The photo was taken in my hometown of Travnik, a small historical town in the picturesque heart of Bosnia. It offers a variety of activities to tourists. They can start by visiting the museum of the Bosnian Nobel-prize winner Ivo Andrić [who was an acclaimed literalist] and later they can take a break on the spring of ''Plava Voda'' [also known as blue water] where the photo was taken. The place is constantly visited by tourists where they enjoy local cuisine and drink the famous ''Lutvina kahva'' (a brand of coffee). ''Plava Voda'' is a place where photographers enjoy their passion and take such beautiful photos in this brilliant atmosphere on Bosnia.
