    One of the best known Croatian National Parks is an excellent photographic destination in all seasons, but Winter really makes it appear like a fairytale place.

    Photographed long ago with the smallest camera I ever had (Sony DSC T7), the Sava river rapids in Zageb appeared smoothed down and lazy. This artificial weir has been built to keep the water level optimal for thermo-electric plant intake. In building this, people used crushed remains of torn-down buildings, and many reinforcing iron rods are still sticking out into the flow, waiting for swimmers and kayaks. Because this place contains so many hidden dangers it is strictly off-limits for any and all human activity. A pity, really. Could have been built to be both sport-friendly and safe...

    This is one well-organized, fenced-off Archery Training Field. The background begins with a parking lot and continues to an open, roofed shed where archers can setup their tackle, take a breath between shooting rounds, and share their experience. To the right is the grill arrangement for many less formal occasions that the merry band likes. Birthdays, weekends and holidays are easy, of course, but at times no reason can be a good enough reason too. The Standline is about five meters into the field, one line for all target distances. The targets begin from test distance of 3 meters, where new or repaired equipment is checked. Ten meter target(s) will be the next, followed by 30, 50, 70 and 90 meters. All other distances are visually interpolated, and shot at by archers moving forward from the basic standline. This happens only when other targets are not used, otherwise a certain target will be moved to the required distance. All archers on any target shoot together and retrieve their arrows together as well. There is no shooting while the arrows are retrieved from the targets, or are being searched for in the "grazing area". The search for arrows in the grass is funny to onlookers, not so funny for searchers. You wouldnt believe how an arrow can disappear, even in super-short grass. The way the Luck works, any archer is more likely to find an arrow other than their own. Thus, everyone goes looking as it shortens the search time. Also, no-one walks the field barefoot, in spite of the heightened probability of finding an arrow in such fashion. Ideally, the far end of the arrow flight area is backed by an earthen hill. It is absolutely forbidden to be there, except when no-one is shooting or when all are looking for stray arrows. Did you know that an arrow can penetrate through the bulletproof vest? Arrows tipped by bladed hunting heads would hardly slow down, but even sport points can do that. Its the principle the arrow works on that makes all the diference. Generally, arrows are wicked and extremely dangerous projectiles, so one must solidly cover every possible safety aspect. All in all, its a fascinating sport where you are fighting your own character traits, since an archer is literally a part of their weapon; its frame, aiming and energy source. This deceivingly simple combination mercilessly shows all personal shortcomings right there on the target, and not many people can stand so much truth!

    Archery onlookers may need to be somewhat educated about what goes on in the field. Archers taking aim and releasing arrows is pretty self-explaining, though might be a tad boring to watch. Things get interesting when they go toward the targets. Body language tells it all! Those walking in upright position looking straight ahead are those which have hit their marks true, and also those which thoroughly understand their sport. Those that walk broken-back-fashion looking at the ground are "grazers" for lost arrows. It is further confirmed when they proceed way behind the target stand. You cant hear the swearing, but its there... The sourface who examines the bow upon return is not satisfied, and tries to find and place the blame with the tackle. He often unpacks the tool kit and forfeits the next shooting round, fumbling and mumbling trough the next ten minutes. Avoid talking to him at that time, and keep the safe distance. Truth is, the bow is rarely the culprit but humans are like that; blame anything but themselves! It is the other way around: an archer is the single most important part of the whole arangement, and the mechanical parts are just mercilessly pointing out some among so many human errors and mistakes. Archery is best described as an exercise in displaying human lack of repeating precision. This sport isnt for just anyone. It takes courage to admit ones own shortcomings, to have this publicly shown, and to strive to transcend it. Thats why many try it just to abandon the sport in frustration, for it is not easy to fight oneself. Those that remain become better persons.

    ... there was an Underwater Photography Contest that asked for "creative" photos. This chandelier was at hand and so it got the chance to dwell 20 meters under the sea - for a while!

    My sisters pet crow enjoyed solving problems, like mysteriously opening the cage door just to remain inside, or stealing my keyring just to take it apart. I used fishing spinner snaps for individual keys, but the crow easily opened those, obviously having fun doing it.

    Croatian highway in winter offers great views while you drive toward the Adriatic coast.

    Made in wintertime, the clarity and colors of Adriatic cant be surpassed.

    Soft water action remodels hard rock using time and persistence. Waves pound the rock and tiny rivulets trickle down into the sea, melting stone, carving channels and leaving new forms behind. Same principle creates similar shapes both on macro and micro scale, visible here on one square foot of rocky seashore.

    Adriatic littoral here appears beautifully clean, until you look for details. And then youll see the results of oil carriers clandestine operations. Many pristine locations have been damaged by offshore cleaning of crude oil remnants from tanker holds, thanks to inhuman lack of basic conscience and responsibility of captains and crews which always remain unknown. For those who have never seen crude oil up close, let me add that lumps and blobs are not just laying there ready to be picked up. These are solidly glued to the rock, and it takes considerable force to dislodge even the smaller ones. By any basic moral and lawful standards, such cleanup work should be exclusively reserved for people which have perpetrated this crime. As to why it isnt so... your guess is as good as mine.

    Diving is really an addictive fun, although preparations can largely exceed the time spent underwater. Among other things, one has to spend hours loading air into the tanks. The din created by the compressor is on the opposite side of the silent world.

    Cousin to coral, this colonial animal thrives in depths where currents bring mcro-organisms to its myriads of polyps. Made with Nikonos III / 35m UW Nikkor /Sunpak Marine strobe and Fujichrome Sensia, deep in the Adriatic sea.
  • Country: Croatia
    Electric ray (Torpedo marmorata) in the shade of Adriatic depths. The fish has just arrived and landed on a nearby outcrop, raising clouds of sediment. Took some frames with Nikonos III, carefully keeping my distance. The fish can discharge pretty powerful electric shocks, and deep down its the last thing youd wish to experience! Electric fishes use their high voltage charge to hunt by stunning their prey. While the science generally understands their electric battery / capacity mechanism, were still know nothing about "the switch" which enables them to discharge at will.

    Common sole (Solea vulgaris) in the sandy shallows of the Adriatic, photographed by my diving buddy. in the cristal clear sea of Croatian Maritime Natl Park Kornati. The place cant really be described. It simply has to be experienced the way we did some 30 years ago.

    Actually, the mist comes from the plane that has just passed along the coast spraying mosquitoes. But ignoring the stinky reality, the scene was extremely photogenic! :)

    Dig a hole in the hill, build a retentive wall with pipe running through it, and fill the hole with shingle and sand. Soon the place will collect, filter, and start to deliver water. Depending on the place, it will at least be potable to cattle... and many times also fit for humans. TIP: Pick a place where you notice stronger rain runoff...

    Photographed maybe twenty years ago, during an Adriatic cruise on olden, converted wooden freight ship (trabakul). The evening was further beautified by all-pervading haze, which gave it a dreamlike quality. Shot with Nikonos V and 80mm UW Nikkor, on Fujichrome Sensia.
