Photographer's Note

There are so many beautiful spots in Santorini, for example, Oia, Imerovigli, Fira, Firostefani, Pyrgos, Akrotiri, where you can enjoy one of its famous sunsets! This spot, where I took this photo, above Athinios port is not considered one of them, but if you ask me it's one of the best.

The problem that day was the weather. Too hazy, too cloudy, too misty, certainly not the ideal conditions for a typical and representative Santorinian sunset photo, but still good enough for an atmospheric one, I think. From this point of view you can see part of the caldera and two islets (below the sun), Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni, on which you can visit the still active crater of the volcano. Behind the two islets you can see (or guess) the shape of Thirasia island, the one "closing" the circle of the caldera.
