Frakto Forest, Rhodope Mountain, Drama, Greece by Christos Vasiliadis

When dealing with landscape photography and chasing the magic moment, it is amazing to see how nature and the weather cooperate in order to offer you that moment. Especially when it takes place in front of you and you have to move quickly to set the tripod and camera, and find the frame you want to capture.

This happened the day I went to Frakto Forest. During the morning hours and while wandering in the forest, clouds began to descend and embrace the peaks. At that time I went to the garden of rocks and came across nature's games. Right that time I traveled once again to the world of Tolkien and Middle Earth. This time in the Misty Mountains.

About Author 

Christos Vasiliadis

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. Living in such a busy, fast-paced city where stress and responsibilities are part of daily life, I turned to photography as a form of expression and escape. I took many photos, the classic "everyday” photos that everyone captures until 2011 when I started to explore photography more deeply and realized that for me, photography is actually a way of life. I’m self-taught, starting from zero and gradually developing my skills and the technicalities of photography. I’m not a professional, just a passionate photographer with a full-time job and a wonderful family. Landscape photography has developed into a passion and I consider myself lucky to live in a country that offers great variety and diversity of natural landscapes. A trek on a mountain or a coastal area satisfies me like nothing else. Photography and nature is a unique combination and this beauty is what I try to convey through my photos.
