ΛΟΥΞurious view

This is a view to the Patras bay from a local road Rio - Ano Kastritsi. I've stopped to take a panoramic photo and only later realized that there was a bottle of LUX soda (local Patras brand) in the small reliquary by the road.

from the top

Today some landscape photos taken "from the top". First one is my village, Agios Vassileios, seen from the top of the nearby hill, close to the church of Ag Giorgios of Drepano. I took it during mtb ride around hills of Rion - my favorite bike destination.

The second one is Platani, just above Agios Vassileios, taken during the very same ride.
I will be moving soon to the city and these photos will be my souvenirs :-D

Both taken with my new "compact" pockatable camera, Olympus XZ-2, bought exactly for this purpose, a bicycle ride or hiking trip.
