Sunset in Ioannina (Kyra Frosini)

Ioannina is as city surrounded by mountains and thus the burning sky of a sunset is a quite rare phenomenon (due to high altitude and tall mountains). From July to November the sun is setting to that point of the (close in proximity) horizon, that the most mountains are not that tall, or they just too far away. That way, the sun can go low enough to the horizon without be covered by the mountains and eventually create that beautiful effect of the light being refracted into our atmosphere. In this case... this is what happens here.. one of the rare sunset of the "gloomy" city of Ioannina.


naah... it is not that gloomy... I am just used of endless summer and I can't deal with winter or fall...
