My wife and I have visited the Greek islands on a regular basis since 1979 and have developed a deep affection for the people and their culture. Because we have visited the islands so many times now I have built up an extensive collection of images which I decided to develop and include a page on my website ( and to add new images and islands on a regular basis.

To date we have visited Crete (four times), Santorini (five times), Kephalonia, Rhodes, Kos, Cyprus (twice), Lesbos, Corfu, Skiathos, Naxos, Paros.
