Shabla, Black Sea, Bulgaria

I have always thought that the sea is one of the most promising places to take photographs. If you go near a beach you can play with the shapes and forms created by water, if it is a rocky shore you can play with the rocks and the movement of the water. So if you feel uninspired on where to go to shoot this weekend, go to the beach, it's more beautiful in the winter.


Hope you like it, enjoy!

Je rêvais d'un autre monde,

où les hommes ne seraient plus immondes.

Je rêvais d'une Terre en paix,

où on vivrait sans avoir à s'en faire.

Et ce serait la paix sur Terre !


I dreamed of another world,

where human would break all of our chain.

I dreamed of another land in peace,

where we would live without worry.

And it would be peace on Earth!

Coordinates43.672°N 28.547°E

Basin countriesBulgaria

Surface area4 km2 (1.5 sq mi)

Islands2 (Big Island, Small Island)

Ramsar Wetland

Official nameDurankulak Lake

Designated28 November 1984

Reference no.293[5]

The freshwater Lake Durankulak is separated from the Black Sea by sand dunes and a beach strip, it has an area of around 4 square kilometres and features two islands in its western part, the Big Island (0.02 km2) and the Small Island (0.0053 km2). As the habitat of 260 rare and endangered species, the lake is one of the most important and well-preserved coastal wetlands in Bulgaria. Among the important birds in the area are the little bittern, ferruginous duck, mute swan, western marsh harrier, paddyfield warbler. The greater white-fronted goose, red-breasted goose and mallard spend the winter there, and there are large populations of the pygmy cormorant and great white pelican.


The lake is also an archaeologically important area. Pithouses of the oldest known inhabitants of Dobruja, dating to 5100–4700 BC, have been unearthed near the west shore, as well as 3500–3400 BC mound burials and a Sarmatian necropolis from Late Antiquity. The Big Island of Lake Durankulak is particularly important, as it is the site of an Eneolithic settlement of 4600–4200 BC, a cultural monument of national importance. The island also features a 1300–1200 BC fortified settlement, a Hellenistic rock-hewn cave sanctuary of Cybele (3rd century BC) and a Bulgar settlement from the 9th–10th century AD. Because of its age and importance, the archaeological complex has been dubbed the "Bulgarian Troy".[6]

Shabla Tuzla (250 decares) is located approximately 6 km of the town of Shabla (northeast of Bulgaria). The Lake is completely separated from the Black sea by a sand strip about 80 m wide. It is a salt lake – lagoon, formed mainly by infiltration of saline waters beneath the sand dunes which separate it from the sea.

Tuylenovo - Тюленово - is a village and seaside resort on the north Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, part of Dobrich Province in between Shabla and Kavarna. "Tyulen" means seal in Bulgarian, but seals hadn't been seen in the area since the 1980s. Tuylenovo can be reached by taking the old seaside road from Kavarna that passes along the rocky coastline, through the sea resort of ‘Rusalka’.


One more addition to my moon photo series. I was looking forward to go to Tuylenovo village to capture its beautiful rocks and idea to capture them with full moon seemed as a great combination. Not taken with usual 100 ISO as there is much less light than during normal blue hour. Moon gives lot of light but you still need much more sensitive setting in the camera to capture nice blue color.
