Parāng Mountains (Romanian pronunciation: [paˈrɨŋɡ]) are one of the highest mountain ridges in Romania and Southern Carpathians, with its highest peak Parāngu Mare reaching 2,519 m.

The Parāng mountains are located in the south-western part of the Central-Meridional Carpathians. They are the tallest mountains from the local Parang-Cindrel mountain group and the second largest mountains in the Romanian Carpathians after the Făgăraș Mountains.

In close connection with the relief characteristics of the Parang mountains, the vegetation is clearly shaped into 3 layers. The first layer is the broadleaf forest, which starts from the bottom of the mountains and goes as high as 1200m (northern slope) and 1400m (southern slope). They are made up of pedunculate oak, european hornbeam, silver birch and, the most common, but mostly spread on the souther slope, the European beech.

Hi Marius,a different pic and an another masterwork,the large version is a great spectacle,so real that seems to watch the view from a window and not watching a monitor.A great effect made by the clouds in background and a perfect quality despite the difficult light and the different perspective levels,i like it! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hello Marius,
Lovely landscape image of this impressive mountain range. I especially like the cloud formation near the center which looks like a rainbow shaped bridge. The composition is great, showing just enough grassy terrain in the foreground which leads your eyes to the beautiful pines and then out towards the distant mountain ridges. The large version is awesome!!

Hello Marius,

I like such mountain landscape. Well captured this Parang Mountain covered by clouds. Very nice color and sharpness. Well exposure on cloud too.
Thanks for sharing with informative NOTE where you described different important vegetation,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Lovely landscape , impressive Marius.

Thanks for sharing.


Grand view of these mountains on a rainy day, Marius.
The clouds floating over the valleys look beautiful.
The row of trees in the foreground is the most charming component of your composition.
