Photographer's Note

A view from Mt Kleidi (approx. 320m) to the north-west.
The landscape is quite far from the foot of the mountain and surrounds the bay of Partheni.

Leros was the island (one of many:)of goddess Artemis who was Parthenos (Virgin) and in the north part of the island roamed her sacred birds (meleagris) until a few decades ago. There was also a temple dedicated to Artemis in the area of Partheni but now there's dispute as to where it really stood.

The long formed island further away is called Arhangelos (Archangel) and in the distance lies another island I love very much, Patmos (about 20 miles away). Maybe you can discern its Chora in the upper left part pf the frame.

The title is due to Mt Kleidi being the background to many of my photos:)

Thank you for visiting
