Falls in Autumn

Photograph by Vedrana Tafra, National Geographic Your Shot

Dispersing fog and a moment of sunshine bring the falls and foliage of Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes National Park into view on an early autumn morning. The country’s oldest and largest national park, Plitvice boasts more than plunging waterfalls: Its 16 terraced lakes, formed by natural travertine dams, change color throughout the day, and its abundant wildlife includes 261 species of birds.

Vedrana Tafra’s image was recently featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

This is such a spectacular place. I was fortunate to visit on an early spring day when there were almost no visitors. Well done.

After 74 years of looking and not seeing I finally get it. I wish I had paid closer attention to all the beauty around me up to this point.

I have visited Plitvice many times, but never in the autumn. This stunning photo made me plan next September/October trip to Plitvice. Thank you.
