Countryside and/or Small Towns in Bosnia

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge is “countryside and/or small towns”.  In just two days, we have enjoyed many beautiful photos of the countryside and small towns from our followers, and these photos tell wonderful stories of the places they grew up, have visited, or lived.

On a hot day (90 F degrees), we took a day trip to Bosnia from the Croatia border. On the bus, we saw this side of Bosnia.

The farmland:

Small town:

The scars of the Bosnia war:

Many of these houses damaged by the war may never be recovered:

Three hours later, as we were approaching our destination, we saw a beautiful river running through:

These photos were taken with iPhone 8 on the bus.

  1. Those scars of war are going to last a long time, but nature may take its due course, hiding and burying those scars in the embrace of foliage. One of my former colleagues and their family escaped Bosnia for the U.S. at the outbreak of the civil war; she spoke fondly of the town of Mostar before I saw the images of the town’s famous bridge which I’d like to see at some point.

    • Yes, the scars can last for a long time… we visited Mostar, but I didn’t take a good photo due to the huge crowds. Other then the crowds, there are many, many shops on both sides of the bridge.

  2. The photos were fascinating to me, Amy. I’m currently reading a book written by an aid worker in Bosnia and I have been very interested in that part of the world. There was so much devastation in that country and I think the visual reminders will always be there. The farm and open land is quite beautiful. Strange contrasts! Your photos captured the feeling quite well.
