Photographer's Note

Plitvice Lakes are composed of 16 interlinked lakes between the mountains of Mala Kapela and Pljeivica in the region of Lika. The whole area is on certain maps called the Devil's Garden, due to its landscape and history. According to the legend the Plitvice lakes were created after a long period of drought. People, animals and nature were longing for water, even the Black River went dry. People prayed and prayed. Then appeared in the valley the Black Queen with her magnificent suite; a strong wind begun to blow and with a thunder rain fell down on earth. The rain was falling until the water had grown enough to create the Lakes.
