Ombrosgialos Cove is in the North West area of the Greek Island of Crete

I promise you that this is exactly how it looks…I have not adjusted this in any way…..
The water was so clear and this amazing colour.

I am a keen amateur photographer and would always welcome feedback.
At present I use a Nikon D300 and a Panasonic Lumix but some older images have been taken with various Fuji cameras.
Thank you for looking, I hope that you enjoy my galleries.
