Crete 2010 #10 South coast - phrygana

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 24 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.

The earth meets the sky... Magnificent!

@Marilla: Sometimes the line between the see and the sky was abolutely invisible and many times I wondered where earth stops and sky begins ... I like that mystic atmosphere. Thanks for your comment, Marilla.

Prachtig landschap, de schaapjes zitten precies in de lucht, ;-)
Knap gecadreerd.

@Siepi: Als je goed kijkt zie je ook de schaapjes op de linkerheuveltop .... Ik hou nu eenmaal van herhalingen in het onderwerp :-) Dank voor je bezoek en je commentaar, Siepe.

@anne: De vergezichten kunnen soms adembenemend zijn. Moeilijk om dat allemaal op de sensor vast te leggen. Dank je Anne.

Sylvia from -, Netherlands

Prachtig dat landschap, en zo groen. Ik ken Het Griekse landschap alleen van de zomers en dan is het heel dor.
Mooie compositie!

@Sylvia: Ik kan me voorstellen dat het er in de zomer totaal anders uitziet. In het voorjaar is Kreta een echt bloemenparadijs met heel wat soorten die enkel op dat eiland groeien. Kan je enkel maar aanraden ook een keer in het voorjaar die richting uit te trekken ... Dank voor je commentaar, Sylvia.

@JCJ: Thank you, JCJ. I like to include lots of sky in my images to include the wideness of a particular view. The sense of freedom ....

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

beautiful sky !!

@Veronique: I think sky's with lots of clouds are much more attractive in an image then a full blue sky. The different patterns in the clouds can lead to always changing daydreams ... :-) Have a nice day, Veronique.
