Greek Series: Santorini Sunsets

So finally, here comes the last part of my photographic journey through Greece in September 2013. It all started in Athens, where we found a lively metropole thorn between an ancient and heroic past and a troubled but somewhat forward looking present. Then the road trip through the Peloponnes began, which would lead us through places of myths and of nature. Later we left mainland Greece and continued our road trip on high sea, heading to the famous Cyclad islands. We experienced the young and open island of Mykonos, paid a short visit to the ancient Delos, but the highlight for me was Santorini without a doubt. It is such a photogenic island, it almost suspends any belief. And beyond being just photogenic, it is truly beautiful. And the most beautiful thing about it is something I didn’t show you yet. The sunsets here are out of this world, as kitschy it may sound. So I think that’s the way to end the series and say goodbye to Greece for now.. by showing you some of my favorite moments on Santorini at sunset.

Greek Series: Shades of White and Black on Santorini

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies I shot while backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and the last post featuring Santorini can be accessed here.

In the previous entries I highlighted the blue and red tones of Santorini, in this one I will focus on shades of white and black (in color). Pictures three to five are shot at the famous black beach at the eastern shore of the island.

Greek Series: Blue Santorini

The last entry featured the mysterious red tones of Santorini. While the color indeed is very special to the island, Santorini is also part of Greece. And so it is a blue island after all.

Greek Series: Red Santorini

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies I shot while backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and the last post featuring an expedition to Nea Kameni can be accessed here.

The caldera of Santorini is an amazing place. Due to the major volcano eruption around 3,500 thousand years ago the island is covered in red and black stone, exposing layers of rock which are million of years old. Also the water tends to be reddish at times, making it an almost alien sight.

In the next few posts I would like to show you the beautiful and amazing island of Santorini. But before we go the main island some impressions of the new volcano arising in the center of the Santorini caldera. So there are boats to the rock (called Nea Kameni) and it was quite crowded when we were there, nonetheless the trip was absolutely worth it.

Greek Series: Around the Gulf of Corinth

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies I shot while backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and the last post featuring Mykonos and Delos can be accessed here.

In this one I recall our journey around the Gulf of Corinth, visiting small villages and larger cities. But mostly it is all about beauty nature and the all present sea.
