Scenes from the Pelion



Favourite views, favourite patterns

Looking out from Milina, on the Pelion peninsular, the Pagasetic Gulf looks like a lake on many occasions. At such times it’s hard to believe it is part of the Mediterranean.

I love many of the views but there is one in particular that always catches my eye ….

from Milina looking south to the backbone of the mountains leading to Trikeri. Photo taken by Carole Brown May 2019.

Looking at the photos I had downloaded onto my laptop, I suddenly realised how similar this view looked to one I had loved and become very familiar with while living in Lake County California.

Here’s a photo of that view – not the best but the only one I can find while sitting here in Greece – so that you can see what I mean by similar scenes.

Looking along Clear Lake from Lakeport, California, with Mt Konocti in the distance. Photo taken by Carole Brown Sept 2016.

Does it look similar to you, too? I’d love to know what you think.

I am still amazed by these two views when I consider how far apart they are from each other ….

When I thought about how I might be attracted to places because of shapes that attract me, I decided to call this post “Favourite places, favourite patterns”.

I hope it’s been fun for you to see these two views and to think about places and shapes, scenes and patterns that you find attractive and enjoyable to see.

Seeing these two pictures together makes me think about a topic related to how our brains work that fascinates me. It’s called pattern recognition (pattern recognition describes a cognitive process that matches information from a stimulus with information retrieved from memory) –more about that in one of my other blogs!
