This was taken on a little boat cruise out to the center of the volcano.

Beautiful pictures Indiawala. The second picture is spectacular. Is it a sunset or sunrise?

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for your comment Macnite...this is a sunset. I was staying on the cliff side of the island...which faces such its a great place for atmospheric sunsets (unfortunately when i was there..there weren't too many clouds in the sky)

Very nice! Really like the detail in the first one, and the color in the others. Jim

WOW! Very nice photos. I am amazed at the clarity of the first one. Beautiful job.

Did you take these with a Panasonic? Did you need a special telephoto lens for the city shot?

Thank you for sharing your photos with us.They are allawsome.

Thanks for all your comments...

to the question of what camera it is that I use, its the good old FZ20. The first shot had a polarizer attached to it, but thats about it.

Its a panorama stitched together using panasonic's software that comes with the FZ's. Here is another shot (a panorama) taken of the city Athen's from atop the Acropolis.

hope you like it

great shots! the FZ20 still holds its own, doesn't it! :G it's interesting how those resorts seem to like putting swimming pools right at the edge of the cliff... nice view while louning in the pool!

Thank you everyone for your comments, I appreciate the fact that you got some pleasure out of these.

As to the pools being right at the edge, overlooking the ocean...that must be the thing because every inn on the cliff side of santorini had these infinity pools. Once in the pool, you would feel like you are part of the cool actually.

As to the comment of the polarizer, that was one of my first investments once i got the FZ20. If you have enough sun light, there is nothing better than a polarizer to bring out the colors and tone down the reflective glare. I would highly recommend it.

I was in IOS in 1990. Incredible places those islands...


Payton Aug 14, 2006 3:33 AM

:cool:I did not know you took so many wonder photos on so many of those wonderful vacations !

Raghu Aug 14, 2006 6:11 AM

Nice to hear from you again, Seth. Going by the pictures, it must have been a wonderful vacation. The first panaroma pic is very well done; I liked the others too.


LoveLife Aug 14, 2006 2:52 PM

Nice going my favorite is number 3.

D.Ann Aug 14, 2006 6:29 PM

Beautiful, beautiful shots....makes me glad I have a panasonic. Donna

I can only echo the others - great pictures.

I must admit I didn't download any of the Panas software as I use PE4 and haven't had much success with panaramas. After your post information, I'll have another go

on photograph #2, did you have a reflector to bounce light back onto the chairs in the foreground? It adds a depth to it.

Also on #3 your arrangement of the lines saysmuch for your artistic look. They all speak to each other. Very well arranged.

Andrew Waters Aug 14, 2006 9:24 PM

I was wrapped up with the mentioned pictures I forgot to say ''kick ass'' on the other ones.:-)

Between you and Donna you're both going to spark my interest all over again. This is a reference to the hummingbird and wedding photos Donna. :-)
