Greek Sunrise

I shot this image early summer morning in Monemvassia, Greece, just as the rising sun was beginning to paint the medieval city a soft pink.

Later that day, I proceeded to climb the rock you see on the right, not once, but twice and I can tell you that it’s steep climb, especially when you do it on a hot summer day with a heavy backpack full of photo gear. The view from above is great, though, and will repay you of all the sweating and swearing.

The original version of this photograph is a stitched panorama, 14,213  pixels wide. You can’t see it here at full resolution, but I’ve uploaded it also on Google+, where you can use the scroll-wheel or the trackpad to zoom in on a desktop browser and appreciate all the details. See the post here.

In the past few days I’ve posted other wide panoramas on Google+, exploiting the fact that it alone, among other social sites, lets you zoom into large images with ease and I think this is just awesome.

See more wide panoramas from me here, here, and here. The last one is more than 24,000 pixels wide!
