The White Mountains seen from Aradena

Stepping back a little from the position at which I took yesterday's photo this takes in a wider range of the mountains, from Zaranokefala in the West (left) to Theodoris (2354m, highest in the picture) and beyond.
In the foregound the first asphodels are sprouting through a chaos of rocks. The land to the South of Aradena looks like a desert of sharp rocks but in the past, when many more people lived here, they had to make use of all the land. If you look at the satellite picture of the area (the photo above was taken from close to the road, near the concrete sheep pen that you can see if you view the larger map) you start seeing a whole structure of ancient fields, paths and walls. Life must have been so hard then.

PS If you haven't seen it yet, I now have a blog on Crete. Go and take a look.
