It's always a struggle for me to describe the photos I'm taking.

Mostly because I can't possibly limit all the beauty, emotions, and atmosphere in one text excerpt. The great thing about this is it makes me want to capture photographs in such a way that they don't need a description.

In this particular case, I couldn't take credit for it. Nature bloomed and amazed me from the moment I left the city until I returned home.

I'm a student who started photographing three months ago when I bought my very first camera, a 6D Canon with a 50 mm lens. Besides photographing and studying, I am a part of Romanian Christian Medical Students Association.

This is what brought me to Marisel, a small village near my hometown of Cluj-Napoca, in the beautiful land of Transylvania. I wish I could say I went there on a vacation or a getaway weekend, but the truth is I went there with the other coordinating students to plan our meetings for the upcoming year. There wasn't that much time for capturing photographs in the best hour when the sunlight is perfect, but I knew I had to make the most of the backdrops I did have.

With only 3 hours slept a night, I woke up before the sunrise and went on a hill to watch it in all of its glory. What I didn't realize was that our cabin was surrounded by hills and mountains, so I caught only a glimpse of it. Now that I've gone through the trip's photos and how beautiful nature can be, the sun not being in the perfect position during the perfect hours doesn't really matter.

It's about the moments, the memories, and the feelings these pictures transmit.

Hopefully, you can feel the fresh air and peace radiating from the photos no matter where you are.
