Mountains at Sunset

On the second to last day we spent the evening driving around the mountain roads near our hotel. We got a good view of the sunset from a different vantage point, and saw a ruined house-thingy in a wall.

I’m currently regretting not posting these as I was there, because I fell like things have been lost in the two months since we came back….

Krka National Park

On the fifth day, we got off our lazy bottoms and went somewhere! It was an early start, as Krka was 2 hours away, and for some reason the people we booked the trip with felt it was necessary to stop off at another town for an hour.

Krka wasn’t too busy, but it was pretty dry, and I feel like it didn’t look as epic as it could have.

It was still pretty though, just not quite as good as I was expecting.

Croatia

At the ripe old age of 31 I have never stopped awake for 24 hours before. I almost made it on the day we went on holiday, but I had squeezed in a 20 minute nap in the evening, so I’m not sure that it counted.

We had a rubbish flight time, which meant we had to be at the airport for 4am. When we got to Croatia, they have a rule that you can’t check in until 3pm. We had packed some swim stuff but we were too tired to do anything really.

Cracking views of the sunset from the balcony though!

Fields of Sunshine

I’ve been meaning to get into this field and photograph it for a few weeks now. I drive past it every day on the way to work, and I know there is parking near it so it’s an ideal spot.

For whatever reason though, it’s taken me ages to go to it and photograph it. I was worried today that I was going a bit early. The sun doesn’t set until 9, and I set out just before 7, but it turns out that it clouded over just as I was leaving, and the sun was just at the right height in the sky.

I felt I was pretty lucky with the bees too! So cute and fluffy and buzzy ^_^

Norway photos part 2

The (possibly) last batch of the photos from Norway. The further away the holiday gets, the more I forget how impossibly expensive it was; and how impossibly beautiful it all was.
