some occasional pho'graphs and thoughts on photography

Hydra walk to Monastery Prophet Elijah

The highest peak in Hydra has a monastery named after the Prophet Elijah (Προφήτης Ηλίας).

The walk takes about 1 hour 30 minutes and is not really tiring (though even at Easter time this is enough for a good sunburn).

At the top, along with the monastery proper, there is a wonderful viewing area with a solitary chair.

One imagines the monks watching the sunset and seeking solace in the beauty of all things.
