A simple but, I think, very effective photo of an Orthodox Church "spire" in Oia, Santorini.
Another photo from Oia, on the top of Santorini, taken at sunset.
The sunset at Oia, on the top of Santorini, casts a warm glow over the traditionally white buildings. Photos like these are cliches, but so what - it's so popular because it's so good, and lives up to the hype.
Oia, a village at the top of Santorini, is rightly famous for its sunsets, which cast a warm glow on the traditional white buildings. This church is on the cliff facing the caldera.
When traditional stone buildings lose their roof they are usually are completely ruined in a few years. This walls of this Greek Orthodox church have survived many years because it's on top of a dry mountain, so has not been overgrown by vegetation.
