Nebo je nad Beogradom prostrano i visoko, promenljivo a uvek lepo; i za zimskih vedrina sa njihovom studenom raskoši; i za letnjih oluja kada se celo pretvori u jedan jedini tmurni oblak koji, gonjen ludim vetrom, nosi kišu pomešanu s prašinom panonske ravnice; i u prolece kad izgleda da cvate i ono, uporedo sa zemljom; i u jesen kad oteža od jesenjih zvezda u rojevima. Uvek lepo i bogato, kao naknada ovoj cudnoj varoši za sve ono cega u njoj nema i uteha zbog svega što ne bi trebalo da bude. Ali najveca raskoš toga neba nad Beogradom, to su suncevi zalasci. U jesen i u leto oni su prostrani i jarki kao pustinjske vizije, a zimi prigušeni tmastim oblacima i rujnim maglama. A u svako doba godine vrlo su cesti dani kad se oganj toga sunca koje zalazi u ravnici, medu rekama pod Beogradom, odbije cak gore u visokoj kupoli neba, i tu se prelomi i prospe kao crven sjaj po razasutoj varoši. Tada suncano rumenilo oboji za trenutak i najzabacenije uglove Beograda i odblesne u prozorima i onih kuca koje inace slabo obasjava.

Ivo Andric

The sky above Belgrade is wide and high, unstable but always beautiful, and the serenity of the winter with their icy splendor; even during summer storms when the whole into a single gloomy cloud which, driven by the mad wind, carries the rain mixed with the dust of the Pannonian plain, and spring when it seems that it also blooms, along with the ground, and in autumn when it grows heavy with the autumn stars in swarms. Always beautiful and rich, as a compensation to this strange town for everything that is not there, and a consolation because of everything that should not be. But the greatest splendor of that sky above Belgrade, that are the sunsets. In autumn and in summer they are spacious and bright like desert, a winter smothered by murky clouds of mist and September. And at any time of year frequently come the days when the flame of that sun setting in the plain, between the rivers beneath Belgrade, gets reflected way up in the high dome of the sky, and it breaks there and pours over the scattered town. Then suncano colored blush for a moment even the remotest corners of Belgrade and reflects into the windows of those houses it otherwise poorly illuminates.

What a beautiful city! I visited Belgrade a few years ago, and I just fell in love with architecture, food and people... I will definitely go back there again, maybe even this year. I remember I rented a flat near the Danube river, I think i used search site, it was super easy to find an apartament. Anyway I cannot wait to visit Belgrade again and taste the nightlife again :D

Great light in this picture.

This is an awesome shot - I have my own photo collection of sunset clouds. I feel so very sorry for that poor person who had to use something as benign and artist as this to voice his pitiful hatred of an entire country. I'm an american, not so proud to be one at the moment, but, nonetheless, I am. Keep up your fine artistic journey. You capture your city so magnificently. Thank you, from an ugly american.

Beautiful shot.
Monica 03-Jun-2007 14:13
This is the kind of photo I could just sit and look at all day. It's beautiful. For one thing, it's the kind of city-scape we don't see here in the United States, so I appreciate it's "differentness." But the lighting is beautiful, and you captured it just right.

Dear Vlado,
It was this kind of light I tried so manny years to describe other people in a hope they might have had a wish to take a journey and experience it themselves! But,as I am a pianist I was able only to put these "Angel`s playing on the Belgrade`s sky" in the music I am playing or, better to say, feeling! Thank you very much for your eye caught this moment but most of all thank you for expressing probably the same feeling of living this moment as I live it. I am not sad beeing outside my city and this picture didn`t make me cry, this picture made me feel honoured to have been born in the place where such a beauty has the oportunity to explore herself! With best wishes for your future, Sanja (Germany)
