SKYWATCH --shades of deja vu


I must admit: I cheated. This is a photo I posted on my third day of blogging back in March 2008. It didn't attract any comments, but I like this photo and so I'm reposting it. Plus, the scene has not changed at all anyway...same beautiful sunsets and little boats. Here's what I wrote back then:

"Here's another one of Belgrade's 17 municipalities, situated along the right bank of the Danube on marshy land, with its main settlements built further from the river. Zemun (ZAY-moon) itself was built right on the bank, 100 meters above sea level. It's wonderful to walk in just about any season along the river (sidewalks being upgraded into an even lovelier riverside walk). You can enjoy the view, have coffee, a drink, lunch or dinner at one of numerous cafes and restaurants (outdoor terraces are open as much as possible!) There are several great fish restaurants in particular."

How didn't you get any comments back in March 2008?! Was the blogging world asleep? Marvelous photo with wonderful colors and silhouettes!
You didn't get "skunked" this time!

Very warm tones. So tranquil and idyllic, can almost hear the gentle lapping waves lulling me to sleep...

Everyone must have been asleep! I love this shot.

I'm just bummed I didn't remember it since I did go thru every one of your back posts.
Besides the color and setting, I love the fishermen in the little boat.

That's funny. I could repost a LOT since very few people saw them when I first started blogging. This is just gorgeous. Love the little silhouetted boats!
