A beautiful sunset seen through a windmill in Oia, Santorini
On this picture you can see a picturesque Terrace in Oia on the Island of Santorini. Most likely this terrace will have a fantastic view over the island and the Aegean Sea. It probably belongs to a hotel or another touristic accomodation.
At the Caldera of the vulcanic island Santorini this beautiful former windmill can be found. Clouds were arriving and leaving, creating this wonderful mood.
A mule is carrying the load of a local in Emporio, a small village in the mountains of Santorini. In the background you can see a little Greek orthodox church with a round, blue roof and a cross on it.
Kamari is very popular amongst tourists visiting Santorini. It has a long, dark beach with a lot of nice taverns. This picture, showing a fantastic view over Kamari and large parts of the island of Santorini, was taken from a mountain a little south of Kamari. On this mountain you can find the excavations of Ancient Thera. This picture was taken from roughly 300m above sea level.
At Oia in the northern part of the Island Santorini, you can perfectly enjoy the sunset. But even after the sunset you have a splendid view on large parts of this great island of volcanic origin. In the foreground lies Oia and along the caldera many other small villages follow, all with a nice view over the Aegean Sea. The illumination, combined with the last natural light in the evening give this picture a special atmosphere.
Santorini is an Island of exceptional beauty. Especially during night and at the blue hour. Today I want to present a picture of Santorini at night, taken in Oia, a little while after sunset.
