Beautiful Kotor Bay

The Bay of Boka (also known as the Bay of Kotor) stretches and zigzags

Around the Adriatic coast in Montenegro.

(Photos taken from a moving bus.)

The water is crystalline blue

And dazzling aquamarine.

Did you know that this is the

Southernmost fjord in Europe? (I didn’t.)

The bay around Perast has some delightful islands —

Perfect for a wedding shoot!

And can you imagine playing water polo

Surrounded by majestic mountains?

You guess right – I fell in love with Montenegro!

    This nature pictures are lovely. Here in the US, the closest to this place is breathtaking Grand Tetons in Wyoming. There are mountain ranges, water, streams, meadow, snow capped mountains and fauna- American bald eagle.
