Deliblato is a village in Serbia, situated in the Kovin municipality in the Vojvodina province. The Deliblatska Peščara (Deliblato Sands), the largest sandy area in Europe, was named after this village.
The Deliblato sands are the largest sandy terrain in Europe, once part of a vast prehistoric desert. It is home to many rare, endangered or endemic species of plants and animals in Europe and the world. Due to its forest and surroundings, it was proclaimed to be a Special Nature Reserve, on national level, it represents a natural asset of special importance falling under protection category I.
It originated from the withdrawal of the Pannonian Sea.
The name of the village is derived from the Turkish word deli ("big") and Serbian word "blato" ("mud"), thus the full meaning in English would be "the big mud".

You've captured this lovely rural church with excellent detail and natural colours. I like the open gate which seems to welcome the viewer into your photograph. The church is nicely placed within the composition, and the path aslo leads us right up to the side door and creates a nice sense of perspective. The image is clear and sharp and you did really well with the light, which seems to have been a little difficult. Very good work.

This is a fine shot of the country church with its tall tower clearly outlined against the grey sky. the open gate frames the shot well and the cobbled pathway through the beautiful lawn provides nice dof.
thanks for sharing.

bella idea per la composizione, il cancello in questa posizione č molto originale.
Peccato che il cielo non sia stato dei migliori.

I really like this composition, specially the way you included part of the gate in foreground. Looks as if the gate is opening to let us in. I like the light also!
