Sights to see, Places to visit: Lake Blidinje/ Mjesta za posjetiti, znamenitosti za vidjeti : jezero Blidinje

Today we shall talk about Lake Blidinje. As the name would imply, this lake is located in the nature park Blidinje. It is the largest mountain lake in Bosnia and Herzegovina, located at an elevation of 1.885 meters (3.888 feet). I personally haven't seen a mountain lake of this size before. There is something almost surreal about seeing a lake in mountains, especially at this kind of altitude. I wonder is anyone  brave enough to swim in there. Maybe I will dare it some other time. This lake isn't very deep, its maximal dept is about 3 meters and its average dept is only 0.5 m. Its width and length are a bit over 2 km, but these two can vary depending on weather conditions. I can tell you that this lake was a very impressive sight. Anyhow, you will get to tour it too, at least virtually, because today I will show you lake Blidinje from different angles. These photographs were taken on two locations, one right next to the lake and the second one a bit higher above (on those photographs you can see the lake in the background. There are about 30 photographs in this post, I hope that's not too much. I'm wearing the same dress, but I had to replace my shoes with sandals because it was too hot. Too warm at this height, at this altitude? That's Herzegovina for you, you can't escape the heat, not even in the mountains. The mountain air felt very fresh and sweet, but the sun was merciless.

Danas ćemo pričati o jezeru Blidinje. Kao što ime da pretpostaviti, ovo jezero smješteno je u parku prirode Blidinje. To je najveće planinsko jezero u Bosni i Hercegovini, a nalazi se na nadmorskoj visini koja iznosi 1.888 metara. Ja osobno nisam prije nikad vidjela toliko planinsko jezero. Ima nešto gotovo nadnaravno u prisutnosti jezera u planinama, pogotovo na ovolikoj visini. Pitam se je li itko toliko hrabar za plivanje u ovom jezeru. Tko zna, možda se ja idući put usudim. Ovo jezero nije veoma duboko, njegova maksimalna dubina je svega tri metra, a prosječna samo pola metra. Širina i dužina su oko dva kilometra, ali mogu varirati ovisno o vremenskim prilikama. Mogu vam reći da je ovo jezero vrlo impresivan prizor. Vi ćete također malo ga razgledati, barem virtualno, jer ću vam pokazati ovo jezero iz više kutova. Ove fotografije su uslikane na dvije lokacije, jedna od lokacije je odmah pokraj jezera, a druga malo poviše i na tim fotografijama jezero možete vidjeti u pozadini. Ima oko 30 fotografija u ovoj objavi, nadam se da vam to nije previše. Nosim istu haljinu, ali morala sam promijeniti cipele jer mi je bilo previše vruće. Previše vruće na toj visini? To vam je Hercegovina, ni u planini ne možete pobjeći visokim temperaturama. Planinski zrak bio je svjež i sladak, ali sunce je bilo nemilosrdno.

    Haven't heard before about this lake but now I know ! Wish I could visit it someday because it looks breath taking! Don't you think it is amazing how we can feel so little when it comes to the wonders of nature? :o Love every picture because it seems that you're really having a good time (and that dress is amazing tho, you always pick great garments and beautiful destinations!)

  9. How interesting the lake is only 3 metres deep at most, it truly looks as though it'd be much, much deeper! Ah, once again you've transported me to a warmer climate Ivana, haha :) Your patterned dress is beautifully colourful - such a fun and busy print! Funnily enough, I think I prefer it without the tights, it matches the sunny (and hot!) scenery for the shoot :) Hope you're having a fab week so far...

  22. The lake and mountains together really do make for a naturally beautiful composition all on it's own. It's nice to be able to get ta tour via your photos. It seems like a very peaceful area as there is no traffic behind you on the road in these photos, or did you just wait for them to pass by. I've always liked this dress on you!

  24. The first photo confused me - so thanks for explianing in the photos it was a failed panorama. I've seen some funny failed panorama shots around! :)

    Your dress is lovely - with sandals and layered up with tights. It looks like such a nice place to visit too.

    Hope you're having a great week :)

  28. Vidi se da si uzivala, prosto sijas na svakoj fotografiji! Divno jezero, bogami ne znam da li bih ja izdrzala da se ne bucnem u njemu :-)

  29. Ja sam se zaljubila u planinska jezera još kad sam kao dete bila na Durmitoru u Crnoj Gori. Tako mi je nestvarna činjenica da se na velikoj visini pruža vodena površina koja se zimi zaledi, a predeli su uvek jedni od onih koji zaustavljaju dah. Priroda na tvojim slikama je beskrajno lepa. Ne znam koliko puta sam već pogledala slike i šta da ti kažem osim da sam oduševljena. Opet mi nekako posebno zračiš i prosto se vidi kako ambijent utiče na tebe, a ti tu energiju prenosiš nama ovde. Očaravajuće mesto koje se nadam da ću nekada i sama posetiti. Ja bih izbegla kupanje jer sam užasno zimogrožljiva pa ulazim isključivo u toplu vodu :)

  31. I have visited a few mountain lakes, here in Nepal as well as in Abkhazia. They all differ with unique beauty and charm and here on these photos I can see and feel the uniqueness of this lake too. I am really surprised that being quite a large lake it is not deep at all.

  32. Ništa ne može nadmašiti ovakav tip opuštanja! Divna je lokacija, sjajno ti se ova haljinica uklopila u okolinu, baš mi se sviđa! :) I neka nama još malo sunca, jedino što mi zimi fali su haljinice na gole noge tako da uživaj dok traje! :)

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

HOW TO STYLE TARTAN IN A CASUAL WAY? OUTFIT PROPOSALS + FASHION ILLUSTRATION

I was thinking about why I like tartan pattern so much, when one reason crossed my mind. I figured that it probably has something to do with the history and the culture behind this particular pattern. After all, I always say that traditional and folklore clothing (be it original or reproduced) carries additional value. Traditional patterns can be such an wonderful source of inspiration. Traditional patters have soul to them, one might say. The history of tartan is particularly interesting. Today we mostly associate tartan with Scotland, but according to some historians, tartan like fabrics were used by ancient Celtic populations spreading across the British Isles as early as the sixth and the eight century BC. Well, that one old pattern for sure! However, even if tartan clothes are really as old as ancient Celts, it is the still Scotland that is responsible for tartan we know today. Did you know that different tartan patterns can represent different Scottish families? Something like …
