Paleokastritsa - Corfu Island - Greece









information here : http://www.paleokastritsaholidays.com/history.html

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.
And no-one called us to the land
And no-one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no-one calls us to move on
And no-one forces down our eyes
And no-one speaks and no-one tries
And no-one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky
(Echoes - Pink Floyd -  Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, David Gilmour)

Wind:

I wonder -- were you as the artist inspired by the muse inside you who see's so clearly through your camera lens, the clouds -- cover you in the notes of Pink Floyds lyrical composition?

When I listen to the music it breathes new inspiration into the clouds you photographed.

Mystically enchanting - in a soulful way.

Wind:

The lighting in these photographs are phenomenal, the subtle hings of deep blues and shafts of light give the photos an ethereal quality.
Stunning.

Pur si simplu ma imbolnavesti! As vrea sa fie pozele mele! Merita sa stai pe ploaie o saptamana pentru niste poze ca astea.
