Forgotten Roads - Tabla Buţii



 Don't come after



Ask the mountains 

 Why couldn't this go on?



 Couldn't our happiness go on?



Ask the sun that lightens up the sky


Ask the mountains


Ask the green in the woods and the trees


Ask the mountains


 Why couldn't this go on?



Couldn't our happiness go on?


 Ask the mountains



Wild woods, highlands
















 Don't come after



 Please don't follow me along



When you read this I'll be gone







Tabla Buţii is a "pass" - an alpine passage at the height of 1340m, in the Curvature Carpathians.
The link through this thoroughfare was always made between the Southern Carpathians towards Muntenia and the interior bend of the Carpathians's curvature to the North - West through Ţara Bârsei with Transylvania.
This pathway is easily accessible thanks to the landscape - not very hilly, being the shortest way between Transylvania towards the Occident and the Danube's exits to the Black Sea, towards Levant.
 Tabla Buţii spot is the summit, the peak between the Valley of the Teleajen that rises from Muntenia and the origins of Buzău in the Ciucaş Massif towards Transylvania.
The name of Tabla Buţii comes from the printed "tables" - applied in the past on the barrells filled with merchandise during customs, because there was a custom between Ţara Românească and Transylvania.

A few thoughts:

Although it is clear some people live there, it seems to me to be a country meant for passing though on the way to somewhere else. The horses belong there; people do not, other than for travelers. It makes me think of regions in Montana and Wyoming. It is "see forever" country, and makes me wish I could be an eagle, but only for an hour or two.

There seems to be a frustrated artist in the region, one with a chainsaw who wishes to create monuments from dead or dying trees.

The scenery and the photography both are magnificent, Wind. I never realized before you what a beautiful and wild country Romania can be.

Your music is very haunting.

Thank you so much for stopping by our Colorado blog!

And now I've found your blog. These photos remind me a lot of southwestern Colorado. Our daughter lives at 9,000 feet above sea level - I'm not sure what that would work out to in meters...

Beautiful scenery but I especially like the gorgeous photos of the horses! Superb!

Mr. Paparazzo said...

Wow, beautiful mountains, beautiful photos! I like that strange trees too.

Bibliotecaru said...

Şi mie mi-e dor de cărările fiinţei... din păcate nu voi mai putea să le revăd în această viaţă.

Dar îmi pot aminti o poezie destul de nouă a lui Ioan Radu Văcărescu...

mergeam spre undeva
nu era foarte departe
nici uimit
nici foarte atent nu eram
poate doar la nevăzutul fâlfâit
din frunzişul înroşit a moarte

şi cum singur mergeam
spre un loc de aproape
pe cărarea şerpuitoare
mărginită de mesteceni puieţi
mă-ntrebam ca-ntr-o doară
cu suspectă candoare
dacă n-am greşit cărarea
din ce în ce mai atent
la fâlfâitul rotund de ereţi

mergeam singur spre ceva
credeam că aproape
şi abea aşteptam să ajung
dar cărarea ocolea la nesfârşit
într-un urcuş uşor
printre fagi tineri
şi răsturnate stânci
iar pasu-mi devenea mai lung
şi mai precis
în ritmul respiraţiei adânci

mergeam fără de nici o ţintă
m-am dumirit târziu
dând ocol acelor creste fără de hotar
ca un erete
pe cărarea şerpuitoare de aer
şi-am început să mă opresc
la fiece altar
de arbori
de rocă
de iarbă
şi de apă-n repeziş
atent şi uimit
la respiraţia munţilor de alabastru
frate cu ereţii spintecând cerul
cu ţipete şi planări în frunziş
pelerin cu suflet
şi virtute de sihastru

"Pe-un picior de plai, Pe-o gură de rai"... Ramâi fara cuvinte în fata acestor imagini. Panorame perfecte, cu detalii poetice, ca picturi realizate de un mare maestru. Dar... de fapt, natura este cel mai mare artist...
Frumos surprinsa în fotografie iesirea ta în libertatea vailor si dealurilor!

Nice expansive landscapes that show an often simple foreground subject. Your love of the mountain scenery and horses is expressed here. I like how you fitted the captions into the last three images :-)
