212-2020 – Bucegi National Park


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is an aerial image of Bucegi National Park in Romania. Initially we joined the queue to hop on the cable car from Busteni to Babele, about 2200 m altitude. After 1 hour in the queue, we realised that we were almost not moving, so we end up taking a taxi to “Cabana Piatra Arsa” via Sinaia. From there, it was a nice climb up all the way up to “Babele” aka “The old ladies” and “the Sfinx”. Like, comment & share! 1 likes Related posts: 222-2020 – […]

Initially the wood burner stopped working and lots of smoke was coming out until I cleaned the chimney. It was full of residue. Also I had to remove […]

206-2020 – Family Reunion Photoshoot

205-2020 – Homework Time


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my daughter doing her homework. She is clearly missing her nursery, teachers and friends.

I only used Lightroom mobile app to make the image smaller for web use.

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my breakfast, lunch and dinner for today, a freshly squeezed fruit juice.
