Last Day on Santorini

Since the ferry to Crete did not leave until evening, I had one more day to spent on the lovely island of Santorini.

I chose to take photos and sketch.

View from Firostefoni looking towards the volcano on Nea Kameni.

Looking North with the island of Thirasia in the background.

Looking South towards Fira, Santorini's capital.

The magnificent village of Oia.

I have a fascination with olive trees; their gracefulness, curly carved trunk, silvery thin leaves, and the profusion of olives. I created a sketch of one tree while waiting for the ferry to Crete.

Since returning home, I am on my second watercolor painting featuring olive trees.
