"The Bucegi mountains are located in central Romania, south of the city Braşov. They are part of the Southern Carpathians group of the Carpathian Mountains.
To the east, the Bucegi mountains have a very steep slope towards the popular tourist destination Prahova Valley (a.o. Buşteni and Sinaia). At a higher elevation is the Bucegi Plateau, where wind and rain have turned the rocks into spectacular figures such as the Sphinx and Babele.
They're grouped in three parts:
* Bucegi Mountains (Omu Peak - 2505 meters)
* Leaota Mountains (Leaota Peak - 2133 meters)
* Piatra Craiului Mountains (Baciului Peak - 2238 meters)
Between Piatra Craiului Mountains and Leaotă/Bucegi Mountains there's a pass called Bran Pass, where it used to be a customs point between Wallachia and Transylvania and was defended by the Bran Castle.
The Bucegi is believed to be the Thracian holy mountain Kogainon, on which the mythical figure Zalmoxis resided in a cave."
While I was preparing this photo to posting, in my music player the Scorpoions' song "Wind of change" just started... I realised, it could be quite good, if this photo and that song work together...

A nicely planned composition - the eye flows effortlessly around the image as it maintains interest even though at first sight a simple enough scene there are subleties and complexities to explore - very nice colour - the clouds work so well - the light and shade superb - I know you didn't control all of thjis but you still had to decide when to click!!!
best wishes Kev

Another good shot of the Bucegi here. You got nice beginning of spring fell, with the patches of ground coming from underneath the snow.
The light is good as well.
I think the photo would be better without the left part and more of that great sky included.
Anyway, very good job!
