Photographer's Note

This is mountain Dirfis, photographed from the location of Loutsa, a small village near.

Mt Dirfis is the most high mountain at Evia island and it's height is 1743 (Thanks Vagelis for the tip) meters. The most days of the year is covered with snow and at it's granite peak you can see only black firs.

At the foot of this mountain, you can find beautiful small villages full of firs and plane trees, great small rivers of crystal cold water and excellent local food. Loutsa, Steni (=narrow in Greek), Metohi are some of them.

Dirfis is visible from Chalkis, my hometown and from the most of the wide area of Viotia and of course Evia. From the top of it, you can see almost all Greece from Agion Oros to Crete and Dodekanisa islands.

These villages and locations are only 1 1/2 hour from Athens and there great opportunities for small excurtions.

I took this photo from a height of 800m to 1000m :). That's why the peak you can see seems to be so "low" :)

Tech info: This photo is from a RAW file.
