A most rewarding experience after a hectic year landed me on the island of Serifos in the Kyclades Archipelago. A number of barren islands with a wonderful light and colors and certainly a favorite holiday destination almost year round. I stayed in Megalo Livadi (The Big Meadow) formerly a miners’ settlement, as the place was a huge mine. In the foto you can see the old bridge where they loaded boats with iron ore. In 1916 was the first strike in Greece that ended in the death of four miners. The mine closed down in the 60’s, if I’m not mistaken, and Megalo Livadi is still property of the Company. There’s only a few houses all small but very functional. It features a couple of nice taverns, with Marditsa’s being the best. We lad all these local delicacies generously escorted by the local wine and fresh fish at quite reasonable prices. I have attached some more information from Wikipedia (English
, Greek)

This is dedicated to the all the miners of the world, those that risk their lives and rarely see the sun... and my friend on TL bracasha75

In the WS there’s a couple more from Megalo Livadi

Merhaba Argiris

Superb graphism & silhouettes in this marvellous sunset, with good colour contrasts between the blue & orange. Tfs!

This is awesome Argiris.

Mmmm Serifos,

You make it look and sound very appealing Argiris!
Would not mind visiting that tavern and have a glass of wine while enjoying stunning views like this.

Hope you are all relaxed and that your batteries are recharged.

TFS these three shots at once, Argiris. My favourite among them is the sunset with the bridge, although the one you posted here is very beautiful too. The rocks are nicely silhouetted, for me it's not the sun that steals the show here, but the cloud layer against that nice blue gradient in the sky.
TFS, and for the dedication to the miners of our world.
