THIS is my favourite shot taken while hiking the Rila Lakes in Bulgaria. I took it once we had reached the peak and could look down on all seven glacial lakes.
It’d been a great walk to the top and I’d been taking photos the whole time. The landscape was stunning and the lakes pristine. The contrast of the green and blue was striking. It was very hard not to take a great picture.
This one was taken just before noon while I was lying down. It’s a shot of the diamond-shaped lake seen through the long grass and the mountains stretching into the distance. I recommend to anyone on a trip to Sofia to visit the lakes. I took this on my iPhone 7Plus.
MAY 31st was a cold Wednesday morning. In 1916, thousands of sailors were waiting on the rolling grey waves in the North Sea.
