Earlier this month I spent a week with my family travelling in Romania to discover new places and people and local habits. It was the first time we spent more than a few days and we visited more than one location and we really enjoyed it, so I am sharing with you some of the shots I took. I used my A6500 with the Samyang 12/2 and the Sony 18-135. Bigger size photos can be seen on Flickr.

A beautiful and diverse set with many lovely landscape scenes!

For me #1, #3, #14, #23 and #28 stand out as the highlights of the series. #1 is really a stunner, almost out of a fairy tale. And I think you made really good use of the 12mm lens.

A very enjoyable set!

TFS!

A most diverse glimpse of Romania. Apart from the medieval castle #1, I'm particularly taken by the salt mine #2 and #3, and I love how you'e used the con-trail to create a virtual sword in the hand of the statue in #8.
TFS.

Beautiful and diverse set of photos. I especially like the photos of Alba Iulia, historically Weißenburg, Siebenbürgen (Transylvania). Very nice work, thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

I want to go to Romania. So little time, so many places to visit. One of the great benefits of Dyxum is presented by this series - letting me see and learn about a place that is fascinating but that, unfortunately, I will probably never get to in person.

Thanks for your comments.

The castle in #1 lends itself well to photography and my shot is a "must have" for all visitors. The Samyang 12mm helped by including much more than what a phone-photographer would get.

The salt mine was equally impressive and also very popular among foreign tourists - I estimate that at least have the visitors on that day were coming from abroad.

Alba Iulia was a nice surprise with its well preserved/rebuilt fortress; if we are to speak of historical names, than we should go all the way back to the Roman Empire period(some 2000 year ago) when it was called Apullum.

There are so many great places to visit in this world that one is tempted to see all the famous ones first, but the grass is not always greener on the other side, so we decided to have a series of trips around our (relatively small) country and I will surely share these with all of you on Dyxum.

Stunning set of very interesting photographs Thank you for sharing them.

I particularly like that you have taken the trouble to link photo titles to their respective home pages.

#8 is the standout for me simply for the timing and your eye for the wow factor.

@Muby,

A great Travelogue series and far too many to comment on individually but as a story on your trip it makes a great series to be honest.

Take out images/sets etc. are #8 - that, if planned, is perfectly timed and is a great shot; if it wasn't planned then it's even better! As bonneville says, it has wow! factor in spades...

The Salt Mines are also very interesting and I love the changes in perspectives and viewing angles - they really show off the vastness of the whole place and bring home just how much we don't know what's under out feet sometimes.

The countryside really is just lovely and I think the waterfall in #27 is a nicely handled shot - an interesting perspective and I like the way the water just merges into the rock face below it. And #'s 14, 24, 25 and 28? Love those haystacks; such a change to what 'we' are used to seeing in the UK - the rather - unusual bell - like shape is certainly very different and seems to have balancing arms to keep them upright!

Finally, the cave images show just how popular they are and rightly so - you've got some fine images there with a good white balance to take what is often a yellow/brown tinge to images taken underground.

It's a fine set and a great advert for the Country - one hears a lot about Romania but this certainly makes it a lot more appealing than just words!

Thanks for sharing these and best regarsd, Neil.

You have been to some really special places.
What a beautiful country you have and so full of wonderful sites.
I liked the landscape pictures to see the beauty of the country.
The saltmine pictures for the strange neverseen world.
Thanks for showing your travelshots.
