1937 – May 2017: the flight over Athos

This year I booked a flight above the peninsula of Athos to take aerial pictures. Because of busy times at  work I was not able to sort out all the pictures, that’s why it took some time to share them with you. In totall I made 452 pictures during this flight of more than two hours, and a video, which has also has to be edited yet. Our hight was about 1300 feet (about 400 meters).

To make a start I will first show you the aerial pictures of the twenty monasteries, in its original “Athos”-order:01 Lavra02 Vatopedi03 Iviron04 Chilandariou (and its Pine-forrest: read the last post of Bas Kamps)05 Dionysiou06 Koutloumousiou – in the background. We followed the coastline and did not fly over land.07 Pantocratoros08 Xiropotamou09 Sografou – photo by Jitze Bakker, who joined me together with Tadeusz10 Docheiariou11 Karakallou12 Filotheou13 Simonos Petras14 Pavlou15 Stavronikita16 Xenofontos17 Grigoriou18 Esfigmenou19 Panteleimonos20 Konstamonitou – in the far right corner of this picture.
