Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame. When you put four edges around some facts, you change the facts.
Once you really commence to see things, then you really commence to feel things.
Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.
* The long and winding road leads to an old Byzantine tower by the sea and a sleepy village sprawled around it...
The picturesque village of Ouranoupolis with its small fishing harbour and fortified tower lies at the threshold of the unique monastic community of Mount Athos, on the peninsula of Halkidiki. Its name translates "City of the Heavens". With a backdrop of rolling green hills descending to a sparkling sea of the deepest blue, it is a most beautiful corner of Greece.
Many visit the village and the old tower every year. But some of us seem to have fallen under it's spell and cannot get away. We keep returning year after year, after year... As if the mysterious tower by the sea summons us back to Ouranoupolis. Maybe it's because of the golden beaches, the clear blue sea, or the green hilltops with their dazzling views of the bay and the tiny deserted islands.

Γεια σου Γεώργιε,
Εξαιρετική Α/Μ φωτογραφία από την Ουρανούπολης με τον πύργο του Προσφορίου στο βάθος, όμορφη συννεφιασμένη ατμόσφαιρα, ωραίοι τόνοι του γκρι, πολύ καλά διαλεγμένη γωνιά λήψης.
Καλό Σαββατοκύριακο, Βασίλης.
