On the SW slopes of Sveto Brdo (1751m) (Holy mountain), some 30mins below the summit, view towards W. In the lower left corner is summit of Vlaski Grad (1375m). Black is area (under Black Pine forests) around Crni Vrh (1110m) in Paklenica. By the very right edge is white rocky summit of Bojin Kuk (1110m). Most notable islands are Pag and Vir. Further behind are smaller and green islands of outer Zadar archipelagos. Clouds on the horizon are above Italy, on the other side of Adriatic. Photo: Aleksandar Gospic

Nice harmony!

I like the harmony of this picture - mountains, sea and sky, mountains being spiced by filigran sharp peaks, sea with islands and sky with some clouds. Also the man fits in perfectly.

Re: Nice harmony!

Thanks Vid!! It was perfect day, crystal clear but cold. The only minus is that we couldn't seat down on the summit and enjoy the views for an hour at least. We had to run after 10mins, it was too cold because of the wind.

Very impressing picture

I hiked these magic mountains a few times myself. So I experienced those beautiful sceneries directly. I must admit that I haven´t seen more impressive pictures of Velebit yet than yours. This kind of intensity within the pictures one only can reach when he loves nature and mountains.
That´s what I feel watching your photos. Go on like that...god bless you.
