Jon Pertwee is a part time photographer and a full time photo addict. When he's not at work taking photos, he's either processing them or looking at other peoples images for inspiration. Jon started his photography journey in 2011 and has since travelled the world, camera in hand. His favorite thing to photograph is.. Anything.. He enjoys shooting the female form in studios as much as photographing sunsets and vistas, or wandering the streets of an unknown city taking in the life and vibe of the environment. Favorite quotes: Henri Cartier-Bresson Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

My recent trip to Croatia was no different.. In 11 days I wanted to photograph as much of it as I could, so set out with a car and covered 1200km and took 1600 photos!

Looking for the falls in the Krka national park, I took a wrong turn and ended up at a monestary.. Not being a big one for secluded prayer I was about to turn round and back track, when I spotted a small forgotten trail leading off round a large mashy lake. I decided to follow the trail, maybe I could find an opening near the water that would allow me to get a photo.

Well after about an hour of walking, in the blazing sun, all there was was dense forest on either side.. too thick to get through.. I eventually came to a clearer bit and was about to push ...
