Carpathian dwarf rooster

Carpathian dwarf rooster photographed in the late afternoon October light, Comarnic, Prahova county(©Valentin Mandache)

Continuing with my posts praising the wonderful autumnal light of which we benefit here at 45 degree north latitude in the lower Danube region of Europe, I would like to present you the image of a splendid domestic bird photographed in October last year in Comarnic, in the foothills of the Meridional Carpathian mountains (the Transylvanian Alps). It is a free range, two or three years old, dwarf rooster, proud in its immaculate plumage and in an excellent state of health. Organic farming is one of the main attractions for anyone considering buying a country property in Romania, and this photograph is one of the innumerable proofs in that regard 🙂


I endeavour through this series of periodic articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.


If you plan acquiring or selling a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in sourcing and transacting the property, specialist research, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.
