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!

Lone tree, Stymfalia


I have been pretty busy lately preparing images for my series of 2013 calendars. One of the images that was selected by my publisher is the following, from the banks of lake Stymfalia, in Peloponnese. The site is renowned for one of the Labors of Hercules, regarding the slaying of the Stymphalian birds. The whole area at Stymfalia evokes a strong sense of  history, as it is also the site of an important archaeological site. This tree drew my attention as it stood alone on the banks of the lake, and for some reason it felt like it was representing some sort the “Tree of life”. Weird, I know, but that’s how it felt!

First post! Meteora image


First post in my new website. Some text is still a work in progress, but overall I think the website is in a stage  to go out and “meet the world”! Starting with an older photo of mine that I have recently re-processed and quite like it. It is from the St. Nicholas Anapafsas at Meteora, Thessaly, Greece. Made in early morning in the spring of 2007. Hope you like it!
