eastern Magnesia, Greece
Pelion or Pelium (Greek: Πήλιο Pilio, Ancient/Katharevousa: Πήλιον) is a mountain at the southeastern part of Thessaly in central Greece, forming a hook-like peninsula between the Pagasetic Gulf and the Aegean Sea. The GR-38 runs in the southern portion of the peninsula and the GR-38A runs in the middle.
In Greek mythology, Mount Pelion (which took its name from the mythical king Peleus, father of Achilles) was the homeland of Chiron the Centaur, tutor of many ancient Greek heroes, such as Jason, Achilles, Theseus and Heracles. It was in Mount Pelion, near Chiron's cave, that the marriage of Thetis and Peleus took place. The uninvited goddess Eris, to take revenge for having been kept outside the party, brought a golden apple with the inscription "To the Fairest". The dispute that then arose between the goddesses Hera, Aphrodite and Athene resulted in events leading to the Trojan War. When the giants Otus and Ephialtes attempted to storm Olympus, they piled Mount Pelion upon Mount Ossa.

Fantastic and beautiful image, with the winter landscape, ideal environment is transmitted cold and bleak time with the snow and light fog effect.
Beautiful contrast of all these trunks and branches of trees, which stand on the white snow, a good graphics which also contribute to the composition.
Good management of the brightness and sharpness.

Magnifique paysage de neige bien d'actualité de ce temps-ci. Ici c'était hier la tempête avec 20cm de neige. la rangée d'arbres enneigés crée un bel effet et beau contraste avec les troncs. Excellente composition et bon rendu de la neige.
Toutes mes félicitations et bonne soirée,

è una foto a colori, come lasci scritto nella Photo information o è un bianco e nero?
Solitamente neve e nebbia tendono ad alterare i colori facendo sembrare in bianco e nero anche una foto a colori, ma qui i tronchi grigi non possono appartenere a una foto a colori.
Resta comunque piacevole il risultato finale, indipendentemente dal colore o dal bianco e nero.

very beautiful the snow and the hues of the composition mixed with the graphism created by the nude trees. Nice job.

Looks like you're enjoying the snow as we do. This year we're having one of the most snowy winters for the decades. Regarding your shot, it is really fantastic. B&W is the right choice. Thanks for the share. Best Wishes,

a precious winter scene in this simple and powerful composition.
I like the cold atmosphere of the forest covered by the snow, and the phantasmagoric effect of the trees in the middle of the whole whiteness.
The image seems in B&W, and it gives a great character and a good dramatic level to the photo.
Excellent work, my friend.
