Skala Sikamneas (Panagia Gorgona) is a 3-minute aerial film by Nick Drone
Bird’s eye views: In our previous post, The Mermaid Madonna church at Skala Sykaminias on Lesvos, we recounted a visit to the charming island village, and described interesting information and stories that we didn’t learn about until after we returned home from our holiday. We also shared some of our photos of the church, a veritable Greek island icon.
We subsequently stumbled upon the YouTube channel for Nick Drone, where we discovered this aerial video from September 2020. The film captures beautiful views of the village, harbour and church as they’re bathed in the golden glow of late afternoon sunshine. The church and village appear radiant in the warm autumn sunlight, while the sparkling, crystal clear waters below the church look striking.
The camera makes several overhead passes to capture the impressive landscape and coastal scenery, and it circles above the Panagia Gorgona church for 360-degree views of the building. We think you’ll enjoy the scenic 3-minute flight.
