    Gold in Nature/Seasons

I live near the beautiful Maksimir park, where I often go for a walk in the woods with my dog. We wander among the trees, listening to the birds and the wind. This forest is my second home. There I find my peace and balance. I started this series during the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in early spring. My aim is to capture personal, evocative, atmospheric impressions. Not obvious reality, but my subjective point of view, where color and light play leading roles.
