Dark clouds above the canyon of Sutjeska.
In the canyon took place epic "Battle of the Sutjeska" (or Case Black, German Fall Schwarz), a joint attack by the Axis taking place from 15 May to 16 June 1943, which aimed to destroy the main Partisan force. The Axis rallied 127,000 land troops for the offensive, including German, Italian, NDH (Independent State of Croatia), Bulgarian, Greek forces under Georgios Poulos (officially SS) and Cossack units, and over 300 airplanes. The Yugoslav National Liberation Army had 22,148 soldiers in 16 brigades.
The battle marked a turning point toward Partisan control of Yugoslavia, and became an integral part of the Yugoslav post-war mythology, celebrating the self-sacrifice, extreme suffering and moral firmness of the partisans.

Very nice contrast bitween blue sky and landscape. The colors you captured are really eye catcher.
Very well done.

I like the 2 part division of the frame between bright light and darkness. Nice autumn colors on the vegetation. Excellent landscape photo. Thanks for sharing.
