Due to time pressures it took special effort to get to Delphi on our recent trip to Greece, but it was certainly worth it.

Much-photographed places like Meteora always throw up a challenge - how can I possibly offer any new perspectives? Plus weather wasn't ideal. Anyway, enough…

OK, so you may have thought this was a photo of the famous theatre at Epidaurus, Greece. I can certainly understand how you reached that conclusion.
