Months passed since I left Lisbon and life is moving on. The place though stayed dear to my heart. Also there are still pictures left to show. While this one is not the last series from Portugal, it is the last one with the general theme of Lisbon – or Lisboa in Portugues.
Landscape photographies taken in Northern Portugal displayed in a non-chronological order. No post-coloring applied, the colors are real. Shot with Canon 600D and a Sigma Objective (18-250mm).
So finally, here comes the last part of my photographic journey through Greece in September 2013. It all started in Athens, where we found a lively metropole thorn between an ancient and heroic past and a troubled but somewhat forward looking present. Then the road trip through the Peloponnes began, which would lead us through places of myths and of nature. Later we left mainland Greece and continued our road trip on high sea, heading to the famous Cyclad islands. We experienced the young and open island of Mykonos, paid a short visit to the ancient Delos, but the highlight for me was Santorini without a doubt. It is such a photogenic island, it almost suspends any belief. And beyond being just photogenic, it is truly beautiful. And the most beautiful thing about it is something I didn’t show you yet. The sunsets here are out of this world, as kitschy it may sound. So I think that’s the way to end the series and say goodbye to Greece for now.. by showing you some of my favorite moments on Santorini at sunset.
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.
