The old clock tower

Greece Epirus Zagorochoria
The old region of Zagorochoria, in Epirus, consists of many villages perched in very remote and very high mountainous parts of West Greece, with a rich historical past.They are famous for their architectural style of houses and roads. During the Ottoman occupation the majority of them enjoyed a certain degree of autonomy because of their inaccesible site.
In the photo a view of the village Tsepelovo with the imposing bulk of the Tzoumerca mountains on top.

    an image with an almost acoustic impact on my viewer's perception! i hear a triumphant ringing sound… don't know exactly what triggers it, something in the dramatic light, something in the splendor of the rocky wall, something about that miniscular man-made clock, trying to deal with that vast entity we call "time" in the face of an overwhelmingly spectacular and awe-inspiring nature… what an impressive place and scenery! beautifully captured with that road leading into the epic mountain like a story… greetings, sabine.

    Nestled at the foot of those towering cliffs this is a very special location showing age and beauty in all aspects.
    Superb details, tones and sharpness.

    what a place - squeezed up against these impressive rocks - seemingly so isolated .... a very fine image with great details and tonality ... fascinating !!!
    greetings, Adele
