Tomorrow I'll be at the Black Sea for few days and planning to visit also a small part of Bulgaria, our neighbors.
The Black Sea is a body of water between Eastern Europe and Western Asia, bounded by Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. It is supplied by a number of major rivers, such as the Danube, Dnieper, Rioni, Southern Bug, and Dniester. The Black Sea has an area of 436,400 km2, a maximum depth of 2,212 m, and a volume of 547,000 km3. It is constrained by the Pontic Mountains to the south and by the Caucasus Mountains to the east, and features a wide shelf to the northwest. The longest east-west extent is about 1,175 km.

Hi Daniel. Enjoy your Bulgarian experience. I am sure that we will be regaled with quality architectural shots. Is the poor sea in working order considering all the muck that flowing into it from all those rivers which flow through some countries which are not known for their environmental awareness. Like many photos taken around the world by top photographers, yours dazzles us with the beauty of Nature, but I wonder if this sea is like the Adriatic, slowly dying. Regards. Klaudio.

Hello Daniel,

A beautiful, minimalistic photograph concentrating on the blues and the white of the sea and sky.
I just love the composition and how the white lines in the f/g seem to mimic the lines of the clouds.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Dobar dan.
Danas smo komsije sa fotografijama na TE.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa oblacima koji dolaze. Lepa terasa za odmor sa lepim pogledom na pucinu.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

Good day.
Today we are neighbors with photographs of the TE.
Interesting and nice view, good text ...
Good work and compositions, beautifully demonstrated, good contrast and perspective, beautiful colors, beautiful moment captured with clouds coming. Beautiful terrace home with a beautiful view of the open sea.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

Hello Daniel,
It's an elegant composition of clean lines and surfaces and a pleasantly tight colour scheme.

Hello Daniel,
You have made good use of the graphical elements of the landscape at this point to provide a frame for that beautiful sky that seems to go on forever. Perfectly exposed with superb colours and clarity. Enjoy your break.

Bonjour Daniel,

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image car on a presque l'impression d'être à la proue d'un bateau qui fonce vers la mer morte qui semble bien tranquille en ce moment.



Hello Daniel,

Best regards,

Hi Daniel,a beautiful memory from your archive,a minimalistic composition from the Black Sea in a peaceful day of the end of summer,perfect capture very sharp as usual. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Daniel,

wonderful view over The Black See with an excellent composition and fine clatity. But for me the most impressive of this shot is this amazing cloud formation. Very well done.TFS.

With regards from Luxembourg

Ciao Daniel
perfetto il taglio verticale dove il cielo fa da padrone assoluto del campo visivo, ma ottimamente mixato con il resto della composizione. Pochi elementi, ma di grande valore.

Hello Daniel,

Excellent minimalist composition! I added it to my fav. list.

Best Wishes,

Hello Daniel
From this viewpoint it looks almost as if you where standing at the prow of a ship in the ocean. Great wide view over the perfectly blue body of water that is the black sea under an imaticulate sky.
Lovely scene indeed.
have a great time

Hi Daniel,
Beautiful Black blue sea. Well framed, original composition, good idea, photogenic result.

Hi Daniel, I'm delighted to greet you after a short vacation. Very good photo of this interesting composition, very well captured in this interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. A great work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good afternoon and happy start to the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hello Daniel,
As far as we can judge, the tourist season seems to be over here.
Never mind, the sky that you've captured here is certainly a wonderful one.
What an intense blue supplemented with long rows of splendid white clouds.
A simple subject but extremely beautifully presented.
Best regards, Paul
