Photographer's Note

Taken on my recent trip to Croatia on the beautiful Island of Mljet. An island in the southern Dalmatian archi-pel-ago, south of the Peljesac Peninsula, separated from it by the Mljet channel; area 100.4 sq km; population 1,237. The relief is characterized by ranges of limestone elevations and numerous karst valleys and fields (Polacno, Ivanovo, Blatsko, Kneze Polje). South of the highest crest (Veli Grad, 514 m) is the largest field zone (Babino Polje). In the extreme north-western part of the island is the submerged valley of Mljet Lakes: Malo and Veliko (Small and Big). Small Lake (area 24 hectares, depth up to 29.5 m) is connected with a 30-m long canal with Big Lake. Big Lake (area 145 hectares, depth up to 46 m) is connected with the open sea by a shallow, 30-m long canal called Soline. A powerful sea current occurs in both channels, which changes its direction every six hours due to ebb and flow. In the Middle Ages, the change of direction of the sea current was used for water mills. In the interior of the island are -another four small, submerged karst valleys, called "blatine" or "slatine" (eel fishing grounds). Larger coves are Luka, Polaca, Tatinica, Sobra, Luka Prozura, Okuklje, Saplunara; along the coast are numerous islets.

Using a Canon 5D, Canon 17-40L, Polarizer and ND Grad Filters.
