Climbing in Veliko, Bulgaria

1 Comment

Not much choice for the 10-11 Dec weekend… who would expect + 14 ° C in full winter?  Together with some friends, I went for sport climbing in Bulgaria, Veliko Tarnovo. In the photo below, Catalin Serban focuses on his next move:


Ice climbing at Balea Lake, Fagaras

On 19 Nov 2011 we’ve been out in Fagaras Mountains again. This time, for playing with our ice-axes and crampons. There is a ice-fall next to Balea Lake. Not huge, but enough for us to taste again the ice.

I really like this photo that Silvia did, with me climbing in the right side:

Beautiful autumn landscapes we found during our weekend trip (15-16 Oct 2011) in Mehedinti Mountains. Few photos from our trip:






The view with only one tree in the sunrise light and everything else in the blue color of a cold autumn morning…will stay in my mind for a while:

This weekend (17-18 Sept 2011) I went to the seaside and took my DSLR with me. I must say I didn’t use this big camera lately, taking only my small compact Canon S95 with me in the mountains. But at the seaside, it’s different. 🙂

See below some photos:







Note: Photos made with Canon 350D + 18-55mm lens.

I also used a tripod, remote control and ND filter.
