Another holiday snap. Around the village we stayed in, photography opportunities were limited. So were the sunsets as there were hardly any clouds in the sky! This was an abandoned fig orchard between the old centre and the modern villa area where we were staying. There were still fig, olive and carob trees fruiting. Clearly the ground had been spectacular with flowers in the spring but by summer they were just very dry and very prickly seed heads. My wife and I found someones hidden marjuhana plant while exploring this area during the day!
Attached to, and slowly eating into the orchard was the exquisite town cemetery. V2 shows the gates and V3 the interior. A lot of love and attention and ceremony going on there and a friendly attendent who didn't mind us taking photos.
