Greek Series: Red Santorini

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies I shot while backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and the last post featuring an expedition to Nea Kameni can be accessed here.

The caldera of Santorini is an amazing place. Due to the major volcano eruption around 3,500 thousand years ago the island is covered in red and black stone, exposing layers of rock which are million of years old. Also the water tends to be reddish at times, making it an almost alien sight.

Greek Series: Around the Gulf of Corinth

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies I shot while backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and the last post featuring Mykonos and Delos can be accessed here.

In this one I recall our journey around the Gulf of Corinth, visiting small villages and larger cities. But mostly it is all about beauty nature and the all present sea.

Greek Series: Mykonos and Delos

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies I shot while backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and the last post featuring Mykonos can be accessed here.

Mykonos is part of the Cyclad islands. Today a populous island, living mostly of tourism. It is well known for its beaches and night life. In ancient times though the much smaller sister island of Delos was much more important than Mykonos. It was a sacral island and a place of worship mainly for the gods Apollon and Artemis. After its decline Delos was largely forgotten and rediscovered only in modern times by archeologists from France. Today it is a museum and can be visited easily from Mykonos by ferry. The pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 (the well known lion statues) and 6 are from Delos, while the other are shot on Mykonos.

Greek Series: Mykonos Part I

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies shot while I was backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and a list of all previous posts over here.

So you may wonder how we got from Nauplia to Mykonos. The truth is we didn’t, at least not directly. Mykonos was actually one of the last destinations on our journey. Before we embarked on a ferry to the islands we travelled around mainland Greece quite extensively. But for today I skipped the Peloponnes because the weather there was not always perfect and as much as I like archeological stuff and hilly landscapes, I think the blog and I myself needed a bit of summer island feeling in these (more or less) harsh and dark winter days. And that we definitively had on Mykonos. Still there is a lot to cover on the Peloponnes and many shots are left, so next time we come back to mainland Greece again. But for now: Hope you enjoy beautiful Mykonos as I saw it.
