Mostar Bridge

Every Wednesday the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper chooses a reader submitted photograph to publish in its travel section.  On pure whim, I submitted a photograph from my recent family trip to Croatia.  Much to my surprise, my photo was chosen for publication.

    Great photograph. The composition is fantastic.
