Off Season Photo Moments Pt.2

Frangokastello fortess
Follow Kallikratis' snake shaped road (see photo in older post) to get a view of the Frangokastello plain. In this photo, apart from the famous Frangokastello fortress, you can also notice Monachus Monachus Apartments.

Lakki beach
It is only a few minutes drive from Frangokastello. The amazing thing was that there were three different sets of rock in the sea and each one of them was home to a different type of birds. The first and closest one was occupied by rock doves, the middle by herring gulls and the third one by adult and juvenile shags (the one in this photo).

Kotsifou gorge
On the way to Rethymno between the villages of Selia and Mirthios

Lake Kournas
The only freshwater lake in Crete. It is located close to Georgioupoli and accommodates ducks, eels and water snakes.

Venetian Lighthouse
Old town of Chania.

Mosque of Kioutsouk Hassan-Giali Tzamisi

Blooming almond tree.
Almond trees do not get noticed until it is spring and suddenly the whole place is filled with their blossoms.

White Mountains
Cloudy afternoon.
