I Wake Up At 5AM To Hike The Transylvanian Mountains And Photograph Stunning Landscapes

Hiking and being in nature inspires me a great deal, so capturing these experiences in stunning pictures is one of my passions.

I captured these beautiful photos during my journeys through the Maramures (a small county in Transylvania, Romania). The beautiful landscapes I photographed in this region are serene and tranquil. Currently, I see my photographic style as traditional landscape photography.

I like to use the rich morning and evening light for a dramatic effect and accentuating the beauty of nature. Waking up at 5 AM, searching for a view-point, waiting for the perfect light, and finding an outstanding element in the beautiful views around me – that’s my perfect recipe for transposing my feelings and my mood into a photography artwork.

The mix of colors is amazing! The dawn or eve times of the pictures brings the colors to life in a way that I don't think can be duplicated.

Very pretty but the cranked up colours and the huge amount of blurriness makes a lot of the settings look like models. I think the pics would be a tad stronger if they'd look a bit more real and a bit less Disney, but of course that's just my personal taste.

The effect is called tilt shift. In Instagram there is an option available. For my cam pics I do them in Photoshop. I dont know about him :)
