Inspired by an article about the 27 chapels that protect Momchilovtsi village I decided to do a series of photo stories about them or at least most of them. I think there is something mystical and unique about so many chapels gathered in such a small area around one village. The other reason is that the area of Momchilovtsi where all of the chapels are built is one of the least light poluted ares in Bulgaria, creating very good conditions for astrophotography. For a long time I wanted to do some good photos of the stars and the Milky way galaxy, and when you have an foreground object such as the Chapel of the Holy Transfiguration, this is a prerequisite for a truly wonderful photos.
This year thanks to the wedding of my friends had the opportunity to visit the rock phenomenon Meteora in Greece. The area is simply a paradise for landscape photographers. Meteora is located next to Kalambaka (known also as Kalampaka). The town lies at the foot of the rock formations and the view from the streets of Kalambaka is incredible.
Recently, lavender has become a symbol of photography in Bulgaria. Photos of lavender fields flooded the internet especially in June and July. So I decided to do something different and to organize a photo shoot with a model in lavender field.
I am always very impressed by rock formations created by mother nature over thousands of years. The Stone Mushrooms near the village of Beli Plast are one of these natural phenomenons. They are also known as Rock Mushrooms.
This year I managed to visit Kalugerovo village for St. Theodore's day - also known as Horse Easter. In Kalugerovo each year on the first Saturday after the Quadragesima Sunday is organized one of the most interesting holidays including attractive horse races called Kushii.
Looking at photos in Panoramio to scout for new and interesting places to photograph, I came across a suspension bridge over the Maritsa River. The bridge is located just before Popovitsa and Seltsi villages and connects them to the village Chalakovi.
