Green Blue Sea Waters Against White Cloud Formations

Green Blue Sea Waters at Skala Kefalonia I

Sitting on the 7 km long sandy beach of Skala* one early August afternoon, I soothed my gaze into the deep green and blue waters of the Ionian Sea. The contrasty bright white cloud formations gathering above the mainland were a great incentive to let my laziness go and reach for my camera.
