Photographer's Note

This shot has been taken in the village called Pentowo, located close to Bialystok.

Name “ Pentowo” is because in XVI century, when the Polish King Zygmunt August II was in possession of the Castle in Tykocin, they had great hordes of horses. Here in Pentowo they were keeping them, and tying their legs with rope – so they couldn’t run away. This practice is called in polish – pętanie, and the rope itself it’s called Pęto. From here, the name was created Pentowo. More here: pentowo.pl/en/history/
