Mittens @ Monument Valley. No wonder it is a favorite spot for Hollywood. I am excited for Transformers IV as it was being shot at this place. It was difficult to get shots here and had to wait for a while to get this, due to sand storm.

Crazy landscape at Point of Arches in northwest USA. It was an unusual sunny day in the most humid area of the States. Unbelievable, but half the day I met only six people at this more as dreamlike place. In the evening I had the scene alone for me. Even better :-).

This is one of the most photographed spots in Yosemite National Park.

I probably have 15 different versions of Valley View shot at different times. I never shared any of them. But this one looked so special to me. The clouds, movement of the water, color of the trees and of course the beautiful Valley in the background. So here it is.

I hope you like it…

Biogradsko lake
The National Park is 54 km² in area. Basic elements of the Park are: untouched forest, large mountain slopes and tops over 2,000 meters high, six glacial lakes, five at an altitude of 1,820 meters and one easy accessible low land lake located at the very entrance to the park, Biogradsko Lake. Swift streams cut through scenery of Biogradska Gora, green pastures and clear lakes reflecting centennial forests. The Park is renowned as a unique geomorphological region and, as such, it is attractive for scientific research. The seat of the park is in Kolašin. The national park abounds in cultural and historic heritage consisting of sacral monuments national building and archeological localities. Numerous authentic buildings of traditional architecture are found throughout the pastures and villages next to the virgin forest reserve on the Bjelasica mountain range.

Ecology[edit]
Although it is the one of smallest of five national parks in Montenegro, Biogradska Gora National Park contains great diversity of flora and fauna. There are 26 different habitats of plants with 220 different plants, 150 kinds of birds, and 10 kinds of mammals live in this Park and in its forest, there are 86 kinds of trees and shrubs. In the waters of the park exist three kinds of trout and 350 kinds of insects. Rainfall is extremely high in the area, averaging up to 100 inches per year, and allows the growth of temperate rainforest. One of the unique features of the park is its virgin forest, Biogradska Gora (16 km²) with trees over five hundred years old. In the very heart of Biogradska’s virgin forest is Biogradsko Lake, the largest glacier lake in this National park. The most common tree species around the lake are European Beech, Sycamore Maple and European Ash, and on the slopes Beech and Silver Fir.

History of the Park

Biogradsko lake
When Kolašin liberated from Turkish rule in 1878, people from the Morača and Rovca presented a part of the forest to King Nikola I Petrović-Njegoš of Montenegro. This forest was known as “Branik Kralja Nikole” and was protected. Biogradska Gora was proclaimed a National Park in 1952.

Historical events[edit]
In close vicinity of the National Park, there took place a battle between the Turks on one side and Montenegrins and Serbs on the other side. There were also important battles fought in the First Balkan War of 1912 and this region represented the center of activities of partisans in World War II. For years back, shepherds used rich pasture in this region for grazing sheep and other cattle. These slopes still used as pastures and visitors to the park can enjoy the hospitality of shepherds in their summer houses.

Fighting the Sun || Yosemite Valley, California, USA – More photos on my Facebook Page or Instagram @jasoncrowellphoto

There is something great about shooting for starbursts directly into the sun. One part is to hope you have a clean sensor and lens as every bit of dust and gunk will make itself known to you very fast

Any feedback is welcome!
