Rezervatia Narurala "Valea Zimbrului"

Rezervatia Narurala “Valea Zimbrului”

We call them zimbri, which in English goes like aurochs or bison bonasus, a name for european bison having a smaller and higher head than the North American bison. The picture is taken in 2009 at “Valea Zimbrului” ( Aurochs Valley) State Park, I hope this is the translation for a place/reservation which is held and protected by law.

Rezervatia Naturala “Valea Zimbrului” was opened in November 2008 and hosts 22 bison bonasus on a field with grass of 12 ha and 80 ha of forest. The main purpose of our authorities is to set them free to repopulate the Carpathian Mountains. Until then, this rare species can be admired daily with less than a dollar.

Location: Satul Acris, Comuna Vama Buzaului, Judetul Brasov, Romania.

Autumn on Oituz Autumn in Romania is very dissimilar from Carpathian Mountains to Romanian plain to Transylvanian Plateau to Danube Delta. These picture are taken on different trips. I would love to have my CDs here but I haven’t and I hope to give you the idea how fall looks in my country. So let’s be birds for few seconds and follow Miss Eliot who never thought we can travel by technical waves. “Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” George Eliot

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Albert Camus
