Aphrodite’s Rock, Cyprus / September 2017

Petra tou Romiou- birthplace of Aphrodite

Legend claims that Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love and beauty, was born from the sea-foam on this pebbly bay, which is dominated by rugged limestone crags rising from the sea. Other myths says these boulders were hurled at the ships of Saracen corsairs by Digenis Akritas, the paladin of the Byzantine frontier.

Evening Walk around village in Essex / April 2017

As we live in Saffron Walden, Essex, our walks always trace paths around village. One particular route we do as often as we can – 5 days a week goes around fields.

We usually pass little forest (or bushes if you wish), fields and a pond.

Yeasterday there was a time to test Hoya polarizer filter, I also had chance to capture moon 🙂

Every day is different as the weather, sky, sun, hence I have an opportunity to capture magical moments of nature:

Sagres – End of the (Old) World / May 2016

Sagres is a town in South Portugal, located on the most Southwestern point of Europe.

A place rich in history that began at a time when exploring the great unknown was a life-long pursuit. A place in which Henry the Navigator (responsible for initiating European world explorations) spent the remaining years of his life. Before his death (1394-1460), the great explorer stood atop these cliffs, arm outstretched to the sea, and proclaimed Sagres “the end of the [Old] World.” [HubPages, August 27, 2010.]

Sagres with its cliffs, strong winds, great waves and 16th century fortress (pt. Fortaleza de Sagres) ia an unique and awe-inspiring travel destination.
