Istrian interlude (2)

More images from my recent trip to Istria, Croatia, while working on the new guidebook, Istria. The Bradt Travel Guide.

Oprtalj (Portole)

The dry bed of the River Mirna at Kotli, near Roč and Hum. It had been an exceptionally dry summer, with no rain for a couple of months – this would usually be a roaring stream. The wooden channel in the background leads to a restored watermill, though of course, there was no water.

Love the golden light and “feeling” in these series, Rudolf. And the tight composition with the window, and of course the big, fat cheese and the local drink – wine or maybe stronger?

Love the rock outcrop – it looks like a pair of hands reaching to the sky.
