Bavarian Summer

So far its been a wonderful summer in Bavaria. The best thing is that we are only half way through. Here are some everyday shots to share! Hope you enjoy.

Magic of Croatia

Yes, we have been on the road again! We went for some warmer weather in September, and headed to Croatia. Our first trip and certainly not our last. When we were in Slovenia earlier this year we went temptingly close to the boarder with Croatia, and I always wanted to go for the awesome coastline Croatia has. So we took the car and blasted through 4 countries and our first stop was at the Plitvice Lakes National Park. Please check out my post about that part!

It rained all the way from Germany, into Austria, and from Austria to Slovenia, and from Slovenia to Croatia, so it was quite a drive, but we found some cosy inexpensive accommodation outside the national park. After a couple days there we headed to the trendy town of Split. A very culture rich city, Split has a lot to offer.

Finally we took the ferry over to the island of Hvar. A real highlight, Hvar is a great place for a holiday. By this time the weather had also improved substantially! We stayed in a remote kind of nature camp Kamp LILI. Here we could set up our tent right on the edge of the cliff, 20m from the sea, was amazing.

Signs of Summer

I found that my signs of spring post was fairly popular, so here is a signs of summer! It certainly is becoming summer here in Bavaria. Its been quite warm, and the flowers, grasses, and trees have been exploding. Its now bright green everywhere with lots of life! I once again took my 180mm 2.8 Macro lens out for a walk, and had a look at what I could find.

Macro or close up photography is somehow quite.. therapeutic. Concentrating on the detail, one little part of the world is refreshing. Modern life is complex.
