Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny ( Boat )

This week’s DP photo challenge theme is Tiny.

I suppose “tiny” is relative.

Things look small when compared with large objects in the surrounding.dscf0908

This is an example; the photo was taken in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

The boat looks really small when compared with the castle standing on top of an island.

Even the bird on the right looks somewhat big.

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Plitvice Lakes 2 )

This week’s photo challenge is H2O.

I have request to post some more images of water in the Plitvice National lakes.

There are some places on earth which make you think you are totally engulfed in a world of water.dscf0300

The Plitvice National Lakes in Croatia is one of them.

I was standing there taking a photo;  what occurred to me was that water was coming towards me from all sides.

In this series I will be showing some of them with water as the main feature.

Hope you like them!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia

This week’s photo challenge is Nostalgia.

Can’t help having this feeling when I walked pass a small store in Dubrovnik, Croatia near to the Dubrovnik walls.dscf0945

The radio captured my eye. It was the sort of radio we had some three decades ago.

Timber casing and big knobs for tuning and volume.

If not for the limestone tiles and walls, my mind would have wandered back in time.

How small and compact things have become!

 

Blue, Blue, My World is Blue 3 . . . . . . . .

I think I am cheating a bit.

This is not exactly blue; but this photo contains the two colors I like – blue and green.

Like the other photos, the water is blue.dscf0274a

The photo was taken in the Plitvice national Lakes in Croatia.

Again, the water has a lot of calcium.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge ( of the Adriatic Sea )

The theme for this week’s photo challenge is Edge.

I came closest to the Adriatic sea when I traveled on Hvar Island, Croatia.dscf0610

Strolling round the edges of the island everyday was my favorite pastime.

I have never seen a sea that blue and water so clear and azure.

Gazing out to the sea gave me the serenity.dscf0472

The coastline with the local trees was so picturesque.

The weather was good with plenty of sunshine – an ideal place for a photographer.dscf0474

Here are some photos taken of the edges of the island.

Invariably, they have beautiful trees and plants complementing the beautiful coast.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge ( Cliff )

This week’s photo challenge is Edge.

Sea cliffs are sharp dividing edges between the sea and the land behind.dscf0936

They have withstood thousands of years of waves pounding on their face.

Some of them may have been formed from sea caves after the top part collapsed.

The cliffs here are located on the shoreline of the Dubrovnik medieval town.dscf0937

I like the very steep face.

The other photo shows in more detail the lower part of the cliffs which have to batter the sea in its never ending battle.
