Skywatch Friday: The old harbour of Chania


It's SkyWatch Friday again and today's weather is calm, breezy and mild.

Anyone for coffee? What about an ice-cream or a fizzy drink? Maybe just a souvenir? The beautiful old port of Hania is calling out to passersby, tempting them into it with its calm waters. The dome of the former mosque is barely visible behind the open white umbrellas.

  1. Wow. This is a stunning photograph and quite beautiful. Enlarged or larger, if clicked, is even more impressive and you can see the former mosque quite well. Nice photography.

    And, by the way, thank you for such generous comments on my blog. I do so much appreciate it.

  2. This must be an early morning photo it is so quiet. Very busy when we were there and the fountain was playing. I think we sat in those chairs on the left one evening waiting for our taxi to pick up us.

  3. What a view you have for Sky Watch.. thank you.
    I do like the quietness of an area before the crowds arrive.. it gives you more time to take in what is set out before you.
    Thank you for joining in with Sky Watch and helping it along with your picture.
