15 Moody Landscapes from Bosnia and Herzegovina

I have always said that watching moody landscapes is very therapeutic. For me, seeing these tumultuous times in nature, in a weird way evokes calm. Maybe it's because you see that there are bigger things then you out there or simply the fact that those sights tend to be very interesting to look at, if not downright beautiful.

I never shy away from going out to shoot during stormy or bad weather. Most of my landscapes have an element of melancholy to them anyway, which is certainly underlined by the heavy clouds in the sky, winds rolling in or isolated places I get to photograph.


So anyway, here are 15 Moody Landscapes from Bosnia and Herzegovina, which I hope you will enjoy. For better reference I added numbers and titles to the images.

  3. Hello Mersad, gorgeous series of landscape shots.. They are lovely, it is too hard to choose a favorite, except I do tend to like the color more than B&W. Great post, enjoy your day!

  4. WOW! These are all wonderful. Now to answer your Question. In the distance lies he truth and ruins in the fog are 2 that draw you in. The one in the distance kies the truth could be somewhere in Ireland. I really like the sunset image.

    1. They loaded to me on various devices and two different connections quickly. The image size is not that big. Maybe it was something with your connection in a moment.

  13. Numbers 2 and 10 are my favorites. I like black and white and the way the hill cures up in the image is attractive. I am always drawn to autumn color, especially since I live in a place now that does not get any.

  14. I hope I get to Bosnia and Herzegovina someday to see these beautiful scenes for myself!

  24. I am always moved by your photos! And you can transform a not so good-looking setting to a wonderful work of art, i am so envious. When i was in New Zealand it was so disappointing to just look at the landscape inside a running bus, and can't even take a good shot of the changing landscape. I miss it much in seeing your photos. You should visit it too, you will get amazing shots there.

    1. I would love to visit New Zealand and it's definitively on my bucket list.

  25. A really beautiful set of photos as one would, of course, expect. I was in trigged, though, by the heading 'In the Distance Lies The Truth'. That's very thought provoking.

    1. The Title for that particular image was chosen deliberately, because the road leads into a small village that was destroyed in the war at the beginning of the 90s.

  26. I liked all the pictures but when scrolling through them again I realised that it was No.2. that drew me in. Your part of the world is beautiful, whatever the weather,.

  34. Gorgeous landscapes! I'm happy to get to know your country a little! I was drawn to number 7 the most but as said they were all gorgeous.

  35. Abandoned and Moody Orchard are probably my favorites in this lovely series. You would have loved the light here about half an hour ago. We had lovely, bright golden light above us but very dark rain-filled clouds about half a mile away. The light lasted for perhaps fifteen minutes before a heavy rain began, but it was beautiful.

  36. I love 'at the end of the day' the warm glow of the evening light is beautiful

  37. I have enjoyed this picture story you shared with all of us. Very beautiful photography and I appreciate the share. Number 3 was my very favorite but all of these are wonderful. Thank you for this post and have a wonderful week.

  38. These are so really beautiful and do draw you in. There is something about the autumn photo... beautiful but a sign of the colder season to come and kind of bittersweet.....Michelle

  39. Great shots! I really like the black and white one.
