Alpine Ecstasy: Dolomites, Julian Alps and Mountains of Bulgaria
Photos by Vladimir Donkov / verticalshot.com– Vladimir Donkov is a 22-year-old Bulgarian photographer with a passion for mountains and climbing. Since high school he has been working as a freelancer around Europe and the US. Donkov is always living his dreams, constantly looking for a new destination to setup his tripod and wait for the best light. Being out in the cold at 4am is not something strange to Vladimir, he even prefers it over the warm hut… His motto is simple: “There are no impossible places to shoot”. In this gallery are photos of the Dolomites in Italy, the Julian Alps in Slovenia and a few shots from the mountains in Bulgaria.
