Pirin

Although this was my seventh trip to Bulgaria, and I thought I had seen everything, my dear friends Genka and Petar still managed to wow me again and surpass my expectations. We drove up a long and winding mountain road into the Pirin Mountains, and then hiked on foot for another hour and a half, eventually reaching a beautiful lake at around 2000 metres up. Along the way we were overwhelmed by the breath-taking scale and beauty of our surroundings. We were dwarfed by the mountain ridges and amazed by the vistas they created. The stream that led to the lake was teeming with trout. Pirin is one of a trio of large mountain ranges in Bulgaria, the others being Rhodopi (which I have also visited) and Rila (which is next on my list).On this trip, I only took the Olympus OMD EM5 and a trio of primes: the Olympus 45mm F/1.8 and Panasonics 20mm F/1.7 and 14mm F/2.5. Most of the images below were taken with the latter two. Petar is in some of the images, providing a sense of scale. Well, I hope the photos speak for themselves and demonstrate what an incredibly stunning country Bulgaria is. I am eternally indebted to Genka and Petar for showing it to me.
