Varlaam and Rousanou Monasteries, Meteora, Greece

One of the classic viewpoints, just below the Great Meteora Monastery, looking down past Varlaam Monastery to the Rousanou Monastery.

 

 

You always dream of taking photos with mist swirling around - all I can say is that the photo makes it look a lot nicer than it was in real life - the mist and rain dropping down, and the monasteries soon to be obscured by the clouds. Give me sun and blue sky any day. Thankfully I was staying two days, and the second day, the mist lifted and I was able to see more of the monasteries.
