So the bloody internet has been down for hours. I should have posted when I was thinking about it but no I thought I would leave it until late as usual. Sat here fiddling with images happy as Larry thinking, I'll post soon when all the time the web was crashing around my ears! It's blowing a gale here so perhaps there are telephone cable issues...god knows. By the time I get this up the text above will almost be irrelevant as I will have posted but...well you know what I mean. I guess I could have an early night but I am past that also as I have been sat here with my thumb up my ass waiting for it to return. Ah the Internet is a wicked mistress at times!

So the photo is from the same place as yesterday, the derelict windmills at Fourni (Φουρνή). Taken at different times, this one from my most recent trip there. I love to visit these windmills in the different seasons when the sun is at different elevations and the vegetation at varying degrees of life and death. This trip it was at an inconveniently low angle. What with the mills being so high I seemed to be constantly shooting right into the sun. The light is harsher in the summer but at least it is high and out of the way. Anyhow here is a little aerial view of the area. If you look carefully on the map it appears as if there were 13 or so there at one stage. Have a pan out and a browse about.....the two villages to the south of the windmills are Kastelli(Καστέλλι) and Fourni(Φουρνή).
