Summertime Sarajevo


A summertime view (a stitch of two horizontal pictures) of Sarajevo from the White Fortress above the city.  Famous (infamous?) for its smog during the winter, the city couldn't seem to escape the haze in June 2017, either, but, overall, the late spring colors were bold and beautiful.

Waiting for the Sunset


While waiting about 45 minutes at the Croatia-Bosnia & Herzegovina border, the sky blew up.  After finally making it through customs and border control, we stopped at a gas station for gas and pictures.  The church on the horizon is the Church of St. Elijah in Brod, Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Old Bridge as Cold Winter Turns to Spring


We finished a pleasant day out in the south of Bosnia & Herzegovina in Mostar, home of the world-famous Old Bridge.  It was bitterly cold thanks to a strong, biting wind, and without the trees, the view down the Neretva River isn’t quite as pretty.  Still, it was a cool view and worthy of trying to take a picture.

Vijećnica


Sarajevo’s restored Austro-Hungarian city hall at dusk.  I went out for a harvest moon, but it was behind clouds, so I found this instead.

Fall Flowers and Winter Snows


After a weather forecast that called for rain, this dusting of snow was what the morning brought, and it provided for some nice contrasts with the last leaves and flowers of fall.

Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween!  We try to carve jack-o'-lanterns every year.  This year, our two oldest children pretty much did their own.  It’s a fun tradition, although a little messy.  Taking pictures of them is somewhat hard, but a tripod, a long exposure, and some backlighting kind of help things out.
