Photographer's Note

The "Apollon" and other small fishing boats anchored in the harbour of Skiathos town, Greece.

Skiathos is part of the group of islands known as the Sporades ("Scattered islands"), east of the Greek mainland. Sailing through that area you would sporadically reach an island.

During the summer season most people staying on Skiathos seem to be British and Nordic tourists. Now, as we have entered October, the season is officially over and the island is left to the few thousand locals, living mainly in the only town. The rest of the island is basically empty and closed.

The weather was rather dull this day. In the night and the morning it had been raining heavily. Now, at noontime, it was clearing up and I had taken the local bus into town to have lunch and take some pictures. By the time I got back to my village at the other end of the island the sun was once again shining brightly.

You can see two more postcards from Skiathos town in the workshop.
If you right-click on the main photo and open it in a new window you can see it at full size.
