Storm over Kadamili

Uploaded by: Granddad

Wednesday September 29, 2010

Kalamata, Greece

Caption: My younger daughter and family are on holiday with us at the moment and, of course, the weather has to demonstrate just who is in charge! However, this morning there isn't a cloud in the sky and I am sure they will all go swimming. This view of the acropolis at Kardamili shows both how parched the land is at the end of summer in Greece and how the weather can change instantly at this time of year.

Thank you for all your kind comments. The trees are olive trees, probably a couple of hundred years old. They get to be that shape because they are pruned every year to allow the air to circulate in the branches as they depend on air circulation for pollination.

About Granddad

Granddad

We are English, (except our dogs, who are definitely very Greek, having been abandoned strays who took us in out of the kindness of their hearts). We retired to Greece in 2003 to escape the phoney political correctness endemic throughout the Anglo-Saxon world and to mix with some real people again. We live in the Exo-Mani in the extreme South of the Peloponnesus, where the sea and countryside are beautiful and the weather is also less political (i.e. they don't tax sunshine yet). The site provides an opportunity for us to bore the whole world with our snapshots and for which we are duly grateful.
