The Volcano


Actually an island enclosed by the ring-shaped main island Thera in the background. The still active caldera sits behind me.
Santorini, Greece

You have been so many places and have taken so many beautiful photos! I'm so impressed! You could do some wonderful travelogue slide shows...

The only thing that bothers me here is the word, "active." :-)

Estou de queixo caído! (em Portugal essa expressão também existe, correto?) Já estive em Santorini, é um lugar impressionante mesmo, mas o ângulo que você tirou esta foto é algo que nunca vi, fascinante!
God bless you!

The dark lava in the foreground gives away the active caldera secret. I love the color of the water.

Were you also on the yacht shortly after you took this beautiful panorama? If you were, you are one lucky globetrotter!

This place has always sounded fascinating to me. I didn't realize the colors were so beautiful.
