Orogeny refers to forces and events leading to a severe structural deformation of the Earth's crust due to the engagement of tectonic plates. Response to such engagement results in the formation of long tracts of highly deformed rock called orogens or orogenic belts. The word "orogeny" comes from the Greek (oros for "mountain" plus genesis for "creation" or "origin"), and it is the primary mechanism by which mountains are built on continents. Orogens develop while a continental plate is crumpled and thickened to form mountain ranges, and involve a great range of geological processes collectively called orogenesis. (from Wikipedia)
Same location...again :)
Retezat National Park - Southern Carpathian Mountains
..but this time this is a higher shot: taken from the Bucura I peak (2439m), this is overlooking a very treacherous ridge on the left - unmarked and not allowed to hike on - and one of the many glacial lakes in the area - Stirbu Lake.
