Visiting Sibenik [Part 8/9]: Remnants of the Past

As we made our way to the top part of the fortress of St. Nicholas, the sun was beginning to set, and some wonderful light greeted us. The upper structure of the fortification has a big plateau, and there are many look out spots. So we started to explore the various nook and crannies. Come along for this penultimate part of our summer vacation photo series.

 There are many corners to explore here.








The view to the south-west. A small boat is approaching the Sibenik harbor, just a couple of miles away from the fort.






 These highest points of the fortress, really offered a great point for portraits.




 And then the fight broke loose :D


 Clash!






 As we were sitting on the outer walls, we could see Sibenik in the distance.




 As we were departing the fortress, other tourists were arriving.



 One final look at the ruins...


 ...and we were headed back into the bay.


End of Part Eight
To be continued...

And we are almost done! Next part is the finale, and I think I may have saved the best for last. See you next time! Until then here is a small preview:

  3. Mersad, echt wahnsinnig gute Bilder!!! Das 4. mit dem Sonnenlicht besonders schön und die zwei "Amazonenmädchen", wie sie kämpfen, auch total cooles Thema. Du machst super Portraits, Menschenfotos. Ich kann Menschen nicht fotografieren und mag auch nicht, weil ich nichts Interessantes dabei finde, aber deine Bilder fesseln mich. Das letzte Foto hast schon einmal gehabt, aber hier nochmal: genial, wunderschön, wie ein Prospektcover von einem Wellnesskatalog, oder wie ein CD-Umschalg von einer großen Sängerin! Liebe Grüße

  5. How nice to have the place nearly to yourselves so you could have so much fun with your photos!

  6. The light and shadows gave depth and symmetry to your pictures and the girls ... what can I say, beautiful (wife? sister? girlfriends? ... not telling:) . I love the history in these pictures and your girls reenacting battles of the past is just fun. This is a wonderful tour of a place I will probably never see in person ... and I look forward to your final episode.

  10. Enjoyed so much catching up on missed posts Mersad.. oh la! what a trip, what marvellous images you've taken! I can see why the St. Nicholas fortress was your favourite, the images from inside last post were spectacular.. that place is a photographers dream oui! Loved the way you led the eye off on a mystery through arches, around secret corners and up/down stairs, brilliant!

    1. Thank you for your visits and checking back. As you said, it's a photographer's dream to visit such a place, and I'm lucky to say that I have been here three times now.

  11. You were so lucky to travel with two very beautiful models to ad a touch of glamor to your gorgeous photographs. The depth of color in your shots is so stunning.

  12. Your beautiful photos convey a sense of fun and adventure on your visit to the fortress. Jasmina and Selma are perfect models to add a touch of style and glamour. These might be photos that I would expect to see in a fashion magazine.

  13. These posts get better as we progress through your holiday.
    It is a great place for portraits but the skies are perfect.

    1. Thank you. I think that's because of the locations we visited. As soon as you drift away from the usual tourist spots it gets better.

  14. magnificent images. Mersad do you know what the little black circles are on the ground in image # 2.

    And it looks like it was raining in the distance in image no 29.

    1. #2 I think they are docking posts. Looks to me like something was bound to these metal circles.
      #30 and #32 Somewhere in the distance, rain was falling, and it was caught on camera :)

  20. Ich bin wieder voll begeistert von deinen Fotos. Egal ob nur Natur oder auch Menschenfotografie. Du weißt es alles genau in Szene zu setzen, und absolut lustig ist der "Stockkampf". Macht mir immer sehr viel Spaß bei dir reinzuschauen.
