Photographer's Note

I intended to upload a greek windmill picture, but decided to show a tranquil boat picture instead, life is hectic and stressful for me this weekend, the serenity of this one is more comforting than war. Taken mid morning, it was raining in the mountains between Gythio and Monemvassia, but warm sunshine on the coast. Near the southernmost tip of the Balkan peninsula.

Gythio is protected by spurs of the mighty Taygetos mountain range. Its highest "Profitis Ilias", with 2.407 m the highest mountain on the whole Peloponese, makes a marvellous background scene. From November to May, the snow-white peaks are a magnificent sight behind the deep blue sea.
