Photographer's Note

This is a shot from the Kourtaliwtiko Canyon, which is situated in South Crete and is leading to the beautiful Preveli beach which you can see here: http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/Greece/photo197718.htm.

The name kourtaliwtiko was given to this canyon because of the sound of the wind which makes the sound of a rattlesnake (in greek Krotalias). There is running water far down which runs towards the sea and is of course really really cold. There is much water even in late August and there are some places which the water is swimmable for those who dare!!!
