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.

Greek Series: Expedition to Nea Kameni

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

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.

Greek Series: Mykonos and Delos

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 can be accessed here.

Mykonos is part of the Cyclad islands. Today a populous island, living mostly of tourism. It is well known for its beaches and night life. In ancient times though the much smaller sister island of Delos was much more important than Mykonos. It was a sacral island and a place of worship mainly for the gods Apollon and Artemis. After its decline Delos was largely forgotten and rediscovered only in modern times by archeologists from France. Today it is a museum and can be visited easily from Mykonos by ferry. The pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 (the well known lion statues) and 6 are from Delos, while the other are shot on Mykonos.

Greek Series: Greece in Black and White

Without any doubt Greece is a colorful country and I myself am very fond of powerful colors in photographs. But interestingly sometimes the absence of color brings focus and a certain sharpness to pictures.

In todays entry I want to explore the rocky heartland of the peninsula. As for Greece it is unusually green there and it can go quite high, there are even Ski resorts. Especially lovely are the small towns..
