Misty Valley of the River Neretva

I promise to stop with the valleys after this post, but I just couldn't leave these images here in the archives. While returning home, from the shoot out for my latest photo series, as I was beginning the drive down to Mostar, I had to stop once I saw this sight. The sun was setting and luckily I had an ND-filter by my side, because the first two shots were taken into direct sunlight.

You can see the river Neretva reflecting through the evening fog.



A more sombre view from the road down the mountains.


As I am writing this, massive snow falls have covered up most of the country, and I wonder what these mountains and valleys look like now...

  21. I am so glad you didn't leave this in your archives. Such a wonderful shot should be shared so the rest of us can see how talented you are. It is always rewarding to come to your blog, Mersad. Some time in the future could you explain how you are able to make the slide shows that show one picture at a time and then move to the next when we click the arrrow. I would love to do that with some of my groupings, but don't even know where to start. Thank you ... Hope your holidays were wonderful and wish you well in the New Year ...

  34. Hi Mersad,
    The view of the river is so pretty, so perfect in many ways.
    I have to go back and look for photos of Mostar on your blog.
    I read a bit about Mostar in a book I just completed reading -"Field Notes on a Compassionate Life" by Marc Ian Barasch - for information sharing purposes!

    Have a Beautiful Day!
    Peace :)
