Photographer's Note

View of the Rhodope mountains in Southern Bulgaria, taken from the top of the main skiing mountain in Pamporovo.

This photo is taken from the top of the mountain not too far from the Snezhanka communications tower (see my other Bulgaria photos), looking southwards. The faint mountain in centre of the background is actually in Greece (according to our ski instructor!). It hadn't snowed for a couple of dayswhen this was taken, and being the sunniest ski resort in Europe, it doesnt take long for the snow to melt from the trees on the mountains.

The Rhodope mountains are famous for their beauty and also for their snshine record, and also for being the mythical home of the singer Orpheus.
