Fantasy Island

Fantasy Island

The famous town of Oia, on the island of Santorini, Greece, you’ve been there, you’ve ‘fought’ the crowds, you now claim that half square meter of real estate as your ‘spot’, and finally, as the sun dips towards, the horizon and then below the western horizon line, the hillside crowds erupt into applause, and the evidence of this memorable sunset is unmistakeable as you view your camera’s monitor, another line is crossed through your bucket list, a footnote that reads, “initially crowded, but soon most everyone departed, leaving but a handful of ‘us’ to shoot during the blue hour”...this western view, this blue hour exposure that included the lone windmill a composition that later is destined to be combined with that of a full moon, a full moon that rose in the east, a year earlier, in southern France...but now, placed into this western sky, that ‘French’ full moon, ‘setting’, near dawn, in the utter quiet and stillness of Oia, on this ‘fantasy’ island of Santorini.
You keep shooting
