I bet that for most of you this far from "typical" greek landscape. But, as I have written many times in the last 2,5 years that I am a member of TE, there is a diferent face of Greece, far from the sea, sun, sand, far from the islands, the face of the mainland, the mountainous Greece, a place worth to be visited all around the year. Maybe it's about time that Greece becomes a winter destinations, and I hope that the photos from LAKE PLASTIRAS could be tempting.
Other regions of Greece worth to be visited during autumn, winter or spring:
And many, many more...

you're right... this is an amazing landscape!
A wonderful light and warm colours...
A shot in the best TE spirit, as your note explains!!!!
PaulVDV (29199) 2008-10-08 11:25
You're right, I would never have guessed that this is a Greek landscape. That's the advange TE offers us. We see pictures of places we will usually not find elsewhere.
Your composition is very good and the colours are brilliant.
Autumn colours at the end of september in Greece ? Also knew to me.
Best regards, Paul

You have some amazing light, colour, and patterns here. Not the typical Greek, no.
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2008-10-08 15:14
Pues no, para nada. Le falta casas blancas y la inmensidad del mar por detrás. Eso si, sigue siendo una muy bonita foto claro!
molla (7129) 2008-10-08 15:16
this is the most abstract image of the lake in the series with mild warm colors that shows that the fall have coming even to this part of Europe, I like the low water that makes the shore almost floating out on this green lead water surface and as usual you showing up the unknown beauty of Hellas or at least unknown for the most of us.
and that's the point with TE to show there's more then San Torini (yes it is very pretty but..)
batalay (38951) 2008-10-08 20:10
Hello dear Hercules,
Once again you have shown that you are both a great travel photographer and essayist, but also very good at informing your many admirers in TE of the less well known aspects of Greece, in short a very good diplomat of Greece.
delic (6735) 2008-10-08 22:57
Indeed Hercules, you have been showing us the tremendous diversity of the Greek landscape. This one is wonderful with the contrasting colors and the diagonal body of water. Regards,

OOHHH !!!It's realy beautiful.All things are very good.
Thank you for comments
delkoo (68) 2008-10-09 2:29
I would never have guess that this photo is from Greece, it looks like canada.....
You show us that your country is really diversified, rich in different landscape.

Excelente... pero déjame decir que veo la foto desde otro ordenador y me preocupan los colores (espero que sea por el monitor, porque sino todos mis posprocesados a tirar a la basura).
Por cierto, un fuerte saludo desde Burgos.
Gerrit (52095) 2008-10-09 10:13
no but a beautiful landscape indeed.
I like the reddish beaches and the toucj of AUTUMN COLORS IN THE TREES.
A beautiful photo.
pboehringer (770) 2008-10-09 13:19
probably notthetypicalgreeklandscape shot for our stereotypic imagination of what Greece is to be. BUT, I can tell you that the image is a typicalcretenselandscape. The composition with the tight frame and delivering just the essence with strong stauration, contrast and colors is typical for your gallery. Nicely done!
stelli (2993) 2008-10-09 14:37
Amazing colors and framing! It does look greek to me! :) Thank you for sharing! ΦΙΛΙΚΑ Στέλλα

Standing on the best pov and the landscape so beautiful, i like it especially the contrast colours and the sharpness. Nice shot Hercules...

What's a beautiful photo you got here. I love the colors, and especially the place you took this. A beautiful world out there. Well done. Sothy
mark_mk (266) 2008-10-10 9:17
it`s a great shot! Here the light is very important, soft and warm, jsut how I like it! Your composition is great and even without a sky wonderful. Nice sharpness and excellent bird eye POV. Simply great, outstanding shot!

Geia sou Hrakli,
The red color of the edges of the lake is fantastic. I like looking at this ribbon which takes place by waving as a snake. Some trees begin to be tinged with autumn colors, the plays of the shadows and the light intensified by the relief are very beautiful.
TGULUMSER (13252) 2008-10-11 9:26
This is an incredible view, very beautiful. Colors are very impressive,
kiks (12643) 2008-10-11 10:29
Hi Hercules, i realy like this natural but still strong colors. LOvely the round shapes of the shore.

une vue plus rapprochée des bords du lac qui donne une photo magnifique ou l'on voit que l'automne arrive aussi en grèce beau travail

γεια σου φίλε Ηρακλή,η λίμνη προσφέρει πολύ ξεχωριστές λήψης κι εσύ ξέρεις να τις εκμεταλευτεις με τον πιο ωραιο τρόπο ,εδώ η θέα ειναι υπέροχη και η φυση δειχνει ανέγγιχτη !

Hello Hercules, so good crop. Also you caugth nice light condition. Especially nice is the coast, really cute orange hue, tfs.
ElAprendiz (30) 2008-10-12 5:25
Observo los tonos rojizos algo saturados, no se si es mi parecer. Pero la composición con esas formas costeras es extraordinaria. Gran punto de vista y excelente encuadre.
Kielia (24077) 2008-10-12 10:36
thanks for sharing this fascinating lake with such an amazing light shining on the landscape! The colours are almost surrealistic. Great work!

Je note que c'est un très bon point de vue dominant.
