Clouds are born high in Bucegi Mountains. I took this picture during our Romanian trip, from highest station of funicular railway from Busteni. It was great day. Firstly we traveled via this railway up to 2200 meters high, then we climbed one of highest Romanian peaks. At over 2000 meters level there was a lot of snow everywhere. After reaching top, we sat down and enjoyed views. Great moment. Calm and beautifull. Unfortunatelly we had to go back soon, so after few photos and sandwiches we returned to railway station.

What to see:

Busteni has "Babele" and "Sphynx" - wind-modelled stone shapes in the Bucegi Massif, accesible throw cable-car. A modern chair-lift is in construction to the Diham and Poiana Izvoarelor chalets. Urlatoarea waterfall (half hour trail from Cable-Car lower station).
The second cable-car from the top of Caraiman mountain link Busteni with Pestera hotel and the unique Monastery in the cave.
On top of the Caraiman Massif, at 2,484 m altitude, there stands the WWI heroes memorial (a 40 m high cross, made of steel), build between 1926- 1928, in honour of the country's fallen soldiers defending Romania against nazy Germany in the First World War.

So all these clouds in NZ were born in these Bucegi Mountains? :):) Can I send them back please? Very interesting notes Greg.
I like how the hills keep meeting in V-shapes in the centre, right up to the foot of the mountains themselves. Beautiful scene, well composed and good details. TFS.

Superb shot!
Great place and wonderful moment. This is wonderful country!
