Crete 2010 #7 Phaistos - Messaravalley

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 21 January 2011 in Landscape & Rural 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.

@Veronique: The UWA-lens can give some very special effects. I do not use it a lot, but in making landscapes I'm liking the lens more and more ...

Wow...geweldig effect zo'n totaalbeeld! Zullen de visjes nooit zien, maar wij gelukkig wel:-) )

@Marleen: Tja, toevallig ben ik een visje ... (al ben ik niet met die sterrenbeelden bezig...) ... Ik begin echt wel van die groothoeklenseffecten te houden .... (wat een woord...) Groetjes en fijn weekend voor je !

@anne: Landschappen zijn ontzettend divers in Kreta. Met een ultragroothoeklens krijg je al snel heel wat lucht mee in beeld - niet echt makkelijk te belichten en het is wat wennen aan het perspectief, maar ik begin deze lens meer en meer te gebruiken voor landschapjes ... Bedankt voor je bezoekje alweer, Anne.
