Photographer's Note

Babele (meaning old women) is a name for an area on the Bucegi Mountains plateau in Romania.

Babele is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. The name comes from some mushroom shaped structures, formed due to erosion and to different rock durity.

The Bucegi Sphinx is another rock formation in the same area. The name comes from its sphinx-like appearance.

The Babele challey is accessible either by cable car from Buşteni or by road. It can also be reached by foot, coming from Buşteni through Valea Jepilor (Juniper Valley), or from the crest of Bucegi Mountains, from the Piatra Arsă challey.
