Behind the Lens
I took this photograph after having had a wonderful lunch with some good friends in Cephalonia, one of the seven Ionian Islands in Greece. As I was driving down toward the island’s capital city, Argostoli, I was taken aback by the natural splendor in front of my eyes. I quickly pulled over onto the side of the road, stepped out of the car and took the shot.
It was late afternoon as we had a long, relaxing lunch.
The light, all natural, is unique to Greece. Painters, poets, artists, photographers and filmmakers flock to Greece for this reason.
I used a Fuji camera. No tripod. Hand held.
I was overwhelmed by the majesty of the sun’s rays falling onto the Ionian Sea. It was so beautiful that it took my breath away!

My camera and battery.
I would highly recommend visiting Cephalonia. This beautiful island, the home of the poet Byron, was listed by Forbes as one of the top places to live in Europe.
