I Love This Photo - Kato Gouves, Crete


This photo was taken in Kato Gouves Village, Island of Crete, on Monday, February 23, 2009. Nature's colours in Crete during winter can be very warm and saturated. Crete's North Cost offers to the photographer a variety of waterfront subjects like this beautiful small boat.
  
The unique texture of the clouds and the rocks along with the solitude of this colorfull boat make me love that photo! Photographer's website

I Love This Photo - Heraklion Port, Crete

This photo was taken in Heraklion Port, Island of Crete, on Saturday, February 14, 2009.Heraklion Port is one of the largest and busiest international ports of Greece, especially during the summer months, connecting the Island of Crete with Pireaus and the Greek Mainland, Island of Rhodes and other smaller Islands. Also it is a major stop-over for large holiday cruisers.
During the winter months, you have the opportunity to experience relaxing afternoon promenades next to the water. The depth of this image, the saturated winter colours and that man with the red jacket who came exactly at the right moment make me love that photo! Photographer's website

I Love This Photo - Elafonissos, Crete


This photo was taken in Elafonissos, Island of Crete on Saturday, November 29, 2008. Elafonissos is one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete. It is located about 70 kilometres South-West of Chania Town. During Spring and Summer months you get a real tropical feeling. A beautiful collection of small coves with all the shades of pink and gold, shallow and calm waters with cedars right next to the waterfront.

During the winter months, when all the tourists have gone and strong winds from the Libyan Sea are hammering the south cost of the Island, then the whole scenery changes dramatically. It is exactly when you can get a photograph of that area in a way that very few people have done it. That's why I love that photo! Photographer's website
