City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

This is a common site just when you get out of the city. Haystacks everywhere, prepared for the winter.

It’s a haystack of a dried summer grass, the cows will soon eat it and it’ll not be there any more – till next year. Now it gives us a nice picture =)

Wow! Those are really tall. I guess most hay you see in haystacks in the States are round...like they've been rolled up.

On dirait une hutte. Existe t-il une entrée secrete ?.

Looks rather more in tune with the landscape than the black platic bin-bags making silage that you see in the UK.

Hi Jazzy! Great shot...love the way you've captured the light...and yeah, that's a REALLY tall haystack! Does the top just fall down after the cows start munching away at the bottom? LOL! ;-)

Good to see the haystack so close. Do you live in the countryside? I have seen them round or square but not this shape.

That is a very cool haystack! Beats the heck out of the bales of the rolled ones around here!

Very nice shot BTW, the tonality and color is perfect.

In a way this reminds me of a Monet painting.

this is definitely unusual and I thought it was a house at first - maybe the cows can eat a door way and then the inside and wholla - you have a grass hut =)

olivier - hehe, you're funny man.

kris – these are made from normal grass from the fields, full of herbs and even flowers, in b&h it’s not common to roll them up, this is kinda normal way.

tanty - thank you.

ame – hehe..

felicia – no i don’t live in the countryside, but my parents have a weekend house not too far away (abut an hour) from the city on the countryside.

juggerpix – thank you

thank you all for stopping by =)
