Some pictures from a holiday on the Croatian island of Vis in the village of Komiza. I had a new Canon Eos 400 with a Sigma 30 mm 1.4 and a Canon 60 mm 2.8 macro which it was fun putting through the paces. Both lenses were brilliant although I would have needed a tripod to do the macro lens justice. As a backup I had a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ5. The amazingly effective image stabalization stood me in good stead in the Blue Cave (handheld 1/2 second exposure!) which is a submerged cave with an underwater opening at the far end that lets the sunlight in through the sea water which gives it it's characteristic blue glow. Just so you know what you're looking att in the last picture, it's a junkheap at the back of the main church i Komiza which is very old and pictureque with a very neat churchyard. But a stones throw away there is an awesome pit where they just tip the old flowers,wreaths, coffins and God knows what. Out of sight, out of mind :)
A review of Komiza I put on:
