[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In May Lesvos is covered with a lot of colours. Splendid are the fields with the red poppies and yellow broom. And when they are standing in a special composition, like in this photo, I love it even more. I hope you like it too.

In the background the Kalloni Gulf.

The nature and the landscape of Lesvos are truly beautiful and very varied: green landscapes, barren mountain scenery, pine forests, oak forests, mountains and hills with the occasional green plains and green valleys, stunning bays, forests with trees, vast olive groves, hot springs, protected natural areas and habitats.
Very special are the salt plains with their unique flora and fauna.

The spectacular Spring migration witnessed in Lesvos has, deservedly, established the island as one of the best bird watching locations in Europe.

Hello Peter,
Lovely landscape, almost a Monet! Yes we like it too. In the last years I have seen again more this kind of poppy-fields in our surroundings too (I see it from the train). Well chosen composition including the yellow and green bushes to give a color-contrast.
I wish you a nice weekend
Kind regards

Hi Peter!
What a beautiful view! The poppies look like a red carpet on the green floor:) The yellow broom makes a nice contrast.
The image is clear and well composed.
