In the 1000 years o history of the Athonian city many types of religious asceticism were formed and practiced. Nowadays the following still exist: communal asceticism, in the twenty big monasteries, skites, cells, and very few hermits. Until recently the institution of idiorrythmia was still practiced in 1992 though the last idiorythmo monastery-Pantokratoros Monastery- became communal. See in the pictures the cells of nuns from Monastery Iviron. From the exterior appearance they resemble [ftochika], frugally and simply, as is generally speaking also their life. Appear in the background the Mountain Athos and certain buildings of his internal Monastery that you saw in yesterday's my picture.

A very attractive photo that gives a nice impression of the town. The colours are very pleasant and natural and are nicely brought out by the sunlight. The composition is also very good. Good photo work!

Olá Georgios, interesting place shown in TE only by your 3 posts, which is a surprise because it seems quite beautiful town. This FG is quite original, but I think I would go for the more normal view in WS2 with its lovely long yellow facade contrasting with the green forest. Nice try here, though.

Geia Sou Georgios,
nice composition here using a great point of view to create depth and balance. Excellent image with clarity, awesome colours and much details in it. Great, full of calmness atmosphere given by these very old and fascinating houses.
All the best.

Very lovely composition of this pov to show such good sharpness and high contrast details. I like the bright light to bring out the wall texture and the depth.

Γεια σου Γιώργο, πανέμορφη εικόνα με εξαιρετικά χρώματα και υπέροχο φως. Οι αντανακλάσεις στα νερά μπροστά προσθέτουν στην σύνθεση και το πεζούλι που ξεκινάει από την κάτω αριστερά γωνία δημιουργεί προοπτική. Χαιρετώ,
