A taste of Skioni

Β  Nea SkioniΒ  is a little village located in the peninsula of Kassandra, Halkidiki, Greece.Β  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! πŸ˜€

Β  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 πŸ˜‰ I hope you’ll enjoy them…

Discovering new views…

I made it my goal to try and view the place i grew up and spend most of my life, with a different eye. This panorama was taken from a construction site next to my house that has been abandoned for some years now. I always wondered how the view would be from up there and now that i saw this, i want a balcony up there πŸ˜€ I did not post-process this image except from stitching the photos together, i think the natural colors do it enough justice.

Foggy day in my village

Yesterday was quite a peculiar day. The fog started early in the morning and lasted throughout the day, as a result of that, the smoke from the chimneys got trapped under the fog creating a rather unpleasant atmosphere. Of course i could not stay inside and not take any photos so i went for a quick walk around my house, when i got back i was couching and had a runny nose, today i’m fine though πŸ™‚ Here are a few photos, with minimum edit, only contrast and white balance was enhanced from the raw files.
