While the weather in Central Europe was still trying to heave itself out of the wet & cold theme – I was lucky enough to head to Greece for a week of sunshine at the very end of May. I have never been to Greece before & I absolutely loved it and so will definitely going back!
I travelled to Santorini for a weeks photography with my friends from Light & Land. There is so much to photograph on this lovely island- I could have spent a lot longer there and not run out of material. We were based just outside of Oia on the northern most part of the island. We were up early and out late every day to take advantage of the light.  This time I’ve tried to group my images into themes – of which there were many. 
The colour blue – Santorini is renowned for it’s blue roofed chapels – but the blue is everywhere if you look carefully!!
We were accompanied by many a dog and cat during the week & then there were those that were just enjoying the sunshine. 

One of my fellow photographers is a fantastic people photographer – and is also exceptional at managing to photograph people without them noticing. Inspired by some of Neil’s work and with so many opportunites I couldn’t help but try.We also had a very willing subject – early one morning -an elderly gentleman enjoying the peace and quiet before the day really started, who gracefully accepted to be photographed. 

Windmills & Urns
Details, details, details !!
We took many a sunset and sunrise and this was my favourite. So kind of this beautiful ship to appear in our view – rather than one of the huge cruise ships!
Most of the below were taken just after sunrise in Oia. There were very few people around, it was so calm & peaceful – I loved it – an experience to be repeated. 

love, Claire
