About me

Welcome to the captivating world of photography!

I’m Violeta, and I have a big love for taking pictures of landscapes and the night sky. Nature has always been close to my heart, and as someone who loves to travel, I made it my mission to capture the breathtaking moments and the beauty of each place I visit. My journey into photography started with a focus on dogs, especially my speedy whippets. They run really fast, around 50 km/h, and I wanted to capture their quick movements with clear and sharp photos. So, I decided to get my first camera, and that’s when my photography adventure truly began.

Milky Way Photographer of the Year – 2023

This photo was one of the 25 selected as the best in the world by Caputre the Atlas. Look at this beautiful picture of mine taken in Socotra, a mysterious island in the Indian Ocean between Yemen and Somalia. It’s one of the darkest places on Earth, and there’s something extraordinary waiting to be seen.

Get lost in the stunning combination of special dragon blood trees and a breathtaking Milky Way that stretches across the night sky. It’s a sight that will amaze you and make you feel something deep inside. Everything comes alive in this special place, and you can’t help but fall in love with the beautiful balance of light and darkness.

I took this picture to share the incredible beauty of Socotra and remind everyone how important it is to appreciate and protect these unique treasures. Let’s celebrate these wonderful places and make sure they stay safe for future generations.

Starry Monkeys

Captured within the captivating Monastery of Bhutan Kingdom, this picture shows a truly typical scene. Usually hanging out with the monks, this playful monkey family has got a knack for snatching some delicious treats. They’re always around, ready to swipe a bite and add some mischief to the holy vibes.

Through the Window

The breathtaking Monastery Ad Deir, nestled in the splendid city of Petra. Prepare yourself for an adventure because reaching this exquisite beauty requires a sweaty hike under the scorching sun. Trust me, though, it’s totally worth it! As I stood atop, I cleverly framed one of the remarkable UNESCO World Heritage sites through a cave hole, transforming it into a mesmerizing window to this ancient wonder.
