Kilkis, Mouries and mount Beles - near the frontiers - JAN. 2013 CONTEST

Mouries (berries) is the last Greek village near Lake Doiran, Kilkis, which is the natural border of the country with Skopje. Beside the lake, the landscape is amazing, with clumps of trees and the forest of Mouries (Thousand Trees) and meadows, the mountains of Beles beyond.
