It was my birthday weekend and with the weather warming up we decided to take a hike. We had went to Macedonia in the winter however the hiking trail was dangerous to attempt in snow and ice, but now with spring coming we decided to take the trip. My girlfriend and I had planned on climbing to the peak and shooting birds of prey, but I liked the way the sun was falling on the landscape and the shadows created by the clouds so I took this long lens landscape shot. Since it was mid-day I knew black and white would work better and I always love an opportunity to try my hand at Ansel-esque scenes.
