Photographer's Note

Anafi is a small relatively unknwown island in Cyclades, just east of Santorini. In fact only through Santorini can one visit this place by boat which takes 1 1/2 hours. However this place has some of the best unspoiled beaches in Greece.
Besides that, Anafi -the name means something that appears suddently- is a Rock. In fact it is the second largest rock in the Mediteratian sea after the Rock of Giblartar. The legend says thet the God Poseidon heard the plea of a sailor that was nearly drown and made this rock to appear so that the sailor would get refuge. The stip rock is about 750 m height and the north face is almost vertical. On top of the rock there is -what else- a church. In Anafi there is one vilage about 450 m from see level in the highest area of the village there is a small square with - what else- a church
This picture was taken in that square, facing west to the island of Santorini. You see you can enjoy beautiful sunset not only from but also facing Sandorini.
