Olympus by alexiuss Olympus by alexiuss
"No wind ever shakes the untroubled peace of Olympus; no rain ever falls there, or snow; but the cloudless firmament stretches around it on all sides and the white glory of sunshine is diffused upon its walls"
- Homer

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Croatia, view from Grad Jelsa, Island Hvar.
Behind the ship you can see island Brač, with several cities dotting its shores.
The mountains of Brač are about 700 meters high... and as for the massive cloud that rises above the mountains, covering them... that I have no idea about.
With Mediterranean cloud-mountain landscapes like these it's no wonder the Greeks believed in mount Olympus.

Have you manipulated the picture at all, like increased saturation or anything like that? Or is it just the camera you used?

The richness of the colours are amazing!!

I think I remember seeing this in the National Geographic website. YourShot, right? Or Daily Dozen? I remember how breath-taking it was when I first saw it then spent several years trying to track it down again. 8D I can't believe I found it here!

...When you search "Divine Bra" in the search bar, this comes up second.
...I don't understand...

:iconalexiuss:
alexiuss Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
Hahahaha. that's because the "search keywords" for this painting are "Divine Brac'"
Brac'is an island in Croatia that's in the background of this photo.


why would you search for a "divine bra" in the first place?
thats the question I don't understand.

Oh.
That's actually hilarious!

There's a long backstory to that.
Basically, I've created this item that is s spoof on one game called the "Divine Bra".
And, I wanted to explain something to my sister, so I decided to pull up my first picture with this item in it.
...And this deviation was the second listed under said search.
