Three years ago I thought about a series of videos showing the different landscapes of Samos island in HD quality. Not so much a video about the usual places (villages, beaches) where most of the tourists will go to, but places, that in my opinion, make Samos special for me.
In 2009/2010, excellent HD video camcorder equipment became affordable, so time was right for me to venture into the area of HD videos.
Since 1999, I have been on Samos many times, so I already had been to many beautiful spots taking photos. Now, equipped with cameras, camcorders, audio field recording eqipment and a tripod, I spent a lot of time driving around the island on a motorscooter to reach all those places I wanted to take videos of. Most of the video material was recorded during springtime on Samos. (months of May and June, 2010 and 2011).
So, 11 minutes long, here is the first part of a small series of videos about the natural beauty of the manyfold landscapes on this water-rich greek east aegean island.
And - like Ivan from Slowakia does right in the beginning of this video - jump and enjoy diving into the Samos experience!
Here is the link to the same video on YouTube!
Support the local people in Greece, e.g. on Samos island, during these hard times!
So please don't confuse watching a video about Samos with being yourself on Samos! ;-) Come and visit this year the beautiful east aegean island of Samos in Greece for a holiday!
Please, don't step in the footsteps of others! Take your time, try the new, find your own ways on Samos and discover your own dreamscapes there!
