Milinko Ilic - gas been capturing almost every event on Macva with Tesla camera, but the most beautiful and most interesting photos he got in nature. He loves Drina river very much, on whose coast he lives, in the village Crna Bara, so he doesn't have to travel far for a good photo. On a motorcycle or a bike, with his camera, he is near the river in minutes, near the boat that awaits him.
And then the adventure starts which when he shares with his followers from the full memory card on the Facebook page and the portal macva.info.
His photos from the river are not ordinary because they are more than everyday exhibits. If you can say that a photo is captured at the moment than you can really say that for his photos. Because the moment may be missed, because the model could be carried away by the quick river to Sava river, perhaps even to the Danube or the Black sea!
It is a large collection of records of old stomps, logs, and the entire trees of unusual shape floating on the river whose beauty can be missed by the "ordinary eye". And when Milinko photographs them the way river "indented" them, it turns out that they can be one of a kid unreal works of art!
Is it a robot in the photo, a giant bird, a shell, a centipede, an elephant, a snail... everybody sees different things in these sculptures, but no one is left indifferent.
There is always a long walk or a drive behind every photo, observation, and waiting for the right moment to take the shot.
- I am going, searching for everything that Drina brings, sometimes I am waiting for the water to clear out, for the sun to go over so I could have enough light. There was a time when I washed the log and it wasn't the moment to take the photo. When I return the following day, my art exhibit is gone. The water carried it away, and I washed it up and prepared it for the shooting - Milinko reveals.
It is hard to determine the age of the unusual models. Milinko presumes that they have survived for several centuries according to the color. That is not especially important for the camera, what is important is the way they "settled" to pose, since they look like an artistic work and they fire up the imagination of the viewers. If nature didn't position them like it did, no one would notice the waste flowing down the river.
- There weren't strong torrents this year and there aren't any special models to be found - Milinko complains, not liking the fact that he has to chose the most beautiful and unusual photos from his phone on our request to share them with Telegraf readers. He adds that it is easier for him to sit by the river the entire day, searching for "models".
Besides the unusual, Milinko said that he took his most beautiful photos on the river. The Drina is beautiful in its own way in every time of the year and it is challenging for photographing during every period of the day - in the morning when it is waking up, in the evening when the sun is setting, and during the day when there it comes alive because of all the swimmers and fishermen.
He is always there in order not to miss some interesting shot, to take a picture with his camera and to share his photo with the nature lovers so they can also enjoy the magic and the beauties of Drina.
