Firostefani Santorini: Firostefani lies to the north of Fira and there is little that separates it from it considerable larger neighbour. As with Fira the views from this part of Santorini are spectacular but the town are higher up so offer a different perspective of the volcano.
And of course one can enjoy the magnificent sight of Fira itself. It is a superb place to enjoy the sunset in the evening.
The village have restaurants from which one can also observe the sunset in its full glory.
Between the village of Firostefani and Imerovigli lies the Agios Nikolas Monastry.
The largeish building with its typically Cycladic rounded edges.Depending where you are inside you can look to the east side of the island or to the volcano and beyond.
As with Fira, Firostefani contain a number of hotels. Both are picturesque and have a nice blend of cream and white variations in the colouring of the houses. Away from the cliff side view Firostefani has a less stunning part as well. There are a few shops.

Encore une fois, les couleurs sont extraordinaires. Personnellement, j'aurais tenté d'éviter la voiture dans le cadrage.

io penso che la macchina non ci voleva proprio, che abbia un pò rovinato questa incantevole ambientazione così caratteristica e dai magnifici colori.
Un carissimo abbraccio

Hello Vojko, I think the beauty in this picture is the lovely stone wall in the background. It is very well made and it could have been built yesterday or 200 years ago. I am afraid the boat is ready for scrap and perhaps the car is in the same condition, but if I were voting, I would say take the car. Ha Ha. It appears that you have some lovely flower on th right side by the wall which are almost lost in the picture. I like your theme however. Regards, Roger

Zaista divna kompozicija.
Prelepa tekstura zida i verdo nebo u pozadini.
U prednjem planu stari čamac i lep auto.
Puno lepih detalja.
Predivne boje,kontrast,svetlost otrina.
Perfektan rad moj prijatelju.
Molim te da me ne ocenjuje dok ti kritike ne postanu vaeće,razumeće imam malo kritika ovih dana tako da mi to i ovo malo poena smanjuje.

Dober vecer Vojko,
Hope now I am correct with timing definition :-)
Nice comparison of old and modern, advanced and ancient, progress and regress.
Have a wonderful weekend,

A very simple photo, and yet very interesting, Vojko.
Funny title, but when car replace boats, our planet changed a lot, due to the use of fossil fuel.
Good color's compo.
