    A trip back in 2011 to the Greek Islands of Santorini, Mykonos, and Rhodes was a very special experience, and produced a good amount of images for me. Rhodes in particular produced a number of great sunset shooting opportunities, right outside the hotel room, even for the short 3 day period we were there. I would particularly recemmend Rhodes for sunset shooting!

    The first 2 are from the same sunset, minutes apart the 1st night we were there:

    Sunset at peak colors


    A few minutes later, with a cargo ship passing by


    Night 3, a MUCH smaller boat is dwarfed under a spectacular sky with sun and storm clouds both on display


    Comments and critiques welcome.

    These are really awesome Mike!!!

    It’s a bit hard to pick favorites, I might have to pick #3 with the way the colors of the clouds are reflecting off the water too. Then I would go with #1 and then 2.

    It sure sounds like an awesome experience!
