Hvar is the longest Croatian island, the sunniest and most fragrant on the Adriatic. Island is also famous for its mild climate and unique sunlight (the sun shines 2,722 hours a year!).
Clumps of lavender grow on the roads, the locals sell dried bouquets, bags stuffed with fragrant drought, lavender soaps and oils (need ten large baskets of flowers to obtain a liter of oil). Another fragrant symbol of the island is rosemary - at the end of the nineteenth century oil produced here, which hit a perfumery in Europe. With rosemary also done so. royal water, supposedly indispensable remedy for sore throat.
Hvar is 68 km long and nearly four times as much of the coastline. There are plenty of secluded coves with pebble beaches and the water coming down the rock shelves with hot from the sun. The sea is a few shades of blue, from bright ultramarine, the sapphire, turquoise, and dark blue. It should bring at least a basic set of diving because the water is so clear that the starfish, crabs, schools of fish and underwater meadows are clearly visible.
Among the fields of lavender and rosemary, in the silence disturbed only concert of cicadas and the busy bees we go to the town of Hvar on the western end of the island. This is a photo taken in the morning from the tent that we set here. Lavender, sprinkled the night, smelled simply amazing.

an excellently composed impression of this famous island, this new POV on this already well known lavender field works very well. The moody colors make the image very attractive. My compliments!
