Saturday again and time again to move furniture and boxes - this time it's luckily not our stuff, but time to help a friend (who helped us recently) to move. No time for rest!
Knew about the theme the whole day and had time to think and I knew exactly which pictures I'd like to use, but my main concern was their quality.. taken several years ago with a 3MP camera that was made 2003. Settings? I think ISO and image size where roughly all that could be adjusted. Anyway, the images are from a trip though Europe and this particular destination is Plitvice lakes in Croatia. Saw pictures of it on the web and decided that I'd want to go there some time and I did 4 years later.
It consists of several lakes that are interconnected and lots of waterfalls, beautiful place and the sound from the water is magical. Go there during the summer and visit the park early in the day before all the tourists gets there.
The place is a national park and there are many different paths where one can walk around.

Spent the last weekend moving and we're still busy with unpacking things, but it's nice to be able to take a break and come up with something for the photo triplet.
The theme is "three" and there is also a competition this week. We're supposed to pick a favorite among Solresors different destinations. I find that a bit strange, how can I do that when I haven't been to those places except Dubai a very long time before they started building like crazy - but was only on the ground long enough for the plane to refuel and head on.
So if I should pick something, I guess it would be Dubai and see what is has turned into.
For the triplet, I stayed with the travel idea and want to visualize it with images from three different continents:
First, pyramids at Giza, Egypt, then Chocolate Hills on Bohol in the Philippines. Finally, where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge crosses Iceland.
Update: forgot to write it when I made the post, but the three different places has another thing in common, they are all listed on UNESCOs world heritage list.
