Crete 2010 #33 Safe return

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 16 February 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.

Florence from Paris, France

Sea of gold, truly remarquable. And finally, with this specific boat here, it looks alike asia, no ? Probably because everything seems so quiet and still...

16 Feb 2011 12:17pm

@Florence: The image has indeed a sense of Asia. Probably it is the form of the boat? It was a wonderfull evening and remarkable: almost no wind... so the sea was very calm. Thanks for your comment, Florence. Greetz !

sublieme kleuren

@anne: Het kleurenpallet die avond was ontzettend mooi. Met het tele-perspectief krijg je natuurlijk enkel het meest gekleurde deel te zien - wat een leuk pallet op kan leveren. Groetjes.
