20 breathtaking pictures that prove how amazing Zakynthos is

Zakynthos or Zante is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea and a popular summer resort. In this beautiful island lives one of my favourite artists Natassa Klavdianou. Natassa is a local with a true head for art complete with pebbles, wood and other materials nature offers to her inspiration. All beauties she makes with her hands are presented in her gallery in Zakynthos named Sea and Fantasy. She is also a photographer of really aesthetic quality pictures. In this post I am delighted to present some of her astonishing photos.

For the purpose of this post we collected some of his recent photographs and few of his artistic creations. Enjoy!
