Photographer's Note

In one of my previous posts (Blind Faith), I wrote that it will always remain a mystery to me, how a man makes the decision, to deny all earthly pleasures and become a monk.

If this is something dificult to understand, then what about the people that chose to live in these hermitages that you can see on the lower part of this vertical rock, searching for communication with their God? How can a man live in a tiny hole of a rock? At least, in a monastery, there are some "comforts".

INCREDIBLE!!!

These are the Hermitages of Saint Anthony and Saint Gregory, close to the abandoned monastery of Saint Nicholas Badovas. You can see them if you take the footpath that connects Kastraki village and Kalambaka town.

PS. The light was so exciting that day, the last rays of the sun painted everything around in golden tones, that I forgot my "schedule" and missed the sunset...
