Croatia really impressed me. The people were welcoming, and the sights were amazing. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I do like to plan my trips to ensure the main sights are visited, but I also like time for exploring. Looking at a map, I thought the town of Novigrad, about 20 minutes north of Zadar, would be worth a visit. There wasn’t much there, but it was a picturesque little town. On the way there, we passed by this small church out on a small island in this bay. It was called Sv. Duh and was not in any tour book or Website I had read. We spent about 20 minutes here just taking in the beautiful weather, the mountains, and this beautiful, ancient and small church.
Given the weather and evening light, this was a very easy photograph to take. Composition was the hardest. I tried a number of different angles to see what best brought out this landscape. I had the lens at a wide 15mm and found that getting a bit lower to the ground helped make the mountains look better. This picture really captures the beautiful of this part of Croatia
