Land of Gods

I'm trying to keep things diversified, so (for a change) here's a picture not showing the sea. Greece is called the "Land of Gods" and for this shot I somehow thought this would be a good title. It is taken at "Ossio Lucas", an old monastery founded in the 10th century, not too far away from the well known city of Delfi. Who wouldn't want becoming a monk when looking at this valley every day?

Post-processing was a pain. A hazy sky combined with a cloud that didn't want to move along almost killed every bit of mood that the entire place can give. It took a couple of hours for finding proper settings for exposure corrections, vignetting, tone mapping and saturation levels for recovering at least parts of it...
