For an unknown reason, recently this photo has become the most viewed one from
my photostream at Flickr.

Summer is a vacation time, and people seem to search for
sea, beach, wave, and … Greece
By the way, I am in Greece according to many location service :)) I wish I were there.
I took this photo last year when we were
During my family vacation at Crete in Louis Creta Princess hotel this year, I tried to share my impressions without putting off. Almost all the photos above have a short description of what I saw and where I was.

I liked to keep a photo-diary like this, preserving the freshest impressions, while they are brightest.

Saying “bye” to this hotel… It was a wonderful vacation! These two weeks have passed by like an instant…
Summer does not end in several days for us: we’re flying to Crete island. We’ll live near Chania. There will be hot sun, caressing warm sea, warm sand and beautiful sunrises.
It was sunrise at Crete in 2010.
I apologize for being quiet for so long.
It started with vacation. Then I returned back to work, and traffic jams stop me from getting home earlier so that I have enough time to sort out photos and write blog posts.
Anyway, here’s a summary of where I was during my vacation.

That day, on July 31, for the second time I was late for taking pictures of the setting sun: It had hidden beyond the forest.
Yet the colors of the clouds were amazing: from pink, orange to violet. At the same time the sky changed its color from pink to bright blue.
It was chilly, nevertheless I swam in the lake after shooting. It felt so great although the water was also cold.
I am now traveling in Finland. In Helsinki I found a place – the Winter Garden – full of roses.
