Photographer's Note

The photo was taken in the afternoon in a little village Szybene situated in a White Czeremosz Valley. It's great place to start one's trek in Czarnohora mountains and to reach the highest peak of Ukraine Howerla. The village itself is very pittoresque from one side and really poor from the other. The contrast between buildings is striking. But the place is just charming. While walking in forest or climbing slopes you may see extraordinary things. Like we did. While we were climbing some path up the mountain slope, tired, with heavy bags a man crossed this path. Well, nothing special. But the point is that the man had just one leg! He was using some old branches to keep straight. You may also watch all those people who are climbing without shoes.

Because the sky wasn't particularly interesting I've used few gradual filters. The effect is strange but I quite enjoy iy. I wonder if You do??
