It is said that you cannot truly understand Western Civilization until you have visited its
birthplace--fabled Greece. In this new photographic collection, I share with you the
romance associated with the Greek Isles, in visits to Santorini, Naxos, and Mykonos.
First, however, I shake off jet-lag and exercise my shutter finger with an excursion
to a small island not far from mainland Greece, home to picturesque
Hydra Town built around a crescent-shaped bay.
Next, we move on by boat to three other islands set in the sparkling Aegean
of the mythical gods and heroes of the ancient world. In fact,
the island of Santorini is
the most unique island on earth and is the
possible site of Lost Atlantis.
Archaeologists believe that Santorini was formed by a cataclysmic eruption
between 1500 and 1300 B.C. that precipitated the end of the Minoan
Santorini is today a quiet and hauntingly beautiful island.
It's capital, the little town of Fira,
clings to the edge of a cliff, which
is in fact, the rim of the crater. It is reached by 587
steps winding their
way up from the harbor, which are the subject of the
"Down to the Sea".
Not to be missed for its' unspoiled Greek atmosphere is the island of Naxos
varied scenery that is a verdant and mountainous hinterland. The
"Naxos Dining" was taken in one of the geranium filled
back-streets of the old Naxos town.
Mykonos is the definitive Greek Island. Perhaps the most famous holiday
resort in the
Aegean, with an area of 23 square miles and a population of
about 15,000. The
outstanding feature of this island, situated 96 nautical
miles from Piraeus, is its dazzling
brightness; blazing sunlight reflects
off the always freshly whitewashed houses and
everything is white -- even the trunks of the few trees
in town are painted
This brightness makes getting up in the morning a pleasure. When evening
Mykonos comes alive with activity such as dining at smartly set
with brilliant red table clothes as seen in my photograph,
"Little Venice Dining".
Mykonos offers romantic beauty found nowhere on earth. The island has been
the "Venice of Greece" and also the "Capri of Greece" because of its
rich sandy beaches.
I hope you will feel the essence of these strikingly beautiful Greek Islands
I captured on this dream photographic tour.
