Storm over Aphrodites Rock

Storm over Aphrodites Rock

Paphos, Cyprus

Best viewed in 'original'.
This is the birthplace of Aphrodite's (the goddess of beauty and love) and is one of the islands most famous attractions. In Greek this site is known as 'Petra trou Romiou' and in Greek mythology it is said that Aphrodite emerged from the sea foam at this point.

Is this storm warning for a new coming of Aphrodite here ? Superb atmospheric image in all cases and where all the people add to the mythological sense of greatness of the rocks. V.
