Vathia terraces

Vathia, Mani, Greece, June 2010Monsell’s photograph of Vathia (‘A distant prospect of the Towers of Vathia’) opposite page 160 of the 1958 Mani shows terraces of olive trees of almost paddyfield like precision.  My photograph of 2010, admittedly from a differed direction, suggests how much the terraces have eroded, and presumably olive cultivation has been neglected, over the past 50 years.
