Paradise by the Waterfall


As a child watching TV, I remember seeing people bathing by a waterfall in what looked like paradise and always wanting to visit. Of all the places I have been fortunate enough to travel to, I had never come across anything like what I had seen on TV. On a visit to Croatia this summer I found it! I have already posted a picture from Krka National Park and will repeat again that it is an amazing place.  This waterfall, called Skrandinski Buk, came close to that paradise I saw on TV. And you can even go swimming by the waterfall (which I didn’t do).

Waterfalls are harder to shoot that you would think. My tripod broke earlier on this trip, but I was able to set the camera down on a bridge. I used an ND filter and a very small aperture to be able to get a good picture with a longer exposure. I would have liked to get a slightly different angle, but that wasn’t possible due to the broken tripod. Having made due with what was available, I am happy with this shot – and that I was able to capture a bit of paradise
