Аrda river near the town of Madzharovo, Eastern Rhodope Mountain, Bulgaria. This gorgeous river meander is located in one of the most important preserves for birds and wildlife in Bulgaria. More than 150 species of birds nest in this unique natural habitat including the endangered Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus) and Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus). Panorama consists of 12 vertical shots taken with Canon 30D and a wide-angle lens. You would agree this is not a typical image for me. Actually this panorama was meant to be a making-of for my Arda Solargraph but the partial sunlit landscape and the approaching storm created a beautiful scenery making the panorama worth for the Gallery. The solargraph recorded 6 months of sun trails from the same perspective. It covered about the same angle of view but on a single sheet of photo paper. More info below the Arda Solargraph.
