The Guards of Meteora

The Natural History Museum and the BBC Wildlife magazine run every year the Veolia Environment competition one of the most famous competitions for nature and wildlife.

I was pleased to receive a notification that this image has reached the finals in the “Wildscapes” category and it will be competing for the big awards. :)

The giagantic pinnacles of Meteora created some 60 million years ago in the Tertiary period, emerging from the cone of a river and further transformed by earthquakes.

Meteora is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece.
