Klek is a mountain in central Croatia. It is about 1188 m high (3895 ft) and it is a popular hiking destination. In local folkclore, the Klek is described as a face of giant Regoc due to the similarities of the mountain's profile to human face (nose is highest peak). Local legends also say that there are witches that are residing on the top of the mountain.

Ah, the explanation really helps out. Its a nice shot, mountain and stars, using moonlight. But the name and story give it a special depth. Thanks for sharing
