Shadow Shot Sunday 21 - Croatia

Some simple reflections this week.... I am still experiencing sensory overload from my recent travels this summer which took me to the States, Europe and Britain, and thus still feel the need to post about these places before I get back to writing about Mexico.

These shots were all taken in the beautiful harbour of Dubrovnik's Old Town where it is impossible to ignore the postcard-like picturesque qualities of the place...

Croatia is a most rewarding travel destination - and the blue of the water, green of the shutters, white of the stone will stay in your memory long after you have returned home.

I love the blue of those little boats. You've captured shadows within their reflections, a two-fer!

I enjoyed reading your travel posts and looking at all the amazing photos. Thanks for sharing them.

The second shot of the wave is just fabulous, like a Monet painting, a study of fluid in motion...good catch!

Two blue boats bobbing
gently in the safe harbor—
lilting lullaby.
