Above the Temple of Hera Akiaia
In the shadow of the cliffs where Medea killed Jason's children, I sit in a sheltered cave, the Bay of Corinth sounds below me, with winds rushing across the rock face, hearing haunting moans. The waves break on the shore down the cliff face, near the Temple of Hera.
Delphi is apparently directly across from us, but the day's haze has made it hard to see. This cave I'm in is away from the sun and the wind, but is plesantly fresh from the sea air and the noise of the waves.
Quiet, relaxing, and full of amazing things. . . I could sit for a long time here, watching the sun dance over the waves, listening to the sea and the winds.
But there are temples to see.

Somehow, seeing a person in the frame makes everything else stand out more. Like, it's actually real or something. ;)
(Which doesn't end the "No people!/Always People!" argument b/w me and samildanach
about travel photography by a long shot, but it is interesting to note. . . .)
those are just....amazing.
I've been following all your Greece reports with interest. Rarely get a chance to comment before the comment ticker hits 50, though. ;-)
That photo of mazisexton
is one of the best photos I have seen in my life, ever.
