In the fifteenth century is mentioned in the chronicle of Sukrullah, Enisala Fortress, recalling the cities conquered in the Dobrogea campaign in 1388-1389, by Bayezid I Ildaram. At that time, the lake was Babadag combined with Lake Razim and this in turn was just a great golf on the Black Sea. In Donavici nautical maps, Cerneti, and in nautical maps slippery Dunavat Canal was navigable. With a favorable location, Enisala Fortress was placed more or less in central Dobrogea, controlling both land and maritime routes. It is assumed on the basis that the village identified the NV city should there be a port.
Closure is attributed to the Genoese fortress, if we consider monetary findings and clear analogies which can be in terms of wall construction techniques with the Genoese in Constanta and the Lower Citadel of Harsova. The closure of the city can be placed in the second half of the thirteenth century or first half of the next century. Black Sea property became almost exclusively in terms of trade Genoese after the Treaty of Nymphea in 1261. Genoese were the only ones who had to hand both motivation and means to raise a fortress. It is very likely to be used by school Byzantine craftsmen.
Using numismatic material found during the time the Enisala, ceramics typical "feudal" of origin "Byzantine province, dating between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Pick city is located Harsova time in the last quarter of century XIII. The central position, lack of economic activity, destination obviously political, administrative, military, could indicate that the city was actually the residence of a local leader.
Captured in the Ottoman campaign of 1388-1389, the fortress managed to maintain its position until 1396, when Mircea the Old conquers northern Dobrogea. Mehmed I will defeat the fortress's garrison from 1416-1417 and will do restoration work because, as we say Sukrullah, the cities of here "were ruined because giaours mindless". The main entrance with a width of 3 m and a height of 4m has a double arch. At the NE and SE corners there are two hexagonal towers and mid-N and E sides of each square plan tower.

Breath-taking view Daniel!
The POV is really great to capture the whole beauty of this landscape.But also the FG with remainings of the walls appeals to me much.
Have a good day

J'aime beaucoup la perspective offerte par le mur de pierres sur la droite. Il offre aussi une belle profondeur à la composition. Le paysage est de toute beauté vu de cette hauteur.

Your viewpoint has certainly shown us the strength of this fortress, with exceptional views across the countryside, to the sea and beyond. The textural details grab immediate attention, whilst the rocky outcrop makes a natural lead line.
My warm regards,

Fabulous landscape taken from high vantage point with the fortress leads all the way down sweeping the view to the horizon in such a great dof. The extensive depth gives the effect of vastness with the stunning green lowland catches the attention too. Its finely detailed with many more features which you have captured admirably. Great exposure and contrast and love the hues of the sky too, a peaceful looking sight. Very well shot, Congrats

for some reason we don't get to see as many landscape photos from Romania as we'd like on TE, so this is a good addition.
interesting note, lots of info and history there.
there's a real sense of ruggedness in this scene.

Tout bon le POV comme le cadrage de la forteresse qui laisse une vue imprenable sur le paysage, très joli avec les points d'eau

nitidezza, soggetto e composizione si amalgamano molto bene per un risultato di notevole effetto.
Molto ben dosati anche i colori.
Ciao e buona serata

Belle image cadrée verticalement de ce point de vue qui nous permet de bien découvrir l'arrière plan.La variation en douceur dans ce ciel crée le bon contraste avec la netteté de la roche au premier plan.

Superb showing the large panoramic image, with this wide plain, very green and with many areas of water, amazing textures with rocks of the fortress ruins in the foreground.
A day with good light that gives very good color.
The brightness and sharpness are also perfect.
Have a good night.
chrislo (4151) 2014-01-16 14:11
A very good composition using the decayed wall of the fortress to give a sense of perspective and a direction across the frame. I like the natural colours and the high degree of sharpness and depth of field throughout. Your high vantage point offers a stunnig view of this vast landscape. Well done.

Sharpness, exposure, colors, dof, vertical format, grey & white borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
carlo62 (28305) 2014-01-17 1:16
fantastica panoramica, grande profondità.
Ottima la composizione con il muro in pietre a destra.
Il taglio verticale aumenta la profondità, c'è un bel gioco di linee sul terreno costituito dai canali.

Fine corner view of the ancient Enisala Fortress overlooking the vast valley and waterways, and in good resolution and natural coloring.
Nicely composed and created,
