Just returned from a wonderful week in mountainous northern Greece. Zagorochoria (Zagori) to be more precise. This is my first time there and certainly not the last. I would highly recommend to anyone who has not been yet, just warn that it is addictive. Now the real work of sorting and editing begins.

It's the other kind of Greece. The views, the climate, the culture, the vegetation, the food, are all so different from The well known Mediterranean Greece, that of the islands and beaches. The nature here is wild. The roads are steep and narrow and the endless curves lead to magical tiny villages. Only 3,700 residents live in 46 villages in this area, an average of about 80 residents per village. Plenty of water, streams, waterfalls and the tranquility which is so easy to get used to, and so difficult to wean off. It's a photographer's heaven. And yes, the beer is incredibly cheap too...

This photo of a lonly tree in the middle of the Viodomatis River was taken near Papingo Bridge, on the way from the small village of Aristi to the even smaller village Papingo. During our stay in the area I used to walk here almost every morning and take some photos just after sunrise. There are so many composition opportunities here that I feel I could spend weeks here without getting bored. Maybe I should move there.
