Sunrise in Chania and a morning visit to the market

August 27, 2020  •  4 Comments

Once again, Laurie and I were up early to photograph sunsrise  in the harbour.

We never got the dramatic clouds but it was still a very photogenic scene worth getting up for.

After watching the sun come up, we made our way back to the hotel.

We visited the local market.

This market had all kinds of wonderful food and other items to purchase.  Markets are always great places to people watch and photograph.

Olives are very popular in Greece.

It was pretty busy with the locals doing their shopping.

This vendor was happy for us to take her photograph.  The people in Greece were very friendly and very likely to pose for us when we asked if it was ok to take their photographs.



Markets are definitely one of the most interesting places to visit.

All the beautiful people: happy, thriving, working, serving, LIVING!
Great shots of the people of Crete. it reminded me that there is so much to photograph beyond the scenery when visiting foreign country. But i did really love how you captured the reflections in the harbour waters. I bet with Covid you are really missing the planning of future trips as are we. We cancelled two trips for this past spring and summer and have not made any plans to return to our home in Florida any time soon. But we are glad to be here in Canada and be as safe as we all are here, compared to most other places in the world.
