Up on a wall fence and with my half body in the foreign property,i 'have stolen' this scene,with the fascinating view of Caldera,with the lucky vacationers as swimming in the pool,seeing straight ahead Akrotiri and from the right the two new islets,Kamenes,as creating from the Volcano activities years ago.
This shot is dedicated to my friend Nobu-nobuikehonda
The Cyclades are part of a metamorphic complex area known as the Cycladic Massif, which formed during the Miocene and were folded and metamorphosed during the Alpine Orogeny around 60 million years ago. Thera itself is built upon a small, non-volcanic basement that represents the former non-volcanic island which was approximately 9 by 6 km (5.6 by 3.7 mi) in size. The basement rock consists primarily of metamorphosed limestone and schist dating from the Alpine Orogeny. These non-volcanic rocks are exposed at the Profitis Ilias Mountains, Mesa Vouno, the Gavrillos ridge, Pyrgos, Monolithos, and the inner side of the caldera wall between Cape Plaka and Athinios.
The metamorphic grade consists of a blueschist facies resulting from tectonic deformation by the subduction of the African Plate beneath the Eurasian Plate between the Oligocene and the Miocene and represents the southernmost extent of the Cycladic blueschist belt.
Volcanism on Santorini is due to the Hellenic Trench subduction zone to the south-west of Crete. The oceanic crust of the northern margin of the African Plate is being subducted under Greece and the Aegean Sea, which consists of thinned continental crust, leading to the formation of the Hellenic arc, which includes Santorini along with other volcanic centres such as Methana, Milos and Kos.

amazing capture, good POV and composition, I like the inclusion of the agave
Guenther (10915) 2011-08-27 6:02
great POV you had here and original cut you gave to the image including just a slight strip of the opposite coastline, I like it...
Have a nice weekend

Εξαιρετική κάθετη σύνθεση σε υπέροχα χρώματα. Σκούρο μπλε θάλασσες εναρμονίζεται απόλυτα με το λευκό βάρκες και ομπρέλες δίπλα στην πισίνα. Η εικόνα είναι ένα εξαιρετικό συμπλήρωμα της αγαύης προς τα αριστερά. Σύνθεση μου αρέσει.
geoant68 (331) 2011-08-27 7:57
εντυπωσιακή σκηνή με εξαιρετική γωνία λήψης που σου πιάνεται η αναπνοή. Ήθελα ν' ήξερα με τι κουράγιο οι ένοικοι αυτού του ξενοδοχείου κάνουν μπάνιο,όταν ξέρουν ότι από κάτω τους βρίσκεται η θάλασσα σε απόσταση 300 και μέτρων.
pajaran (55025) 2011-08-27 8:18
Lepo mesto sa bazenom na obali i pogledom na turisticke brodove za krstarenje.
Dobar tekst sa podacima o mestu ...
Dobar snimak i prikaz mesta lepom fotografijom i bojama.
Kod nas su tropske vrucine, uzivao bih da se okupam i rashladim u lepom plavom moru.
Imajte lepo popodne i vreme.
Sve najbolje za vikend.
Nice place with a pool on the coast overlooking the tourist cruise ships.
Good article with information on the site ...
Good recording and display of photography and beautiful colors.
With us the tropical heat, I enjoyed it a bath and cooled in a beautiful blue sea.
Have a nice afternoon and time.
All the best for the weekend.
lousat (82512) 2011-08-27 8:34
Hi Danos,magnificent perspective,i like the agave as a natural border and this beautiful blue,i wish to be sitting under the big umbrellas to see live this fantastic spectacle! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
Sonata11 (33697) 2011-08-27 8:36
what a great place to relaxing and dinning and have all in one. A very beautiful shot of this wonderful seascape. Excellent POV with great colors, aharpness, super clarity to let us see the boats too. Great work. I like it.
All the best and have a nice WE,
maria-v1981 (10932) 2011-08-27 9:09
Πολύ καλή σύνθεση με εξαιρετικη γωνία λήψης. Η Σαντορινη είναι πλεόν από τα πιό γνωστά μέρη του κόσμου και απο τα λίγα μέρη της Ελλάδος που κατακλίζεται απο κρουαζιερόπλοία.
