I spent two days in Romania last week. Unfortunately I had no time for ‘real’ photography and the iPhone had to serve as my camera.
I think it did it’s job admirably.
Here I was on a mountain road in the north of Romania. Magnificent landscapes spread as far as I could see. All under a very menacing sky. In fact five minutes later I found myself in a monstrous downpour with hardly any visibility at all.
The landscape is in fact stunning. No image tweaking was necessary to get these gorgeous colours.
Nothing like the light just before some major rain. Beats even the so called ‘golden hour’ in my opinion.
Of course I spent some time in the major northern city on Cluj-Napoca too but more of that soon.
For the moment I want to remain in the countryside. At 1200m (3500 ft) elevation. Hills, meadows, free ranging cows as far as you can see. With some small villages perching on the crests or in the valleys.
I just wonder how they manage in winter under heavy snow at minus 25° C (-13° F)…
When I was there of course it was not cold. A balmy, humid average of 28°C (82° F)
I sincerely regret that I did not have more time to explore this great country. But some time very soon I’ll return and I’ll manage to have more time for photography.
Thanks for accompanying me on my trip!
