This is the Ravine of Enipevs (Mavrolongos). It's situated near Litochoro on the way to Olympus peak.

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Mount Olympus (Greek: Όλυμπος ; also transliterated as Ólympos, and on Greek maps, Óros Ólimbos) is the highest mountain in Greece, located on the border between Thessaly and Macedonia, about 100 km away from Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city. Mount Olympus has 52 peaks. The highest peak Mýtikas, meaning "nose", rises to 2,917 metres high (9,577 feet).
Mount Olympus is noted for its very rich flora with several endemic species.
In Greek mythology the mountain was regarded as the "home of the gods", specifically of the Twelve Olympians, the twelve principal gods of the Classical Greek and Hellenistic worlds.
Climbing Mount Olympus is a non-technical hike, except for the final section from Skala summit to Mitikas summit, which is YDS class 3 rock scramble. It is estimated that 10,000 people climb Mount Olympus each year, most of them reaching only the Skolio summit. Most climbs to Mount Olympus start from the town of Litochoro, which took the name City of Gods because of its location on the roots of the mountain. From there a road goes to Prionia, where the hike begins at the bottom of the mountain.
Litochoro (Greek, Modern: Λιτόχωρο, Ancient/Katharevousa Λιτόχωρον, older form: Litochoron) is a town and municipality located in the southern part of the prefecture of Pieria at the base of Mount Olympus. The town is about 90 km from Thessaloniki, on the western shore of the Thermaic Gulf. The first recorded mention of Litochoro is in an account of a visit by Saint Dionysus (Greek: Άγιος Διονύσιος) to Mount Olympus.[citation needed] The town is a popular destination for those wishing to climb Mount Olympus as almost all climbing routes begin to the southwest of the town.

The point of view is sending my eyes through the ravine toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. It is also allowing me to see the details and colors of the scenery. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Maciej,
beautiful view of the mountains. The details and clarity is well documented.
So pretty to witness such a lovely forest and mountains.


Hello Maciej,
I can see how much you appreciate and understand landscapes - not the easiest of subjects. This image just grabs me, pulls me in and keeps me there! I cannot get out and I do not want to get out. Looking at the composition, tones, gradation, hues, I just could not find anything to improve upon and your note is very useful. Excellent!!! Well done!!!
