Some advice for the travel photographers out there for visiting Greece: Undoubtedly the whitewashed homes of Mykonos and the views of Santorini have been the perennial favorites to represent this country in magazines, calendars and posters.
Greece however has over 6,000 islands and islets scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Sea and 16,000kms of coastline! And don’t forget, the mainland has hundreds of bays, and coves, and coastal towns all waiting to be photographed!
If you have the time, make sure you visit some of the islands of the beaten path such as Agistri, a short ride from Athens, Ios, Antros, Astypalea, Amorgos to name a few. Don’t forget coastal towns such a Nafplio the former capital of Greece after it gained its independence from the Ottoman Empire, Gytheio, and more.
Hi Pavlos - you have lovely shots of Greece. I'm just glad that in the early 1980s I was able to get out to Athens and then go island hopping (yes, Santorini, Mykonos, but also Naxos, Ios & Kos amongst others) before tourist commercialisation overtook the world - you are right, all of the Greek islands have something to recommend them, and getting off the beaten tourist track lets us have a truly Greek experience. Hopefully some day I will be able to return and visit new areas.
