This past weekend a previously unvisited destination waited for us. While I already posted some countryside images of abandoned buildings from our road trip, in this post I want to share one of two main destinations of our latest venture. As you will quickly notice, the images from this day were taken with my phone camera, since I forgot my Canon at home. Don't ask me how it happened. It was a first for me as well. But I hope you will enjoy the sights nonetheless.

While on a recent in-country travel (the fruits of which you will see in the upcoming week), somewhere in the vast countryside of central Bosnia and Herzegovina, I spotted these run-down and abandoned houses. I stopped my car on the side of the road, and took a look around. Even though there is lots of beauty here (and I hope to show that to you in the images from the actual destinations from that day) these rugged sights somehow caught my attention first.

The Rama Lake is an artificially created lake on the Rama river, in the municipality of Prozor. A lone road leads through the mountain Makljen, and along various resting places you can enjoy these sights I'm leaving you with for today. Following this road north leads you to the towns of Jajce and Banja Luka, amongst others, while venturing south leads you to my hometown Mostar.

We have arrived at the best part of our recent hike to the spring of the river Sanica. I haven't been in these parts of the mountains for 6 years now, so exploring this place from a new perspective, was very interesting. On the other hand, lots of things had changed, mainly the paths, which were now flooded with water. Thus, the last stretch of our hike proved to be the most difficult one.

Some of you may remember my recent "Secluded Forest" photo series, that I did two weeks back. This new two-parter goes back there, but explores the stream of the river Sanica even further, all the way to its spring. And while we are on the topic of spring, those of you who remember the recent images from this place, will immediately notice how much nature has bloomed in just two weeks here.

I have talked about the River Neretva numerous times on this blog, and in this post I want to show you some impressions from the southern banks of the river in the small village Moruga. The water sometimes overflows the banks in the spring season, causing nearby trees to be drowned. There are a couple of interesting sights here, which I hope you will enjoy!

Sarajevo is the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and last Sunday my friends and I made a day trip to it. We had the luck of having really great weather on that day, and all the sights just screamed out: spring is here! Sarajevo is a big and beautiful city. It's located in central Bosnia and Herzegovina and, as opposed to Mostar, has a more calm temperature scale during spring/summer, which makes visiting it that much more enjoyable.

There are many places around Mostar (the city where I live in) that fascinate even me, as a local. These mountain ranges won't be on any tourist map nor will many local people know that this place even exists. But it's there. Tucked behind mountain Velez, and isolated road takes you past the village Zijemlja, and ultimatley leads to Nevesinje. Somewhere in between, these sights await you. The images were taken with my phone camera, so excuse the quality this time.

The landscapes here are mostly bare. Spring, even though in full swing now in the lower regions, is nowhere to be found here. There is even fresh snowfall on the surrounding mountains.

We have arrived at the end of the "Secluded Forest" photo series, and I truly believe that I have saved the best images for last. This last stretch of the hike took us into the deep parts of the forest. After having crossed the river Sanica by foot in the previous part, the dirt road took us now along the mountain edge, further into the unknown.

As we reached the stream of the river Sanica, our hike began to take a whole different turn. Suddenly the noises of nature became more intense, rugged landscapes clearer and the river rushed by us, with its cold whiff. So we made the journey into the deepest parts of the forest, and on our way we saw many interesting things, which I will continue to show you in this second part.
