Location: Lukomir (1493 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto

Hidden in the middle of the Bjelasnica there is a fairy village that has not been touched by the war, and is visited both by tourists and by people from Sarajevo, typically on a Sunday trip, like I could check personally, having reached it on a Sunday.
Among the several dozens of visitors from the town there were also three girls, who some years ago helped a Dutch team to produce the short movie "Winterslaap in Lukomir", about the tough winter life in the village. For likewise tough people interested in a movie in Bosnian with Dutch subtitles, the right place is
It was very amusing to look the three girls speak like old friends with elderly people of the village. One woman also even taking a photography lesson from one of the three... On one sees her reactions after looking on the display her photographic achievements. I chose this image for the cover for a Balkan slideshow that I will do tomorrow, whence the idea to place a Lukomir panorama also here.
This photo, more than showing the village, shows its position high on the Rakitnica canyon, with the Visocica on the opposite side. It is taken from a little hill that seems to placed there right to please panorama photographers. When the famous queue will allow (es hat eine Schlange sich gebildet...) maybe I will publish something else from Lukomir.
14 vertical images, 22 mm (x 1.5), 1/200 sec, f/11.


Herrlich wie das Dörflein Lukomir zwischen den kargen Hügeln liegt! Bravo Alberto - tanti saluti Hans-Jörg

What a stark contrast to the other picture. The architecture of the houses is telltaling of harsh winters.
