Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

April 14, 2014


Croatia was a country that I always especially wanted to visit during the spring or summertime when the trees would all be in bloom and everything would be green. But, life doesn’t always work out exactly according to our plans, so when the opportunity came up to visit during March, I agreed. Of course I was excited to visit this country that I had heard was so beautiful, but I was still slightly disappointed that it wouldn’t be in its “prime” while we were there. In fact, due to high water levels, half the park was even closed and off limits to us =( [they adjusted the entrance price accordingly]. The upside was that the place was practically deserted, which meant we had plenty of space to wander and take photos without others crowding in the way. Of course that also meant that most of the cafes, etc were all closed. And it was rainy. And cold. But we survived and really enjoyed it. I definitely want to go back again sometime when everything is green. Much better for photography, I think.  Plus it’s really hard to get good photos while juggling an umbrella, a bag, and trying to keep the raindrops off the camera lens.
But, here are some “dead” views of Plitvice Lakes. You probably don’t see it like this too often in photos. 😉




These winding steps take you down into a cool cave and out through to the lakes


Looking down at the cool boardwalk that lets you walk out over the water




Heading down into the cave


Looking out on the way down











We couldn’t go visit these falls due to the high water levels, so had to be content with viewing them from the boat















These little ladder-looking things were placed at various places around the park due to the high water levels. At some points we were walking over water on them.

    It’s so beautiful, it’s hard to imagine it any prettier! I hope you can go back so I can see it. 😉
