Here in Greece, when something or someone is very different to anything else, just say this:''As the fly in the milk.''
The same applies in this picture.
In a white background see the skier with the red jacket.
Excellent and strong opposition.
Do you all of you well and as you can without stress.

So much for the Mediteranean climate?!
Good juxtaposition between the skier and the fading light of the snowbound trees, into the winter depths.
Thanks for sharing,
PS: Here in northern California we are having our worst winter storms in a decade. In my old age I will wait for a clearing and the sun before venturing and cross country skiing into the Sierra Nevada. They predict over ten feet of snow from the current storm.

A white world we're not used to see from Greece, the quality is okay for a scanned picture, the person has a nice contrasting red jacket but should be more on the right
have a nice day JY

Another "white" beautiful photo.
Here in Portugal we had snow everywhere 2 weeks ago!
But that´s not normal!
I like the contrast bertween the red and the snow.
Have a nice weekend!

beautiful composition, a red dot in this high-contrast white total, fun phrase,
PS: We have a funny expression on the subject of milk, invented by one of our greatest man comic Coluche, who said "I'm like sugar in milk, the more you seek me, unless you find me!"

Good morning, Dimitris,
A funny name for your shot, but fitting, for sure (and useful, this is my first idiom in Greek, thank you! is it σαν η μύγα στο γάλα ?).
This is a nice winter capture, I like how even the bushes are coated with snow. The composition and the placement of the red accent are great.
TFS and have a nice weekend!

I'm not sure how often Greece gets snow like this, but i'm sure its not a common thing!
Its great to see you were able to get out and enjoy some of the snow and have some fun.
i like the red contrasting the white, nicely taken
Have a great w/e
