Oui la passion est importaant dans la vie. Ca anime la vie, lui donne un sens.
Joli cadrage et belle montée nuageuse.

a great picture from the borderline between the blue sky and the fog.
Best part is the lonely tree on top of the needle.

Misty and low cloudiness care for a wonderful composition.
Lovely vertical frame, real colours too.
I can enjoy of this wonderful picture
Very well done, TFS.

It's a very effective invitation to the practice of mountaineering. The image is magical, with those scarps decorated with the green bushes or trees lit by the sun while immersed in the fog.

Άδειοι μου τόποι, όνειρα,
κόκκοι της άμμου, απόνερα.
Όσοι κοιμούνται γίνονται
παιδιά και παραδίνονται.
Πάνω σε βλέφαρα κλειστά
του χρόνου ο άνεμος λυσσομανά.

Γεια σου Θανάση, απίθανη, χάνεται η ματιά μέσα στα σύννεφα και τα βράχια επιβληκτικά υψώνονται στον ουρανό. Μαγική εικόνα. Χαιρετώ φίλε,

gracious (20025) 2009-02-13 9:42
Great image with quality in the best pov here to enjoy the wonders of nature!
good sharpness with wonderful colours indeed
riclopes (35577) 2009-02-14 2:47
Wow, this is a spectacular view, Athanasios. I'm not a capricorn but love to climb to vertigo views. On the other way, my wife is a capricorn and hates highs ;-) The presence of the clouds surrounding us here only makes it more magical and exciting. Thanks for sharing the sense of being in the clouds.
feather (51130) 2009-02-14 7:00
I can only guess at the extreme POV you had to take this. I imagine you dangling from a rope with your camera in hand. ;D There is a wonderful atmosphere with the combination of low cloud and sunlight.
danyy (0) 2009-02-15 23:35
elle impressionne cette photo, cette chute verticale donne le vertige même si la brume cache un peu le fond. Ces nuages ressortent très bien grace aux couleurs fortes du ciel et des rocs.
Un format vertical qui joue bien.
portmanndominic (2400) 2009-02-16 1:08
Athanasio Geia sou
Nice vertical POV i'st a good idea to shot when the cloud and the mist are here ,good contrats and a piece of of mystery ....how meter above you ...
Yves-triga (5149) 2009-02-17 4:01
yes a very nice passion too.
A nice shoot.
zmey (7335) 2009-02-17 7:00
amazing sight, wish i was there right now!...
this (scenes like this one) probably is one of the reasons behind ancient greek myths...
delic (6735) 2009-02-18 16:06
Dramatic landscape reminding me of the rocks in Meteora. The fog enhance the sense of wildness. Excellent composition. Regards,
patdeph (35748) 2009-02-18 22:48
I like very much how the mountains are emerging from the mist,and how splendid blue of the sky is above the mist!The vertical frming is the best for this picture,to enhance the impressive slopes of the rocks!Wonderful!
jlbrthnn (79791) 2009-02-19 1:47
Superb! The steep mountain on the one hand is spectacular, and on the other hand is particularly put in beauty by the fog. The small tree on the piton of right-hand side is pleasant. If the color of the sky is added, clearness, framing, one has a excellent image. Cheer!
Have a nice day
vinicio (23415) 2009-02-19 4:30
Amazing atmosphere in this image, whit the fog that catch the panorama and the trees and these rock "towers" apearing from it, well seen and well done, compliments.
Fis2 (82342) 2009-02-19 12:13

A superb high pov, from this misty mountain crag! Good sharpness and a superb view with the intense blue sky contrasting well against the pale yellow ochre rocks. Tfs!

