Winter Is Here!

Mt. Penteli

“Nothing burns like the cold. But only for a while. Then it gets inside you and starts to fill you up, and after a while you don’t have the strength to fight it.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

FYI-I’m not a fan of ‘A Game of Thrones’, but I like the quote 🙂

Nature’s Tears/Τα Δακρυα της Φυσης


“All things share the same breath-the beast, the tree, the man…the air shares its spirit with all life it supports”. – Chief Seattle, Duwamish Tribe

Climate change is happening, humans are causing it, and I think this perhaps the most serious environmental issue facing us.” – Bill Nye (the Science guy)



Frosty Rose/ Παγωμενο Τριανταφυλλο


A ‘cool’ photo of a rose kissing snow (love this shade of pink) with a two layered background, rose stems and bokeh. I didn’t expect a good result from this shot.  Photography is magic 😉

Ένα τριαντάφυλλο που φιλάει το χιόνι. Λατρεύω αυτή τη σκιά του ροζ. Με δύο στρώματα φόντου,  τριαντάφυλλα και bokeh. Δεν περίμενα ένα καλό αποτέλεσμα από αυτό το πλάνο. Η φωτογραφία είναι μαγική 😉

Snow Capped Mountains/Χιονισμενα Βουνα

mtpentelitxtsnowcappedmountainsThe new year brought a new winter storm named ‘Telemachos’ (named after a character in Greek mythology) to Greece.  It snowed in the Attiki region of Greece for the first time in years. The rest of Greece is worse than Canada-yikes!  I wanted to make it up those mountains take some pictures, but the traffic is insane.

More ‘icy’ photos to come.

Ο Τηλεμαχος ηρθε και παγωσαμε!

Πιο ‘παγωμενες’ φωτογραφιες συντομα.


Winter Is Here/Ο χειμώνας είναι εδώ


Snow-capped mountains are not something most Athenians like to see. The next wave of snow is coming tonight and people are bracing themselves for the subzero temperatures.

Τα βουνά καλυμμένα με χιόνι δεν είναι κάτι που οι περισσότεροι Αθηναίοι ήθελαν να δουν. Το επόμενο κύμα χιονιού έρχεται απόψε και οι άνθρωποι προετοιμάζονται για τις υπό το μηδέν θερμοκρασίες .
