Photographer's Note

This is certainly not a typical photo of Tinos island.
Neither the port of the island, nor the majestic church of “Panagia Evangelistria” that Tinos is known for, are shown in my photo.
I decided to post this image as to show you the mainland of Tinos, which is quite typical for all Cycladic islands in the Aegean sea.
Quite infertile and rocky ground with minor vegetation on it.
Every plant and tree on the island has also to deal with very strong winds, blowing almost every day and even in Summertime.
However I find this landscape, majestic and minimalistic.
(The buildings on the left are of typical Cycladic architecture and are used mostly as accommodations for tourists.)
Thank you for visiting.
