Kremen Lakes

A day's march in Pirin Mountain, codenamed Blueberry Feast. Walking from Bezbog hut to Kremen Lakes, climbing Dzhano peak and camping out under the moonlight sky.

August is a predictable month. It's hot, without surprising spring rains, nor chill autumn mornings. In compensation the mountains are full of summer fruits: wild strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. The weather is not the right for landscapes, but it's perfect to eat a lot of the wild fruits, while traveling to the chosen destination.

Before reaching the first lake you climb an almost vertical barrier of rocks. Sweat and tiredness disappear upon this magnificent view.

This is the moment I came for, the sky breakout in flames and changes the landscape.

I had a couple of minutes before the dusk gave a place to the night sky.

Rays, as a projector.

The lenses and filters was so moist. I spent ten minutes wiping them without a result. The sweat spreads more an more, while the magic colors of the dawn were going away.

Guilty, that I ruined the whole morning, I took the short way back and in a couple hours I was going down with the chair lift.
