This is an aerial view of Cuejdel lake just before the complete frost. Cuejdel is the biggest natural dam from Romania, that's the explanation for these trees.

My name is Gheorghe Popa, I was born in Transylvania and I am a pharmacist by trade but I enjoy traveling. I have always loved photography but over the last five years it started to become more serious. I really wanted to make top-level photography and I am becoming increasingly better at it.
When I am not traveling I like to take photographs around my home. I am fortunate to be close to the forest where I like to go every chance I get.
It’s safe to say that my passion for photography led me to travel to the farthest corners of the world from Northern Europe (Norway, Faroe Islands
