How time flys. Ican't believe it has been so long since I last posted here. I am sure the years get shorter as you get older.
I was fortunate enough to return to the Danube Delta in Romania in May for a week of photography. Its an amazing place! This year I spent the entire week in the Delta based at Mila 23 and a new area which has recently opened on the Ukraine border near Periprava known as Ultima Frontiera (the Last Frontier).
If anyone is interested there is a complete day by day account on my
blog but thought I would post a selection from the first few days of the trip. I will do another post with a selection from the latter half which includes some interesting encounters with European Golden Jackals.
