I took this shot in the first week of January early in the morning from the Varlaam Monastery, the sun was just over the Meteora rocks and lit up the morning haze in the valleys and gave the shot its dreamy look.

It is worth spending a couple of days (or even a week) shooting around Meteora and make use of the early mornings, not only because of the fantastic light but also to avoid the crowd of tourists that flock to the monasteries at any time of the year.
