Agio Pneuma, Holy Spirit, northernmost big summit of the Lefka Ori.
Far away, there is in sight another mountain with a chapel on the top, namely Timios Stavros, Holy Cross, highest summit of Crete.

Un'altra eloquente conferma del mainstream!!

Erano giorni particolari, quelli, per la Grecia.
Inutile dire come in quell'alba, sopra quella bandiera martoriata dal vento gelido (notare la tenda a tunnel, montata nientemeno che dentro la cappella, in luogo della consueta notte col sacco a pelo liberamente steso sotto le stelle), avessi messo anche - e non da ultimo - una certa carica simbolica...
Saluti, Alberto.

A lovely and lonely place to spend the night ...

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

Nice place to camp :)
Pretty windy up there?

Wonderful continuation of your Lefka Ori series. I have often seen these summit shelter walls in windy Scotland - it seems that the people who have took the effort to build them share your passion of staying on the summit. Cheers, Martin

Great pano!

Yes, it was quite windy, as clearly witnessed by the close flags. At home, I need to check the exposure time, but I believe that it was 1/40.
The wind was rather cold, as witnessed by the fact that I slept inside the tunnel tent, which typically I avoid to mount.
The building is not an ordinary summit shelter, but the remains of a chapel, of course dedicated to Agio Pneuma. Consider that the chapel on Timios Stavros is in a far better state!
Should one day on this platform return a reasonable interest for foreign subjects of this kind (consider that this picture was able to reach approx. 150 views without a syllable of reaction - results that only petrol stations in Central Asia are otherwise able to achieve!), I would tell a a very nice story about the Timios Stavros summit chapel. A story related to the most outstanding Cretan writer, Nikos Kazantzakis, and also witnessing that I am not the only one using these sacred buildings in an unorthodox way!
Cheers, Alberto.
