244-2020 – Clouds over the Heroes’ Cross on Caraiman Peak

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a bunch of clouds over the Heroes’ Cross on Caraiman Peak. The Heroes’ Cross is located in the saddle of the Caraiman Mountains, on the slope to the Seacă Valley at an elevation of 2,291 metres (7,516 ft). The cross itself has a height of 28 metres (92 ft) and two arms of 7 metres (23 ft) each.[1] The monument is the tallest summit cross in the world situated at such an altitude, as recognized in 2014 by Guinness World Records.[2]  Like, comment & share!
