Rural Views [Part 2/2]: The Path through the Woods

The afternoon was still relaxing after the rain as we made the entrance into the woods. A narrow path greeted us in the beginning and it was about to lead us all the way to the other side. It's not a very long walk, but the sights are plenty nevertheless. 

The countryside here will change soon, since a big highway is about to be built in the near vicinity. I am not quite sure what will stay and what will go, but I will try to document the change through images once it happens.

This is a multi-part series:
Part One: A Family Outing
Part Two: The Path through the Woods

We stopped for some portraits. I love this little stone fence. On the other side of the fence there are many fruit trees and other walking paths.



On the opposite side of the fence you can peek through the trees and get a clear sight of the fields which we walked on in part one.




I like the little drops of water ready to fall off the fruit.



The others were catching up to us.




We finally made it out of the woods and back to the country road, that would take us back where we started this small adventure.



In the end Beni needed to be carried as well, since the long walk took most of his energy away.




These three shots of Merjem were taken in the garden of the old family house, where my father grew up in. She loves to pose for photos, and is a real character.


Beni cooled down. ;)


Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoyed these rural views of the countryside of Bivolje Brdo. 

Next up on this blog is a massive multi-part series from our vacation to Sibenik in Croatia. Part One will be up this Friday.
For some preview images go to my Facebook page for this blog.

  12. Merjem reminds me of my daughter at that age. She was a ham for the camera, too! Beautiful country, although I hate to hear of the highway, but it's hard to avoid development these days.

  15. The portraits are wonderful and I especially like the way you arranged them, for example the one of you looking up ... at the droplets falling off the fruit. That was clever.

  16. Your portraits are really lovely but, it helps that you have such attractive subjects (Beni included). I love the sky in that third shot.

  19. Beautiful looking path.

  20. Merjem is very cute and a natural model. Highways can be good and bad both. The bad is that travelers will be speeding and missing all this beauty.

    1. That is true. But these regions here are not on any major roads anyway. Only people who live here or know someone here, venture out into the fields.

  21. Beautiful...I know that is an over-used word, but none the less, the hike through the woods is BEAUTIFUL!!

    Love the photos of your Merjem in the garden. So professional looking....well done.

    and the last one of Beni with the sunglasses made me laugh.

    Sad to know that this area will be changed for progress tho.
