Picture Greece - blue and white sun-baked islands. So much of that picture is captured on a single postcard - a white chapel on a clear blue sky.What about looking at Greece in other colours and through different eyes? Greece protected from mass-tourism? Greece off the beaten track? "Greece Through the Seasons" shows us the country in a different light, in which we discover many unsuspected treasures...On the Pelion Mountain, Autumn transforms the landscape into an explosion of colour: yellow, brown and mahogany invade the forest right down to the sea. In the Peloponnese, the snowy tops of the Cyllene Mountains are reflected in the Stymphale lake. Armogos island, almost desert like in the summer, becomes blue thistles, poppies and multicoloured euphorbias.Due to its crumbling land, Greece' diversity is staggering. Beyond its wide-open coasts, the country is mostly mountains. These mountains cover two thirds of a landscape, with towering cliffs, deep ravines, raging rivers and countless islands. As the seasons go by, these landscapes never cease to transform themselves."Greece Through the Seasons" imortalises these everchanging seasons into a fantastic selection of photographs.
The aim of the book is to surprise, to amaze and to make you dream over 200 photographs. This trip is based on the experience of the two reporters, who have been living on the Egine Island since 2004 and often incorporate stories into their captions.
