Analipsi Chapel

The lone bell of Analipsi church overlooking the lost city of Olous.
‘Teetering over the rocks around the bay I approach another chapel, this time an intact, single-aisled, simple stone structure of Venetian origin set in parched earth and surrounded by a low, stone wall. On the rocks a lone fisherman casts his bait into the candescent waters of Mirabello as he sits in the shade of a wind-bent pine. The light bounces off the bright cream walls of the church and burns into the scrubby grass and palms that eke a living in the churchyard in the shadow of a single bell hanging silent in the belfry, its rope secured to the window-catch on the flank wall.’IMG_0247.JPG
