The story behind this image

Towards the end of our week's holiday in Croatia we met up with our daughter Allie for the day, and decided to take one of the many boat excursions around the islands just off the Adriatic coast.

I'm certainly glad we did, otherwise we would never have got to see some lovely places, such as Maslinica on the small island of Solta, pictured here.

An absolutely charming seaside village, with some lovely photogenic views to enjoy.

But it wasn't just the views of colourful boats and red roofed buildings that caught my attention, as the sea was so clear and such a lovely colour that I wanted to create an image that highlighted the water.

And this arrangement of seaweed encrusted ropes gave me just what I needed, providing some structure and colour contrast to set against the turquoise wavelets.
