Golden Autumn in the Sacarimb Mountains

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Ioana Bena

An end-of-summer day in the Gold Mountains of Transylvania, Romania. Gold has been continuously exploited around since the Roman Empire. People here are miners, peasants and hunters ... and forest warden, like our friend. They are poor and used to. "They live in the folklore", Eliade would say. And if you let quietly all your senses wander around, you'll see the golden and mild light, the all-bearing mountains, time following only its own rules - and an incomparable sweetness is poured onto your soul. You'll find yourself naturally out-of-time, in a world of pure concepts and archetypes.

Location: Sacarimb, Deva, ROMANIA
