Far away from civilization, the Danube Delta is said to be the paradise of the migrating birds. Every year tens of rare species arrive on this blessed land to nest and lay eggs. Over 1800 species of plants and no less than 3500 species of animals can be found all over the Delta territory, all of them forming 30 different types of ecosystems. This is our photo tour destination – a fabulous land where nature is at its best. A ride onboard motor launches will give us a chance to meet the birds of the Delta, as well as to photograph fishermen casting their nets in the sunrise light.

This is a photo tour where we want to explore less visited places, where the wild birds make their nests. Accompanied by our guide we will meander through the canals of the Danube, trying to get as close as possible to the colonies of pelicans. Sunken forests, wild animals, spectacular sunrises and sunsets are the subjects of our photos. To make all this perfect, we cannot miss a traditional fish meal and a bath in the Danube. The sunset will find us ready to catch the colours playing on the waterline, interrupted from time to time by the tip of some boat.

 

Un colt de natura aflat departe de civilizatie, Delta Dunarii reprezinta paradisul pasarilor migratoare. In fiecare an zeci de specii rare poposesc pe acest petec de pamant binecuvantat, pentru a cuibari si a scoate pui. Peste 1800 de specii de plante si nu mai putin de 3500 de specii de animale pot fi intalnite pe teritoriul deltei, toate constituind 30 de tipuri de ecosisteme diferite. Aceasta este destinatia fototurului nostru. Un teritoriu fabulos in care natura se etaleaza exuberant. O plimbare la bordul barcilor cu motor ne poate oferi un bun prilej de a intalni pasarile deltei, dar si de a fotografia pescari intinzand navodul in lumina rasaritului.

Este un fototur in cadrul caruia ne propunem sa exploram locuri mai putin vizitate in care isi fac adaposturi pasarile salbatice. Insotiti de ghidul nostru vom naviga pe canalele Dunarii incercand sa ne apropiem cat mai mult de coloniile de pelicani. Paduri scufundate, animale salbatice, rasarituri si apusuri spectaculoase vor reprezenta subiectele fotografiilor noastre. Si pentru ca totul sa fie perfect, nu vor lipsi o masa cu specific pescaresc si o baie in apele Dunarii. Asfintitul ne va gasi pregatiti sa surprindem jocul de culori de pe oglinda apei, spart din timp in timp de varful vreunei barci.

Mihai Moiceanu is one of the best, if not the best landscape photographer working in Romania today. I have not had a chance to attend any of his workshops, but from the photos that I have the pleasure to see week after week, I can tell that anyone serious about their photography will enjoy a rare privilege to spend some time with him. Look, and listen, to see how he feels and responds to the light and the beautiful nature that is Romania.


Thank you for a wonderful two weeks! I learned a lot about composition and making photos and I enjoyed all the food and your sense of humor. It was a great tour!
