Oh heavenly day, indeed!

Sometimes you have to dig, but if you muck around awhile there are always gems to be discovered on Flickr. And then, there are those rare photos that transcend the rest of the best and truly transport you to another place. In this instance, a sun-kissed vision of picture-perfect Oia on the Greek Island of Santorini. Now I've looked at a lot of lovely photos of Oia, but this one, for me anyway, truly takes a piece of the proverbial cake. Delicious!

Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - tahnijoy - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!

Location: Oia, Santorini (Greece) ★

  1. thank you for the kind words about the photo! this place is near and dear to my heart, as well as this photo. i took this photo the day that i got engaged!! while traveling around greece, my then-boyfriend met me in santorini and surprised me with a proposal!

    the photo was taken at sunset, which as people say- is one of the most beautiful sunsets to be seen in the world.

  2. My pleasure! And congratulations on your engagement/marriage. What an idyllic day/setting for a proposal. How could you, how could anyone, possibly say no in a setting as romantic as Oia at sunset?

    I'm not sure if you used a tilt-shift lens to get this shot, or if the effect was in post-processing. But bravo. This and a selection of your other images of Greece are truly delightful. Thank you for sharing them on Flickr for everyone to enjoy.
