Photographer's Note

Thasos. Verdurous. Deep blue. Scenic and unpredictable. Thassos Island long-suffering and glorified. Thasos Island which gave birth to sculptures, painters, thassosrhetoricians and famous athletes, but mostly to simple men of the sea and earth, men who suffered and fought for their land. Rich forests of Thassian pines, black pines and Macedonian pines cover the entire island. Scenic small villages are revealed among the forests or nearby the seaside. Feast of colors and sceneries vary from the green-blue of the sea, to the white of the houses and marbles, or the green of the pines. Lacy seashores, rough rocks, unsighted caves and natural ponds offer the chance for thrilling experiences. Herodotus refers the occurrence of "intrinsic" gold, even if this has not been verified until today. However, the small paradise that you can discover in Thassos, reminds you that there are things in life much more valuable than the entire gold of the world. Discover it!
