“The secret of the mountain is that the mountains simply exist, as I do myself: the mountains exist simply, which I do not. The mountains have no ”meaning,” they are meaning; the mountains are.”- Peter Matthiessen.
Most of the pictures are taken in the beautiful Mani where I have lived since 2017. The mountain range is called Taygetos. The name ”Taygetos” is one of the oldest recorded in Europe, appearing in the Odyssey. In classical mythology, it was associated with the nymph Taygete. This is also the classical Mount Taleton mentioned by Pausanias, in the second century AD and the peak was dedicated to Helios, the Sun and Zeus.
