Romania under Lights (4)

Feb 05

These are two images taken at “Kilometre 0” in Bucharest, including a special monument (with a wind rose - covered by snow -, the ecliptic with the zodiacal signs, and the sun) made by Constantin Baraschi in 1938, and the Saint George Church made by Constantin Brancoveanu in the 1700s.

Unfortunately, the second image shows also a sample of a too aggressive artificial illumination.
