We've always been country dwellers, so spending an initial period in Paphos itself was something of a culture shock.
From a photography point of view, it brought a whole range of interesting subjects within walking distance.
One feature that fascinates me is the divide between Kato Paphos (the bit of the town by the sea) and Ktima Paphos (the older town). The two portions of the town are separated by a steep rocky escarpment.
It's an interesting walk along the escarpment because its riddled with caves, some of which are used for religious purposes.
Of course I had to check them out, hoping my flash wasn't upsetting anybody's communion with whoever!
We're now living in Coral Bay, a short drive up the coast from Paphos.
It's not an area I've explored in detail before, so again a whole load of new things are lining themselves up in front of the Nikon.
As you travel up the coast road through Chlorakas, you can't miss the wreck of the Demetrios II just off the coast.
She ran aground in bad weather, and remains exactly where she came to grief over ten years ago.
To read the full story, go to The Wreck of the Demetrios II on my Cyprusandmore site.
I toyed for a while with how to photograph her, sometimes the obvious doesn't come to you.
I don't usually like telephoto shots, but this subject cried out for a long lens and a sunset. So that's what I did one January afternoon.
I still can't get over that January sunsets are warm!
Coral Bay is a seething mass of tourists in the summer, but in winter it's almost deserted. The bars and restauarants gently tick over, waiting until Spring returns with its Boeings and Airbuses bringing in the masses from Northern Europe and especially the UK.
A walk on the beach is a delight - no need to step over the loungers to enjoy the view at this time of year!
The other notable thing about Cyprus at this time of the year is its already Spring. When you're used to seeing the brown and dusty island that is Cyprus in the summer, the green and flowery island that is Cyprus in the Spring is a delight.
Already there's a host of yellow flowers out - including some form of oilseed rape that seems to grow everywhere. Many of the trees are in blossom - the hazel trees with their white and pink flowers look stunning when the sun shines on them. Throw in a dark sky behind them, and you've got the makings of some great pictures!
