Yes, I know I wasn't here again for a while but this time just because I was lazy. :-) I was enjoying this beautiful spring time. And this introduction is just because I will stop posting series of photos from Old mountain now and will continue some time in the future.

And now, as an gratitude for this beautiful weather I will post shots I made with my love last weekend on Kosmaj mountain and the area around it.

Hope you like it as much as I do. :-)

More about Kosmaj (WikiPedia):

Kosmaj (Serbian Cyrillic: Космај) is the mountain south of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. With 626 meters it is the highest point of the entire Belgrade City area and nicknamed one of two "Belgrade mountains" (the other one being the mountain of Avala).

The Kosmaj, is located 40 kilometers south-east of Belgrade. Entire area of the mountain belongs to the Belgrade City area, majority of it being in the municipalities of Mladenovac and Sopot, with eastern slopes being in the municipality of Grocka, and northern and north-western extensions in the municipalities of Barajevo and Voždovac.

It is specualted that the mountain was named after the Celtic word cos meaning woods, and maj pre-Indo-European word meaning mountain. It was later molded by the Romans into "Casa Maias", house of Maia, the goddess of spring.

Hi David,
Welcome back again with this great imaginary countryside photo! I like h pinkish tones on the sky and the lot of stripes made by aircrafts. :) They form an interesting pattern on the sky. The golden colour of the trees and the green grass are perfectly saturated, overall a fine image! TFS.

Hi David
Wonderful and very «David style» capture. The difuse sharpness, light and and colours are fantastic, and the whithe lines crossing the sky remind me a «war scenario», but in this case a war of light and joy. Great work and mood.
