I will post them soon: the unique photos that you’ll never see on any postcard. Because I am such a proficient photographer? Nope. Instead, because I’ve come to the island of Santorini in Greece and snapped pictures of the beautiful blue-roofed churches and the caldera of a still-active volcano that makes the island chain while it was raining!
Yup. Glad I brought the Gore-tex. It’s working like a charm. After the eight-hour ferry ride from Athens, we’ve come to this charming and beautiful island only to have its vibrant colors subdued by the rain and mist. Even the Greeks are embarrassed about the weather as their tourist season begins.
It won’t make for the best photos, but no matter–they’ll be unique. I’ve got pictures from previous trips of statues with winter crates around them and churches with scaffolding. It’s become a habit just to go with it and remember that at least my pictures won’t be the run of the mill sun and surf photos!
The island of Santorini is obviously popular just because it is so photogenic, so I do indeed hope the sun comes out to brighten its colors before I depart. Not to mention, it’s actually kind of cold! We were glad to find extra blankets in the hotel! Who’d have thought it?
At least the Gore-tex is working. Thank you Mountain Hardware. Or maybe it’s the half liter of homemade white Santos wine I had? What do you think?
