I Love This Photo - Elatochori Forest, Pieria Mountains



This photo was taken on Monday, March 25th 2013 in the beautiful forest of Elatochori at Pieria Mountains, 1 hour car drive from Thessaloniki and some km north of the famous Olympus Mountain, the homeland of the Ancient Greek Gods. I was attracted by a persistent late morning fog spread out across the forest, the silhouettes of these giant old trees and the thick brown carpet of fallen leaves on my feet. I chose a rather low angle to shoot and capture the entire sense of that moment. Photographer's Website
