    Santorini is a small, circular archipelago of volcanic islands located in the southern Aegean Sea. It lies 200 km southeast from Greece's mainland. It is also known as Thera or Thira, forming the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands.
    Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion, destroying the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island, and leading to the creation of the current geological caldera.The volcano is still active, and the last eruption was in 1950, causing an earthquake that destroyed many villages on the island.
    Its spectacular physical beauty, along with a dynamic nightlife, have made the island one of Europe's tourist hotspots.
    When most people think of Santorini they think blue and white but as soon as the sun start to set the colours change dramatically.

    Camera Model: Nikon D300 , Lens’s focal length: 18-200 mm , Photo Focal length: 26mm, Aperture: f 11, 3 exposures bracketed and processed in Photomatix ISO: 200

    I aslo took a few more images of the same churches but a couple of minutes later as the sun was setting closer to the horizon. It always amazes me how quickly the light changes.
