Irresistible New Year's lyric from Beatle George Harrison from his 1974 hit "Ding Dong, Ding Dong" -
"Yesterday, today was tomorrow
And tomorrow, today will be yesterday!
So ring out the old, ring in the new
Ring out the false, ring in the true."
Well these two bells on the little bell tower, of one of the many that grace the island of Santorini, Greece, will hopefully ring in a Happy New Year to all of my TE friends. I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2014. Plus, of course, lots of wonderful images!

great shot, Brian. I like your selected POV, from which this white structure is looking awesome. The dark blue sky is contrasting nicely with it. A nice signature of Greece, very well presented. Tfs.

It looks like a Space on the background, the real space with the cosmic object, satellites and the far planets. Impressive contrast of the colors, another interesting photo from Greece. I like your way to use the shadow for a copyright. )))
Happy New Year!
Greetings from Ceylon!

I only had the see the deep blue sky, and I instantly knew that this is Santorini. Me and my wife have been there on on honeymoon in 1987, and I brought back several shots (on film) very similar to this one.
Thanks for sharing, and a happy and prosperous New Year!

Hello Brian ,
a very appropriate shot for this time of year with a most suitable title.
It`s a really well presented shot with the tower well lit against the clear blue sky.
Best wishes throughout the coming year.
kwekwekan (1022) 2013-12-31 6:39
There are two elements I really like about your picture: 1) the sharp interplay of shadow and light on the building's façade 2) the complimentary gradient of blue and black of the sky.
Wishing you a very happy new year,

jjcordier (73312) 2013-12-31 23:22
Merci pour cette très belle photo et les souhaits qui y sont associés.
J'espère que 2014 sera une année riche et agréable pour toi et tes proches et, plus égoïstement, que tu continueras à nous offrir d'aussi belles photos!
mkamionka (29253) 2014-01-01 2:16
very impressive composition. This is such a well known motif and yet a very interesting and original angle to present it. I like also the gradient of the blue color in the sky moving up to the dark blue. Strong shade adds another nice touch.
Have a happy New Year!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-01-01 13:16
this photo is very attractive and its strength lies in elegant composition and simplicity. The contrast between the white church and dark blue sky is great and I love the way the building stands out. Nice framing and good choice of format.
Thanks for sharing and all the best in New Year!
macjake (52184) 2014-01-02 2:31
yes, same to you of course...any travel plans for 2014?
sweet looking contrasts, and i think i've mentioned it before that Greece seems to be a hard place to photograph with all these whites and the strong lighting!
anyways, this one was pulled off smartly, as you always do. great shot
krzychu30 (15332) 2014-01-03 2:22
Emporio was for me a real revelation among other villages on Santorini.This one is magnificent!
I enjoy your perspective,but also so strong and expressive color contrast between white facade of the church and the sky(looks amazing!)
Happy New Year!
emka (73329) 2014-01-03 2:33

Beautiful greeting card accompanied of nice song. Thanks!
Happy New Year 2014 for you and your!
sevy (15325) 2014-01-10 6:02
Interesting shot, playing with strong contrast a the use of polarizer to build a dark area in the sky to make an echo to the shadow triangle in the bottom.
The blue tones are nice and the shot is working, but I think a conversion in B&W could also be tried.
Waylim (25070) 2014-01-20 18:26
A very unique composition with the extra tall vertical format, the dark indigo blue of the sky contrast the white stacoo wall so very nicely. Love it, classic Greek signature color image.
