After arriving at Pindos, my heart beats strong at the rhythms of nature, months have passed since my last visit, seasons have changed and the landscape has dressed in different "clothing", a deep breath and the tiredness of the long journey is long history! I am back at the land of my heart, the land where my soul and heart refused to come back with me back at summer.
It is morning, a cold, moisty and overcast morning, although the conditions sound harsh, the don't feel like that, my soul can only hear the sweet calling of Nature, as if I was enhanced by a Siren call! we make a stop before we start "rolling" downhill towards Vovousa, the landscape just hypnotizes our "tired" of cityscapes eyes.
It is overcast, but thats a blessing for us at this moment, the colors just pop in front of you, making you feel as this is a dreamland, they can't be compared to anything I have experienced up to today, and I thought I had seen autumn this years, a fool I was!
I was full of anxiety before our visit, I didn't know for sure we would be catching autumn colors or winter scenes, I was afraid the trees might had dropped their last red and yellow leafs which would turn the place into something totally different, (not that I mind a winterscape) it was this magic scene I was long waiting for to capture, and it was in front of my eyes!
Can I thank Nature? I don't know if she can hear my voice, after the "rappings" she has suffered in the name of humanity, but somewhere deep inside me I do wish she can hear me for the breathtaking pleasures she has offered to me, pleasures that even a God would enjoy!
