Wir befinden uns im Innenhof des Benediktinerklosters,
auf das Inselchen Koljun; man ausschließlich per Boot, die lokalen Bootsfahrer aus Punat sind immer zu Diensten. Es gibt keinen Schifffahrtplan, sondern es wird nach Bedarf gefahren.
Einst stand auf der Insel eine römische Villa. Im XI. Jh. errichteten die Benediktiner hier ein Kloster. Auf Betreiben der Frankopanenfürsten entstand auf den Ruinen des Benediktinerklosters durch die Ansiedlung von Franziskanermönchen im XV. Jh. ein Franziskanerkloster. Der Franziskanergruß lautet Friede und Heil.

We are located in the courtyard of the Benedictine monastery,
on the islet of Koljun; one, the local boaters from Punat are always at your service exclusively by boat. There is no shipping plan, but it is driven by demand.
Once stood on the island of a Roman villa. In XI. Century built the Benedictine monastery here. At the instigation of Frankopanenfürsten was built on the ruins of the Benedictine monastery by the settlement of Franciscan monks in the XV. Century a Franciscan monastery. The Franciscan greeting is peace and salvation.

Guten Tag Wolfgang,
Great to see you've returned, hope you had a great time! Courtyards are always a bounty of photo opportunities, full of colors and wonderful architecture in a setting like this. On the other side however, it can pose quite a difficulty with lighting. You seemed to have found a nice balance, which shows us good detail in the shadows. More importantly though, this portrays very well the calm beauty that exists here. Enjoy the new day. Take good care.

A magnificent cloisters, that remind me very much of the ones I saw in the Veneto region in Italy, not far from the Croatian border. The play of light and shade is exquisite and you have created an excellent symmetry and perspective. Well done, too, the handling of the strong outside light.

Good evening Wolfgang,
Nicely manaed light differentials through the archs, and with an outstanding sharp details.
Red and green added much vivid colors to the mostly grey stones.

Sorry for being so late to answer to your kind words.
The monastery inner yard is magnificent, so decorated of those beautiful flower boxes and of course, the surrounding arched gallery completes the interesting architectural attraction.
Many compliments for the excellent tonal depiction inside and out of the covered passage in which is reverberated the echoes of monks footsteps and the clinking of rosaries!
I'll be off-line until mid-August.

Nice repetition of the arches with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Nice shadow play at right. The flowers add a welcome splash of colour. Good textural details on the columns. Excellent shadow detail. The rectangular door top right breaks the pattern well. Tfs!

this is an elegant and peaceful place, your presentation of it is thorough, clear and pleasant. I like very much the solid perspective, the rhythmical repetitions and the well defined details. The colours and the atmosphere are delightful, you did great work balancing the strong sunshine and the deep shade. A presentation that's interesting and inviting, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Sehr gut Standpunkt, wir können viel sehen. Das Licht ist sehr gut geführt. Sonnige Bereiche sind nicht ausgewaschen. Ich mag die wiederholenden Formen.
