The crab

… and as I was strolling along the sand minding my own business, up came this huge crab out of the water that started crawling along beside me demanding my attention.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

It’s a stunning place without a doubt. After days of rain, the waterfalls were energised and energising. You might think it’s easier to photograph the lakes and falls once the constant downpour stops. Not so! The absence of rain and the appearance of the sun brought the tourists in at what seemed to be a rate of a dozen coachloads every 10 minutes. As a result, the wooden walkways shook constantly, and I couldn’t very well block the path by hanging around with my tripod and backpack. So the good news is that I’ll be going again, when the coachloads have gone, whenever that is.

Plitvice walkway #2

A few paces around the corner and the path was under 15 cm of water on account of several days of rain. Not so good for flimsy shoes, but great for the waterfalls!

Plitvice walkway #1

It wasn’t the first wooden path I walked across at Plitvice, but it was my favourite: both for the cool, leafy shade it provided, and the play of light, leaves and water. I could have spent the entire day here.

Neist Point Lighthouse at the tip. Beyond, the islands of North and South Uist, and then the Atlantic Ocean. Wet, windy and wonderful._MG_8159
