Photographer's Note

From Chios harbour, looking at the çesme peninsula where I spent childhood summers. This kind of shot could be from anywhere, so I only add a general introduction to Chios island from the internet(don't believe the temperatures not exceeding 32 degrees part):

Chios is one of the islands of the north-east Aegean, very close to Asia Minor and opposite to Erithrea peninsula, seperated from it by the Chios canal. The country consists of 10 municipalities, most of which were formed after the joining of small communities.
The climate of Chios is typical of the Mediterranean, with usual north or north-west winds and temperatures not exceeding 31 or 32 degrees Celcius. Merchant marine plays a very important role in the economy of Chios. The main port is the one of the city of Chios, but there are also some of secondary importance, those of Lagada, Marmaro and Mesta.
One of the most important products of Chios island is mastic, which is uniquely produced on it, it is famous and world - widely renowned for its aroma and taste. It is uniquely cultivated in Mastihohora and about 120 tons of it are exported to other countries.
