Visions of Days Past

*UPDATE* The Series previewed here is now uploaded. You can visit it by clicking here.

As I am writing this, Photoshop is up and running in the background, waiting for me to return to editing. Two days ago I made another journey into, previously unseen territory, for a new series. This time i visited some landscapes and villages, located east from Mostar. I thought of posting the first part today, but since I took over 250 images, I am still editing and writing, so that's going to take the rest of the day.

I wanted to write this post to give you some sneak peeks into the things that'll come. You can expect part one to be uploaded tomorrow. The series will be called "Remains of the Past".

click on the images for a bigger view

The series will explore the vast landscapes of these regions of Herzegovina, with a visit to old villages, that have been abandoned and destroyed over time.


It's also a personal story of exploration and human nature, of things that were and that still haunt these regions today.


I hope to take you on a big journey and show you the beauty of the country as well as the melancholy that lingers.


I hope you'll have a great Sunday, and I'll see you tomorrow with part one. I hope you liked these sneak peeks. But there is so much to come, many different sights and locations. So stay tuned!

  3. It is a wonderful limestone area.
    What lens did you use for the first picture. The foreground looks a bit soft. It's still a grand scene. I maybe speak out of turn but I focus at anything over f11 at around a third in. It is easier to sharpen horizons with a bit of dodge and burn then i duplicate the final image sharpen and mask out the bad bits that halo.

    1. You are right. I did a f8 on the first one. But I think it turned out ok in the end. Usually I do f11 for landscapes as well.

  5. Your landscapes have a stark beauty, but this looks to be a hard land, stony and cold. Love the old stone wall photo. It speaks of hope and failure, and also has great texture. I am looking forward to seeing your future posts in this series.

    1. It's definitively a land that has seen a lot. There is much coldness here, masked by the beauty of nature.

    1. There will be lots of beauty in the series, but also lots of melancholy (which can be louring as well). Thanks for stopping by.
