A beautiful picture from the talented photographer Theofilos. Spring in Crete, with blossoming flowers and a cloudy but not menacing sky. Just as spring in Crete which starts right after February, with many sunny days that interchange with cold and cloudy days .

Crete, Greece by J. Kern

The title “Crete, Greece” in this picture might be very generic, but it’s actually absolutely right. Is there a more characteristic image from the blue sky, the tower of a church and the blossomed bougainvillea that we see in many areas in Greece ;

The sun that sinks and shines like a light sphere, just before it hides behind the mountain. A simple picture which attracts our attention with the orange nuances of sunset and the intense antithesis with the mountain black.

Morning in Plakias in Crete by CzechR

The sun has just risen in south Crete and illuminates the first houses on the beach of Plakias. Judging by the cloudy sky the picture is not taken during summer time. A beautiful picture that could have been a painting.

The Venetian lighthouse in Rethymnon by Theophilos

One of the most photographed sites in Crete is the Venetian lighthouse in Rethymnon, which is impressed here on an impressive and unusual picture thanks to the creative eye of Theofilos.

What can someone write about this remarkable picture? It is a very simple but very smart idea, with an impeccable technique that created this touching result. This is a picture that makes us Cretans particularly proud, because this island inspired the photographer.

    On the pathway
    a dry leaf and

  2. In the sound of a stream.

    The whisper
    of a fugitive bird
    covers the sadness
    placed near an
    hedge while the
    delicate singing
    describes an
    attraction full of
    happiness: and
    there, near the
    sound of a stream,
    a white dream
