End of October I went for a view days to Croatia to visit the Plitvice Lakes. It was my third visit of this lovely place. This time I wanted to do some underwater photography and especially some half-half shots of the lakes. Since swimming or diving is not allowed in the lakes I had to do all my shooting from the boardwalks.

The biggest challenge was not to get too top-heavy and fall into the lake while leaning forward for the underwater shots. But I think the effort has payed off since I got some nice split-images, which are not commonly found of this place:

Very nice. I didn't think of bringing my housing when we went there, so I went for fish shots fro the surface.

While I rarely like over/under split shots, these work quite well, and given the circumstances are really quite remarkable.  Nice job.
