This photo was taken in the Trebević mountains jusst outside Sarajevo. During sunrise a beam of light broke through the clouds and illuminated the valley and house below. It’s hard to believe that in less than twenty minutes driving from downtown you can find yourself in this much nature, but Sarajevo has always had a deep connection with the mountains. It shapes their weather, agriculture and during the Bosnian War it’s where snipers held the city under siege.
During the Bosnian War, Trebević was heavily mined, which prevented people from exploring it after the war. It took people a long time to return to the mountains after the war ended in 1995. Today it’s safe to hike and has lots of marked trails and walking paths. Any mined areas are clearly marked. Walking through the forest, a deep breath of air makes it obvious why Trebević forests are known as ‘the lungs of Sarajevo’.
This photo was the cover image for the Photographers Without Borders Magazine, Vol. 7.
