These photos were taken during a weekend trip on the Black Sea coast in Bulgaria, at Tyulenovo and Krapetz. I was there with friends, we crossed the border from Romania to Bulgaria at night and got lost driving on dark bumpy roads, trying to figure out the road signs written in Cyrillic characters. When we arrived to Tyulenovo it was almost 3 in the morning, you couldn’t see a thing, just the sea under a dim moon and some silhouettes of fishermen from the village throwing their nets. It was freezing cold, so we just put up the tents and tried to sleep. But my sleep was short because I woke up to take photos of the sunrise (besides, it was an opportunity to try my newly acquired graduated ND filter). But it was well worth it! You can see why here.
The next day we went to Krapetz and the scenery that passed by unnoticed the night before now revealed itself. We drove through shabby villages, lethargic under the summer sun, where the only inhabitants seemed to be the dogs sleeping on the side of the road, we crossed over fields with dry sunflowers and dusty unpaved roads that ended suddenly with high rocky cliffs above the sea.
