Judging from the color of the water, it looks like this river has its source in mountain glaciers. Is that true?
No, it doesn't, it has a limestones which contains mainly calcium, that's why the water is green. And glaciers formed the lakes on the mountain Durmitor, such as: Crno jezero, Skrcka lakes, Barno... Other name for these lakes is mountain eyes.
Are you sure it depends from calcium? As far as I know calcium iones aren't chromophores (colour carriers)...
No, they are not chromophores. But the color of the water depends of the structure of the stone and rocks in the water. And I know that the rocks in this area are consist of limestones.
The same thing is with many rivers in Bosnia, they have an emerald green color of the water.
The mixture of the flora, rocks, daylight and water gives this kind of the color.
"Crystal clear waters of Tara, which have light blue and green color, made its canyon in rough limestone mountains even before the Ice Age. Water has carbon dioxide in it which turns calcium carbonate into calcium bicarbonate that dissolves in water." 9taken from http://www.summitpost.org/canyon/172727/tara-canyon.html)

In fact, very nice!!
Did you adjust the colors on this shot?
Only upper part of the sky was adjusted, all rest no.
Very nice! It's one of the more interesting pictures I've seen posted.
I need to take more calcium to make my bones strong!
You don't look that weak to me... You look strong indeed...
I love the contrast of black/white and color. Unique viewpoint too!
Always tried to imagine what this green Tara colour looks like in winter... and it's just the same :)
Odlicna slika, svaka cast!
Tara is really unique, I glad you like the photo, thank you
Very unique and interesting! As Jack said, the b&w contrasting with the green is really a really cool "effect".
Dobrodosla Venero u Summitpost druzinu! Drago mi je da se broj clanova iz SCG povecava. Zelim ti jos puno lepih avantura i slika!
Hvala Vlado, videla sam tvoje fotografije i na trekearthu, ali mi se cini da si ovde stavljao bolje.
Vise sam posvecen Summitpostu od TrekEartha jer ovde imam vecu kreativnu slobodu, a nemam ni limite u pogledu dnevnog stavljanja slika. Pretpostavio sam da si ti ta Venus sa TE-a, hehe... Pamtim te po brojnim TE morskim motivima. Nisam znao da i planinaris. Stavio sam tvoju sliku Tare na naslovnu stranu Tara Canyon stranice.
Great shot Venus! Emerald Tara in this grayscale world looks unreal, very cool situation!
