Photographer's Note

Image number 3 in a short series on the different faces of Lindos. Previous posts showed the timeless face and the tourist effect in the village.
Here we see the cost to the area of the flood of tourists who hit the village each day. Between about 10am and 4pm the place is choked with bodies. On the day I took this I counted 35 coaches parked at the top of the hill disgorging people from cruise ships and tours from other parts of the island.
To provide some context to the shot, the Acropolis, so central to the previous images, is barely visible directly above the taxi in the middle of the shot.
(I've reposted the image as it looked terribly 'muddy' on TE although the original seemed OK prior to posting. This has resulted in a burnt out area of sky, but hopefully the content, and most importantly the Acropolis, is now a little clearer.)
