Fall In Love With Blue

The stunning blue shades of the water and the surroundings of an area in Corfu, Greece that is very well known – Kassiopi.

The area of Kassiopi is a little fishing village, a pretty little place to have a coffee or moor your boat for the day, while you wander through the cobbled streets to explore the shops and little cafe’s.

Not just known for being a quaint fishing village, it is also home to some of the biggest villas I have ever seen – belonging to some of the world’s elite.

“The town is said to have been founded during the reign of Pyrrhus, King of Epirus in the 3rd Century BC, as a supply post during his war with Rome.

After the Roman conquest of the island in 230 BC, many Emperors visited, most prominently Emperor Nero, who came to a Temple to Zeus here.

Much of a small headland to the north of the resort is taken up by a Byzantine fortress.

The fortress was subsequently fortified further by the Venetians and survived sieges from the Ottoman Turks in the 16th century.

Today parts of the fortress’s walls can be seen from the coastal road around the headland.”

Whenever I visit Kassiopi, I like to take a look around and get some colour inspiration – there are so many shops with colourful wares, from shell mobiles to glass lights hanging in the door.

Take a look at the images I snapped with my canon – and get a feel for the Greek island blue >

Do you get inspired by the colours you see on your travels?

    Absolutely stunning photos. I was also really inspired by the blues and greens of the ocean when on holiday last week!
