Hi again,

As i saw today that our Polish friends arrived home from their trip and posted some shots, i decided to join along and return a favor :)

As you probably already read in their posts, we had a little TN meeting in Romania with Michal (cedryk) and Krzysztof (cataclysta) and so i'd like dedicate this photo to them. I had a really great time with them and trust i will enjoy my future trip to Poland very much as well :)

In contrast with them, i didn't take a lot of photos during the 2 days we spent together, but we did get too see some nice sights and travel around the Bucegi Mountains. At the end of the secound day, we got to this nice view point from where i took this shot and i remember Michal saying that, to him, an image like this describes Romania probably the best...so i hope it fits :)

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting :)

Hello Horia,
Thanks for the dedication and this wonderful shot. Indeed, to me the endless layers of mountain ridges are the clue of Romania. They look marvelously at dusk and you pictured that most accurately. Very good idea to use vertical frame too!
With complements and great memories from Romania (just around a week ago),

Dear Horia,
I'm glad that you could meet with our Polish friends!
This shot is really beautiful!
I like the layers of ridges fading into the horizon with the sense of perspective and distance really brought out in this mountain scene in a fine and subtle change of shades and colours.
Thanks and have a great weekend my friend,

Hello Horia

Hello Horia
A superb capture that almost makes me feel like I was there...A very interesting choice of lens and convertor combo but it was it was chosen well giving the selected segment of the Vista that you chose.
All the Best
(ps..Max is having a great season)

Hi Horia, very impressive landscape,there a lot of differents level of light and this is a beautifull idea and experiment of perspective...very good sharpness too.Thanks for share,have a nice Sunday,LUCIANO.

A lovely dedication, Horia.
I love the layers here, I feel that if perhaps I can traverse these mountains, I will reach 'moksha' beyond them.
Very well done, my friend!

Hallo Horia
A great image that have a soft to it and leaves a lot to the imagination. The different layers are well seen and you captured it beautifully. I like the depth of field seeing from closeby to far back and beyond. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Dear Horia!

It's like a dream: this landscape invites me to open my wings and to fly through that beautiful nature. Far away, caressed the pastel colours and soft lines of the hills... Many thanks for this moment of happiness!

Kind regards


Buna Horia
Este una din acele imagini simple, dar pline de armonie si care incanta ochiul. Foarte placuta trecerea gradata de la nuantele mai intunecate, usor albastrii in prim plan, la ultimele doua straturi, in culori calde si abia vizibile. Frumos!
Toate cele bune,
