Photographer's Note

Imerovigli on the island of Santorini, Greece has some beautifully kept hotels and houses that cling to the very edge of the caldera. Some have impressively kept little roof gardens that give imposing views across the sunken volcano and onto the other islands and villages. This view is across the caldera bay at the little white clouds forming above the island of Thirasia. This island is part of the outer edge of the sunken volcano and once used to be joined to Santorini until the catastrophic eruption that formed the islands as they are now. The eruption took place in the Minoan period of Greek history and is believed to be one of the most violent and devastating in recorded history.
