I think that my special preference for the Lefka Ori has been already understood on this site, but it has been this summer that I have climbed nearly a twenty of these summits, shooting at least one panorama from each of them.
Needless to say, this will pose a serious challenge for the patience of the Betrachter in the near future. Just as a little help to overcome the problem, I have thought to start (not least, as an exercise to return, after a pause, to the used panorama practice) with a view from Grias Soros, which is for me the most beautiful among these mountains. Depleted of its perfect conical shape, this panorama should be in a certain sense the worst of the series, so things should go better in the future for the Betrachter (?!).
Names and heights follow primarily the Anavasi sheets Lefka Ori 1:25.000 and Samaria-Sougia-Paleohora 1:30.000. Secondarily they follow, when needed, my GPS.
The major error on Udeuschle is Mesa Soros being named Svourikti, with the latter becoming a vague Soros.

Among the instructive pages about these mountains let me point out:

31 HF, Canon G1X, 85 mm equiv, f/5.6, 1/640 sec.

Sarà un esercizio, ma per me è fantastica.

Very nice - I am also very patient:-) KR Jan.

Fantastic - very much looking forward to the upcoming 19 views. Collecting these hills seems even more rewarding than collecting Munros, given that they are even lonelier, and much, much drier. Cheers, Martin

Martin: I will for sure work hard in order to fulfill your desire for the 19!
Sooner or later they will indeed come... For now, following an advice by Heinz Höra, in order to ease my job, I started to correct the Lefka Ori information contained on Geonames. Just for information, the advice was grabbed from N.18233 where there was the problem of a 13m height difference. Even meditating that mankind has perhaps bigger problems - especially nowadays - than those 13 metres, I took on enthusiastically the suggestion, and already today I am starting to obtain from Udeuschle sounder renderings of these beloved Cretan Munros.
Still, one has perhaps bigger problems than that of finding all summits messed up on Udeuschle, but I must admit that the job goes on in a somewhat smoother way!
Cheers, Alberto.
