15 Sights of Summer from Southeast Europe

Summer is in full swing all around the northern hemisphere, and while summer brings with it common sights and feelings, it's just not the same summer everywhere. That's why I decided to showcase some typical summer scenes from Southeast Europe, specifically the Balkan region. I have put together a set of images that will take us from Slovenia in the northwest, all the way to Greece in the far southeast, displayed in no particular order.

  14. I truly enjoyed this grand tour through your lens. Places I would never see otherwise. I especially liked No. 4.

  15. Schöne Bilder.
    Das Bild mit der Sonnenbrille habe ich auch schon gemacht, aber näher an die Linse, daß man die Brille nicht sieht, also eigentlich nur als zweite Linse genutzt.
    Du warst schon bei Navagio? Ich bin großer Griechenlandfan und war schon an sehr vielen Orten in Griechenland, aber Zakynthos ist zu voll mit einer Art von Touristen und irgendwie fehlt mir von dort der Feeling, was mir sonst so Griechenland gibt, deshalb bin ich noch nicht dort gewesen.
    Liebe Grüße

  20. These are indeed lovely shots. Every time you post travel photos, I'm like a little kid in a cafeteria: I want one of everything. I particularly liked the photos of Perast and Bled!

  22. I have been to four of these places. My favorite photo is of Perast, a place I have not visited. I loved the near scene of houses and a tower along the coastline, with the dramatic mountains so close behind.

    My summer has been taken up with trying to clean out my house in West Hartford after 35 years. Time to get it ready to sell.

    1. That's a really big step. Hopefully you will document it and show some of it on your blog.

  23. These are, as always, stunning photos! You do such a good job of capturing not only the look of a place but the feel as well.

    Summer here has been preoccupied with moving into our new home and finding a job here at home...with a little photo-taking thrown in for good measure. It is winding down, though - teachers report for work beginning tomorrow and students return to classes in a week. It is too soon, and I've not gotten enough done this summer.

    Stopping by from Imagine-in-ing!

    1. Yeah, summer can fly by quickly when it comes to vacations. It takes a while in order to get going on chores, and by the time regular work returns, there is always a lot left to do. Good luck with the new home and school year.
