Photographer's Note

The Greek goddess Aphrodite was born on Cyprus. Or actually, she was born from the foam of the sea around this rock, on the beach close to Pafos.

In ancient times, lots of people came here to join in the fertility rituals here and at the nearby temple. In Greek, the rock is called Petra tou Romiou.
