The best time to enjoy Greek islands has to be May in my opinion. Near perfect temperature & uncrowded beaches are more than enough good reasons. First time I visited Kefalonia, not long ago, I couldn’t really enjoy much as it was constantly raining. This time though, I did enjoy the sea and the gorgeous nature. As this island is quite big and has so many places to explore, a weekend is far from sufficient but already planning my return.
So after returning to Athens from a fantastic week on Kythera, I just had enough time to wash some clothes and embark on a journey to the south Aegean. My first stop would be Karpathos. An amazing island with fantastic beaches, picturesque villages keeping strong traditions, delicious food and super friendly people! Here you can see all the non iPhone shots, taken with the dslr, which is not really easy to carry around all the time.

This weekend was rather weird. Monday was a non working day for most so all my friends had left the city for an island. And I was left in Athens. Luckily Efi was in town as well so we thought we deserved a small beach exploration and above all a swim.
I spent my Easter holidays in the same place I have been doing so in the last few years. And it’s the beautiful island of Kythera, a really special place for me. Weather didn’t help much for landscape photography as it had been very dull and grey, with some moments of exception. I tried to get the most out of that!
As an obsessive person that I am, I keep returning to the same places over and over. This long weekend I decided that it would be ideal to travel to Mani. Again.
Kalamata is my hometown and the city I grew up in. Therefore it’s a special place for me and I try to visit as often as I can. I sometimes enjoy long exposure photography and the seafront is ideal for this type of shooting.
A great location for landscape photography but also for trekking in nature. Just two hours drive from Athens, this little artificial lake is a real gem. My last visit was with my friend and landscape photographer Kostas.
