This past fall I managed a visit to the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, including Dubrovnik and Split, and to Zagreb, the Croatian capital, and found a fascinating mix of history and cultures, both ancient and modern, and enjoyed the chance to see some relatively undeveloped parts of Eastern Europe. I particularly enjoyed visiting Plitvice Lakes, a national park with beautiful lakes and waterfalls.
Shortly afterward I spent some time in the Appalachian Mountains (Shenandoah and the Great Smokies), a region I have wanted to visit and photograph for some time. It was during fall color, which is distinctly different from the west coast and one of the best times to visit the east.
I have included some shots from these trips on my website at Recently Added – check them out. I expect to have some of them on exhibit at my upcoming spring shows.
