I have plans for this weekend to go to Lakatnik, but early morning Krassy call me with question – Do you want small trip to Nochevo for one day? Last time in this area with Alex, we walk around without clear idea where we are, and I been sure that there is more to see. And when they come to pick me I pack my backpack. During shooting “Light and cult” movie we find a few places where a big part of rock collapse with niches on it – near Womb cave below a Borovitza, at the Arch of Oreshari and in Nochevo. And our goal now was to shoot these fallen rocks with drone.
When we arrive in village, weather was little cloudy, and that may fall drone fly. We go to rocks and soon arrive to “sharapana” (winemaking stones – photo above). I seen a lot, but this is very preserved, complex and detailed. And little after starts rocks with hiches. Krassy and Alex stop to shoot rock with cave and niches.
After that Krassy show as and “secret path in rock”.
We see far rocks where we go with Alex and I start realize how big is this place. One by one rocks with niches on it uncover to as, including big group rocks on other side of gully. On next hills you may see even Angel Voivoda village and rocks. Here is huge and full with artifacts, like Belintash… but much interesting.
Soon we find rock with “fallen” niches. It’s interesting that rock is fall “on back” and niches are contrariwise. Apparently piece of rock has rolled a lot.
We make some footage and time progress, so we go back to car. A little down I stop to see back for last and rock with straight line take my attention. We back and find second rock with niches fall on ground. Here two thing was interesting – first – a lot of them was in different stage of progress and second for first time we see niches on which somebody makes some measures.
Sun soon will set and we take a way back to Sofia. Unfortunately we did not have time for other places with fallen rocks. A little before road Asenovgrad – Chernoochene we see Thracian valley with fog.
On way back Krassy wants to see a meadow with snowdrops not so far from Haskovo and we take this direction. Become dark and we not find a meadow, but find a nice spot for barbecue and even camping next to Haskovo. A place that I certainly will use on next time when come around with bike…
