Trekking story

In the previous blog I wrote about things that make us recharge our batteries. So, here is a short story about a trekking escape that I have done recently.The most convenient (time and distance) trails are in the Bucegi Mountains, which are part of the Romanian Carpathians.  Whether by car or train, we can reach the bottom of the route in two and a half hours. This is a pretty fast way to escape to nature, leaving behind the city tumult.  So, there I was, with my friends, in Busteni... continue reading

Passed the 100 Milestone of Uploads!

Switching to a digital camera, allowed me greater freedom to expand my photography hobby.After "Dreamstime" accepted my first uploads last year, I have finally passed the 100 mark.I enjoy nature as a main subject, but I am adding more variety.Some of the best places to look for subjects are nature preserves, bike trails, parks and botanical gardens.They are usually free or have modest fees, and have plenty of variety of subjects.My first two sales are from a "True forget-me-not"; taken on... continue reading

Off the beaten path

I've been an avid hiker since I can remember.Recording my discoveries on film (or with digital imaging) has always been one of my passions.I have found myself staying with the safe paths lately though. As I get older, climbing rocks and steep hills becomes more difficult.Not too long ago I took a detour during one of my hikes and found a hidden area out of sight of the worn pathway I frequently walk.The terrain became steeper and large rocks blocked the way.Driven by what was to be found... continue reading

Hiking in Upper Franconia, Bavaria (Germany)

Good morning,today I want to give you some general information about Hiking in Upper Franconia, Germany.For the start it's funny for me, that there's no real translation of the german word "Wandern" in english. I knew the common translations "hiking" and "rambling" out of other contexts. Especially the meaning of to "to ramble on" is surprisingly negative for something as positive like "Wandern". But in other languages it's even worse. I asked once, if there is a good translation for "... continue reading
