Photographer's Note

It is my 10th birthday and the first time i celebrate myself on TE, but once in a decade is not too cheesy, i suppose. The next will come with my 20th year, promise :)

Eastern Black Sea Region houses Kaçkar Mountains, the so called "Alps" of Turkey, with many high mountains and plateaus, waiting for the visitors who are interested in high altitiude trekking. The lower parts are filled with thousands of acres of thick rain forests, rivers and cascades. The overall landscape can be called a wild heaven on Earth.

This one was taken 6 years ago, in Avusor Plateau @ 2.500 meters of altitude, just before a heavy mist covered everywhere. The climb lasted for one and a half hours, and i was sweating constantly in a chilling climate, my sweat freezing all in a sudden...
