The Holy Temple of Virgin Mary of Chryssopigi was built in 1650.It is standing on a small rocky cape which is separating from Sifnos mainland, with a narrow sea channel. Inside the church you can see the picture of Virgin Mary which was found in the sea by fishermen and it is miraculous. Chissopigi is the protector of the island and there is a feast taking place, every year, the day of Resumption (40 days after Easter).

PaulVDV (23417) 2013-12-01 11:38
Hearty congratulations on your 7th anniversary here on TE!
The picture shows the three colours the way I remember the Cyclades look like in summertime: blue, white and brown.
The location of the church is extraordinarily beautiful. However a long haul to go there.
Best regards, Paul
Graal (99162) 2013-12-01 11:55

Nice panoramic view of monastery near by sea. Good composition and POV. Photo I like.
Have a nice evening.
siudzi (34119) 2013-12-01 11:57
What a fantastic place you have seen and photographed here! It looks really eye catching due to the white traditional walls style. With dark blue tones of the sea they created a stunning sight. Great one to celebrate your seven years on the TE! Congrats!
pierrefonds (58786) 2013-12-01 12:02

kato (11630) 2013-12-01 15:18
Firstly, ongratualtions for your seven years on TE!
This is also tasteful photograph with a good location and architecture, so it's interesting and impressive to see the rocky cape with curved line faced to calm/blue bay and the Holy Temple standing on the tip of cape. It's good at color contrast between brown, white and blue. Well composed and excellent tone/clarity.
fabbs99 (16803) 2013-12-01 18:15
Congrats for completing seven years on TE.You have a great contribution to this site and all of us should appreciate it.Keep sharing all your images and ideas for many more areas.TFS.
mcmtanyel (14989) 2013-12-01 18:59
Happy 7th anniversary! You are celebrating your 7th anniversary with a beautiful photo. I like the fact that the whole complex looks like a miniature from this POV. I also like your composition, the way you have place the cape as the leftmost element in the frame. TFS and congratulations!
mirosu (15102) 2013-12-01 20:17
CONGRATULATIONS TO 7th ANNIVERSARY.
You're capturing well this landscape scene by a good composition and bright tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see white church (temple) with elegant shape. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color balance of white, brown and blue. And, the calm blue sea water draws out an additional good atmosphere, too.
Very well done my friend.
jjcordier (77870) 2013-12-01 23:49
Une belle photo pour célébrer cet anniversaire. Merci pour ces 7 ans de présence sur TE et toutes ces photos partagées avec nous.
Noel_Byrne (26117) 2013-12-02 1:48
Sincere congratulations for seven years on Trekearth, you must have shared more beautiful images than all of the worlds tourism agencies combined, which shows so perfectly the purpose of this great site. Anybody anywhere can choose any location and see the most amazing places and scenes.
And what a brilliant and beautiful capture you chose to celebrate this milestone too. The temple itself is great, I always love the vivid white style of building as I don’t get to see this in real life, but even more beautiful that you composed it like this. Allowing so much of the scene to be the deep blue water, and the temple composed as you have chosen here is really a brilliant idea. Really nicely done, and thanks for sharing this and all of your great gallery.
Best wishes from Ireland
delpeoples (54185) 2013-12-02 2:50
Kalispera dear Danos
Congratulations on this milestone, 7 years have gone so quickly and it has been such a pleasure to be your friend and exchange photos, critiques and ideas. As I said to your countrywoman Ourania, it is appropriate that you post a photo of your beautiful country to celebrate this anniversary and also to demonstrate your unbearable link to the sea. A beautiful image, with wonderful colours and sharpness. I feel as though I am standing there with you, enjoying the magnificent view. Thank you for sharing and here's to many happy years together on TE.
timecapturer (49288) 2013-12-02 3:01
Happy Anniversary! Gloriously Greek image to celebrate this milestone. Little white walled churches and monasteries look so exquisite in this kind of setting, and you have captured this particular one just perfectly. Love it!
Have a great week - B.
ikeharel (60451) 2013-12-02 4:17
My best wishs Danos, have many more years of photography and posting wonderful places from Greece and elsewhere.
Fabulous blue sea in great contrast to brown and white. The small temple is on the edge of a vliff, notable position out to open sea.
Fine taken from a hill's top height.
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-12-02 4:24

