Artist's Description

The last evening of a travel tour is always met with a mix of emotions. You are on such a high due to the amazing experiences and the people who shared them with you. Your trying not to think that it will all be over tomorrow, and quite possibly you will never return to these places, or see these faces again.

This photo was taken on my last night of an eight-day sailing tour around the Greek islands. The remaining ‘Frank’s Crew’ members (names after our skipper) trekked up to Oia, the furthermost point of Santorini’s high cliffs to watch the famous Oia Sunset. It was spectacular. Arriving early paid off, we found a restaurant dangling on the edge of the cliff. This ensured a prime viewing position, and meant we didn’t have to fight the tourist crowds who flock to Oia… it seems you can’t keep a spectacular sunset a secret.

We toasted our fabulous tour, our skilled skipper, awesome new friends, our developing sailing skills, glorious Greece, and of course, all the wonderful sunsets and food!

As the last rays of sunshine collided with the calm Mediterranean sea, I dared one of the girls from our tour to climb onto a local’s balcony so I could capture her, in her crisp white dress, with the signature Greek blue domes.

Unknowingly, I had captured what was to become my all time favourite travel photo. To me it captures the feeling you get when experiencing a remarkable sunset; serenity, calmness, being at one with nature, and truly feeling peace with the world.
