well nothing fancy, just a shot of the original Mt. Olympus in the distance as I was going to the city of Larisa earlier today, shot through the windscreen

Wow, still a lot of snow up there. I've been to Larisa, but didn't make it up to Mt. Olympus, unfortunately.
well it had much more snow a month ago but I missed the opportunity twice:
second time by shooting through the moving car windshield so no proper focus,

first time a few days before as I missed the clear days after last winter blizzard
this time shot closer to my home, 100 kms to the south of the mountain region

@RichDesmond ... so let me post some better shots for you, before the last April blizzard,
these taken in the middle of last March, at about 100kms away as well:

Firstly a panorama where you can see Mt.Olympus on the left and Mt. Kissamos on the right.
In the old folk songs the smaller Mt.Kissamos always challenges Mt.Olympus on who will pour more calamity on people, which one will snow and which one will rain upon them:

Awesome!! Thanks so much, you have given me yet another reason to go back to Greece. :)
hurry on when they fly again as we have contained the virus successfully, for now that is... who knows next year ... wish I did not had to drive mother-in-law two days after the usual late March (... got into April this year) blizzard so I could stop and shoot the gods mountain as a totally white mountain region down to its roots atop a fully earth colored valley underneath it...
