Photographer's Note

Balea Lac – been there
Usually I do lots of landscapes. Almost embarrassing then to look into my photos posted form the TE meeting in Romania back in July and discover no classic landscape photo. I hope then that my version of the little lake in the alt.2000 m made of 3 photos HDR-treated can be accepted by the group of skilled photographers participating in this meeting.
This photo from Sunday morning at 09.15 just as the sun try to penetrate the morning mist – a cold morning with wind and only +4 deg celcius, later in the day as we arrived in the town Sibiu this had changed to +26 deg Celcius.
Let there be no question about the landscapes we passed through on our trip out of Bucharest to the region of Transylvania – it was a pleasure to explore and see all the changes from the big plain outside Bucharest to the high altitude mountains where Balea Lac was situated.

Balea Lac
is a glacier lake situated at 2034 m of altitude in the Făgăraş Mountains, in central Romania, in Sibiu County. There are two chalets opened all the year round, a meteorological station and a mountain rescue (Salvamont) station. It is accessible by car on the Transfăgărăşan road during the summer, and the rest of the year by a cable car from the "Bâlea Cascadă" chalet.

In 2006, the first ice hotel in Eastern Europe was built in the vicinity of the lake.
