Some photographs of the beautiful and relaxing seascape off of Cape Sounio  or the ‘Athenian Riviera’.  I wish I had this view all the time, well maybe not on stormy days 😉

Μερικές φωτογραφίες από το όμορφο και χαλαρωτικό θαλασσινό τοπίο από το ακρωτήρι του Σούνιου ή την ‘Αθηναϊκή Ριβιέρα’. Μακάρι να είχα αυτή την θέα κάθε μέρα , ίσως όχι στις θυελλώδεις ημέρες 😉

“Δεν πρέπει να χάσετε την πίστη στην ανθρωπότητα. Η ανθρωπότητα είναι ένας ωκεανός. αν μερικές σταγόνες του ωκεανού είναι βρώμικες, ο ωκεανός δεν γίνεται βρώμικος.” Μαχάτμα Γκάντι

Passing Through/Διέρχεται

The smell of rain in the summer air       Η μυρωδιά της βροχής στον καλοκαιρινό αέρα

   everything is changing                                        όλα αλλάζουν

         the sky rages                                                ο ουρανός μαίνεται

     the ground shakes                                         το έδαφος κουνιέται

   unstable mother earth                                       ασταθής γη

      angry since birth.                                   θυμωμένη από τη γέννηση της.

The beautiful lake in Marathon where Athenians get their water from.  I love water, all bodies of water 🙂

Η πανέμορφη λίμνη του Μαραθώνα όπου οι Αθηναίοι παίρνουν το νερό τους. Λατρεύω το νερό, όλα τα υδατικά συστήματα 🙂

Snow Capped Mountains/Χιονισμενα Βουνα

mtpentelitxtsnowcappedmountainsThe new year brought a new winter storm named ‘Telemachos’ (named after a character in Greek mythology) to Greece.  It snowed in the Attiki region of Greece for the first time in years. The rest of Greece is worse than Canada-yikes!  I wanted to make it up those mountains take some pictures, but the traffic is insane.

More ‘icy’ photos to come.

Ο Τηλεμαχος ηρθε και παγωσαμε!

Πιο ‘παγωμενες’ φωτογραφιες συντομα.

Akrokorinthos is a cliff that is 575 meters in height with a fort and medieval settlement situated on top. It is a bit of a climb up to the top but the climb is well worth it, as beautiful panoramic views of the Corinthian valley are revealed. This mountain top fort is located at a strategic location in Corinth. The fort over looks land and sea and one can see why so many invaders such as the Romans, Ottomans, and Venetians took control over the site. In the 17th century, when the Ottomans had control over the site, Christians and Muslims lived together. There were churches and mosques at the site as well. The people felt safe on the site as they could defend themselves more easily against pirates that entered from sea nearby.

Snow capped mountains in Athens during a sudden snowfall this month after a period of  warm weather.

Χιονισμένα βουνά στην Αθήνα κατά τη διάρκεια μια ξαφνική χιονόπτωση αυτό το μήνα μετά από πολύ ζεστό καιρό.
