In the Danube Delta we were able to experience and record particularly impressive sunsets due to the changeable weather. The photo of the anvil cloud over the sinking sun is reminiscent of the mushroom of an atomic bomb explosion.

The Danube Delta biosphere reserve (Romanian Delta Dunării) is located in the delta region of the Danube and the Black Sea. The Danube Delta is the second largest delta in Europe after the Volga Delta and covers an area of ​​5800 km², of which 72% with an area of ​​4178 km² are protected. This area is 82.5% in the Romanian part of the Dobruja landscape and 17.5% in the Ukraine.

The northern part of the reserve - the actual delta - is traversed by the three estuaries of the Danube entering from the west: the Chilia arm as the Romanian-Ukrainian border in the north, the Sulina arm in the middle and the Sfântu-Gheorghe arm in the south , Immediately to the south is the Razim-Sinoie lagoon complex, which is fed by canals. The area has been sparsely populated since ancient times. Agriculture, cattle breeding and fisheries use many of the local natural resources.

To date, around 5200 animal and plant species have been cataloged in the biosphere reserve. (Wikipedia)
