvešek je res svetla izjema).

  19. ČUDOVITO-:) Čestitam, samo občudujem in sem brez besed, pa naj bo v slovenskem, angleškem ali kateremkoli človeškem jeziku. Hvala.

  20. Kako lepo, ko nekdo vidi štajerski konec Slovenije kot lepoto neokrnjene narave. Pridite in uživajte.Da omenim le to,če niste prebrali, od kod ime Maribor. Slovensko geslo mesta je tako postalo Mar i bor – mar mi je i(in) bor-im se za to mesto.:-). Hvala za fotke, prekrasne in lepe.

    1. To je zanimiva romantična različica imena mesta. V resnici pa je Maribor dobil ime po slovanskem obrazcu: Brandenburg = Branibor (lužiško ime za to – danes nemško – pokrajino), nekdanji Marburg = Maribor. Petrove fotke so čudoviti posnetki čudovitih krajev. Prekrasno! Hvala!

  21. Oh kako lepa si ti domovina! Biser in raj na Zemlji tej. Vse čestitke avtorju za enkratno delo. Lepo je tudi naše Pomurje, posebej Goričko.
    Še enkrat iskrene čestitke in HVALA.

  22. Peter, v tujini zivim ze veliko let, in zelo obcudijem in cenim tvoje fotografije, ki me tako lepo spominjajo na mojo rodno Štajersko. Hvala!

  23. Poklon avtorju. Ponesli ste v svet našo zasanjano Štajersko. Tudi če ni niti črke zraven, je vsaka fotografija poezija. Kot pelin grenki komentar pa – da ja ni kaki kanček nevoščljivosti zraven.

    1. Navdušujoče v vseh pogledih…
      Avtor zasluži vse pohvale, da takšno podobo Slovenije posreduje v širni svet. Vsem, ki želijo videti, je izrazil, pojasnil in sporočil izjemno veliko. Tudi jaz se pridružujem tistim, ki so mu brezpogojno čestitali.
      Hvala in lep pozdrav,
      Heda

  24. Komentarji in kritike, da podpisi pri fotografijah niso tudi v slovenščini so odveč, saj so fotografije namenjene tistim, ki nameravajo obiskati Slovenijo. Angleščina, britanska ali ameriška, avstralska ali indijska pa je trenutno jezik, ki ga razumejo po vsem svetu. Ljubezen do Slovenije in tudi posredno slovenščine pa je avtor pokazal že s tem, da je vso to lepoto narave pokazal vsemu svetu.Mordea sem le pogrešal tudi ljudi, ki so del te čudovite narave (moja žena je Štajerka, doma iz Poljčan in je tudi lepa)

  25. As a Born Slovenia, I know all the scenes from the photos. Yes,. the country around Maribor it’s simply breathtaking as are the people. Thanks for the reminder as after long absence things fade a little

  26. Some of the photos really soothe the soul in such a way that you really want to be there just to contemplete and enjoy the landscape together with your own thoughts!!! Thank you for sharing. I am looking forward for more!

    1. Milan, ne razumem – zakaj prevod v angleščino, saj so komentarji v angleščini? Sicer pa Američani razumejo tudi ‘londonsko’ angleščino. Veliko komentarjev je tudi v angleščini, zato vse tiste, ki kritizirate, zakaj niso v slovenščini, sprašujem, ali verjamete, da bi bilo toliko pozitivnih odzivov iz tujine, če bi bili podnapisi samo v slovenščini? Morda bi lahko bili v obeh jezikih. – BrunoFF **

      1. Čudovite fotografije,posnete v pravem in pravljičnem trenutku lepo predstavljen naš Štajerski del domovine,ponosna sem, da sem od tu doma tudi jaz.Hvala fotografu za lepe trenutke in občutke doživete ob gledanju naših lepot!

  27. PETER, ISKRENE ČESTITKE ZA VSAKO FOTOGRAFIJO POSEBEJ. SI JIH PA, ŽAL, MALO POPACAL S PELINOM, KER NISI TAKO VELIK, DA BI PODPISE DODAL SPODAJ TUDI V SVOJEM MATERNEM JEZIKU. TE JE SRAM, DA SI SLOVENEC?. JAZ SEM PONOSEN NA TO.

    1. Se pridružujem mnenju gospoda J.Medveška, da so fotografije izredno lepe, tisto s podpisom pa res ne sodi na fotografije slovenskega avtorja. Tudi v slovensščini se da marsikaj lepo povedati, posebno če hočemo lepo predstaviti našo lepo deželo.

