It was my second day in Santorini, the meltemi wind brought some rain and clouds. I climbed the town and was checking the view of caldera.
Here we can see a small island, it is the stopper of the volcano and it was created in the 1950's, behind it is another island that was the ancient stopper. AT right we can see Thirasia Island, part of the ring of the original crater.
Tomorrow I will show you the island above the volcano.
I like how you composed this photo. What a view, what a wonderful place to sit and to marvel. The cruise ship is a good scale for the dimensions of this crater. However, in spite of all this beauty and grandness one mustn't forget that this is the caldera of a sleeping volcano ...
By the way, you shouuld add the map view here.
Greetings from very rainy and cool Germany! Have a nice weekend!
Like Kath writes, it is like an art postcard or an image in an interior design magazine "how to decorate your balcony". Very nice the terracota pot in the corner with the cacti plants on both the sides that someonew planted for decoration. Needless to mention that you want to grab a chair and enjoy the beauty of this view, of course with a drink in one hand and something to eat in the other :-)
