Photographer's Note

Something different today, very simple, so I will upload 2 other photos to workshop. This is the view from the top of Osoršcica (557m.) looking south over the spine of thin and long Lošinj Island. Mid-morning light, I started the walk up from the seaside village of Nerezine as early as I could, but it takes a few hours to walk up here. I posted this because I thought the identical shape of the rounded headlands had an interesting repetition. This was takenm with about 170mm. focal length. I will add alternative views from this peak to WS. This mountain is the highest peak in the Cres and Lošinj islands, and is way out in the Adriatic, so the views reach far and wide.

From Wikipedia:
Lošinj is part of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago. The Cres-Lošinj archipelago includes Cres and Lošinj, and the smaller islands of Unije, Ilovik, Susak, Vele Srakane, Male Srakane and a number of unhabited small islands. Cres is the biggest by area, Lošinj is second. Cres and Lošinj are connected by a small bridge in the town of Osor (Italian Ossero), on the island of Cres.

Lošinj is the 11th largest Adriatic island by area, 33 km long, with the width varying from 4.75 km in the north and middle of the island, to 0.25 km near the town of Mali Lošinj. The total coastline of the island is 112.7 km.

With over 2600 hours of sunshine a year, the island has become a popular destination for German and Italian tourists in the summer months. Average air humidity is 70%, and the average summer temperature is 24 °C (75 °F) and 7 °C (45 °F) during the winter.

The highest elevations are the mountains Televrin (also called Osoršćica) (588 m) and Sv. Nikola (557 m). The towns of Nerezine and Sveti Jakov lie at their base. The island is formed predominantly of chalk limestone and dolomite rocks. There are sand deposits in the western part of the Kurila peninsula.

UPDATE: I added a 3rd photo to WS, the zoomed out version of the original, unfortunately south facing views are a bit sunburnt.
