[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The chestnuts of Pelion , are matured and they don't need the shucks.
Some info from Wikipedia:
Pelion (Lat: 3926? N 02303? E) is a mountain at the southeastern part of Thessaly in central Greece, forming a hook-like peninsula between the Pagasetic Gulf and the Aegean Sea.

In Greek mythology, Mountain Pelion (which took its name from the mythical king Peleus, father of Achilles) was the homeland of Chiron the Centaur, tutor of many ancient Greek heroes, such as Jason, Achilles, Theseus and Heracles. Pelion is also a peninsula.

Today, Mt. Pelion is part of the prefecture of Magnesia (capital city: Volos) and embraces 24 villages (most significant: Portaria, Makrinitsa, Milies, Tsangarada, Zagora, Argalasti etc.)

Great shot Ioannis. Very good sharpness, color, detail and exposure. I might've moved in a bit closer to show the subject in greater detail with that 150mm. Well done & Happy Halloween.
