As you know, I wasn’t exactly happy about the organization of Plitvice Lakes. I wrote yesterday about how the infrastructure of this national park that pulls over 1.1 million visitors a year is nowhere near what it should be. Rather than a fantastic place to wander and explore, it is a mission to get around the park, and Plitvice Lakes is in grand need of infrastructure improvements. Obviously, I wasn’t trying to deter anyone from visiting, I was just hoping that some attention would be brought to light here so that adjustments are made at the park.
That being said, there are few places more incredible in Europe. Once you get around all the barriers of Plitvice, you see the vast amounts on beauty found here in the park. It really is one of the most stunning places on the planet. There are streams of perfect green water shooting out of each and ever slope, where the land is flat there are still lakes, and in the forests there is a perfect peace.
My time in Plitvice Lakes was marred by both struggles to get around the infrastructure as well as some bad weather, but I still managed to fire off the shutter of my camera quite a bit. Below, you’ll find a quick selection of my photos of Plitvice Lakes taken in the fall colours.
