Photographer's Note

Lemnos is an island in the northern part of the Aegean Sea. It is part of the Greek prefecture of Lesbos and has a considerable area, about 438 km² (150 sq.mi). A great part is mountainous, but some very fertile valleys exist. The chief towns are Myrina, on the western coast, and Moudros on the eastern shore of a large bay in the middle of the island. Myrina (aka Kastro) possesses an excellent harbour, and is the seat of all the trade carried on with the island. The hillsides afford pasture for sheep. A few mulberry and fruit trees grow, but no olives. Muscat grapes are grown widely, and are used to produce an unusual table wine that is dry yet has a strong Muscat flavor.
