The walkway on the breakwater at the Venetian Harbour in the Old Port of Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

The Venetian harbour of Heraklion is at the end of 25th of August Street, the pedestrian street leading from the town centre to the Koules Fortress. This is the old harbour of Heraklion, now used by fishing boats and yachts, and its history is as ancient as that of the city itself.

    Nice one Tom. It has good compositional lines leading in and the re[eating theme of the boast is good too. And the cloud gods were kind, I see.

  • Thank you kindly, clouds always help to give some definition to an otherwise bland sky …
