Hi my friends!

Today first photo from our trip to Bulgaria.
We spended almost two weeks in small [about 2500] town called Obzor on Black Sea coast. Great place full of wild beaches with golden sands, rocks and fantastic landscapes. On second day after our arrival we went by beach to another small town called Byala. Byala means in Bulgarian [and in Polish too] - White. This name is taken from white rocks. We walked more than 10 kilometers by sands, then rocks and sea ;-) But it was worth our effords. We reached penisula called also Byala and saw one of most beautifull landscapes in our life. I was turning around and saying - Gosh, what a amazing place! One of first things which I captured was this sleeping dragon made from rocks.

Expect many more photos from this place!

I love the blue sky, makes me think I'm in Poland!! I've tried to see the dragon, but all I can see a face looking backwards in the middle of the overhang.
But Greg, the rock formation against the blue sky is great. Nice one.

Hi Greg,
Excellent composition and framing on this shot. Simple beauty in the rock and sky. The detail and colors are perfect. Nice Shot!

Most unusual rock formation Greg, you did a great job in capturing this with good exposure revealing details in the shadows. Sharpness is excellent, love the blue sky although there is a little noise there. Iv just purchased a 24" wide-screen LCD and I seem to see every wee issue in images now, more so my own! 6/10 Very well done.

This is quick Greg, I have to catch a flight out. Well deserved :-)

Hello Greg. Interesting capture. Great composition and nice sharp detail. Very well done. Have a great weekend.

Great shot Greg,
