The Aegean bright light...


What makes Skyros light in general seem so special? 

The combination of small masses of land dotted against the Aegean Sea, high island vantage points and steep cliffs which lets the observer perceive the light falling from the sun while more light simultaneously reflects back up off the sea, the neutral brownness of the landscape, especially in the Summer, and the sparkling white of the simple Skyros island houses. It's magic, and it's not to be found in any guide book or monitor screen: it must be seen to be believed.
