Autumn in Piatra Craiului (photo)
On the weekend of September 28-29, 2013, I participated in a photo session in Piatra Craiului. Along with a few F64 members and about 20 travel bloggers and photography enthusiasts, we tested Canon's latest photo and video equipment. I chose CANON EOS 6D and a telephoto lens 70-200 mm F / 2.8.
Piatra Craiului, massively spectacular, it offers visitors unique landscapes, hosting a multitude of protected habitats and species. Piatra Craiului National Park is a protected area established in 1990, with national park status, for the conservation of biodiversity and landscape, of valuable species, for the promotion and encouragement of tourism and for the awareness and education of the public in the spirit of protecting nature and its values.
The defining elements of Piatra Craiului National Park:
- The most spectacular limestone ridge with a length of almost 25 km and heights of over 2000 m;
- Special floristic diversity - over 1100 species of higher plants;
- The presence of the carnation of Pietrei Craiului, an endemic species for this mountain massif;
- The Great Grohotiş or Horjul Mare located on the western slope of the massif, which offers the landscape an extra spectacularity;
- The ravine under Colţii Grindului, the second deepest in Romania (-540 m);
- Dâmbovicioara Cave;
- Cerdacul Stanciului, geological formation resulting from the collapse of the ceiling of an old cave;
- The typical mountain villages Măgura and Peştera, which preserve the traditional values of the area.

Autumn in Piatra Craiului is very beautiful. But I don't think it makes sense to start writing compositions about autumn, so I'd better leave you with the 20 photos below. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. You have to "read"!
