A Morning in Meteora, Greece

Again a photo essay! I have taken so many pictures there and I want to share them with you here. I hope you are not bored with monastery photographs.

The morning of 29th Dec 2014 was spent clicking the glorious sights of Meteora. The sky exhibited huge contrasts in terms of color and brightness. At the east end it was blue and bright but the other end was dark and grey. Whatever the weather the Monasteries seemed to rule perched on the peaks! Photographers who did not want to miss the magic moment, the sunrise positioned themselves well at various locations.

(You can click on the pics to enlarge them.)

The westward sky that day, grey clouds threatening to rain any moment. St. Nikolaos Anapafsas Monastery.

The dead end? Motor-able road ended here  but there was a way for the trekkers.


This picture has 4 of the 6 monasteries. To your left bottom is the Roussanou Monastery, the one slightly above it with red roof is the St. Nikolaos Anapafsas Monastery, the topmost one is the Great Meteoron Monastery and the one to you right is the Varlaam Monastery.
