And the temperature is....

...minus three Celsius! That's what it really was this morning when I got up. I took this photo last Sunday from Branko's Bridge that I've featured several times. The Sava and Danube Rivers are currently very high, due to melting snow, and in this photo you can see what is actually a modern-shaped cement bench on the quay, part of which is submerged. The improvised walkway behind it leads to one of Belgrade's floating restaurants. Where you now see water you would normally find a grassy area that extends to the sidewalk next to the river.

This is fantastic. What a great eye you have! I don't think you want to try to sit on that bench!

Well that's just genius Bibi. I'm dumbfounded!

Well, let me just add my kudos too. Brilliant! I hope you'll take a shot of this area when the waters recede.

this looks so modern.
I'm glad it's getting warmer there.

Wonderfully seen, Bibi! Minus Three! Well, Seattle is having a few days of cold now, too. It was 33º when I looked a few minutes ago.

That is amazingly clever and fun. Any worries about the water level...I remember some of the benches your posted previously in summer days.

When looking at this photography I forget about the temperature to admire the composition and the subject of course...

Rebecca said...

Great eye! That's a lot of water.

Looks like you may have a lot more 'floating ' restaurants, soon.

Great shot, Bibi! Did you hear my shout of laughter all the way in Belgrade?

snapperoni said...

Amazing! I notice "-3" right away, and was thinking, equals what?

And realized it was the temperature. What a cool reflection. and a good eye to have noticed this too!

Again, the (yours) eyes have it! noticing the configuration. Great photo.
Hmm. If it's like that now, is there going to be great flooding in April?
