    I don't like winter that's why I have been looking at my summer photos lately.

    This landscape + architecture reminds me of Tenerife.

    A pleasing composition too,

    Nice image. I like the composition as well.

    I do have to ask; do you even have winter (as I know it) in Greece?

    Gee, winter on the Mediterranean. How do you tell the difference between your winter and summer photos. You really must have a hard time. My condolences Miltos.

    Yep have to ask the question, what is winter like in Greece. We get down to -4ish degrees C and rain and fog and go to work in the dark and get home in the dark.
    On the up side, it's Summer now
    Cheers, Greg

    Well guys you might not believe it but actually we do have winter in Greece. The big difference is that it last shorter, from mid December to the end of February roughtly.

    I am at Patras at the moment (west central Greece next to the sea) where the temperature at night is about 6 oC . The mountains around the city have snow above about 1200 meters altitude and the ski centers are now open. Even the mountains in Crete are currently full of snow. In Florina (not Florida!!), a north Greece city the temerature during night is -11 oC (look here if you don't believe me). The temperature usually drops considerably during the first weeks of February when the temperature in Athens is about 0 oC. The temperature also varies to the location. Keep in mind that Greece is a country full of mountains of altitude above 1500 meters (the highest, Olympus, being about 3000 meters) that keep snow for about 3-4 months.

    Of course not even close to north European winter or even worst (I imagine)... Canada.

    Still, thick jackets and all we can do is just watch the sea....
