Asvesti

By Scutter
At Easter Greek villagers paint their steps and pavements (as well as their citrus tree trunks) with asvesti (lime wash - yes it is caustic!). Some patterns are quite intricate this shot shows some evidence of haste! The painting has to be completed before Easter Day so there is a flurry of daubing during the preceding week.

Wonderful shot - love the foreground and the way your eye goes out to the beautiful blue sky. Stunning.
