A magical seaside Mediterranean village located on the southern part of Greece "Peloponnese". I had the honour to spend 3 months at a time every summer on Greek summer school break every year for half my youth life.
This photo was taken from the historic castle which was used to gather all the Greeks together at the time of the Ottoman Empire as it was impossible to reach and always became a base of victory each and every time unwanted intruders attempted to take over.
I am blessed as my family has property here making my visits more frequent and also making it a great opportunity to show my daughter where she half came from.
A location that is truly magical filled with the best youthful memories.
I M E R O V I G L I. I launched my Mavic Pro off this hidden little church which was practically situated on the edge of a mountain. This video will eventually be deleted however I wanted to show you all how amazing this island really is.
I haven't had much time post processing however this is a quick snap with my 70-200 GM on my a7rii. I was contemplating on brink going this lens however I have no regrets at all and from now on it will be an essential ingredient in my bag.
This town is situated at the highest point of the island and is known for the best sunsets in the world.
Been surrounded by this magical place and looking out as far as I can into the horizon whilst the sun starts to fall asleep in front of me is the very reason I call this place Heaven on Earth.
I feel connected and synchronised with the mother land and most importantly I am proud of my identity.

This temple was dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena.
She was the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.
This location is infested with fantastic natural foreground formations.
In this particular image I used the Nisi 6 stop ND filter which allowed me to slow the shutter speed making the obvious surrounding sea water smooth and silky.
For the sky I took an additional photo however I also added the 3 stop Hard Graduated filter which allowed me to darken the sky ultimately making this blended photo balanced well.
