Anybody home?

A very frosty and misty morning along the Sava river. Some of these houseboats may be inhabited throughout the year on a regular basis, but most are summer weekend homes for Belgraders. Mighty chilly now, I bet.

Love it! Looks very wet and cold but I'd still like to visit.

Oh what a lovely panorama. So serene.

Wonderful image, Bibi! And I'd be willing to bet some of those houseboats have nice cozy wood-stoves onboard ... if they're at all like ours here in Seattle.

I want a poster of this one - it's just perfect. The image with the balance of gray with a cheery line of house boats (they may be chilly to live in, but the color & the closeness of the houses makes them look so cozy) and the branches offsetting the distant trees...& complimenting the rising fog. It is just perfect.

A super photo, Bibi!
The condensation coming off the river is the capper.

It is bewitching. I imagine the Lady Of the Lake popping out here.

Superbe photo Pat! A l'intérieur la vie ne doit pas être des plus agréables en ce moment.

I think it's the mist rising off the river that really makes this photo special.
p.s. my family is still in eastern PA; I also remember lots of railroad tracks, and the commuter train to Philly.

That is a wonderful shot! I love the dark branches reaching down toward that dragons breath mist.

What an outstanding photo. The composition is great with the branches hanging down into the frame. That along with the mist and the muted colors makes a moody mystical photo.

Now that is what I consider a "houseboat". This picture looks pretty cool.

I'm new to your blog and love to learn more about different parts of the world. I live in southern California and today we had a heat wave. 88F! Flip-flops for me.
