Tonights sunset, looking out towards Mount Olympus.
Traditionally regarded as the heavenly abode of the Greek gods and the site of the throne of Zeus, Olympus seems to have originally existed as an idealized mountain that only later came to be associated with a specific peak. The early epics, the Illiad and the Odyssey (composed by Homer around 700BC) offer little information regarding the geographic location of the heavenly mountain and there are several peaks in Greece, Turkey and Cyprus that bear the name Olympus. The most favored mythological choice is the tallest mountain range in Greece, the Olympus massif, 100 kilometers southwest of the city of Thessaloniki in northern Greece.

Fine sunset shot. Love to see only a small touch of the actual disc of the sun. Almost disappearing behind the mountains. Superb streaks in the sky. Nice foreground layers and very fine colours. You can think of a more panoramic crop, wait..I'll show it in a simple WS. Greetings.
