W hat better way to cool off than to hide in the rich vegetation and feel the spray of Krka’s waterfalls on your face. Krka national park is a perfect day trip to switch from the salty Adriatic sea to the sweet, refreshing river ambience.
One can easily spend all day following the course of the river, from the smaller waterfalls to monasteries and the final, grandiose waterfall named Skradinski buk. Even in the strong and contrasty summer sun, there is always a shaded area to use as the spot to play with photography.
Another big advantage of this national park is the ability to swim underneath the biggest waterfall and truly experience its power. The nearby historical town of Skradin is also worth a visit, as well as the Croatian town of kings, Šibenik.
This tour can begin early and/or end late if you’re looking for the soft light and a less crowded time. During lunchtime we can visit local farms and enjoy the gastronomy and wines.
Required experience and equipment
All levels of photography experience are welcome, the tour leader will adapt to your knowledge and needs. Bring comfortable shoes for walking. Stone surfaces may be slippery if wet. Your camera bag, tripod and any other equipment should not be too heavy or large. Avoid rolling photo bags, use smaller backpacks. Polarizing and ND filters, as well as macro lenses are welcome, but not necessary.
Milan Šabić’s close bond to photography began in his school days when he was thrilled by the waterfalls at Plitvice Lakes, spending over a hundred rather expensive film images just on them. His interest in photography developed into something more during his time at the Art Academy and led him to participate in many exhibitions and undertake professional work. His experience in various types of photography – sport, aerial, wedding, landscape – will meet all your needs on this journey.
What better way is there to see Croatia than with a photographer whose job is to travel and explore. Igor Nobilo made photography his profession 18 years ago. Since then he has traveled extensively across Croatia and beyond on assignments and for fun. He has a passion for reportage and exploring the world around us. His expertise in photography enables him to provide a wide range of educational and practical lessons.
