Transfagarasan Highway by Exileden Transfagarasan Highway by Exileden

It's the most unique and legendary highway known as "7C road" also named as Transfagarasan highway, where human's power meet with the nature. That highway goes very high through alp peaks (close to...). It's a very emotional and adrenaline-like highway to drive. Photo obviously flattens it's dimension but in real life feels... extremely high, scary and feeling to not "fall" from twisty roads at edges. Some roads on turns does not have barriers. The views are extremely impressive.


Unfoertunately it's not the best photo. I mean, I did MY BEST out of NOT good weather/lightning conditions of that trail. I terribly hate fully sunlight weathers for photography where the contrast of lightning and shadows is way too extreme and flattens all colors. My camera went crazy because did not know where to focus: on shadowed areas or highlighted. I really hoped for a cloudy day to take photographs of this trail's landscape but eh... :/. I did my best with that disgusting contrast of lights by my A77 camera... Sun, please go away!

I heard there were roads in Europe that were basically paved cow trails.  This looks like one of them with the way it does its crazy switch back route.

I like it very much! It somehow reminds me the road to Andorra (by the French side), but be careful, this is no game ^^
