(LIKA, CROATIA)momzynoor:

The stunning Plitvice Lakes National Park lies in the Lika region of Croatia. The park is surrounded by the mountains Plješevica, Mala Kapela, and Medveđak, which are part of the Dinaric Alps. The 16 blue-green Plitvice Lakes, which are separated by natural dams of travertine, are situated on the Plitvice plateau. Waterfalls connect the lakes, and the tallest waterfall is Veliki Slap at 70 meters (230 feet) tall. The Plitvice lakes area boasts a large variety of interesting and colorful flora and fauna. Visitors can enjoy walking and hiking the many pathways and trails, or exploring the lakes by boat. The park itself has 3 hotels and a campsite, otherwise visitors can find accommodation at any of the number of villages and cities nearby.

Midnight sun at Grundarfjörður, Snæfellsnes by @PAkDocK on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Grundarfjörður is a small town, situated in the north of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west of Iceland. The town is situated in front of an impressive mountain range which has a slightly alpine look. On the sea side, there is a beautiful mountain called Kirkjufell which is a diverted piece of the mountain strip Mýrarhyrna. The mountain forms a small peninsula. The town itself is a charming, quiet, nice fishing village. Another awesome hidden corner in Iceland. This one was shot at 1.30 a.m., with the sun pointing at North, lighting all the town and the mountains nearby. It was quite cloudy, so, again, a long exposition would spread that fantastic light through the image. Grundarfjörður, Snæfellsnes, Iceland. 2010.

Standing Stone @ Staredam by angus clyne on Flickr.
Via Flickr: (WATERLOO, SCOTLAND) Yes, the cows came up to me and made my life hell until I gave up and went away. One of a pair of stones catching the first rays of the morning sun in a field not far from home, I will most likely post a shot of the other one some rainy day.
