Photographer's Note

Situated on a wide bay on the South coast of Lefkas, Vassiliki is the second largest holiday resort on the Island.

The village of Vasiliki itself is on the Eastern side of the bay - the Western side of the bay is called Ponti. Here I spend most of the time during my trip to Lefkas.

Vassiliki is fairly quiet at the start and end of the summer season, but really comes to life in July and August when it is recognised as one of the windsurfing capitals of Europe.

The bay is wide and sheltered, and is noted for it's afternoon wind known as 'Eric'. On a good day, the sight of hundreds of windsurfers speeding across the water is spectacular, I`ve heard.

I hope to see this place again, during the summer especially. Hundreds of windsurfers must be a spectacular view indeed.

This shot was taken from church`s tower and exhibits local architecture. The wide angle lens made good job, I think.

Hope you like it!
