Photographer's Note

Probably the most picturesque village in Santorini, Oia is located on the northern part of the island and is built on the border of the caldera. It is well known for its breathtaking sunsets and for its lovely windmills.

The shot was taken from Oia’s kastro, the ruins of an old medieval fortress or castle that dates back to the 1200s when Venetians governed Santorini. Jutting out into the sea, this outpost (theoretically) offers 360-degree view of the sunset.
