Croatia a little bit differently

A few days ago we finished a photography tour to Croatia. May is wonderful time to be there and we also had great photography opportunities. The group was wonderful, we had lots of fun and also lots of wine – I guess these two go well together. This was also my first time to work with Dan and Tanya, the owners of Natural Exposures photography tours. They are both very professional, well organized and above all very nice people. They run tours all around the world, focusing on nature ad wildlife and I do recommend them from my heart!

Here are a few photos from the tour – this time no classic shots or grand scenery that you see in promotional publications all the time.

Autumn at Plitvice Lakes NP

Plitvice Lakes national park in Croatia is one of the most beautiful places in the region. I always look forward to come back to the park, especially when the park is at its best for photography. This is usually early Summer, Autumn when the colours kick in and in Winter when there is snow and ice. Last week I was co-leading a photography tour with Strabo Photo TC and with Tom Bol. We spent two nights there and had four photography sessions there. Two afternoons and two mornings.

What a stark contrast to the day before, when there was a record high number of visitors per day – 13.000! This morning we had the park for ourselves – for about an hour and half we were the only visitors there. What a bliss, especially because we were able to use our tripods on board walks.  Continue reading Autumn at Plitvice Lakes NP
