Β  Winter is coming…No, it’s already here! We had a very sudden change of weather in Greece. Typically in my area it would still be summer-like until the end of October, with temperatures over 20c.Β  So today i woke up to a rainy and cold day with the thermometer barely showing 11c. That’s winter for us here. Despite all that i do like rainy and cloudy weather so i grabbed an umbrella and my camera and went out shooting. There’s not a lot of things to shoot at my little village but i thought it would be nice to visit one of the newly opened trails in our little forest. And i was right…it felt like i entered a different planet. Kriopigi is mainly a summer destination. It’s right next to the sea and most if not all of its shops and facilities are only open during the summer season. In the winter you can safely call it a ghost village. It’s really unfortunate that they don’t take advantage of its beautiful forest and walking trails. I think i need to do a complete hiking trip and photograph the whole area, make a post about it and spread it around so people can realize that Halkidiki is not only about summer and the sea…
