Photographer's Note

Dracula's Castle (he probably stayed here 1 night on his way through leading his army, in 1459) is up the hill on the left and overlooks Bran and its mountain pass. It was actually owned by Romanian Royalty. But I found these peaceful reflections in the lake at the bottom of the hill more compelling. Dracula (a.k.a. Vlad the Impaler (Vlad Tepes)) was on his way to attack the Saxons in Brasov.
