In the past years, I have taken stunning pictures of the sunrise and the sunset from different corners hidden from circulated roads or modern cities, in the beautiful region called Transylvania situated in Romania.

I chose to use some photography techniques and post-processing to emphasize the feelings and moods I personally felt in these places. In this series, I photographed fortified churches built by Transylvanian Saxons, mountain pastures, beautiful nature, villages where transport is based on ox and cart, portraying the pastoral idyll of Transylvania.

It’s not hard to see why the beautiful landscapes of Transylvania have sparked the imagination of so many writers. As English travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor wrote in 1934: ‘Transylvania had been a familiar name as long as I could remember. It was the very essence and symbol of remote, leafy, half-mythical strangeness; and, on the spot, it seemed remoter still and more fraught with charms.’ With this quote in my mind, I made a selection of last year's interesting photos, and I hope you will feel the magic from these nature photography shots too.

The hard work of the last 10 years was rewarded with a Sony World Photography Awards 2019 – National Award and the effort to promote my native county worldwide got me the title of “Tourism Ambassador”. Also, if you're interested, you can see my latest landscape photography posts on Bored Panda here and here.

Breathtaking. Any moment, a lilting song will fill the air, and a moment later a wandering minstrel will appear playing a whistle as he joins the morning birdsong.

Do you see the eyes on that cloud? Now that is something. How many faces do you see?
