Photographer's Note

Once again, please open the image in a new window tab to see a much clearer and sharper image.

I have read many TE members advise about getting the best image quality out of this site. Seems like it doesn't matter if I upload images 800 pixels, 1200 pixels or 1500 pixels, they're mostly blurred - when in fact I know the image is not.
So please, right click the image to open it in a new window - thanks.

This is really starting to frustrate me to great lengths. Makes me want to drop TE like a ticking time bomb.

This was one of the places that was on my to-photograph list before arriving in Athens Greece.

And as usual I was very excited when i finally arrived here.

I knew the wide angle lens would be best suited to show off this oval running track.

The Panathenaic Stadium hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. So for obvious reasons it was pretty darn cool to see this in person.

Of course its been kept up, and modernized a little bit, otherwise it would probably be totally run down and derelict.

It was great to see that local school children now come here with their teachers. When I visited, there were several classes playing volleyball in the middle area you see in the photo. The teachers would then escort the children in and around the stadium for history lessons.

I didn't use my tripod on this one. I just set my camera down on one of the steps you see, thats why its composed the way it is with the steps down low in the fg.

Hope you like it
