Unfathomable beauty. I have never seen water so blue, and such beautiful surroundings.

Do you live near here, or were you visiting?

Regardless, it is so wonderful.

Excellent composition, and a perfect shot of such a magnificent place.

Kind regards,

Mary Alice

Dear MaryAlice? I don't live here unfortunatly. I took this picture on a holiday in Cyprus where the weather is much warmer than in Belgium.

There is a legend that says that here on these rocks, the very beautiful Aphrodite, Greek godess of love, was born out of the sea. That makes this place even more beautiful than it only looks. This is also the explanation why this photo has made such an impression to you.

Sweet greetings and a happy haloween,

  • Lovely place, indeed.
  • And --> this, how it looks from the other side 2 years and 3½ hours later. I remember it was terribly hot at that day.
Bart Aerts on February 9, 2009

I'm glad the rock still stays there, even after 2 years ;-) It was also hot when I was there but a slight wind comming from the sea made id cofortable. Greetings, Bart.

Muchas gracias, Claudio por su commentarios. Saludos, Bart. Thank you Lloyd, it is a great place. There's a legend which says that Aphrodite, the Greek godess of beauty and love is born there, out of the see. I come to take a look soon. Cheers, Bart.
