Photographer's Note

Plomin Bay (Plominski zaljev) is a narrow 3.2 km (2 mile) long inlet on the eastern side of the Croatian part of Istria in the northern Adriatic. The small town of Plomin, known in Roman times as Flanona, is situated 168 m (550 ft) above the bay and today almost forlorn.

Plomin Luka at the end of the bay is not really a harbor; itís more like a quay for the fisher boats and doesnít offer much service for guest boats. The place is dominated by the coal-fired TE Power Plant and its 340 m (1,120 ft) high chimney.

Closer to the sea is a mooring pier where the large ships carrying coal unload their cargo, which then via a belt conveyor is transported to the power plant. But Iím only showing a speedboat, with a boat bunny at the prow, lazily moving outside a buoy marking the mooring area.

Thatís how easy it is to deceive with the camera.