Belle et mystérieuse ambiance
plimrn (21344) 2009-02-24 20:28
A magical composition of steep rocks, misty clouds and blue sky, all captured with nice color and detail. Looks like a perfect place for a Capricorn
fulvio52 (8314) 2009-02-25 2:33
This must be an incredible region, one I sure would love to visit one day. And I definitely agree with you : passion for mountaineering has many benefits... Just look at this : terrific perspective and atmosphere, and what an amazing view! Have a good day, my friend. I'll be seeing you.
alainh (35579) 2009-02-25 22:06
fabulous moment. the perfect timing to have the best atmosphere. just the good nivel of clouds. it's another planet ! the trees give us the perspective. splendid picture Athanasios
Angshu (54895) 2009-02-25 22:19
Wow! Only when you go to the top, would you be blessed with such awesome views. Love how the rock structures seem to emerge from the clouds, making it so mysterious. Fine work!
dip (23528) 2009-02-26 5:45
Edo Thanasi ta logia periteuoun,apla fantastiki!
jafadabret (56501) 2009-02-26 8:57
La photo est superbe. J'aime cette brume qui s'accroche encore aux flancs des rochers alors que le ciel devient bleu.
bakes888 (18499) 2009-02-26 22:49
Hi Athanasios. Although this is stunning I’m guessing it’s not quite the same as being there, unfortunately for us. Beautifully captured, you have handled the light well and have great colours also. Well composed and thanks for sharing.
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2009-02-27 5:03
Amazing view at the steep rocks. Great light and mood created by the fog.
Have a nice day.
cam (9041) 2009-02-28 11:20
Hope you do not have a fear of height.I think not.
What a view and the clouds are giving a good atmosphere or mysterious mood.
A magical compo.and impressive.
Feel like I am on another world.
Have a good WE
jrj (34841) 2009-03-02 2:22
Almost a mystic feel in this setting A. The drifting fog ads some special effect to the scenery. Nice work, well taken.
adores (34734) 2009-03-03 15:46
I really like this atmosphere, the rocks surrounded by the clouds, the little trees at the top. Well framed, with very good colours!It must have been really hard to reach the top:)!
pboehringer (770) 2009-03-05 8:26
I completely agree with you that mountaineering has many benefits. One of the most famous american landscape photographers in the post-Ansel-Adams era was the late Galen Rowell. He was a montaineer himself and what he got through his passion to go high is incredible of beautiful.
Staying up there at the top and seeing how the clouds play around the peaks and embrace the walls is a fantastic thing. The shot shows exactly that. The only thing that I miss is a person standing at the top of the isolated peak to the right. Yeah, I know, that would be a nice dream. :-)
elihesamian (26149) 2009-03-05 10:02
a breathtaking situation !
amazing foggy condition you had.
a nice sky with a blue touch and the rock with hard touch in contrast you reached in the frame.
well captured with a fine details,nicely composed,too,like it.
quillo (11850) 2009-03-06 8:09
An image with magic and mystery ....
they are sensations that the fog transmits
me between the mountains, the colors and the light
are very well, the POV from above gives him this delight of the sight of bird,
nirvana73 (0) 2009-03-06 13:37
i like clouds and blue sky
thanks for sharing
axiotea (21649) 2009-03-06 21:17
I wonder where you were standing ;)your pov is excellent to present us these mountains in a special atmosphere created by the luminosity /fog.
Regards from Cambodia

Γεια σου Αθανασιε,
Υπεροχη ληψη αποππνεουσα δεος και θαυμασμο.....
marietom (34607) 2009-03-08 10:52
magnifique, ce paysage tout en brume. La composition est superbe.
derek3755 (2341) 2009-03-10 5:24
Beautiful view and what a wondeful atmosphere with the mist swirling around the rocks.
tober (8797) 2009-03-11 4:44
Hello Athanasios, being surrounded by cotton-like clouds at the top of a mountain. I have never tasted this feeling, since I have no capacity, nor courage to climb up such altitudes :) But through your photo, I get the sense of this feeling. Really amazing.
albertz (2468) 2009-03-14 19:15
a breathtaking shot... nothing great in this world has never been accomplished without passion..
trekks (14348) 2009-03-17 1:55
At least for me, this really looks like Switzerland's nicou shots and you have shown the Greece has equally amazing landscape beauty to show the world. Very well captured with such a wonderful scenic view.
I fully agree with you about the passion of life for this one. I dont know if anyone else will like to dispute about the sea vs mountains.
ruisc_pt (10413) 2009-03-17 3:59
Fantastic scenario Athanasios
I like the moody fog and the light.
dvlazar (6644) 2009-03-29 19:28
Well this image has done well 4 you and with good reason! It's a marvellous atmospheric shot with dramatic landscape.
parbo (11092) 2009-04-13 17:07
This is so fantastic so mystical capture Dear Friend. I liked amazing blurry effect due to fog clouds and your excellent choice of vertical frame that allowed to include still available blue sky. Wonderful, congratulations. Have a nice new week. Ευθυμίες.
Silversnow (2319) 2009-04-22 20:09
Superb mountains indeed :D
Just the right amount is unveiled in this great composition, making us feel we are touching the end of the world, or the domain of the ancient gods on Olympus :)
Loic_bzh (7646) 2009-04-23 5:12
I just love that one. The mountain seems to hide out form the clouds... :)
sacavem (18610) 2009-04-30 3:33
Wow, a lovely work. Really an amazing and effective composition.Love this work.
artesia (959) 2009-06-22 7:03
Photography and Mountaineering indeed one package will benefit one and another.
Your picture tell us all..
Can I ask you? Did I see two climbers on that mega huge wall? Or is it just only my imagination?
levente (600) 2009-08-19 12:23
Breathtaking - truly amazing. It makes air tangible, palpable , with huge sense of space and depth.
sadeik (3268) 2010-01-06 10:38
Beautiful photo, I should come to Greece as your photos show a completely different aspect rather than the tourist beaches
PiotrF (4890) 2012-09-18 12:34
Very good colours and light
