Στην ακρογιαλιά

Elaia beach. Messenia, Peloponnese, Greece

There’s a magnetism that attracts people towards the beach. A sense of peace, calmness , a state of unity and satisfaction with life in the moment. This innate relationship with the sea reaches far back to the roots of our origin. 

Το χρώμα της Θάλασσας

Sunrise light on the Messenian gulf as seen from Peroulia village. Messenia, Peloponnese, Greece

The sea color is a complicated matter. Water reflects light very differently from typical terrestrial materials. The reflectivity of water is very low at low and medium angles of incident light and very high at high angles of incident light (sunrise, sunset). Water is also transparent to light.

Τοπία νερού

In Greek Mythology in Stymphalia lake lived the Stymphalian birds, man-eating birds with beaks of bronze and sharp metallic feathers they could launch at their victims. They were pets of Ares, the god of war. Heracles in his sixth labor shot them with his poisoned arrows. Corinthia, Pelopponese, Greece

Snow, ice, fog, clouds, rain, rivers, waterfalls, lakes, waves. All are forms of the most omnipresent substance on Earth: water. Its reaction with light is diverse. It can be transparent, translucent or opaque and it can cause diffuse or specular reflection. Humans are inspired by water, in fact they consist mostly of water themselves.

The Aghia Eirini (Saint Irene) monastery at Cape Malea. Laconia, Peloponnese

Maleas means noise, clamor. It’s a cape that causes fear and terror to sailors and is considered amongst the most dangerous capes across the Mediterranean. Cape Maleas or Cavo Malias greatly inspired writers since the dawn of history and literature. Homer (Odyssey), Euripides (Cyclops, Helen, Orestes), Diodorus Siculus (Library), Titus Livius (The History of Rome), Herodotus,… Συνεχίστε να διαβάζετε το Εξόρμηση στον Κάβο Μαλιά

Elafonisos, meaning “the island of deers”, was an important hunting place in the ancient times. Small red deers used to live there.  The ancient traveler Pausanias, reported Elafonisos as a peninsula. He also noted there were many sanctuaries in the area devoted to the goddess of hunting, Artemis.

Spring is the perfect season for exploring Peloponnese. During the last week of March, we visited Kotronas, a seaside village at eastern Mani. It was a wonderful experience. Wild flowers, clear blue sky, warm weather.

Εξόρμηση στο Φράγκικο Κάστρο της Ωριάς

The main tower wall at Orea's Castle. Kynouria, Arcadia, Peloponnese

The Frankish princess welcomed the sun rising over the Argolic gulf every morning. Her castle, built on top of the hill, offered a panoramic view of the area. She could see as far as the shores of Argolis and the island of Spetses. She could feel the chilly air coming from the fir wood of… Συνεχίστε να διαβάζετε το Εξόρμηση στο Φράγκικο Κάστρο της Ωριάς

Η Πελοπόννησος

Sunrise light on the Messenian gulf as seen from Peroulia village. Messenia, Peloponnese, Greece

The spirit of a place is more or less what the observer effect reflects upon it. This is especially true for the Peloponnese, where an uninterrupted human activity for millenia, has left the marks of man’s eternal struggle for survival and for understanding the world. Quite often in vain! Introducing the Peloponnese (also Peloponnesos) Peloponnesos means… Συνεχίστε να διαβάζετε το Η Πελοπόννησος
