New Year's party up on the mountain

Published September 19th, 2012

The end of 2011 found me up in the Romanian mountains, together with a good friend. We were armed with warm clothes, some canned and dry food and,mainly, our cameras. We spent 5 days on the top of Ceahlau, doing almost nothing but shooting.

As for the New Year's party, it meant trying to capture some fireworks from the city below at midnight (and failing), a cup of hot wine after that and going to bed at 1 o'clock, in order to wake up for the first sunrise of the next year.

ps: I don't know why the photos are enlarged. They are 700px on the long side and should stay that way.
