Photographer's Note

Sunset at Meteora. A UNESCO world heritage site, normally out of the tourist tracks in Greece. It is located in northern Greece, close to the Pindos Mountains, and is truly a breathtaking place. On the top of the sandstone pillars, six monasteries stand, most of them can be visited. The first hermits moved into the caves in the cliffs in the 9th century; the caves are still visible.
