Greece - July 27th, 2009

The Ionian Islands, off the coast of mainland Greece, include seven principal islands and many smaller ones as well.  The seven are, from north to south Corfu (called Kerkyra in Greek), Paxos (Paxi), Lefkas (Lefkada), Ithaca (Ithaki), Cephalonia (Kefallonia), Zante (Zakynthos) and Cerigo (Kythira).

The six northern islands are off the west coast of Greece, in the Ionian Sea. The seventh island, Cerigo, is off the southern tip of the Peloponnesus, the southern part of the Greek mainland. This image focuses on Lefkas, Ithaca, Cephalonia and Zante.

Here, phytoplankton flanks most of the western coastline of Lefkas and a smaller area off the northwestern shore of Cephalonia, creating a bright cyan color in the water.
