I’m standing on the balcony. It’s cold and the trees are bare. For the first time in months I can see the homes on the other side of the hill. I sniff. I shiver. I take a sip of coffee. My mind wanders back to summer.
We pulled over to an excuse of a shoulder along a mountain road to get this picture. The water was so blue we couldn’t stop staring.
I’m not sure how we found this secluded spot. I remember the beach being super crowded.
You don’t realize it in the picture, but the water was so clear, I could see right down to the bottom of the lake.
This poor guy was being picked on by the bigger ducks, before their attention was diverted by a docking boat. I don’t know if he is wallowing in self pity or is simply relieved to have a minute to himself.
I love the drama here. One of my favourite pictures from the year.
This is the image of Croatia that I’ll take away. Blue water. White stone. Red tiled roof. Green mountains.
