Rainfall at Sea - Croatia

Rainfall at Sea – Croatia

Well friends, it happened…all my equipment (camera, two lenses, and everything else from cable to additional battery) was stolen during my last travel which led me to Spain (private) and Paris (professional). As always, there is no reason to be overly depressed because of something one can do absolutely nothing about. Instead, I just re-ranked this picture in my “to-publish”-hierarchy. However, it did cause the delay in posting and there is nothing to recover the pictures I have taken.

Some background on this one: during last year’s one-day roadtrip on the croatian island Korcula, I took this shot of a highly localized (in fact a strangely localized) shower somewhere close to Pupnatska Luka, a very nice little pebble beach with crystal clear waters. I do like how the rain blurs the panaroma, almost like fog. Which reminds me of something terrible coming up…autumn (not that bad in fact) and winter (grrrrmpf). How I will miss you summer of 2015, you wonderful and challenging collection of +30 degrees (celsius) days…your two uglier cousins are approaching quickly…go away!

It also means that I need to wait for another couple of months to put my newly acquired skills as a deep and enriched air diver to practice (no, I am not diving in some foggy lake during autumn/winter!). In fact, many of the dives this time were accompanied by wind and/or rain showers like the one above. Also ascending from 38 metres (yey!) through hundreds of jellyfish (yikes!),  schools of barracudas…aaaaaaand…dolphins. Finally! As I told you here, I already wrote them off as propaganda, but they were real this time. It totally paid off, and I would like to thank everybody at Punta Dive for their patience and flexibility, in particular Davy for making “the plan”. Many thanks to Wouter, Oopi and Richard for instructing me and everybody on shore, in particular Tilly, for being of great assistance and company. All the best to you guys…hope to see you all soon…Tata.

    • Are you kidding me! Now six months of darkness, cold and rain-snow-ice-whatever. Why oh why did my ancestors settle here in the first place and why-o-why are jobs so concentrated in countries without sea-summer-sun??? I should do it like bears – hibernate :-). Cheers!

    • I’m with you on fog but snow?…never: coming from Austria I had too much of that for a lifetime ;-). Well…i’d be more devastated had I simply lost my kit instead of it being stolen. Then it would be all my fault. It’s just material in the end, nothing compared to memories or great company while travelling :-). Thanks for liking the photograph!!
