Aegina, Greece: Pistachios, Emerald Valleys And The Crumbling Ruins

Aegina, Greece: Pistachios, Emerald Valleys And The Crumbling Ruins | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
The captivating island of Aegina is located in the Argo-Saronic gulf, close to the port of Pireaus on the mainland and is a part of the Saronic Islands. The moon crescent harbor is filled with fishing boats and glamorous yachts. Sparkling waters of the gulf stand as a perfect background for the archaic ruins and quaint villages.

Explorers can have an interesting time in the emerald valleys and the crumbling ruins of an entire village, which was deserted many centuries ago.

The capital town of this island is full of fine neoclassical buildings and narrow alleys. The beautiful and picturesque island has many traditional villages on the mountains or close to the sea.

The #Peloponnese in #Greece is the best place in #Europe to visit in 2016, says Lonely Planet

The #Peloponnese in #Greece is the best place in #Europe to visit in 2016, says Lonely Planet | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
Travel guide publisher Lonely Planet has released its annual list of the best places to visit in Europe, this year opting for a mix of the usual suspects (Venice, the Dordogne) and a scattering of off-the-beaten track places such as the Dutch island of Texel.

Topping the list is the the Peloponnese, a region often overlooked by travellers to Greece, who tend to visit the islands or build a sightseeing trip around Athen’s iconic Acropolis.

The region is described as “an affordable enclave of magnificent ancient sights like Olympia, Mycenae and Mystra”. The recently opened Menalon trail provides a new way to explore the region, which is popular with hikers.

#Santorini’s Mystique Voted Among 5 #Best #Resort Hotels of #Greece 

#Santorini’s Mystique Voted Among 5 #Best #Resort Hotels of #Greece  | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
Mystique, a Luxury Collection Hotel, located on Santorini, is among the 5 Best Resort Hotels of Greece, according to readers of Travel+Leisure. The publication asked its readers, who are worldwide travellers, to share their travel experiences, rate cities, islands, hotels and more and vote for the ones they consider top in their category.

“Its easy to see why travellers love the Greek isles, with their whitewashed villlas, enticing beaches, and cerulean waters. That’s some serious scenery for the region’s hotels to live up to – but they do”, writer Lindsey Olander observes. “In the hotels category, readers rated properties on their rooms and facilities, location, service, food and drink, and overall value”, she further explains.

Northumberland National Park - England's Most Tranquil Location celebrates 60 years

Northumberland National Park - England's Most Tranquil Location celebrates 60 years | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
Earlier this year the Northumberland National Park celebrated 60 years since it's formation and as the only National Park I have not spent any time exploring I was determined to visit this year. Northumberland is known as England's Secret Kingdom and it's National Park is situated to the west of the county, sandwiched between Scotland to the North and West, the rest of Northumberland to the East and Hadrian's Wall to the South. There are around 405 square miles of superb wilderness within the National Park to explore and I had only a few days to make the most of it. The landscape is an outstanding mix of high hills, dales and crystal clear rivers and, not forgetting, the magnificent Kielder Water - Northern Europe's biggest man made lake. Within the Park the population is less than 2.5 people per square mile, but when you consider that most live in the small villages dotted around the Park, you really can get away from it all. Northumberland's National Park is officially England's most tranquil location.
Having visited the best of Hadrian's Wall before I decided on this occasion to go straight to my first stopover at Bellingham. Arriving late afternoon and a pleasant evening in prospect I decided to take the 3 mile round magical walk over six bridges to Hareshaw Linn, a 30 foot high waterfall set in fantastic ancient woodland at the head of Hareshaw Dene. Here the Hareshaw Burn plunges over a band of resistant sandstone overlying softer shales. The waterfall erodes the shales and undercuts the harder rocks which collapse in blocks allowing the flowing water to display creative cascades.



The following day I made my way to Kielder with the largest working forest in England at over 250 square miles. Parking at Leaplish Waterside Park my plan was to walk round the Bull Crag Peninsula hoping to find good photo opportunities of the Water

Scotland's Beautiful Borders

Scotland's Beautiful Borders | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
For those of you who may have read about my trip to the Northumberland National Park you will be aware that from there I travelled into the Scottish Borders for a few days. My original intention was to stay in the more central location of Melrose but due to the lack of availability of space on my favoured campsite I had to stay in Jedburgh - not that there is anything wrong with Jedburgh, it just meant I had slightly more travelling each day to my intended photo spots.
Lying just south of Melrose and found within the Tweed Valley are the triple peaks of the Eildon Hills, a prominent feature in the Scottish Borders and my first walk and photo location. Formed around 350 million years ago, the hills are made of volcanic rock and surrounded by softer sedimentary rocks that have eroded to leave the hills we see now.
One of the most photographed locations in the Scottish Borders is Scott's View of the Eildon Hills. Named after the poet, playwright and novelist Sir Walter Scott this was his favourite view when he lived at Abbotsford House.



