Nafplio by night

25 Pin99 Ακόλουθοι
There's no better place for superb night photos than Nafplio. Do you have a tripod? Get it out, set it where you can get a good view of Palamidi, Bourtzi or any of the lively or peaceful alleys in the old city of Nafplio and shoot... Just one rule: any use of flash is strictly forbidden...
This one really caught my attention as I was looking for superb photos of Nafplio to pin on my boards. I followed the link and guess what... another photo by Hercules Milas (16 March 2009). Extra credit to Hercules for this one because on his note he says that he actually climbed the stairs to the top of Palamidi twice on that same day to take two of the most magnificent photos of Nafplio I have come across on the web.

Hercules Milas shot this fabulous photo titled 'Sleepless guard' on 10 July 2006. Notice "Larisa" on the left, the castle overlooking Argos, just 10 km from Nafplio.

The main road leading to Syntagma Square in Nafplio. The closest you can get to the sense of being on a Greek island without ever getting on a boat.

Nafplio in the mist. The mist effect is created by the seed-oil plants only a short distance away from the old town of Nafplio.

It pays to have a tripod and a compact camera handy at all times.... #Nafplio's city tour train leaving base while the town was plunged into total darkness on August 16th 2014. #Peloponnese - #Greece
