Santorini, May 28th

We were back at Oia for our morning sunrise shots.  

We got some beautiful pastel colours in the sky.

We had seen this dog wandering around the town the previous day.  He found a comfortable spot.

You know it was pretty early in the morning when you didn't have the tourists in your shots. This shot was taken just before 7 am.

The views from Oia were just spectacular.  It is easy to see why this town is so crowded.

It was a pleasure walking around early in the morning before the tourists were up and about.  

Taking a peak into this person's terrace we saw an interesting sculpture.  The nice light made the scene picture worthy.

I really liked this view a lot.  I was thinking it would make a terrific place to come for sunrise which we did the next day.  

  One last shot before we headed back to the hotel for breakfast and a rest before heading out to our next location.

We ended up in the  Vlichada port and beach community located on the south coast of Santorini.  Some of the fishing boats were pretty colourful.


We walked around the port watching some of the fishermen checking their nets  and cleaning their fish.

Later in the afternoon, we drove to the south shore of the island to visit both the Red and Black beach.  The red beach is one of the most famous and beautiful beaches in Santorini.  

The beach's sand is composed of black and red pulverized volcanic rock from the nearby Santorini caldera.  The area is prone to landslides.  The beach was not easy to access, however there were people who did make the trek to the beach.  We were not one of them!

You can see all of the fallen rocks in the area.

We ended up at Black Beach to shoot the sunset.  Unfortunately, we didn't get the colours we were hoping for.  Still it was a nice scene.

Nice pics. Interesting. How do they keep the buildings so white?

Lovely Marsha !
So bright, so clean, so fresh and I love the puppy.
The colours are spectacular - It's such a picturesque island and you captured the beauty of it in your photographs. It's no wonder that the island is such a tourist magnet. I can see the importance of getting those early morning shots before the streets become crowded. The rocks on the beach in the last photo remind me of the boulders in NZ. Lovely, Marsha!
