This photo was taken on the Danube River 10-31-07 between Turnu Severin, Romania and Belgrade, Serbia. It’s the largest natural gorge (canyon) on the Danube. Before “The Iron Gates” were built it was a gigantic obstacle on both sides to navigate its pointed rocks and cliffs, surrounded with very wild yet attractive nature. This sculpture caught my attention as a beautiful work of art. I am very impressed with the carving, and hope you will enjoy it.

    I am also impressed with this carving, Bonnie.
    And also, your fine image of this, the predominant tri colours of orange, grey and dull green present a fine scene..
    These give a limited palette, which always has a good visual impact. Most of my paintings have that

    Hi Colin,

    What a great and interesting sculpture. And your photograph is so perfect with the coloured trees to give softness to the otherwise harsh environment. Well done.

    Hi Dorothy,
    I truly appreciate your comments. When I went to mainland China a virus got on my portable hard-drive & all pics vanished, minus the 1 I uploaded to this site.
    Can you imagine a person doing this giant sculpture in the granite on the hugh cliff/mountain??
    Take care, Bonnie

    Yes it is an impressive sculpture! Thanks for tips and compliment; I’ll revisit most of my shots when I get around to buying some decent software :)