Καλο σου απόγευμα,
wolf38 (31284) 2011-08-27 9:39
Hi Danos. These are the photos that dreams are made of. First, my compliments for the successful composition. The Agave left is very nice ind included the total composition. And the deep blue sea water is a delight to the eye. Well seen and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.
cornejo (35791) 2011-08-27 11:12
Γεια σας Δανός, μια καλή εικόνα του ταράτσα η οποία θεωρείται ως εντυπωσιακή θέα, καλή σύνθεση με πολύ καλή ποιότητα εικόνας, υπέροχη δουλειά πολύ καλά κάνει, συγχαρητήρια. Καλησπέρα και ευτυχισμένος Κυριακή.
Με τις καλύτερες ευχές.
dip (23844) 2011-08-27 11:33
Γειά σου Δάνο,
πραγματικά εντυπωσιακή η θέα!
τα κρουαζιερόπλοια ομορφαίνουν τη σύνθεση,το μπλέ της θάλασσας έγραψε πολύ ωραία,πολύ καλό το καδράρισμα με το φυτό στο προσκύνιο να δίνει βάθος,ίσως εγώ να έκοβα λίγο από το πάνω μέρος ώστε το κάδρο να τελειώνει στη θάλασσα,
pablominto (53746) 2011-08-27 23:36
Two ships in one catch hehehe...!
the elevated point of view gives a fine effect composition wise, the swimmingpool adds interest value too...
Amazing blue, and a fine reminder of high summer!
emka (86409) 2011-08-28 0:01
indeed, it a breathtaking view. This deep blue colour of the sea, ships, and first of old the agave flower. I wouldn't mind to sit under these white umbrellas for a while.
RhodieIke (11742) 2011-08-28 1:38
Hi Danos, I am holding my breath and holding on tight, super photo and fantastic height of this super scene, super colours, light and management, TFS, Have a nice Sunday, Cheers Iain.
siamesa (27763) 2011-08-28 2:47
Bom dia Danos
Impressive blue color of the sea. A fine composition with those two boats sailing in this fantastic sea.
Very well composed.
DjoleEric (0) 2011-08-28 3:33
A good display of colors and sharpness.
A great time to clip.
jhm (144250) 2011-08-28 3:35
Indeed a breathtaking view about these wonderful area.
A wonderful place under the umbrellas for a lunch with sight on sea.
Contrast and sharpness are pleasant taken.
You try to showing a perfectly image, really succeeded.
Nice composition, lovely presentation too. TFS.
timecapturer (49288) 2011-08-28 3:47
I love the way you have composed this vision in blue. As you know I am a big fan of Santorini and this is a wonderfully original and intriguing view. A superb observation and captivating presentation.
Wishing you a peaceful Sunday - Brian.
ikeharel (62925) 2011-08-28 3:48
Excelent POV to show the Caldera from higher ground's.
The vertical pic. show both sides, and with very good details of the vessels there.
The tree on left scaling the whole.
josepmarin (57947) 2011-08-28 4:12
It is an impressive sight, indeed, that you have caught skillfully from a great POV, not adapted for who suffers dizziness.
The enormous cruise ships seems small from this height, and it give us a good reference of the scale of this colossal caldera.
The tables and the parasols next to the swimming pool, hung on the precipice, look like an excellent place to take an appetizer.
A beautiful photo, my friend.
paololg (31448) 2011-08-28 4:49
Yes, you're right, dear Danos, to swim in this pool must be lucky and rich. However, this fantastic view allowed you to capture a beautiful photo, vibrant and with beautiful colors. The tree in the FG gives a good depth to the whole scene. Excellent work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice week!
pierrefonds (60360) 2011-08-28 4:54
The distance between the swimming pool and the ships is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the ships. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
bema (26363) 2011-08-28 4:59
really breathtaking, like so many motives of the island of santorini.. siiting or being at the egde of the cliffs must be a wonderful experience for everybody, getting such an perfect outlook, too..
thanks for sharing, see you around, filika Bernd
Mari63 (4085) 2011-08-28 7:22
composizione molto interessante con l'agave in primo piano che aiuta a dare profondità all'immagine. Colori strepitosi, ottima nitidezza.
