Arkadia (Greek: Αρκαδία) is one of the regional units of Greece. It is part of the administrative region of Peloponnese. It is situated in the central and eastern part of the Peloponnese peninsula.
It takes its name from the mythological character Arkas. In Greek mythology, it was the home of the god Pan. In European Renaissance arts, Arkadia was celebrated as an unspoiled, harmonious wilderness.
The climate consists of hot summers and mild winters in the eastern part, the southern part, the low lying areas and the central area at altitudes lower than 1,000 m. The area primarily receives rain during fall and winter months in the rest of Arkadia. Winter snow occurs commonly in the mountainous areas for much of the west and the northern part, the Taygetus area and the Mainalon mountain.
The southwest of the Tripoli basin formerly consisted of wetlands which have now been drained and converted to farmland.
Tripoli has a transitional mediterranean/continental climate with hot dry summers and cold winters.
The picture was taken in the beautiful Tripoli valley and the trees showing are wild pear trees called "apidies" in Greek.
They flourish late February or early March and it is nice to see while there is still snow up in the mountains!

stasera sei molto romantica con questa bella immagina che prelude alla primavera , a prati ricchi di fiori e ad alberi vestiti di bianco.
Mi piace moltissimo per i colori delicati, per le deboli tracce dei carri nel prati e per i cielo dai colori delicati.
Una composizione ricca di fascino per un augurio di una prossima primavera.
Ciao e buona notte

non vedo l'ora di vedere tutte queste belle cose.
Anche oggi è piovuto tutto il giorno, molto freddo e la primacera sembra lontana, meno male che guardando foto come questa, il morale migliora.

Beautiful feel to the shot, very peaceful and can imagine walking through there. Love the light too with good contrast to trees, detail and composition makes this simple and relaxing image. Well done, TFS.

This is a very beautiful spring picture: colourful wild flowers everywhere and trees with blossoms. And it was February when you took the picture! Here we will still have to wait for several weeks for such sights.
A very pleasant view with a good DOF.
Best regards, Paul

I had to check the date of this beautiful capture. Not this year, but very similar in time. A marvellous springtime picture with more than pleasant colours, a very beautiful landscape and a superbly composed picture. Excellent!

Yet another very similar scenery to Israel, Eleni, nature doe's show beautifully through the rows of trees.
Mild light and a bit of a mist on far, but not such a disruptive element.
Have a nice week ahead,

Πρώτον αν ποτέ έρθεις Θεσσαλονίκη και Χαλκιδική θα είναι χαρά μου να συναντηθούμε και να σε ξεναγήσω. Δεύτερον οδεύουμε προς την άνοιξη και εσύ μας εντυπωσιάζεις με τα πολύχρωμα τοπία σου. Ανθισμένες αμυγδαλιές, κόκκινες παπαρούνες και ένας υπέροχος ουρανός τι άλλο να θέλουμε?.
danos (73896) 2013-02-25 6:45
Ελένη γεια σου,
όμορφη παρουσίαση των ανθισμένων αμυγδαλιών που πραγματικά είναι οι πρώτες που μας λένε για τον ερχομό της Άνοιξης.Εξαιρετικό το φως όπως και η ομορφιά του τοπίου.

μια πολύ όμορφη εικόνα της φύσης που αρχίζει να ζωντανεύει μετά τη νάρκη του χειμώνα. Αμέσως δημιουργεί μια αίσθηση χαράς και αισιοδοξίας. Το βάθος είναι εξαιρετικό και το μονοπάτι δημιουργεί μια έντονη επιθυμία να το ακολουθήσουμε και να βρεθούμε ανάμεσα στα χρώματα και τα αρώματα της φύσης. Το φως και τα χρώματα είναι θαυμάσια. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό βράδυ,

What a beautiful scenery! It truly looks like mythical Arkadia. Incredible to see this taken at the beginning of February.

I was seeing your comment to the photo taken in Madeira Island. I was inside a boat for seeing this side of shore. I could see lifts in the vertical position going from the beach up to the hotels. Indeed the houses on the cliff have a formidable down view. But I didn`t go there when rode by the island. Anyway see in google the island called Porto Santo. It is another small island I ever like to go. (The best hotel is inserted in the Pestana chain). Next May I will there. Concerned to the pear field in this beautiful dale have all the trees in blossom. I think it is a life I should like looking after trees. In our agriculture seems young people understood they have their future in the abandoned lands. Even so the agricultures needed much more support. The television have shown a couple with academic formation that left their jobs in the city to dedicate in a property they own. I am trying to say that life is more healtful than to be in offices all day or in factories. I have some friends in Phillipines showing a life I envy so much. But I followed other directions. At least my country has one thing I like sun and beaches. Well I am longing in the comment! But I like to be with you communicating. Warm regards. Tomi
