I’ve always been sort of a sucker for any type of view that offers the perspective of looking through a keyhole or a tunnel into it. There’s something about that almost voyeuristic feel I get when I take the shots and then look at them later that is really appealing to me.
This is on the beautiful island of Santorini in Greece. I suspect though, that you already knew that…it’s a pretty iconic place.
The sun was blazing down on me as I shot this (I was riding by on my rented quad runner) but the breeze up that high on the island was a thing of beauty. Not a single uncomfortable day was spent on this island.
I know why Santorini was voted the ‘World’s Best Trip’ by Travel/Leisure magazine in August 2011 and one of the ‘World’s Best Islands” by BBC-Travel in November of the same year .
The scenery is spectacular, the food incredible, and the climate simply divine. I do not exaggerate. You only have to look as far as a simple Wikipedia link to read about the island and it’s charm.
Anyway, back to this photo…it would have been great to sit there and have a few glasses of wine with friends and soak in the view, but this day I was on my way to take a little boat ride to the three ‘colored’ beaches of the island. There’s a white one, a red one, and a black one. Maybe there’ll be some photos coming up of those excursions too.
