360° mountain panorama from the summit of Pachnes - 8th July 2007
The summit of Madaki seen from Pachnes
360° panorama from the summit of Pachnes
The top photo is just an excuse to show the bottom image. Yesterday was an exceptionally clear day in the White Mountains and I was able to get clear photos and create a full circle panorama. Click on the picture to enlarge and if you want a really large one you can also open this one.
And now a guide to what you are seeing: Open the panorama and right in the center you will find Madaki (picture here at the top). This is looking straight north from the summit of Pachnes.
From there and looking towards the left:
You can distinguish the small island of Theodorou outside of Agia Marina / Platanias
The peninsula of Rodopou (and Kolymbari)
Next is what I call the western summit of Pachnes
Then you can just about make out the peninsula of Gramvoussa
After this you are looking towards the west and see the hills of the region of Selino
The mountain with the very light area on its south-western flank is Gingilos, just above the plateau of Omalos
Then Volakias and the western cliffs of the gorge of Samaria
The summit in the foreground is part of the main summit of Pachnes
Just beyond the stone shelter the summit of Zaranokefala followed by an unnamed summit. Then to the far left of the image, due south you can distinguish the islands of Gavopoula and Gavdos.
Now go back to the central part of the panorama and let's move to the right:
Just beyond Madaki is a mountain called Ornio. Beyond this you can see Spathi (it's mainly hidden by Ornio)
To the right of Madaki is Svourikti and to its right and further behind (north) Agia Pnevma.
Further right, I don't know the name of the mountain in the foreground (if it even has one) but the three conical peaks behind and to the right are: Mesa Soros and behind it slightly to its right Grias Soros and further right Askyfiotiko Soros.
Further to the right and you are already looking east and can see in the foreground Sternes then behind and slightly to its right the summits of Fanari and Kastro.
Slghtly further to the right you see the ridge of Kakovoli and just above it but far to the east Psiloritiis.
After the sea (all the way down to Matala) you see the summits of Trohari then Theodori and finally straight to the south you get to the island of Gavdos.
