Weekend Escape [Part 1/3]: Arrival in the Mountains

Welcome to the first part of my new photo series. In it, we will be traveling to the mountains, mountain Prenj to be precize. Somewhere in the foot of these mountains my family has a cottage, where we often escape to. Come along on a weekend escape with us. I hope you will enjoy the images that follow.

This is a multi-part series. Other parts include:
Part One: Arrival in the Mountains
Part Two: Fences in the Countryside
Part Three: As the night rolls in



click on the images for a bigger view

As the mountain road was winding through the hills, the peaks of the mountain Prenj could be seen in the distance.



As we arrived the sun already began to slowly set behind the mountains.




The roof of our cottage in the light of the setting sun.



Some fires last year, destroyed parts of the woods that can be seen from our cottage. Luckily, most of it seems to have survived, but a few bald spots can be seen here and there.



On the other side of the small fence here, you can see the neighboring field, which is running a little wild.


But the field does provide for some interesting details.



Div has grwon up, and was also there with us on that day.



Hay here is usually loosely stacked on poles, as you can see in this next image.



As the sun was setting, we made our way deeper into the fields.


End of Part One
To be continued...

In the next part we will explore the countryside a bit more and see some fences and houses along the way. Div and my dog Beni will be with us, of course. :)

  17. There you are again Mersad, making me envious of your awesome shots, your adventure and the landscapes. I am so disappointed that last month when i was going to Myanmar, i bought my first tripod for that trip, then i forgot it while we are still here going to the airport. Of course it was not returned to me! I wonder if ever i will still be able to replace it. Sorry for that outpouring, hehe!

  18. Wow....diese fantastischen Fotos wieder, diese Wolkenformationen. Bin wieder hin und weg, und dort ein Cottage zu besitzen ist ein Traum. Da kann man so wirklich die Seele baumeln lassen.

    Herzliche Grüssle

  21. Being a yellow lab lover I had to spend time admiring Div's photograph. Of the pictures, the one that took my breath away was the second one. That sky scene is just phenomenal.

  22. Wow! I have never seen pictures as beautiful as yours. And the thought that there can be a cottage at that place, makes me go green! :)

  33. You are fortunate indeed to have a vacation spot in such a beautiful area. The "cottage" looks like it is rather large . . . a home instead of a small retreat. Incidentally, it seems that your photos take a long time to load; it may be my computer.
