*** 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 photo is a view over the area where the houses were situated. Beautiful column lined roads separated the blocks of houses.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 100 75 mm

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

Always so remarkable how the lost building retains such 'presence'.
