Τhe couple of the Hellenic Air Force is both the superiors. This photograph is pulled into the Corinthian islet on the Peloponnese.
The Isthmus of Corinth is a narrow strip of land that unites Central Greece with the Peloponnese, while the canal that has been opened to it joins the Saronic Gulf with the Corinthian Gulf. It is about 6 km long and the narrowest point is where the Corinth canal was built (1880-1893). It was a strategic point and for that reason a wall was built already in the ancient times (late 5th century BC), which had been preserved even to the Byzantines (Examilion).

The islet of Corinth was known in the ancient world as the landmark that separated the Peloponnese from the rest of mainland Greece. In the 1st century AD geographer Strabo pointed out a column in the isthmus of Corinth, which brought two inscriptions. One to the East, Megara of Attica, which said: "The Peloponnese, the other one" and the other towards the West, ie the Peloponnese: "in the Peloponnese, Oikon". Plutarch handed down the construction of this column to the hero of Attica Theseus on his way to Athens.

From 1893 onwards, the Corinth Canal, which in fact makes the Peloponnese Island, has been opened to the 6.3 km wide isthmus. Today, two road, two railway and two sinking bridges at both ends of the canal connect the mainland of the isthmus with that of the Peloponnese. At the western end of the Canal there is also a military emergency bridge.
There is a great fight and a great love of Constantine and the Basil.
YOU ARE ALWAYS HAPPY AND HAPPENED.

The portrait was taken the day after the wedding in which the couple thoroughly enjoyed the 3 day event in the lovely spring weather of Athens-Greece and I had the honour of being there with the couple portraying moments indescribable with words, but only with pictures.
