Photographer's Note

I was at the same place, on Lake Vegoritis (or Vegoritida )a day before this one, around sunset and I took some photos (you can see one HERE), but I couldn't wait for my favorite "blue" hour, because I had arranged something else. So I had to return a day after to take some nightshots.

One of the most interesting part of my travels around Greece, is when I meet old people and they tell me stories about their region. I feel blessed for being able to have a contact with those people full of the wisdom of life.

The night of the photo, as soon as I packed my camera and my tripod, I went down to the floating bar for a drink and for some moments of relaxation after a hard day. I saw there an old man, who looked a lot like the stereotype of the retired mariner. He was looking at the lake with humid eyes, as if he was looking for a substitute of the "big" salty water of the sea to the "small" sweet water of the lake.

Maybe, all this is just my imagination. He didn't want to tell me a word about his life and he wouldn't accept to be photographed. But he told me dozens of stories, legends and fairy tales about his homeland, Lake Vegoritis. He was one of the best storytellers I 've met in my life, and it was the most pleasant night of my stay at the region.
