|This is one of the branches of Moraca river. This magical view is mostly the atmosphere that this river gives.|
Morača (Serbian Cyrillic: Морача) is a river in Montenegro. It originates in northern Montenegro, under Rzača mountain. It generally flows southwards for some 113 km (70 mi), before emptying into Lake Scutari.
In its northern part, the Morača is a fast mountain river, and has cut a canyon north of Podgorica. After merging with its largest tributary, Zeta, just north of Podgorica, the Morača enters the Zeta plain. It flows through this flat area of Montenegro until it empties into Lake Scutari.
The Morača is a relatively small river, rarely more than 100 m (328 ft) wide and mostly shallow, so it is generally not navigable. Its canyon is currently a corridor for the main road leading from Montenegro's coast and Podgorica to northern Montenegro and Serbia. This road is considered very dangerous, and will likely be bypassed in future by a motorway which is currently being planned.
The Morača River is considered one of the symbols of Podgorica, and is the biggest river that flows through the city. It is featured on some flags and country symbols.

A very pleasing scene with the river nicely offset by the white rocks at the top and bottom. Yuo could maybe go to F8 or f11 for a scenic shot to get more depth of field.
Good spot with it's natural beauty!
the water is extremely clear and clean!
captured well with good exposure and focus
