Wintry Reflection - Jackobo's Photoblog
The water of the lagoon reflects the snowy peaks of the Tzoumerka mountain range; a wintry reflection! Bright sun, no wind and a clear atmosphere. The reflection of the mountains in the perfectly still water create an excellent landscape photograph.

Waves Breaking - Jackobo's Photoblog
Waves breaking onto the rocky shore, as a storm is approaching the land. I made this photo at Neo Oitilo, in Mani. It is a photograph that I made into square format. Unusual for a landscape but in this case, it works!