Having taken in the famous view of the hills I wanted to get close up and hit the summits. During my research of the area I came across Bowdenmoor reservoir which lies a couple of miles south west of Melrose where access to the hills can be gained without following everyone else up the traditional walking routes from Melrose. On arrival I was greeted by a raft of water lilies covering the water, an attractive fringe of woodland and a lovely view of the Eildon Hills which all combine to great effect.



Although many of the lilies where still not open a combination of the open and partly open ones set against the smooth and sometimes breeze affected water gave me an opportunity to add to my Intimate Landscapes Collection.



All of the walking routes I had with me started from Melrose so starting at Bowdenmoor and not knowing the area I was immediately at a disadvantage as to the best route to take up to the hill summits

Samos Island, Greece: Let The Nature Impress You

Samos Island, Greece: Let The Nature Impress You | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
Samos is an impressively green island with verdant mountains, crowded beaches, secluded coves, picturesque villages, busy resorts, intensive nightlife and peaceful places. Even though it’s one of the most visited islands of the Aegean Islands, it has retained its beauty and calm spots away from the crowds.

It is a part of the north-eastern Aegean Islands and is separated from the Turkish coast by the narrow Mykale Straits.

The island is not only graced with exquisite beauty, but it also has a rich culture and heritage.

Despite the 1998 destructive fires, Samos still remains green with pine trees, olive groves and citrus trees. The greenery rolls down the hills to the coast and gives way to wonderful beaches.

14 breathtakingly #beautiful #Greek #islands 

14 breathtakingly #beautiful #Greek #islands  | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
At the delicate age of 13, I visited the Greek islands for the first time in my life. I have never recovered from the experience, nor do I want to! The breathtaking natural beauty, that typical blend of bright white and azure blue that embellishes so many of the buildings, the curious, friendly Greek people, that are so proud of their culture and heritage – and the enchanting aroma of the pine trees.



My early Greek island memories include the first wine tasting tour of my life, our hilarious efforts to keep up with the professional Greek dancers, and those cheeky, handsome Greek waiters, who always seemed to be so sure that my Mother and I were sisters, and certainly that we couldn’t be Mother and daughter!

I have spent decades of my life adding to my Greek Island memories, and I still have many islands yet to visit. The Greek islands are life-giving and life-affirming at the same time. Here are some of my favourites – it’s not a definitive list, and it’s arranged alphabetically. I’ll be delighted to see your comments and your own personal favourites, if you feel so inclined.

Print of the Month - August 2016

Print of the Month - August 2016 | BEATIFUL | Scoop.it
It is almost six months since I featured a location from England so this time I have selected one from the North York Moors National Park. Robin Hood’s Bay is a small fishing village and a bay located five miles south of Whitby and 15 miles north of Scarborough. Bay Town, its local name, is in the ancient chapelry of Fylingdales.
The origin of the name is uncertain, and it is doubtful if Robin Hood was ever in the vicinity. An English ballad and legend tell a story of Robin Hood encountering French pirates who came to pillage the fisherman's boats and the northeast coast. The pirates surrendered and Robin Hood returned the loot to the poor people in the village that is now called Robin Hood's Bay.



Don’t forget that that each image chosen will only be placed as Print of the Month once so if you like this particular image, buy it with 20% off the standard prices before the end of August. Even better Like my British Landscapes Photography Facebook Page and you can obtain 30% discount.There is a choice of an A3 print which is a perfect fit when mounted for 20" by 16" frames which are readily available via the internet or high street stores OR a 12" by 8" mounted print in a 16" by 12" frame of your choice.
To start or add to your collection just click on the image above and then select your choice from the Featured Products, add to cart and then apply the Coupon Code AUG16 to obtain your 20% off the shown price at the checkout OR 30% having first Liked my Facebook page and applying the Code FBAUG16 before completing the purchase. If "Robin Hood's Bay" is not one of your preferred images then by all means please share with me your favourites and I will see if we can make them available in due course.
