In front of the Brancoveanu Monastery in Sambata, Brasov county.
A monument of rememberance, of gratitude for all the people who, during the 40 years of communism in Romania have done their best to make sure, it's just a dark shadow on history and not something that will last. Every single name on that cross has been persecuted, closed in special prisons, places where they were supposed to stay until the "tovarasi"(romanian form of comrad) would decide upn their fate.
This december we will celebrate 20 years since the revolution. Communism has passed, but in my honest opinion, other 20 years are necessary until all the communist are gone too...and good God, let's hope not a single one remains for more than that:P

Linda composição. O céu em contraste com a cruz ficou impressionante e a moldura ajudou muito para este impacto.

I have with a lot attention reading your note, I hope together with all your fellow countryman that this period is past.
During the revolution 20 year ago came a Belgian cameraman dead, and a soundman out of my municipality middle of the WAR, but was not hurt.
Family and friend of the victims, I wish everyone a lot strength.
Composition and presention are very well.
Nice done, TFS.

your photo is not only evocative of important historical period, but has also an atmosphere with the sorrounding landscape and specially for a very intersting sky.

Frumoasa fotografie cu putere evocativa pentru vremurile de incercare care au trecut. Dumnezeu sa-i odihneasca in pace pe cei care au suferit foarte mult in perioada comunista. Iar noua sa ne dea minte pentru a pricepe si a invata din greselile trecutului.

Hi Adrian, very strong image created here with the cross set against an angry sky. Very symbolic of Romania's struggle.
Warm regards, Roberto
