Set in the wall of the caldera, this typical little church overlooks the picturesque beauty that is the town of Oia on the volcanic island of Santorini, Greece.

une vue typique de Santorin avec ses escaliers omniprésents et ses si jolies petites églises. Une belles couleurs sous une jolie lumière. Merci pour le partage.

What a charming small church. It looks like an image from a fairytale, so unreal.
Well seen, have a good day.

Hello Brian ,
It is allways a pleasure to see your pictures from Oia . Superb perspective and composition here , with the tiny chapel , the beautiful bougainvillea , and the paved stairs in the FG .

The steps are a good invitation to step in and explore further. The red façade of the church makes a fine contrast with the whitewashed buildings. I like the light and colours. Very good sharpness.

This place looks like a labyrinth of narrow streets and stairs, great photo with Mediterranean architecture, beautiful little church, excellent photo

Surely this place must be the most picturesque in the world, stunning coasts, steps going up down and around and the famous white and blue tones of the buildings. You created a really inviting scene with this composition, the steps beg me to walk down and explore all the little nooks an crannies, while the purple flowers bring such an incredible sense of additional color. It also looks like it could be a triffid and might grab you as you walk past!
Thanks as always

questa facciata che con il suo colore caldo si distingue dalla grande uniformità del paesaggio greco fatto di bianco e di azzurro è una eccellente occasione per una foto bella e nello stesso tempo originale.
L'hai inserita in un piacevole contesto creando attorno ad essa una composizione molto ben costruita che la luce del sole esalta molto bene.
Con l'occasione ti auguro un buon fine settimana ed una buona Pasqua.

Beau point de vue en plongée sur cette église au pied de l'escalier et sur les toits des maisons. Les couleurs sont très attrayantes. Bien fait.

Jolie composition verticale exploitant bien la surprenante façade orange de l'église. Belle vue plongeante sur ce paysage typique de Santorin.

Beautiful composition, nice light and shade with the steps giving depth. Nice blue hues with a ferry/cruise ship at anchor at Fira in the distance.

I guess on this island photo opportunities are on every step for those who care to notice them. Well done for spotting this one and presenting it so lovely. The whole composition is well organized so all the chaotic lines of the view somehow make sense together. Very good POV which uses the steps to the church as an eye leading detail. Very well managed light and well saturated colors.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day
