Crete Greece - martin bennie

Crete is steeped in history although most historical sites over-run with tourists. The best times to visit are early spring or late September. Crete's scenery ranges from beaches to olive groves and spectacular mountains with fantastic light especially in early morning or at sunset. Photography wise the best locations are in the mountain villages, where a donkey is often the normal form of transport and many of the older men still wear traditional Greek clothing.
