CYPRUS, IN THE TROODOS MOUNTAINS

This was December 2018 in the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus. A beautiful area getting away from the popular coastal areas. I would expect this to be very popular during the hot summers, and it is noticeably much cooler up here at any time. Indeed, they have a skiing resort here, but there wasn’t much snow about when I was there – just a sprinkling at the top.

Apart from the stunning scenery, It was quite wonderful to smell the aroma of the pine trees. It made me want to breathe more deeply. It seemed more intensely perfumed than anything I experienced before.

Up in the clouds on Mount Olympus. There was a smattering of snow here.
