[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is the finest example of an underground karst river. It flows out of a 200m cliff wall and single-handedly creates the Buna River. Unsurprisingly, the Ottoman sultan was impressed, and ordered a tekija to be built right next to it. This 16th century house/monastery was built for the Dervish cults and is still one of the most mystical places in all of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The region is also known for the diversity of its flora and a number of endemic species. At lower altitudes there are many evergreen plant and deciduous thicket species, while at higher altitudes in the hills there is sparse forest. Fertile cultivable land is suitable for the agriculture typical of the Mediterranean climate. (From: http://www.bhtourism.ba/eng/)

Hello Sibel,
what a beautiful sight, the colour of that water is very striking the texture in the rock is very interesting. I like your composition, the leaves in the foreground have been well placed to hide the metal railings. I would love to explore this area myself! Thanks for sharing this,

Hi Sibel.
Wonderful piece of landscape and history from your notes. Beautifully taken with great detail of the water, rocks and the cave into darkness.
May I suggest a crop out of the man-made object left which I imagine is a platform or clone some bush over the pieces showing, it just keeps catching my eye. You have done a beautiful scene here which deserves all the attention.
Wonderful image
