SKYWATCH - The Ušće Tower

The Ušće (OOOSH-chay) Tower, located on the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers.  (Ušće means 'mouth' of a river.)  Ušće Tower is the tallest skyscraper in Belgrade, capital of Serbia, and the second-tallest building overall, after the Avala tower. It was the tallest skyscraper in the Balkans until the construction of the Avala Tower. 

Got this shot when I managed to make it to Kalemegdan park early....and caught the mist.

Woah! Currents upon currents of mist/cloud from all directions! Love seeing the dark figure emerge from the fog.

Si je pouvais suggérer un léger redressement... c'est magnifique.