      1. VSEM TISTIM, ki vas motijo podnapisi v takšnem ali drugačnem jeziku,… TU NISO POTREBNI PODNAPISI,FOTOGRAFIJA GOVORI VSAKA SAMA ZASE ! Zazrite in poglobite se vanjo in naj vas misli odnesejo v naš prelep konec Slovenije!

        1. se popolnoma strinjam. Dih jemajoče fotografije. Hvala avtorju, da jih deli med nas. In pošilja lepote naše dežele po svetu, kar je njegov osnovni namen. Dosežen, tudi brez slovenskih podnapisov.

        2. Drži Vesna. Vedno se bo našel nekdo, ki bo iskal dlako v jajcu. Seveda so podnapisi pri tako izvirnem remek delu nujni v angleščini, da lahko cel svet vidi in izve kje ti kraji so. kaj bi šele bilo, če bi avtor posnel ostali lepši del Slovenije :)?

      2. Res je ce bi podnapisi bili v slovenskem jeziku bi na primer Kitajci zamahnili z roko in rekli:” Skoda , da ne vemo kje je ta lepa dezela.” Preden kritiziramo je potrebno tudi logicno razmisljati!

    2. Kritika,zakaj ni pisano v slovenscini?!?!?!Vidim,da so slike potovale po svetu.Ker je pisano v anlescini,mnogo vec ljudi ve o cem se gre.Ce posljem slike svojim otrokom,vnukom in pravnukom,dobijo vecje znanje o tem predelu ,od koder so njihove korenine,ceprav te zemlje ne poznajo.Ali enkrat jo bodo morda obiskali.Kar se tice Slovencev,pa tako skoraj vsi,predvsem mladi
      ljudje ,govorijo in citajo anlesko.
      Pozdrav Kristina

    3. Gospod Janez Medvescek, vas komentar se bere s kanckom ljubosumnosti. Tudi vase fotografije so odlicne, moti pa me obvezna kritika ki jo dodajate k vasim fotografijam. Da je avtor Peter Zajfrid uporabil anglescino, pa je vsekakor dokaz, da je ponosen slovenec, saj je predstavil svojo dezelo sirsi javnosti po svetu ne samo doma v ozji domovini.

    4. Pozdravljen naš Janez! Kako sem bil vesel vaših besed, vam ne morem povedati. Ne sramuj se svojega jezika, so nas v gimnaziji učili vrli profesorji!

  28. HVALA, Peter! Pokrajinski štajerski album Vaših, občudujočih, fotografskih dosežkov sem dobil od Janeza Godnova (Janez, HVALA). Res smo lepi in odzivi to nesporno dokazujejo. Tudi naša Koroška bi lahko bila Vaš izziv pa še daleč ni. Sicer pa, kaj pa je v naši deželici sploh daleč. LEPO SE IMEJTE, Peter!

    1. I enjoyed your stunning pictures.They look so delicate, almost like a painting. Would you like to share with me what kind of camera you are using. I’m an amateur photographer and would like to follow your path. Thank you for sharing,

  29. Amazing photos. I am from Canada and we have been planning to visit Slovenia for a few years now. Will definitely come to this area. I have been following you on FB for a while. Love your pictures. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Some really fantastic photos here: Styria looks like a beautiful place! Wish I could’ve seen it when I was in Slovenia.

  31. My goodness thank you for this! I had a friend from Maribor at university, and he used to come back from visits to home with tons of lush photos much like this. Makes me want to start a “travel to Styria” savings jar in my kitchen.Thank you for sharing this beautiful place!

  32. Nice photos! My family came from Ptuj and I can´t wait to show this gallery to my mother!
    We now live in Argentina since the second world war. I really want to visit Slovenia this year!

  33. My brother and I just got back from a 2 week trip in Slovenia! We spent most of our time in Ljubljana, but we were able to get to Maribor on a weekend. Gorgeous city! Thanks so much for the reminder photos

  34. How charming! I have never been to the region. I am now double-interested! I will definitely try to include Marburg in my summer travel plans.

  35. Oh wow! These photos present a completely different view of Slovenia than the one that I had always imagined. Thank you so much for sharing them.

      tole je pa res zelo lepo, prečudovito, pravzaprav je to lepoto težko izaziti v besedi, vse je preskromno. Res je zelo lepo ujeto v fotografski posnetek, a če bi znali sami gledati, kot je to zelo spretno ujel fotograf, bi videli, da so te lepote povsod okrog nas, a smo premalo pozorni in v zavedanju trenutka in nam vse to uide, ker smo ali v prihodnosti ali preteklosti, ta trenutek pa nam uhaja in ne vidimo in ne spregledamo…
