Santorini – the morning still !

For a long time now I have wanted to put you in a position to see certain images through my eyes. To see what I see. To experience certain times of day the way I do. The following clip is not long… just over a minute. But its long enough to let you get a glimpse of the magic of what I call “the morning still”… looking out over the caldera at sunrise.

Call it yoga for the mind if you will ;-)

There is no soundtrack… no words necessary. Just the majesty of nature… and Rex.

The clip is dedicated to all my blogroll friends, as well as all of YOU… the readers.

Enjoy !

Oia Sunrise & life decisions

“You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.”  

–  Beverly Sills


These words can burn in your brain like a red-hot syringe. For years they ran through my mind.

This morning I woke up early and had a coffee outside. This is what I saw…




Oia – Santorini.

Yep…. good decision!



Santorini sunrise…

Sunrise or sunset?

Of the 1.2 million visitors to this islands every year, its doubtful that any more than 1% ever see what I consider the most beautiful sunrise in the world.

In the evenings they flock to Oia by the thousands to take photos of the famous sunset. The “sun-setters”, as we call them, hang off every wall, every roof top, every empty spot they can find to witness the magical sunset of Oia.

You’ll find none of them in the early morning though. If they only knew what they miss. Sunrise is the most peaceful, most serene time of the day on this island. On a calm morning the caldera below is like a canvas with the most sublime painting on it….changing each morning with the breeze, the cruise ships and the rare clouds that drift in during spring/summer. Sunrise is quiet, very very quiet. It’s the perfect time to think and try to take in the majesty of the vista in front of you. Sunrise is my time…..
