*** NEW SERIES ***

Come with me on a tour of the fabulous ruins of Olympia found in Greece. Olympia, as the name suggests, was the site of the original Olympic Games. They were held every 4 years from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD in honour of the god Zeus. (More info on Wikipedia)

This is a photo of the Palaistra (3rd century B.C.)

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/160 second F/6.3 ISO 100 73 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
