28 Jun 2005 Monk in Karies

28 Jun 2005 "Monk in Karies"

This is an image from my new gallery "Pilgrimage to Mount Athos"
You can visit the gallery by clicking the image bellow.
Mountain Athos (Agion Oros in greek) is the most holy place of Orthodoxy.
No picture could describe the beauty of this place...
You can see in this gallery the desperate attempt of a pilgrim to give you a small idea of it.
Unfortunately the spirituality can only be felt and can not be transmitted with the narrow limits of my photographic skill.
