Ok last year me and my family went to Mycenae and i forgot to take a picture of the Lions Gate, couple days ago i went with my son on a school trip to Mycenae and Epidavros, so here is a picture of the Lions Gate plus the Mycenae. Panayia Tholos. View of Tomb Chamber from N. And the the theater at Epidavros south east of Nafplion is well known for the unique acqoustics of its 4th BC century old theater, i dropped a coin in the center of the theater and it echoed all the way to the top, that was something else, but it is these kind of places is where you do need a 10-20 lense, i only had my canon IXUS with me

Arkadaş, I remember your regret about forgetting to take a picture of the Lions Gate in your post 'Mycenae Citadels Walls' last year about this time! Seems like the ixus hasdone the job well especially with the exposure

Btw,Epidaurus is a site I'm looking forward to go shooting also. I guess performances are still held there as we doat the antique theater of Ephesus here : )

I have a feeling you'll acquire that 10-20 lens soon

I didn't see that one, i saw others, the Sigma seems like a good option but i have read that the canon 10-22 is sharper and has better color, so i don't know which way to go, they both seem fine though.

Great shots, just as you say could be better with a wider angle lens

I see wide angle adaptors available on ebay, looks like a cheaper alternative

to paying for a whole lens :-)I dont know how they compare to a proper lens

some are available at 0.7 which converts 18mm to 12mm 52mm thread

other adaptors are available at 0.5 for even wider angle found elsewhere

on ebay.

Fascinating pictures, hercules. Robust as always. The people and the shadows of people looking down of course contributes to give an impression of scale. How large is the Lions Gate?

Those classic names!. Mykene, Epidauros (swedish) There must be many different ways to spell the names; all over the world.

Thanks also for the informative text
