Waterfalls Below Galovac Jezero in Plitvice Lakes National Park

Multiple streams flow over a sharp drop between two of the myriad lakes within Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes National Park. (Click for larger image) I made this image during a day trip to the park with my wife Ruth. We explored a significant portion of the park, but serious photography was extremely difficult due to the crowds of people everywhere as well as the very sunny weather! Waterfalls very often look their best under cloudy skies, so to make this image I had to wait for a lull in the crowds as well as a cloud over the sun. This national park is absolutely amazing; I’ve never seen any landscape quite like it. It’s got many, many lakes, each formed in a plateau made by seismic activity and erosion. In between each of the lakes is a waterfall. You can see a lot more photos and learn about the park here and here.
