[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Samaria gorge is the largest gorge in Creta island.Located in the region of Chania, it daily attracts many people eager to take the challenge to cross the gorge. For an everage walker, it takes roughly 5 hours to cover the 13 km of the path . Close to the exit, I took the picture of what is the narrowest point of the gorge, with only 2 meters of distance beetween the rocks. The locals call this point "the doors".
