Photographer: Xavier Ciceron from Lausanne, Switzerland. Shot with a NikonD200, in October 2007.
Getting the Shot: It was late afternoon, the end of a beautiful autumn day during my first visit to Bosnia. My girlfriend took me to Boracko Lake, a popular place in summer near Konjic, the small town where she used to live.
The Details: The place was very quiet and I tried to take advantage of the surface of the lake reflecting the forest colors and capture the serene atmosphere. It was a striking contrast with scars of the war still visible in the villages nearby. Even the country houses on the shore of the lake have not been spared. Yet the atmosphere was peaceful, the landscape beautiful. It was as if Mother Nature was showing the way for healing the old wounds.
