Thermaic Gulf - Thessaloniki - Greece

As viewed from Chortiatis mountain...

This shot is not processed... It was a really cloudy afternoon... the sun although high could not be seen hidden behind the clouds... still powerful though to provide this lovely color...

The Thermaic Gulf (Greek: Θερμαϊκός Κόλπος) is a gulf of the Aegean Sea located immediately south of Thessaloniki, east of Pieria and Imathia, and west of Chalkidiki (prefectures of Greece). It was named after the ancient town of Therma, which was situated on the coast along the gulf (Therma was later renamed Thessalonica; therma in greek means "hot"). The length is about 100 km and the width is 5 km near Thessaloniki, about 15 km to the north and as far as about 50 km to the south. (Source en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermaic_Gulf)
