Latest News
Greek images has been going for many years and it is now time for a major overhaul and redesign. This is underway and will be going live in a few weeks. The main change will be to make it mobile-friendly. I will also be enlarging and improving the quality of some of the older images as well as adding some more scanned transparencies. Of course, more images will continue to be added from our future Greek travels!

We are returning to Serifos in 2016, as well as Milos (for the first time in 18 years!).
All islands and mainland locations now have a link to Google Maps so you can see where they are. Links page updated March 2015.

Featured Image - Santorini

With my Greek photography I have tried to convey something of the essence of the different places that we have visited, including the wildlife. Hopefully you will find the images are either informative, artistic, or entertaining. I didn't want to just show the traditional views of all villages and beaches - most of the islands have their own web sites that show this sort of thing.

If you enjoy what you see and would like me to add a link to your web site, please e-mail me with details. I will generally be happy to do this on a reciprocal basis.

Any comments on the photos or the site in general would be welcome.

Technical Stuff
I had been keeping a record of our travels, initially using a Minolta X300 SLR and later a 700si, using Fuji slide film. A few years ago it occured to me that it would be fun, if somewhat time consuming, to get some of these images into digital format and post them on the web. So I acquired a high resolution film scanner and the idea for Greek Images was born. It has developed a lot since then, with new locations being added, and new facilities, such as the links to Google Maps. I now use a Nikon D7000, and Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 lens.

All photographs are strictly copyright and may not be reproduced in any form without permission. However, I am generally happy for them to be used on other web sites as long as a link is provided back to Greek Images. But please ask first.

Independent Travelling in Greece

The weather is usually at its best, ie not too hot, in June and September, when places are rarely crowded, and you can always find accommodation. The secret to getting the most out of a Greek holiday is to look on the journey and transfers as all part of the experience. It is a state of mind and we always say our holiday starts as soon as we walk out of our front door in England. This attitude is summed up beautifully in the poem 'Ithaca', by C P Cavafy. Translated by Rae Dalven.
