Plitvice Lakes


No words—just spectacular!

I stumbled into this photo in the Fotocommunity Galerie. The site is in German but you don't really need to know German to figure out previous (zurück) and next (weiter). This site is always worth a browse for the high quality photography.

Plitvice Lakes is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and national park in Croatia. The minerals and algae combined with the angle of the sun create some amazing blue and green shades in the water. In 1991, it was the site of the first armed conflict of the Croatian war that resulted in fatalities. Plitvice Lakes National Park was recognized as mine-free in 1998 and is one of the most popular Croatian tourist attractions today. Wikipedia has the full story.
