Recalling Santorini - Part III (Sea)

See always attracted me starting from my childhood. Indian Ocean and Bay-of-Bengal is very different from other seas. Sandy beaches, mild waves, wide sea shores delight me. But Mediterranean is something which is incomparable. The deep blue green colors, mild serene breeze and kaleidoscopic flora and fauna in the clean water mesmerize me every time.

kaleidoscopic flora and fauna in the clean water

Here I am sharing some of the views of sea I have captured in Santorini.
Santorini has a variety of beaches. One side of the island has cliff and typical beaches like red beach and white beach. Then couple of black beaches (some images in my past post). On the other side it has rocky sandy beaches.

Here I uploaded some pics for red beaches.

This is my last post on recalling Santorini, it was wonderful experience to visit that island and I will cherish my memories in future too.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am leaving Greece on 17th Oct ’07 for good and will stay in India for next few months.Thanks for all your support and I am glad that you enjoyed the posts and pictures. This blog was started as a private blog almost a year ago (when I was the only reader). But slowly I started sharing it and got positive responses from my blog friends and I would like to continue the journey of this blog.

I thought to put “India” in front of my blog name. Any good suggestion will help me to make it better. Thanks and Have a nice weekend.

It's amazing! I visited this blog weeks ago,but the new pics r fabulous....speciallly like those red-beaches n the pics of 'flora and fauna'.....fantastic!

Lovely pictures. And you are tight - in Greece, the color of sea and aky is amazing [Well, this is from your photos, rather than my own experience :-D ]

Great pictures; I agree that the blue from the Greek part of the Mediterranean Sea is absolutely stunning!
Sorry for having been a bit absent lately, but I was abroad on a professional trip last week. One day I’ll probably show some pictures from a somehow unusual destination...
Trying to recover some time, I’m posting on Germany (Koblenz, December 2005) on Blogtrotter.
Have a great week and a safe trip back to India!

Great photos mate, especially the second one is brilliant! I see a general blue tint in many of these photos - maybe you should check the white balance settings?

Everytime I see your Santorini pictures, I am motivated to rejuvenate our cancelled plans. Did I ever tell you that we were planning a trip to Greece but it ended up being to Switzerland (not that I regret it) ?
