Twilight in Santorini
December 2, 2010

Santorini, Greece

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel and Adventure Photos I went to Santorini toward the end of the season last year, when most of the shops on the island started shutting down for the winter. I wanted to get a nice twilight shot of the often photographed Oia. I used the meter on the camera to expose the shots, but it was consistently darker than what I had hoped for. So for the heck of it, I just left it exposed as long as possible, and the color just took on a life of its own and the town became a beautiful model doll.
