After spending a week in Kefalonia, Greece I was hoping to capture a few underwater shots, but as it turns out a £10 camera cover doesn’t work very well. Instead I concentrated on what I know well and shot some landscape pics that I’m really proud of.
What I found really interesting about this small Island was that where ever we went, you could see the old houses before the terrible earthquake of the 1950’s. I couldn’t help stopping at every opportunity to capture what Kefalonia has left behind.

I couldn’t help but try get closer, after looking at this i decided that’s as close as I dare.
This Looked so grand from the road side.
This pre earth quake building was just as beautiful as the other new town Houses.
We had a great week travelling all over the Island from beautiful beaches to some amazing little Greek villages, my favourite moment happened on our 2nd to last day. A huge Loggerhead Turtle came into the harbor which we happened to be sun bathing near, so we decided to grab our snorkels and say hello. It was so majestic in the water – we swam around for about 15-20 minutes before it decided to take off into the open water. We found out after the swim it used to come into the harbor with another smaller Turtle every day, so I stayed around the next morning to get a few snaps on top of the water to show what he looked like.
I will keep this short and sweet and hope the shots speak for themselves. In a few days time I will upload my latest family portrait session.

Half way up the mountains in Kefalonia , we stopped to look over the valley. I tried to use the track as the leading line in to the picture.

As the only pitch black part of the resort , I love this picture as the boat is the only light coming to the camera
