Santorin (neugriechisch Σαντορίνη (f. sg.), Sandorini, meist Santorini transkribiert, von italienisch Santa Irene) ist der Name eines kleinen Archipels im Süden der Kykladen sowie von dessen Hauptinsel, die im Griechischen zumeist Thira (griechisch Θήρα (f. sg.), nach Transkription aus dem Altgriechischen Θήϱα auch Thera‚ was ‚Jagd‘ oder ‚Jagdbeute‘ bedeutet) genannt wird. Santorin wurde 2011 von etwa 17.430 Einwohnern bewohnt. Seit der Verwaltungsreform 2010 ist es unter dem Namen Thira gleichzeitig eine Gemeinde (griechisch dimos) in der Region Südliche Ägäis.

What a lovely old sailboat, very close against the coast.
The rocks and different boats care for an excellent picture.
But your picture is wonderful, pleasant to look at.
Your picture exudes calm, excellent sharp and clear.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Most times we get to see the Santorini-Caldera from atop, Wolfgang. I admit this is first picture I see the cliff from sea level.
Marvelous earth phenomenon, stunning steep rocks, and the sail-boat passing added a beautiful dynamic scale to the pictyure.
Impressive, well taken perspective.

That is quite a galleon you have captured, nervously close to the majestic precipice. Well seen and nicely rendered.

I did not realize that Santorini originates from Santa Irene. I have always dreamed about having vacation on that island. Nice presentation here with the coast making an attractive curve in the frame and the boats adding some interest.
Very well seen and captured,

a very delightful scenery, even though the weather looks a bit cloudy, the scene immediately evokes summer holidays. In my opinion, it would be better to have the cruise boat further on the left, against a chromatically different backdrop but I realize we often have no command over the arrangement of all the elements in a scenery. I like the sense of depth and the colours, there are interesting details and textures all over. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

I don't remember this photo. Very well done! I like this impessive composition, this photo could be placed to a wall, as a masterpiece. This island reminds me other places in Greece, near Corfu.
