Iron Gates are a series of locks on the Danube River on the Romania/ Serbia border that were built when the water was dammed to create hydro-electric power for the two countries. The level of the river changes by over 115 feet and these locks carry river cruise boats and cargo boats to the alternative levels. The first series opened in the 1970s and the second in the 1980s. Its take a few hours to do both and I made this time-lapse while travelling in Emerald Waterways Emerald Dawn River Cruise Ship from Bucharest in Romania to Budapest in Hungary.

  1. Gary, That made an interesting mix, brought the part of the trip back to me. At 55 seconds in there is a clip of a little over a second where I am walking with my camera and then cross the deck. I guess we were all taking shots of the gorge.

    Cheers
