Meteora

Much-photographed places like Meteora always throw up a challenge - how can I possibly offer any new perspectives? Plus weather wasn't ideal. Anyway, enough excuses ...

St Nicholas. I've published this one before but can't resist going again in this context.

And can't resist one more look at Rousanou, which I found the most intriguing, with its dark and forbidding interiors and artworks and its integration with the rock face. It's also where I dropped my lens off a cliff! (As previously reported on these pages)

It’s in the central-north of Greece. You’re right, it’s magical and unique.

So beautiful, John. It doesn't matter how often Meteor  is photographed, it's such an unique and stunning place, that every photo is justified and yours are fantastic!

Never been there, but the views in #5 and #8 are for me the most interesting. More interesting however is #6. I've seen quite a lot of these monasteries (they are, as you say, much photographed), but for some reason I've never seen this "detail".
