THIRA

SantoriniThira, popularly known as Santorini, is a Greek island located in the southern Aegean Sea. It was the first stop of my Eastern Mediterranean cruise and I was looking forward to taking gazillions of photos of this famous island. Imagine my disappointment when we arrived on a cloudy day with rainshowers about every hour. Everything looked dull and gray with my photos coming out stark and somber. Later in the evening, after a sumptuous Greek dinner, I decided to go up the topmost deck of the ship and noticed that the sky has cleared. The city lights sparkled in the distance highlighting the rim of this volcanic island while this behemoth of a yacht created an interesting juxtaposition to the island. I took about a dozen photos and this came out to be my favorite. Gladly, I also captured a few stars tossed all over the thinly clouded evening sky.
