An image you've probably all seen somewhere before.
Every evening the crowds head to an old ruined castle in Oia
to watch the sunset and this image was taken from there.
many thanks for votes for yesterday's Hamlet in Santorini.

Superb image Kate. The silhouette of the mill and its sail is crisp and the colours in the sky superb - one of the best from your Greece series so far.

Spot on. These types of images are often emulated but tough to bring something new to, you have captured the sunset but also brought just enough information to bring new interest to the subject. Steve

A lovely backlit capture in glorious colour. You have magically got the light
in the dead area which adds to it to make a top picture. Well done. WesternRed.
