Kopaida plains

This was shot at the area of the drained Kopaida lake in central Greece.

 

The lake was drained between 1880 and 1930 to give around 240.000 acres of land for cultivation and save the locals from malaria.

 

Yet sometimes under heavy rains, some small parts of the plain get flooded with quite spectacular results at least for us photographers...