Un caro saluto Mari
dkmurphys (52703) 2011-08-28 10:25
Very interesting holiday composition. Splendid blue background and very well chosen umbrellas in the foreground.
Good work, have a nice Sunday evening.
Fis2 (89993) 2011-08-28 12:40
Interesting POV and nice compositio.
Budapestman (82620) 2011-08-28 13:07
great view, I like the composition and the beautiful blue colours, the POV is effective, great atmosphere, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!
baddori (20011) 2011-08-28 14:02
Due grosse navi da crociera ..un buon giro ..Costa Crociere (giallo) .
L'inflorescenza dell'agave e lo splendido "resort" con una mare che fa concorrenza a Capri...
abmdsudi (46898) 2011-08-28 15:48
Very eyecatching image with simple subjects offered by blue and white contrasting colors, these make the image. Nice vantage point with some interesting elements
in both the fg and bg capture in excellent clarity, crispiness and superb compo. Well done. Congrats
kato (11630) 2011-08-28 19:34
You're capturing well this seascape by a good angle and beautiful tone, so it's a greek scene.
yeln (11516) 2011-08-28 23:20
mislim, da nas je veliko, ki z veseljem pogledamo fotografije iz Santorinija. prav vse so zanimive in čudovite. modrina, ki je doma na Santoriniju je resnično taka, da vzame dih. lepo delo, my friend!!!
Ricx (13495) 2011-08-29 2:04
Hi Danos, I can see it was worth the climb to get there. what a great image with wonderful contrasting colours and tones.. fascinanting mnote- we learnt so much on TE. Have a great week Rich
Giorgio (11279) 2011-08-29 3:03
- Nice composition Danos, with this hight point of view dominant and beautiful boats to the bottom, we appreciate the piece of swimming pool, parasols and deck chairs, cactus at the end of life in the foreground, a holiday atmosphere emerges, bravo!
All the best.
bayno (18344) 2011-08-29 3:51
Hi Danos, beautiful composition full of subjects, I really like the color contrast between the pool with two umbrellas and the sea, is also excellent timing for the boats, which gives dynamism to the scene, there is well also the agave with its small roots, and indeed bound by ropes, even nice the nice reef that is visible in the background, regards, Valter
TopGeo (38208) 2011-08-29 4:32
Γειά σου Δάνο!
Εντυπωσιακά συνέλαβες μία σύνθεση, που και το ύψος της καλντέρας δίνει και την υποδομή του ξενώνα. Σε μία εικόνα με κάθετο πλαίσιο και με ισχυρό χρωματικό συνδυασμό του νερού και των λευκών!
Η αγαύη προσθέτει! περισσότερα εδώ:
maloutim (9639) 2011-08-29 5:28
What a great, plunging view on this beautiful sea and its naval activity.
The structures in the foreground let one imagine the delight of stayinfg in that hotel.
Now, is it better to swim in the sea or in the pool ?
I would prefer the sea I think.
Thanks for this new delightful postcard of your magnificent country.
Graal (100108) 2011-08-29 7:52
verz nice presentation of seashore with the ships. Fine high POV and composition. I like the saturation colours also.
Have a nice evening.
mvdisco (17784) 2011-08-29 8:07
Beautiful birdview of this lovely place,
nice tone of colors and light,
well presented and composed seascape,
Lovely tourist boats well placed in your composition,
a very well done picture..
clic (16074) 2011-08-29 8:44
Geia sou Danos
This picture is a piece of art because all the attractive points of interest are seen over the blue backdrop, including the "fine features" of lone tree that convey a sense of elegance and much depth to the scenery!
Cricri (111373) 2011-08-29 23:22
Belle vue plongeante , un joli coin a en dessous des parasols entre la mer et la piscine, et contemplant la scène , belle lumière et contraste du bleu et blanc, belle image de vacances
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2011-08-29 23:43
another beautiful one from Greece. Your composition is superb here using such higher POV. Depth is nice. The white boats are superb in this sea. Excellent work. Tfs.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-08-30 1:57
A very nice vertical view with an impressive and efficience POV very well selecetd. Good framing too with the Fg which give depht to the composition. The differents elements arise very well in the superb blue of the sea.
