Storm at Little Venice, Mykonos

    This photo is taken at Alefkandra (or better known as Little Venice), on the island of Mykonos, in the Greek Cyclades. The buildings, which now contain restaurants, bars and souvenir shops, are built right upto the sea. It is thought that they were built this way during the time of pirates so that goods could be quickly loaded and unloaded.

    We got stuck in Mykonos for two days due to gales in the Aegean. Made for some pretty dramatic photo opps (plus plenty of salt spray covering the camera!)

      You spent two days trying to get out of there. We spent two days trying to get there and finally abandoned our sailboat at Paros and took a ferry. It was a funky little location, great shot of it.
