Makrinitsa (Greek: Μακρινίτσα), nicknamed "balcony of Mt. Pelion," is a village and a former community in Magnesia, Thessaly, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Volos, of which it is a municipal unit. It is situated in the northwestern part of the Pelion mountains, 6 km northeast of Volos. One of the most characteristic traditional settlements, full of mansions and houses that look like hanging ornaments on the green mountain side. One of the traditional coffee houses is decorated with a fresco by the famous Greek painter Theofilos. The picturesque cobbled paths of Makrinitsa are scattered with traditional water fountains. Makrinitsa is a popular tourist destination, especially during the winter.

Hi Costantino, A nice view of this village in between the mountains. The white colour of these houses make the BG mountains look like they are covered with snow.
Great perspective with nice natural colours. Thank for sharing

Lovely shot Costantino of a village bathe din sunlight and merging with the topography as if the mountains gave it birth. Sounds like the sort of place I would like to visit for a few days and enjoy the ambiance. Regards. Klaudio.

not the easiest location to live for the inhabitants,but how beautiful and picturesque for photographers.
Magnificent capture of this place.Very nice combination and balance between the architecture and nature.
Also the light has huge influence for the success of this composition.

This is an interesting and very attractive view of the white village climbing the steep hillsides. I can't really see where the village merges with the white rocks, but obviously the houses must have been built of local material taken from these mountains.

very unusual - the houses blend with the white rocks to the point that it is hard to tell them apart in the background. I like it a lot! Very good POV and colors enriched by the warm sun. Well proportioned composition and good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the mansions and houses standing on the green mountain side. I looks like to hold the characteristic traditional style with white outer wall and many windows. And, these are melting into the geographical feature with rich nature and valley.

The houses look organic, as if they're growing out of the hillside. That line of shadow across the frame becomes an important compositional feature. Good work.
