Photographer's Note

This is Karavostasis, the small village and harbour of Folegandros. There is no "trick" in Photoshop, it's the real thing just a slight increase of contrast and saturation. Let me explain:

The days that I stayed in Serifos and Folegandros (or most of the them) the whole country was covered by a thick layer of red african dust due to south winds. Certainly not the ideal conditions for taking photos. The first 3 days in Serifos I didn't take more than 10 pictures. Then a north wind started to blow clearing the atmosphere for 2 days, giving me the opportunity to do my job.

When I went to Folegandros, the south winds started to blow again, more calm this time, the atmosphere got "heavy" once again, thank God, not that bad as it was on the first days of my stay in Serifos.

Then on the 3rd and last day in Folegandros, this strange thing happened. I had not seen anything like this before in the Greek islands. A cloud was flying right above sea level, and then like a serpent started to embrace the island following each and every mountain, hill, cliff and valey.
