Lens-Artists Challenge #100 – The Long and Winding Road

This week, Tina invites us to share images and thoughts about the long and winding Road.

One of the side trips of our Croatia tour (September, 2019) was to Mostar, Bostia. The road was long and winding, it took 3 hours to get there. To avoid the morning traffic, we were asked to be on the bus before 6:30 am.

The last glimpse of the Plitvice Lakes National Park through our bus window.

On the way to Mostar, we enjoyed the endless picturesque views.

Driving back to Croatia was another 3 hours. We saw many beautiful villages in Croatia.

This 6-hour round trip was long, but I enjoyed the beautiful scenery every minute of it. On the bus, I noticed most people were taking a nap. Travel can be tiring, say the least.

It’d be nice, I thought, if our bus driver would stop somewhere to let us off the bus and enjoy the scenery for a little while. Looking down from the bus window, I knew it was a wishful thinking.

Our bus driver ensured us that he had six sensors to guide him. He said that in some areas he turned on all six sensors simultaneously.

At the end of the day, we all agreed, including the ones who took a long nap, this 6-hour bus drive was one of the most beautiful scenery we’d seen. 🙂

I would like to take the opportunity to thank our blog friends for joining in last week’s “Old and New”. You have broadened the horizon of this theme. Your photos and stories are not only beautiful but also inspiring and creative. Last but not the least, thank you for giving me the pleasure of hosting this theme.

Tina leads this week’s Long and Winding Road theme.  Her photos are beautiful, words powerful and insightful.  Click here to visit. If you join us, be sure to link your post to Tina’s original post and to include the Lens-Artists Tag.

Finally, we are excited to announce that next week the Lens-Artists team will be bringing you a very special event. Cee of Ceenphotography has graciously agreed to lead us on our next challenge. All four members of the Lens-Artists team will join Cee next Saturday at noon EST in response to her challenge subject. We look forward to seeing where she leads us, and hope you’ll join the fun.

  1. Beautiful scenery Amy. The Rip van Winkels in the bus reminded me of my of grandmother who used to claim that see didn’t sleep a wink the previous night and in the meantime the paint threatened to remove itself from the walls due to her snoring

    • Thank you, Abrie! I thought it was kinda challenging to take photos in a small seating area.
      😄… due to her snoring, that is so funny! 😅😊


    • Thank you, MIriam for your thoughtful comment. It was one of rarely trips that we spent 2/3 time or more on a bus, but enjoyed so much. It’s hard to believe that we are on #100. 🙂

  2. You can certainly link this post to Sunday Stills, Amy! I hope they pay that bus driver well! What a spectacular view! I love road trips and I cannot sleep, so I end up seeing everything (FOMO)! How cool Cee will host LAPC next week! I’ll be on the lookout for the posts and try to link up (although my theme is “home.”). Glad no one got car sick on that windy road!

  3. Amazingly beautiful, Amy! I don’t know how you managed so many lovely shots from the bus? Well done! I had the same feeling when we went by bus there – I wanted to stop for photographing. Only once did our guide allow a stop for a beautiful scenery. We were pressed for time all the way. Mostly we drive our own car when we travel, but this time it was a bus – next time (if there is one) I don’t think so.

    • Thank you, AC! It was challenging to take photos in a little seating place. So, 2/3 had to be deleted. 😦 I had to click non -stop hoping to get a few good shots. They do press time, besides no sightseeing spot to park.

    • Thank you, Hien. I’m not sure I’ll go back there anytime soon. The problem is that road was very narrow no sightseeing spot for car and bus.


Thank you for visiting! Love to hear from you...
