I spent most of the day hiking in the park – with the weather alternating between sunny and warm, and cold and raining! Typical Icelandic weather… At the end of the day I got back to my car and was heading back to my hotel, when I spotted a small road heading off towards a glacier in the distance. I followed it, and boy was it worth it! At the end of the road – a beautiful view of this glacier with a light blue tinge.
A view of the town of Perast on the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro. This was taken from a boat heading out to one of two man-made islands in the bay, called Our Lady of the Rocks. There is a small Roman Catholic church on the island which is open for visitors, but for me the highlight was the view back towards Perast. I was also very lucky with my timing – as I arrived a boat left the island with a big group of tourists, leaving just me and two other people on the island.
More than a year ago I took 2 shots in the beautiful town of Seyðisfjörður in eastern Iceland – you know the type; good enough to keep, but not special enough to post. Then recently I decided to look back through my pictures and came across these 2 shots which just so happened to be taken from the same spot but looking at slightly different angles – perfect for a panorama!
Lovćen National Park sits high above the bay of Kotor; the road from Kotor up to the top is a narrow road with more than 25 hairpin turns – each one offering a more spectacular view than the one before. At the top, you can see across the fjord that forms the bay, with Kotor nestled under the trees at the end of the bay.
