Photography Workshop
The Art of Nature
The Lake Beliș- Fântânele, Someşul Cald and the forests of the Apuseni Nature Park gather together and build landscapes of special beauty. Whether we are talking about summer rains, accompanied by the mysterious fog of the forest, whether summer sunsets, with the sun that breaks through the clouds above the lake or morning steam rising above the river, nature will delight us throughout the workshop.
