|Lookout point with Korčula in the distance.|
Korčula is about two hours north of Dubrovnik, and I had been tipped off to how great it was by others who had visited.
The atmosphere is relaxed, the water crystal clear, and the food well priced. We stayed for hours.

Once I’d cleaned the chocolate of my butt, I looked up and saw the sky lit up like it was on fire. Sunset in Croatia is so dramatic!
We headed back into the old town before it got dark. The sky kept changing hue.

Dubrovnik sure put on a good show for my birthday. I don’t think it had anything to do with it being the opening of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, and the President being in town or anything.
People lined the streets. I know I’ve used the word festive a lot these past few weeks… but there’s no other word to describe it! Beautiful choral music filled the streets as thousands tried to catch a glimpse of the ceremony.
At about 10:30, Paul and I sat by the beach to watch fireworks over the harbour. They were spectacular.
The perfect end to a great birthday and a great trip. We flew out the next morning. I forgot to send the postcards.

what kind of camera are you guys using? x
Mostly we use a Canon 350D, but a surprising amount is shot on my iPhone too. It’s mainly in the processing though – we always shoot in raw, which means there’s tons of information still in the file after it’s been shot. I process the files in Adobe Bridge CS4 (which is awesome!)
ohh thanks – i have a VERY NICE point and shoot but was wondering about upgrading but as you said more in the processing xxxx
and we have adobe bridge cs3 here at work so may just have to “borrow” it x
Definitely worth it. And shoot in raw if your camera can – means you can process heaps more without it getting grainy. Lemme know if you get stuck getting started on Bridge – it’s easy to use but took me a while to figure out my way around it. x