NorthernLight (2323) 2013-12-02 9:20
of course, the history of this building is interesting, but the colors and their harmony with each other are what make me like this picture. The composition is - as always - just perfect.
All the best
ChrisJ (101844) 2013-12-02 9:55
Hello Danos ,

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Félicitations pour ces sept années passées sur le site.
Merci de nous avoir régalé avec vos magnifiques compositions. L'étonnement et la joie sont toujours présentes à travers vos réalisations.
willperrett (7682) 2013-12-03 4:18
First up, congratulations on your longevity on this site. Can't see myself maintaining such enthusiasm for so long! Your photograph is nice and simply composed, with the classic rule of thirds used. The restricted palette of colours too helps the graphic qualities, and of course the blue and white are synonymous with Greece. I guess this is a crop: I wonder what you decided to leave out.
josepmarin (57837) 2013-12-03 4:38
I'm sorry for the delay, but I want to congratulate you because of these seven years, sharing with us your good photographic work.
I like this high POV, which offers us a fantastic view on the coastal cliffs and the white architecture of this beautiful church placed there.
The chromatic contrast, the great light, and the image quality make a splendid composition.
Best regards, my friend,
Silvio1953 (126962) 2013-12-03 9:42
Ciao Danos, congratulations for seven year on TE and thanks for all your beautiful photos, great POV on lovely monastery, excellent clarity, splendid light and fantastic mediteranean colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
jcpix (13724) 2013-12-03 18:22
Wow, seven years. What else can I say, congratulations! :) So glad you decided to stay around, I have always enjoyed your talents from behind the lens. You continue to produce beautiful images, so I certainly hope there are many more to follow!
Case in point, this one here of course. The panoramic format suits this quite well, and I like that you've allowed for a good portion of the deep blue sea to fill the frame. It's a wonderful contrast to the little white temple as it sits on this outcrop of land.
Sharp detail, clarity and a simple understated beauty. Bravo! Keep 'em coming!
jmdias (57577) 2013-12-03 23:39
Marvelous view, the contrast between the brown the blue and the white is fantastic. TFS this marvelous sample of Greece.
congratulations for your 7 years here. in this time we find and lost many friends and had some patience to go stay.
Royaldevon (31873) 2013-12-04 0:29
Good Morning Danos,
This is one of those special places that makes Greece so individual for I have seen similar places, on other islands. These attractive white, religious buildings, built on rocky outcrops, make a link between land and sea, probably, also, a link between land and Heaven!
Your composition works well, the rocky promontory holding the focal building in a strong position and acting like a diagonal lead from the land, across the sea.
Have a lovely day,
Congratulations for your constant support of this site, posting photographs to inspire and please other photographers. I hope you will post many more. x x
subhendu_bagchi (25935) 2013-12-04 0:39

maloutim (9637) 2013-12-06 21:47
Congratulations for your seven years on TE ! May you post more photos for many years, for us to enjoy sunny Greece !
This is a beautiful church magnificently placed on the cape jutting into the deep blue sea !
The church is incredibly well-maintained, considering it's 400 years old. I wonder what the rest of the buildings are around the church.
Very good contrast between the three main colors : white, deep blue and brown of the burnt vegetation and rock at the end of summer.
Thanks for sharing.
HimalAnda (10011) 2013-12-07 1:42
That's a very nice landscape and the panoramic format is a very good choice.
npecanhuk (68238) 2013-12-07 2:38
Another wonderful location!
Another beautiful and pleasant-looking picutre!
Again, I miss more sharpness, but slim horizontal format, colors, light, chosen pov and, above all, composition are all excellent!
And I was going to forget it... congratulations for your 7 years here with all of us!!!!!!
