Photographer's Note

Well,
one another view this time. After critique that I`ve post many similair photos. ;-)

It is really difficult to drive a car along the Croatian coast because you must constantly look more left and right then forwards! ;-)
I did many time stop along the way to take a shots.

This panoramic photo is made with a UC360. I made it from 3 taken shots, increasing gamma slightly 1,10, and give more brightness +5 and contrast +3.
That`s all. No played with a colours!

See Large Version please and a MAP!
What you here see is not a lake! ;-)

Continuing text from this website:

- The Kornati National Park covers the other two series of islands, known locally as Donji Kornati, consisting of 101 islands and covering a total area of 51 sq. km.
Two-thirds of that surface (32.5 sq. km) belongs to just one island, the central island in the archipelago - Kornat, which extends 25 km in length but is at no point wider than 2.4 km. The remaining one hundred islands have the total surface area of only 18.5 sq. km. This fact alone is sufficient to demonstrate the fragmented nature and indentedness of the Kornati archipelago. It should be pointed out, however, that the National Park includes not only the land mass but also the sea. In fact, more than three-fourths of the National Park area is accounted for by the sea (the total area of the National Park is 224 sq. km). The Kornati is thus also a marine national park and Croatia is one of the countries which have adopted and implemented international recommendations (Second World Conference on National Parks, 1972) regarding the protection of valuable coastal and marine environments. The first decision to protect the Kornati archipelago was made by the Croatian Government in 1967. The decision covered all four series of islands, but the protection included only the landscape (islands) and not the sea. Subsequent explorations of the sea and the seabed confirmed the natural importance and value of the marine zone and it became clear that the region met the criteria for the establishment of a national park. Therefore, a law was passed to that effect in 1980.
The National Park included the Donji Kornati series of islands and the southeastern part of the neighboring Dugi otok (Telascica bay), with the adjoining sea (towards the open sea, the boundary of the National Park is one nautical mile from the shoreline). The formal and legislative complications continued even after the adoption of the law (mostly because of different views concerning tourist construction in Telascica), and the boundaries of the National Park were revised in 1988, reducing its total area by one fourth.

The present boundary towards Dugi Otok follows the administrative boundary between the municipalities of Sibenik and Zadar.
