50cm higher

The 3th of March is Bulgaria's Day of Liberation.
1878 - Bulgaria regains its independence from Ottoman Empire according to the Treaty of San Stefano, that marks the revival of the Bulgarian State, submerged under Ottoman rule since the end of 14th century. Ceremonies, celebrating the national holiday, are traditionally held throughout the country, particularly solemn in towns and cities boasting victorious battles for Russian and Bulgarian soldiers in the 1877-1878 liberation war.
This people are trying to be higher for having better view to the ceremony yesterday evening on the place between the Parlament and the Tsar Osvoboditel Monument.

That's a great photo in terms of colour. light and composition! The people looking at something that we can't see makes it completely eerie! Fantastic!
