This week’s second winner was taken on Santorini, a Greek island in the southern Aegean Sea, which is the southernmost member of the Cyclades island group. Santorini was formed after a massive volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a previously single island, and created the current geological caldera. The oldest signs of human settlement in this territory date back to the Late Neolithic period (4th millennium BC). Modern day Santorini is a thriving tourist destionation with a small wine industry, drawing the visitors in. Its traditional architecture is similar to that of the other Cyclades, with small cubical houses, made of local stone and whitewashed with various types of volcanic ash used as paint.

This lovely sunset photo was taken by Jean Claude Castor, a photographer based in Berlin who specialises mostly in panoramas, landscape and architecture photography. Like his Facebook page 030mm – Photography to receive more of his stunning shots in your news feed.

And the last photo for today was taken in the valley of the Kamchiya river, Varna province, Bulgaria. The Kamchiya is the longest river on the Balkan Peninsula and flows directly into the Black Sea. Its valley is a UNESCO-listed biosphere reserve. Most definitely it looks like a beautiful place to visit.

This amazing atmospheric photo was sent by Martin Vasilev. For more photos of this Bulgarian photographer, subscribe to his FB page or visit his deviantart profile.

    I love to see pictures from unfamiliar places. I just returned from Belize and have about 1K pictures to muddle through.
