    A few shots from my recent trip to Belogradchik, Bulgaria. This place is amazing, and I basically had it to myself. C&C welcome and appreciated!

    Nice that you included that photographer on the third image - shows the real scale of this landscape. Very nice!

    Where are the elves? Where's Frodo? Where's Gandalf? You almost expect some magical fantasy creature to appear in each shot. Really beautiful!

    Another friend told me it reminded her of Lord of the Rings as well. This certainly was a magical place, and it didn't hurt that I basically had the place to myself. I must have sat at that outcrop in #2 for nearly an hour undisturbed (which was good, as it gave me time to remember that I had, in fact, packed the graduated neutral density filter I needed to take that picture). I highly recommend it to anybody in the Balkans.

    Oh, and thanks everybody for the kind words!
