Crete 2010 #4 Spili monastery bread dispensation

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 18 January 2011 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

In April 2010 I made a photo-trip to Crete. The main goal was surching and documenting the wild orchids and endimic flora of the Island. I already posted some of the species back in april (all images posted between 23/04/2010 and 15/05/2010).
In this series I will be posting mainly cityscapes and landscapes taken on the island during that trip.
For me it is a good occasion to review my images and select only the best and most representative ones from this trip.

Wow, this is a nice photo full of action! The air is unbelievable clear and the sky really blue. I need sunglasses...

@anne: We waren op het juiste moment op de juiste plaats blijkbaar. Het was in ieder geval een hele ervaring om die processie en het hele gebeuren dat erbij hoort, mee te maken.

@Christine: Hi, CHristine, nice to see you back. Hope you're fine ! It was a strange kind of ceremony out there... everyone recieved some pieces of bread after the cervice and the procession. I don't know the meaning of that but is was just a great moment there.
