Bosnian Landscapes

Today, a few of my favorite photographs from my recent trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Although much of Bosnia’s built environment was ravaged by war, many of its landscapes have retained a timeless beauty. Enjoy. (All photographs by the author.)

  1. I’m pretty sure that the Stari Most (Old Bridge), Mostar appeared in Michael Palin’s travel documentary New Europe? Cool. Must have been an interesting trip to a most interesting place. D
    PS: Did send an email to the address you provided the other day.
