This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

A house in the middle of the Drina River near the town of Bajina Basta, Serbia

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The long exposure and autumn colors make for a beautiful scene, but, of course, it’s the house that captures my imagination. I want to know more about this dwelling with the little red kayak: Does someone live there, ferrying provisions from the shore? —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor

I just returned from Serbia and have visited this amazing place, together with some others, incl. Tara mountains.

This is almost an irreal image. I took various photos of this tiny house and couldn't leave that place without looking again and again to it. It's stunning!
