The Greek island of Tinos was a pretty noteworthy location back in ancient times. According to Greek mythology, it was here, in the heart of the Aegean Sea, that Poseidon drowned Ajax on his way back from Troy, and where Aeolus, the ruler of the winds, was said to have taken up residence (specifically, in the clouds that wrap around Tinos’ highest mountain). Oh, and Athena was known to throw a thunderbolt or two in the area. More recently, Greek shutterbug Petros Koublis shot a breathtaking series of images paying homage to Tinos’ legends, some of which you can check out right here. To see them all, just head over to his website.
