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

@Jesse McKinneyYes, it is real, and the place is correct. Although, to much photoshop on this picture for no reason, the place is beautifull without touching it up. Just google : kuca na Drini, and u will find more photos. Whole that area near river Drina and Tara mountain is stunning, I have a small wooden house similar to this one, just on the mountain.
