Quite a few years ago, I published this gallery of photographs I'd taken in the province of Dobrogea in Romania. I've been going through my catalog lately, re-discovering the places I've visited and photos I haven't yet edited, so I thought I'd put together another gallery of photographs for you. You may know that Dobrogea … Continue reading More photos from Dobrogea
Years ago, we took a quick day-trip into the Danube Delta which involved some boating (hence, rowing). It was a fun little trip to the edge of the Delta.

To the West and South, you'll see wide, mostly flat fields, ideally suited for agriculture and for aeolian power. To the East, there is the … Continue reading Dobrogea, Romania
This morning around 4 am, Ligia and I started a cross-country drive through Romania. We started in the county of Sibiu, Transilvania and finished in the county of Constanta, Dobrogea. I've driven the approximate route from start to finish several times, but I only drove this particular route once before. I wanted to take photos … Continue reading Driving from Sibiu to Constanta
