majestic Mostar {Bosnia}



I almost cried when this scene was arranged in my camera frame. It's a special place where God's beauty and 16th c Ottoman ingenuity have come together to create something spectacular.  The Old Bridge {Stari Most}, was meticulously rebuilt to it's former glory after it crumbled in the war in the early 90's. The greeny-blue Neretva river that runs thru it, is otherwordly. The cobbled Old Town that surrounds the banks is charming and chaotic and filled with near-eastern treasures mixed with still-reminders of war. It was surreal to be there (and quite a trek of a day trip from Dubrovnik, involving no less than 6 border crossings round trip) but SO worth the effort. GO if you have the chance.
