During a recent trip to Greece I spent a few hours in the ancient town of Monemvasia. The afternoon light was fantastic, and provided both strong contrast for the buildings and a delicate open shade illumination for the delicate flowers.
The island of Monemvasia, a large rock separated from the mainland by an earthquake in 375 AD, was ruled in the past by the Byzantine, Venetian and the Ottoman empires. Now is a pretty tourist town which I strongly recommend to visit if you are exploring the Peloponnesian peninsula.
Clicking on any of the images will take you to a gallery of photos in my Photoshelter Website. The gallery also has photos from nearby Mystras, also worth a visit.
Let me know if you have been or want to go to this part of Greece!
