Greece: Santorini with Ron Rosenstock


Ron Rosenstock invites you to join him on an adventure of Santorini. If you have ever dreamed of a leisurely trip to the most picturesque Greek Isle, with enough time to photograph, and merely enjoy with no time pressures, then this is the trip for you. Spring is one of the best times to visit, as the weather is lovely and it is prior to the summer influx of inhabitants which doubles the population to approximately eleven thousand.

Days will be filled with unique photographic opportunities, in that there are so many wonderful hidden places to explore. Your leader will seek out obscure settings to visit and photograph, places you would not find on your own.

Santorini, Greece is known as the home of one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. Discover the famous submerged caldera, the volcano’s crater, which is situated today in the middle of a thirty-two square mile basin of water. The accommodations are superbly located with fantastic views of the caldera and the colorful buildings of Fira, yet far enough away from the cruise ship action. Around the basin, hanging on cliffs of 150 to 300 meters in height, one can admire some of the most beautiful traditional villages of the Cyclades. The lively colors of the white Cycladic houses and blue painted windows contrast stunningly against the black volcanic rocks rising from sea. This scenery inspires artists and visitors alike. A few of the villages are named Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli, and Oia, all of which entail many steps on each of the daily outings. The island name comes from ‘Santa Irini’ and it is officially called Thera.

Join Ron Rosenstock in Santorini—exploring the iconic photographic locations of this picturesque island. Photograph the rich architectural colors, distinct blue domes, whitewashed buildings, brightly colored flowers, and warm friendly faces, against the blue Mediterranean sky.
