According to the mythology at the top of Mt Peristeri on Pindos, three brothers lived there in harmony. The serious Arachthos, the beautiful Salavria (Pineios) and the untamed Aspros (Acheloos). One night Salavria, as their brothers were sleeping went downhill secretly to the plain to meet someone of the Olympus Gods. But in vain. Disappointed as she was, she moved towards the neighboring sea and she was drowned. When Aspros realized that Salavria was missing, he was worried and impulsive as he was, he slumped without a second thought the mountains, searching for his sister. Arachthos was worried for his brother and sister that were missing and he started to walk around the Epirus to find them. When he realized that he had definitely lost his brother and sister, he fell into the Ionian Sea and he was drowned. So this fantastic place was created.

Thank you for sharing the myth in your photo information.This is such a beautiful photo. Composition is outstanding!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Verliga area at the mountain of Lakmos, Pindos range, Greece
Time
Its was just the sunset time, before light comes done
Lighting
The Lee filter big stopper and the moving clouds gave this beautiful light in my photo
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 5D mark iii with EF 16-35 f4L II USM. I used also a Lee filter big stopper
Inspiration
According to the mythology at the top of Mt Peristeri on Pindos, three brothers lived there in harmony. The serious Arachthos, the beautiful Salavria (Pineios) and the untamed Aspros (Acheloos). One night Salavria, as their brothers were sleeping went downhill secretly to the plain to meet someone of the Olympus Gods. But in vain. Disappointed as she was, she moved towards the neighboring sea and she was drowned. When Aspros realized that Salavria was missing, he was worried and impulsive as he was, he slumped without a second thought the mountains, searching for his sister. Arachthos was worried for his brother and sister that were missing and he started to walk around the Epirus to find them. When he realized that he had definitely lost his brother and sister, he fell into the Ionian Sea and he was drowned. So this fantastic place was created.
Editing
Just a few steps in Photoshop for toning and contrast
In my camera bag
I use Canon 5D mark iii, EF 20-200 f2.8ii EF 24-105 f4L ii USM, EF 16-35 f/4L, Lee filterbig stopper, manfrotto tripod
Feedback
