Valei by foukou Valei by foukou
This photograph shows a large portion of the village of Ia located on the island of Santorini in the Cyclades of Greece. It is likely that most every tourist who has visited the village of Ia and had a sence of exploration has this exact or a very similar photograph.

When I took this photograph, I made sure to include the bell and cross structure on the right to balance the right with the left of the photograph. Besides that, not a whole lot of artistry went into the production of this piece. It's beautiful just by itself.

Taken in the same location as "Ria," " Ixalt," and "Illunima" in October, 2004.

Fantastic shot, whether you put too much thought into it or not. I really like what you did with the cross, otherwise you would just be showcasing the town (which is beautiful on it's on, but still).

I love the shadows and the tolling bell. Nice to see the mountains beyond also. Exquisite details ~ I could just step into your photos and live here in my fantasies.

I love the soft pastel colours that all the houses are. :)
And the smooth shapes as well.

It sort of reminds me of corfu, though I've never been there. :p
