The adventures of Vlatko continue...
"I find the point of calmness between the nature and my mind. The photography is a result of my emotions. I create my imagination through nature's elements and atmosphere. Every journey is a special story with unexpected surprises. The nature is a guide of my visions, an exceptional creator of life. In nature nothing is perfect and yet, everything is perfect. Landscapes can never be the same, but they will always be beautiful. The photography is a reflection of my character, vision and my emotions, or simply, a reflection of my own being."
