We had been roaming the countryside on a day-long road trip around Montenegro, and we were at our last stop before heading back to our hostel in Kotor. The weather, gorgeous since sunrise, was starting to turn, and low, gray clouds began to taunt us. Nevertheless, we parked and walked along a quiet forest road toward our destination, alone except for the fog that crept between the trees. When the road finally gave way to the shore, it became apparent that the eerie weather was really just Mother Nature showing off. The mountains peered through the mist, looking out over the icy water like royalty.
