A taste of Skioni

ย  Nea Skioniย  is a little village located in the peninsula of Kassandra, Halkidiki, Greece.ย  Nea Skioni was established in 1918 and used to be a fisherman village. It is named after the ancient city of Skioni, whose site was nearby to the east. According to Thucydides, Skioni was built by the Pelleneans from Peloponnese on their way back from the war of Troy. The village is now a popular tourist destination and has one of the prettiest ports in the area.

Hello my dear friends! ๐Ÿ˜€

ย  It’s been great to post photos from Thessaloniki but it’s even better to have new photos from new places that i can share with you. During my 3 day break, i got the chance to explore some areas close to the place i live, in the peninsula of Halkidiki. My next posts will be full of sea, beautiful shades of blue and summer ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope you’ll enjoy them…

ย  Day 13 of the V-Light Art Sale and we are now at 58%. I’m so grateful for all your support! The campaign is going better than i would ever expect and it makes me truly happy to see that all the hard work i’ve put into it, is paying off. My dream of moving to Austria, is coming closer day by day and i’m so excited to finally have the opportunity for a better future.ย Thank you all ๐Ÿ˜€

The all-seeing seagull

ย ย  Another dark day and while awaiting the storm, i felt utterly inspired to take a walk with my camera. The sea is one of my favorite places and even in the city it relaxes me. So my usual walk includes a visit to the marina. I noticed a seagull sitting on the lamp post and i was lucky enough to get this shot before he flew away. After a while it started to rain…

Boats Rest

ย  A quick snapshot at the shores of lake Prespa, just before a big storm. It was already raining lightly when i took this shot and again i chose to include some boats in my frame, hehehe. I think i need to figure out where my fascination with boats stems from. What i really like about this photo is the many layers it has, the 2 boats in front, the wooden promenade, water, hill, boats in the distance, mountains with snow and the dark moody clouds. I think what’s missing is a tad of fog…but then again we must work with what we have ๐Ÿ™‚
