|This nice looking oldtimer was taken at the shores of Danube. Exactly - Bela stena.|
Bela Stena (Serbian Cyrillic: Бела Стена) is an urban neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Palilula.
Bela Stena is an easternmost extension of the neighborhood of Višnjica and it is located 12 km from the downtown Belgrade on the right bank of the Danube, across the western tip of the Danube's island of Forkontumac. The name, bela stena, is descriptive, meaning white rock in Serbian.
Bela Stena is actually a weekend-settlement, without resident population. It has some 280 weekend-houses owned by the Belgraders and four fish restaurants. A small beach made it a popular resort in the 1970s and 1980s, when settlement grew up to the population of 20,000 over the weekends. It was especially popular as the destination for children tourism. But as much hasn't been done to improve the conditions, especially in terms of traffic accessibility, with the rapid expansion and modernization of Ada Ciganlija close to downtown Belgrade and emergence of the Lido beach near Zemun, Bela Stena became less and less popular, though it is estimated that some 7,000 people still visit over the weekends during summer season.

I like this picture because of its nice composition and light make-up effect (Your other 2 pretty pictures : Twin and Goc Mountain seem like they have lost their originality essence due to high post processes)
