SKYWATCH FRIDAY--twilight over New Belgrade

Aside from its overall beauty, Kalemegdan Park offers a splendid view of the rivers and the plain on which New Belgrade lies. In the summer, retired people, lovers, and families vie for a bench to watch the sun go down. Or some just sit and eat ice cream and ignore the view...!

I got a bench and watched the people, too.

Check out other skies at SKYWATCH.

Lovely view. So much beauty.
I'm back and very jet lagged. How about meeting in Rovinj next summer? Or maybe Novi Sad?

That's a lucky shot, the water and the sky the same reflecting motion. It also looks like everyone was having a lovely evening.

Sounds and looks like you got the best of all possible results from your visit to the park. Nice!

What a lovely spot—but everyone looks so serious! I love the way they're all ignoring the woman with the camera.

Gaelyn said...

A great view indeed and with a slice of sunset heaven. Some people just can't see.

A great moment capturing human Nature interacting with the beauty around them and those being self-absorbed! A fascinating scene!

Love that great streak of light and its reflection. Nice place to sit and watch the sun set on a summer evening.

the view is stunning. And what a sky?

I find it funny that a couple people are sitting with their backs to it.
