Winter Rhodopean Lakes

A significant part of Bulgaria's water resources is located in the Rhodope Mountains. I was curious to see how winter modifies the landscape and living conditions. The landscape caught my eye with its various figures, cracks, snow-covered trees, spectacular lights... I was there enjoying every piece of that enchanting variety. The atmospheric conditions were tough but life still followed its daily rhythm – the fishermen, telling me stories while drilling holes in the ice, a flock of birds drifting in the water or the horses left on their own and keen to take apple from my hand.
