The holidays brought us to the northern part of our country. 
With Thessaloniki as our set-off point, we followed mountain paths
 leading to crispy landscapes where nature’s beauty astonished us.

Brushing against Lake Vegoritida, on the way to
 Agios Athanasius village, we couldn’t help but stop to admire 
the peacefulness and the magnificence of an unspoiled natural 
habitat. The lake extended surprisingly serene before us.
 Absolute silence was only interrupted by ducks and sounds 
of fluttering wings. I burst out of the car, eager to drink up
 the magic with my lens. 

I feel lucky because ever since I began taking photography more
 seriously, I have had the privilege of revealing a drop of this 
ocean of splendour around us.

For those like me, living near the sea, able to smell the salty breeze
 daily, the sight of a lake provides a completely different sensation. 
It’s all about the zen: stillness, peace, stability and a sense of forever.
 It’s funny how some landscapes can seem exotic to some and mundane
 to others and vice versa. This short ‘handshake’ with this beautiful 
area felt quite personal as if I had met somebody for the first time. 

Travelling can definitely offer us a dose of magic filing the gap
 of our routine. Even these photos, the remnants of my visit, have
 the power to make me smile once again and 
I hope this is the case for you too. 

Many thanks for all your comments on my last post and 
warm wishes in view of the New Year. 
This post marks my five year anniversary in blogging, 
a journey that I owe to you as well. 
I wish all of you and each one of you 
g o o d  h e a l t h  and
 the rejuvenating  j o y  of discovering anything new.
