16mm, f/5.6, 1.6sec., ISO100

Photographer: Tihomir Vitkov Petrov (Bulgaria)
Title: "Dream House"
Shooting location: Bulgaria, Karlukovo, little stone house, located near Prokhodna cave
Camera: Canon70D
Lens: Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX II (11-16mm f/2.8)

Photographer's comments:

"After a long walk in the countryside, the last rays burned the sky, and at a bend in the road, the silhouette of the house stood out against the background of pink clouds. Fortunately, more than 90 percent of the time I have the wide-angle Tokina 11-16mm mounted on my camera, which allowed me to react so quickly and shoot this sunset scene that lasted only a few minutes."
