Santorini, Greece The whole island of Santorini was shrouded in a stifling haze of heat, but I wanted to include the distant volcano of Nea-Kameni in this shot, so I was prepared to wait it out. I sat for hours in the searing temperatures, watching the effects of the lengthening shadows, and the sun bouncing and reflecting off the whitewashed stone walls. By midday I finally saw the effect I was after. The powerful contrast enhanced the textures of my subject, and the splash of primary colours give the image a classic Greek feel.
