Lonjsko polje’s storks / Nehaj fortress, Senj

A few shots from Croatia last week.

I was back in the village of Cigoc in Lonjsko polje, again – minus the floods on this occasion – to photograph some of the storks which nest there at this time of year….

…and also in Senj and Zumberak, while working on a feature on the Uskoks for hidden europe.
