now this is making me hate the English winter even more. A stunning capture of a stunning island. Can feel the warmth and taste the oregano on my large slab of feta! A flawless execution and tantalising presentation......big "sigh" Beautiful!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

Για σου Βασίλη
οταν βλέπω τις φωτογραφίες σου ταξιδεύω
πάντα και αναπολώ διακοπές,τι όμορφη
λήψη πραγματικά,οί κόκκινες σκεπές
των σπιτιών και το βαθύ μπλε της
θάλασσας είναι καταπλητκικά
