The landscape of Delphi among the best photos of 2016
National Geographic published the list with the 52 best images of the year curated from 91 photographers, 107 stories, and 2,290,225 photographs. Animals, nature, archaelogical sites, portraits… You can discover any themed photograph you can imagine.
Among the stunning 52 photographs, in the 10th place we discovered a photo from Greece.
The caption is “Twilight bathes the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia at Delphi. Pilgrims in ancient Greece may have offered sacrifices here before consulting the oracle of Delphi”. This photo was originally published in “How the Greeks Changed the Idea of the Afterlife,” in July 2016. The photograph was taken by Vincent J. Musi at the Archaelogical site of Delphi.
