Heat wave and beautiful light

If you are about to visit Lesvos, you really should know that this is one hot destination.

Literally that is. We have ‘enjoyed’ temperatures 5° C to 7º C above the average for the past 5 weeks.

While you enjoy your holiday, spare a thought for the local workers who have to cook, clean and look after you. It’s hot outside but even hotter in the kitchen.

Our favourite time is sunrise. It’s cooler and everywhere is quiet and bathed in the most glorious light. It reminds me of one of the many reasons we came to live here. Photographers of the world take note – if you have not visited Lesvos, you are missing the most amazing and inspiring light on earth.

Please share with your friends.

About Robin

We started visiting Lesvos such a long time ago we can't remember when. We simply fell in love with the island in general and Molyvos in particular. In 2005 we bought some land and tried to manage the building of our house from the UK. Holidays became site visits and our house was [mostly] completed in 2007. In 2009 we sold up in the UK and moved to Molyvos. This is now our home and we count ourselves amongst the luckiest of the lucky. I am a member of the Molyvos Tourist Association, providing photographs for their brochures and general publicity. Most of my time is spent on activities to encourage tourism or taking photographs of one of the most beautiful places on earth. I also produce calendars and sell them on-line through Lesvos Calendars. Please visit and have a look. You can also see more of my photographs on my  Robin Sanders Photography website.
