Photographer's Note

The Nestos Narrows (Aesthetic Forest).
The Nestos River creates a natural border between Macedonia and Thracemeeting the Thracian Sea just south of Chrysoupoli where an important wetland is created. About midway on its course between Stavroupoli and Toxotes is the Nestos Narrows, a beautiful river valley flanked by steep rocky cliffs and rich vegetation.
Along the banks of the meandering river, one can see a great variety of deciduous trees, encircled by ivy and fragrant clematis; and walking along the path hewn out of the rocky slopes, one may be lucky enough to see the white apparition of a heron flying or standing on the sandy islets deposited by the river.
