This shot just blows my mind Ginnie, what more can I say.

Greece is one of my favotite countries.
Yasso File Mou(hello my friend)
I have several friends who live in Halkidiki. I have been visiting Greece for over 21years.tongue
Ginnie Hart: I would gladly spend an entire cruise in Greece alone, Tracy. Maybe some day. So glad you have been there.

Have a great time in Prague this week. I can hardly wait to see your photos!
That's a favorite photo for sure, Ginnie. Greece looks like it could be heaven
Ginnie Hart: I think maybe so, Mary! smile Thanks.

You demonstrate a wonderful eye for the Epic possibilities of the world you see, Ginnie.
This is an utterly beautiful image, and the elders of Corfu would do well to snap it up for their next season's publicity brochures.
Greece is one of my fantasy destinations, and with this image you have rekindled the desire to visit.
Ginnie Hart: Always the gentleman, Ray! Now that we've been to Corfu, we definitely want to see more of Greece, to be sure!

What for a sky and what for a day..! Chaire! Streams of light are beaming down on the island and the sea- a wonderful atmosphere! Beautiful the silhouette of the cross of the church.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Philine! It was such a magnificent day.
Wow, beautifully captured. The simple cross and the rays of light make me feel as though you were arriving at a special `holy` place. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Roz, it did feel 'holy' at that moment. I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation. Thanks.
HA ! Ginnie this one is really nice, and I like your border of course smile
Ginnie Hart: I'm learning from the pro, Zeb. smile Thanks.
You certainly do get around, Ginn! This is a wonderfully atmospheric image. The crucifix makes this shot for me, combined with the shafts of heavenly light pouring down from above.
Ginnie Hart: I didn't see the cross until I did the transfer, Andrew. It was a very nice added touch for me. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
I love the rays on the building .. Very nice work .
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Corfu's daily blessing. Great picture again.

I like these sexy borders you are adding onto you pictures nowadays. Beautiful colour matching in this case.
Ginnie Hart: It was definitely a daily blessing" of our cruise, Louis. And these borders are just a special touch, I guess, to make them more me, if that makes sense.

The frame is perfect for this shot. Beautiful lighting provided from above.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Aussie. It really was spectacular for me to see it.
As a child I was always told these shafts of light were God's fingers ;o) This shot might just make me believe it. Wonderful Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I've heard that as well, Mike. It sure makes sense to me. Thank you.

Ohh, my goodness. More than fabulous. The hazy mountain (island?) back there. The oldness of this city, the thin cross sillhouetted, those rays. Oh, Boots, oh my. To be there! I feel it.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, you would definitely feel it, Ruth! What a place. Thank you.
One Word: Breathtaking!!!!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Dr. Feelgood, for stopping by and commenting!

Great catch of the light
Ginnie Hart: Lovely, indeed, Magnus. I hope to go back again and see more of it. Thanks.
A sky to die for and a superb composition. I love the almost silhouette of the town. It seems to be just waking.
Ginnie Hart: It definitely was just waking, as was I, Bill. What a place! Thanks.

Speechless ( that does not happen to often I tell you tongue )God created a beautiful place here at Corfu, love it.
BTW Ginnie I hope you threw that brochure photographer overboard, I'll bet you do a far better job than he did, maybe you can go for free next time in return for pictures tongue
Ginnie Hart: Awww. You are such a sweetheart, Astrid! Wouldn't that be fun...to have our photography pay for something! smile
You chose just the right moment to push the shutter Ginnie. Wonderful capture. David.
