Photographer's Note

The view from my Hotel terrace in Delphi, looking towards the coastal town of Itea on the Gulf of Corinth. The bright area at right is a canal or aqueduct. There are a few wind turbines on the tops of some of the hills. Delphi is famous for the Oracles. Alexander the Great came here for advice on whether he should go ahead with his plans of conquest. After Pythia, the priestess to Apollo, avoided him for a day or 2, fearing retribution or death if her prophesies did not come true, he eventually got her to tell him his fortune, and she advised him to go ahead. The rest is history. The temple ruins are about 1km at left from here.
