Above the village of Emporio in Santorini, Greece rises the mountain ridge of Gavrilos, where ruins dating to the Byzantine period have been discovered. On this hill, sits this iconic little church with a beautiful 3 belled tower overlooking the south of the island.

A fine capture of this charming Greek chapel, which continues to be in use judging by the bell ropes. The whitewashed walls and the blue roof echo the pleasantly lit sky. Very good technical presentation.

A perfect presentation of this Greek church architecture. A very ordered, geometric structure with the three lights on the front of the building echoing the three bells at the top.

I like your idea to come back from the autumn cool England to the warm sunny Greece. With the photos at least. Very nice church, good traditional colors.

you found a real gem in Greek architecture. What a sweet looking tiny church! It almost looks unreal with all its white and blue colors and the bells in the tower. Great light and lovely balanced colors.
Thanks for sharing

What a beautiful building you found here!
It is undoubtedly Greek; it looks as if it has been freshly washed it is so pristine.
The details are really sharply captured in the off-set composition, and there is no oe. Well done!
I find it quite amazing how photographs from Greece can be so blue and white!
Have a lovely day,

Très beau bleu et blanc, juste "perturbé" par le rouge de la porte. Bravo pour la belle maîtrise de l'exposition, toujours difficile sur ces murs blancs très éclairés.

hi Brian, another blue-white combination from Greece. It is a signature of Greece. Nice composition. Great sharp details. Like it a lot. Tfs.

dal colore mi era apparso subito chiaro che non potevi averla fatta in Inghilterra, ma questo incontro di bianco e di azzurro colpisce immediatamente la vista con la sua graziosa eleganza che si riflette non solo nei colori ma è evidente anche nelle forme arrotondate.
Un'altra delle tue sempre splendide riprese.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

What a charming small church in the superb colors of Greece. Simple and attractive image, well taken.
Have a fine weekend.

Emporio was a real architectural jewel for me and its atmosphere was quite different from busy and very touristic Oia and Fira.
This one is magnificent!
Little,charming church in Greece colors.

Good choice of a vertical frame with excellent density and featuring the classic blue and white colours of Greece. I like the angled pov and the superb sharpness. The 3 bells reminded me of Oia. Adequate breathing space at both the top and bottom. Tfs!
