Photographer's Note

The photo was taken from the Vereckei-pass on the edge of the Carpathian mountains. According to the tradition the Hungarians came through this pass before they invaded the Carpathian basin and settled there down.
I would be pleased if you told me your opinions about the photo!

Have a look at the view from the Beszkid mountain and the monument on the top of it! I took this photo from there.
