This was captured in the magical city of Split, Croatia.

We wandered the streets and lane ways as soon as we arrived and found scene after scene that my camera loved. This arched doorway proved too good with the late afternoon light.

    Oh wow, this is wonderful – great use of light/shadows, love that sheen to the paving too. I’m a tad jealous, totally stuck for good locations at the moment.

  • Thanks so much, Trish! Croatia threw so many photo opp’s my way, I didn’t know what to do with them all. Ahh, location hunting is a pain, isn’t it!!
