Our trip started at 4:50am, early morning wake-up after a night of astrophotography, got dressed in a hurry, grabbed the backpacks and into the car we went. After driving for 1 & 1-2 hours in a landscape full of turns in deep fog we arrived at the "Kokkoru" Bridge.
We had little time to figure out our compositions and guess where the sun would first appear.
I positioned myself inside the very cold river stream and locked my focus before installing my ND filter. A few minutes later the sun started to shine, once it went past the rock it was shooting time.

This is the result!
Enjoy the beautiful landscape of Epirus in Greece!
