Arkadi Monastery, Crete, Greece

This is the church at the Monastery of Arkadi on the Greek island of Crete. A working Greek Orthodox monastery with a historic background, Arkadi is a popular site for tourists who visit Rethymnon and the surrounding area.

This shot is one of my earlier photos taken from my time spent living in Crete but it is still a favorite. I love how the pink geranium flowers frame the church... helping to give it a traditional rustic mediterranean feel.