Have a nice day,
mauro61 (52633) 2011-08-30 3:36
mi piace l'inquadratura dall'alto con il bel blu del mare e l'agave piegata.
Le due navi da crociera sono ,per la loro mole, le protagoniste,
anokutan (15097) 2011-08-30 5:28
Good recording and display of photography and beautiful colors.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-08-30 6:09
How are you Donos ? That is exactly what I said to myself. It is indeed a breathtaking view. I love what is presented in the FG too, a private swimming pool (?) The blue sea is absolutely magnificent. The ships in the view take me away to a far away paradise, Greece. Together with a great POV, the image is a absolute success. with my at most compliments, Danos
I thank you so much for this view, I am deeply touched. Thank you Danos. I will keep this photo in my gallery forever.
Very best wishes,
peppe59 (14551) 2011-08-30 11:09
beautiful image with perfect POV, great balance and great quality.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-08-31 2:47
You to benefit us of a magnificent photo of holidays, and freedom from care. I like very much the skilfully made composition. The light, the colors, the neatness are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day
delpeoples (55090) 2011-08-31 7:35
Kalimera dear Danos
Wow, what a beautiful dedication for our dear friend, I'm sure he'll love it. The acqua blue tones are spectacular and the vertical frame really adds depth to the image. The sea seems to go on forever.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
ravinmb (1303) 2011-08-31 7:47
This is a wonderful picture. You have shown from one shore to the other and the content is good. It looks like holiday mood.. with the resort and the cruise. The color is beautiful too..
TFS & have a nice day.
eldancer1 (32033) 2011-08-31 10:13
Awesome capture of of those cruise ships. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Angshu (56572) 2011-08-31 22:12
Very nice view from the top with the deep blue azure water creating a good contrast to the white cruise liners. Like the inclusion of the thin tree on the left. Interesting to read that this is indeed a caldera...because its so huge today! Well done!
Longroute (19396) 2011-09-02 0:56
In the caldera there are often two or even three cruising ships which makes a great photographic subject enriching the composition. Here the deep blue of the sea is enhanced by those ships and the sight of the two umbrellas on the terrace. Also the agave flower makes the composition more interesting.
A view one is never tired to look.
nikkitta (16758) 2011-09-03 14:39
I am late, but I arrive to marvel at the beauty of this capture
Great vertical compo with the tree at the left and the very blue water
Keep "stolen" scenes
Have a good Sunday enjoying your sun
jafadabret (56501) 2011-09-04 23:16
Je crois bien que tes photos seront pour quelque chose si un jour je me décide à visiter ces îles grecques. Le bleu de la mer fait un beau contraste avec le blanc des parasols et du bateau.
amaryllis (35857) 2011-09-06 0:56
certes les ciels chez toi sont différents des nôtres dans le nord de la France, le contraste assuré....sourires
excellente photo en plongée de cette terrasse et piscine et toujours sans personne, et ces deux bateaux qui passent, une superbe réalisation
ruisc_pt (10892) 2011-09-11 9:24
Impressive POV Danos
jmdias (58940) 2011-09-13 2:41
a very beautiful framing, the big white boats created a nice dialogue with the white umbrelas and the flower of agave gave a touch of beauty to the composition. nice image. TFS.
yedirenk (11244) 2011-09-24 13:29
Hi again dear Danos,
an another amazing scene from beautiful Greece..perfect presentation with darkblue tones and details in the vertical frame..very good point of view..TFS.

I like a lot this your work.
Good article with information on the site.
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2013-03-19 22:22
Δάνο, ωραία επιλογή το κάθετο! Απίστευτο το μπλε της θάλασσας σε ομορφη αντίθεση με τα κρουαζιερόπλοια και φυσικά το μπαλκόνι είναι ενα ονειρικό σημείο!
καλη σου μέρα,
mcmtanyel (16625) 2013-07-25 15:27
Not recommended for those who have vertigo! The portion of the pool and the umbrellas you included make this very attractive (both the photo and the place).
