Golden autumn in Ukraine

In Ukraine, it is the midst of the so-called “golden autumn” now. It is a relatively short time of the year when the trees already have a characteristic yellow-red autumn color and the weather is still sunny and clear. A great time for landscape photography!

The salt desert near Odessa

Kuyal’nitsky estuary (liman) is an estuary located about 3 km to the north-west of the Black Sea coast (Odessa Bay), 5 km from Odessa. It is separated from the sea by three kilometers of a sand spit.

The lowest point of Ukraine (minus 5 meters above sea level) is located in this area. In the times of the Russian Empire, salt was mined here, and, during the Soviet era, this place was used as an all-Union health resort.
