Nafplion (Modern Greek: Ναύπλιο, Nafplio) or Nauplion (Greek: Ναύπλιων, Naupliōn) is a seaport town in the Peloponnese in Greece that has expanded up the hillsides near the north end of the Argolic Gulf. The town was the first capital of modern Greece, from 1829 to 1834. Nafplion is situated on the Argolic Gulf in the northeast Peloponnese. Most of the old town is on a peninsula jutting into the gulf; this peninsula forms a naturally protected bay that is enhanced by the addition of man-made moles. The area surrounding Nafplion has been inhabited since ancient times though little sign of this remains within the town. The town has been a stronghold at several times in history.


I still remember the morning I took this shot. I remember how much I wanted to stay in bed and enjoy lazy morning but as soon as I've seen the fog forming above the sea, I forced myself to go out. I had to find some point of interest and was pleased to find these wooden sticks in the water. Photography can sometimes be really demanding, especially for the morning shoot. Well no sleep tomorrow, already planning to go out at 3.45am for the morning blue hour (or blue 15 minutes here in Middle East)
