This is a typical Ios alley..Stairs, white walls and colourful doors and windows are the character of this island and of course of the rest of Cyclades!
Ios is a Greek island in the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea. Ios is a hilly island with cliffs down to the sea on most sides, situated halfway between Naxos and Santorini. It is about 18 km (11 mi) long and 10 km (6 mi) wide, with an area of about 109 km² (42 mi²). Population was 1,838 in 2001 (down from 3,500 in the 19th century). Ios is part of the Santorini peripheral unit. Ios was the setting for the movie Ginger and Cinnamon (Dillo con parole mie). Also, scenes from the film Big Blue (Le Grand Bleu) were shot in Manganari.
Chora is a white and very picturesque cycladic village, full of stairs and narrow paths, that makes it inaccessible for cars of any kind. Today, the main path through this village is completely taken over by tourism in terms of restaurants, boutiques, bars and discothèques.

Amazing composition like a painting. Super POV and depth of the scenery. Super light management with moody play of lights and shadows. Moody Greek colors

bellissima immagine ben studiata e perfettamente realizza, la gestione del bianco e superba con il blu della porta che interrompe la colorazione , perfetta la profondità data dalla pavimentazione e dal bastione.
complimenti ottimo lavoro
