Natural pool in Zagori

Hercules Milas

Agia Paraskevi, Athens, Greece

Artist's Description

Almost halfway between two of the most beautiful villages in famous Zagori region (Ioannina, Epirus, Greece), Megalo (“Big”) Papingo and Mikro (“Small”) Papingo, you can find a place of exceptional natural beauty. It is called by the locals “Kolymbithres” of “Ovires”.

It is a small gorge, crossed by a stream called Rogovo, that creates many small lakes and waterfalls. I hope that you can see in the background a wall and an open door. There is one more similar wall. What’s their utility? During the summer months the locals “close” these doors and create the most beautiful natural pools of the world!!! Just imagine, taking a swim in this beautiful place, surrounded by the most beautiful greek mountains!

TECHNICAL INFO
I lowered manually the ISO to 50, used a small aperture (f/22), a circular polarizer, an ND-4 (2 stop down) filter and a tripod for a long shutter speed (6 seconds). Focal length: 22 mm..
