Lake Saint Ana

Lake Saint Ann

The only volcanic lake in Romania, Saint Ana is located in Harghita, 80km from Brasov and can be accessed from DN12 road but my recommendation is the more scenig DJ113 from Targu Secuiesc. Entry by car into the reservation costs 10 RON and there’s a car park 200m from the lake.Continue reading →

Originally published on

No, I won’t be talking about a new PC game – which I admit I’d buy right away if it were – rather about how we took a trip through the tunnel between two station on the upcoming Line 5.

Trip down memory lane

I just spent an hour backing up posts from an old blog.

It was something I set up in my first year of uni (back in VisCom) as we were required to post part of the modules. It’s interesting to see what I was like back then and my general style, especially since apart from the “homework” I also wrote about stuff I liked and photo insights.

It was short-lived unfortunately, having abandoned the blog after only a few months.

You can find the posts under the oldJphotoBlog tag.

Going mobile

This is the first blogpost from my phone.

I love technology and how easy it’s making everything. I just wish I had more time for it but I’m hard at work coding my photo portfolio.I’ve got hundreds of pictures that only I have seen.

I wasn’t kidding when I said coding from scratch

I hope to finish this as soon as possible but untill then here’s a photo that I’ll be putting in a new a very special series.

Guess the title if you can.
