A pond on the plateau of Omalos

 

I know that there are a few people eagerly awaiting the first snow pictures of the year. This winter has been exceptionally dry and warm so far but it turned cold with rain a couple of days ago and these are the results in the mountains: the top photo is taken about 200 or 300m above Xyloskla (the entrance to the gorge of Samaria). It took me a little while to get there because the snow was almost waist deep in places and very powdery so not easy walking at all.
The face of Gingilos is to the right of the picture. Pachnes and Zaranokefala are right behind the dead cypress.

The second picture is a little more unusual (at least for me) in showing the reflection of the hills in the partly frozen pond located along Seliniotiko Giros (to the South of the plateau of Omalos).

I have a few more snow pictures in store for tomorrow and the follwing days.
