Seeking order in Nature


I’ve been meaning for a long time to write a few words about one of the driving forces behind my photography: Living things are constantly competing for resources like light and water in an effort to maximize their potential for survival and thriving. At the same time they are also shaped by forces of nature, like fire, wind, water and ice. Within woodlands and forests, these forces quite often create seemingly unordered patterns that commonly draw the interest of nature photographers.

2013 Nature calendar


As the New Year approaches, I’m happy to announce my new calendar for 2013. Actually, there are three of them. All published with great care and love by George Siourtis. There is a large 30×30 cm wall calendar and two smaller ones, one for the desk and one also for the wall. All calendars were superbly printed by George and his colleagues here in Athens, Greece. The larger calendar features a short story behind each image. All calendars are available in major bookstores, here, in Athens, Greece. All of them are also available through either my website or George Siourtis’ publishing house.

Rock formation patterns


If you have already browsed through my galleries, you may have noticed my love for the layering geological patterns created in rock formations. I am going through my images made at Andros, one of the Cycladic islands in the Aegean sea and I find myself repeatedly going back to my “rock” images, perhaps more than any other of my Andros island series.

Dawn at Old lady’s plummet beach, Andros


This is an image I made a few months ago at the famous beach “The Old Lady’s plummet” (or perhaps “The Old Lady’s leap”) (Της Γριάς το Πήδημα/Tis grias to pidima in Greek). The impressive rock emerging from the sea, is followed by an equally amazing story: during the Ottoman empire’s occupation of Greece, an old lady was forced by the Ottomans to open the doors to the castle looming over Korthi bay (and protecting the island) at the southern end of the island of Andros. Her qualms over helping the Ottomans occupy the castle, forced her to jump from the top of the hill, and this rock symbolizes her plummeting from the mountain to the sea. Amazing story, don’t you think (and it doesn’t matter that it can’t be true, does it)?

Fall is coming


As autumn/fall is quickly approaching in the mountains, here’s an image from one of my favorite mountains for fall colors, mountain Kissavos, in Thessaly. I was mainly drawn to this image because of the dirt road winding to the right, and by the interplay between the dark (-ish) forest and the light falling on the canopy, intensifying the yellow color. Hope you like it as well!
