Sunny Days of Herzegovina

My goal for today is to bring some sunshine into your world, if only through the screen of your computer. These landscapes were taken during early autumn and they always remind me of light and happy times. I hope to take you away, for a short while, from these cold days. Even though this is autumn in the southern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina this still means warm days.

Of course Beni had the best time, being off his leash and roaming freely in the surroundings. You can imagine how fun it was to clean him up afterwards :)


Most of the hills are bare and covered with a treeline here and there, but there is also a part that is covered with a deeper forest. I always like to view this entrance to it, and wonder where the path will take you this time.



Then there is the pleasure of lying on the grass and either looking up at the sky and seeing the clouds roll by, or look into ground that is covered in flowers.







I hope your week is going well, and that you are enjoying the winter season. Just a quick blog update: I have added a new link at the top of the page called "Recipes". If you click it, you will be able to see all the posts that are related to cooking and food.

    1. He really did. I, on the other hand, didn't have a good time, picking out various finds in the filed, that got stuck to him :)

  11. I love daisies and have never seen a field that full of them. all of the photos are bright and cheery and happy and gorgeous....

  12. The sky and some of the terrain looks very much like Southwest USA. Blue skies make such a difference in mood during a cold day.

    1. There is a resemblance, I agree. The typical days in these regions are warm and dry, which creates lots of dried out flora.

  13. Hello, Sky King. Looks like I came by at the right time. We need a little sunshine in Georgia today. We have snow sitting in the trees and are awaiting some ice. Your photos are not only excellent, they are comforting on this cold, cold day. Love those brilliant colors.

  28. You are an interesting young man, and quite talented, and I am so happy you came by my blog to visit one day and have stayed as a friend! These photos are just beautiful...the golden browns of fall is a range of gorgeous color, splattered with little stars of other hues (the flowers, the pomegranates) and crowned with glorious azure! Any of one of these shots could be enlarged, framed and hung, and I hope you do have a venue where you show your work in that way, as well as here on the blog. Loved seeing your sweet little dog again too.
