Photographer's Note

Last week I stayed for a few days in Pelion. It was my second visit to this beautiful region. Last year, I moved mainly in the northern part, this time I moved mainly around Central Pelion. So, now, I have left only the southern part, which hopefully I will visit around late spring, early summer.

The region is mostly mountainous, with beautiful forests, exceptional nature, and some of the most beautiful villages of Greece, with excellent traditional architecture. Pelion has also some wonderful "exits" to the sea, both on the east side (Aegean) and south side (Pagasitikos Gulf).

The weather during my stay was very bad, it kept raining and snowing for days, not to mention the fog, but that helped me take some "diferent" photos. Here you can see a photo from Kato Gatzea a seaside village in the Pagasitikos Gulf, that becomes rather melancholic in winter, but still beautiful.

PS. I would like to apologize to some friends from Volos and Almyros (they know who they are), because I didn't inform them about my visit to the region. It was a sudden, out of schedule, visit. I thought that I could find the time after finishing with my job, but the afwul weather, made me work from early morning till night, under very dificult conditions, so when I went back to my hotel I was "dead meat". Not to mention that I had my wife with me! Now, if that's not a good excuse, then what? Anyway, I hope I'll meet them when I return for Southern Pelion.
