July 24. The heat wave is over I think. It started to rain in late afternoon and when I looked out the window, the light was freaky and there was a rainbow looming in the distance. The photos are not much, the best I can do from my apartment window. I keep kicking myself for not seeing the rainbow earlier and getting my ass out to the fields to get a nicer foreground. Oh well, there will be other rainbows I guess.
With the stable hot and sunny weather forecast I decided to spend a couple of days hiking in the Julian Alps. My friend Nataša and I started on a Saturday afternoon by climbing to the Komna hut where we stayed overnight, and the following morning we got up really early to have enough time to hike to some of the nearby lakes and peaks. Due to the heat we came back dehydrated and exhausted, but as usual - it was worth it! :)
We drive to Island Krk in Croatia at least once a month, but we're rarely blessed with dramatic skies, so the journey is usually nothing to write home about. But this one Friday in early July puffy white clouds embellished the blue sky. Plus I've been meaning to document the landscapes and seascape along the way for quite some time now. This was a perfect opportunity!
And even though by the evening the clouds dissipated, the atmosphere was so crisp and the light so sweet that we decided to climb a nearby hill to watch the sunset from there.
