The Most Instagram Worthy Island: Santorini Photos

Santorini is a photographer paradise: white-washed houses, volcanic rocks rising over the ultramarine sea, blue and white chapels, color contrasting flower pots and sunsets over the old windmills are doomed to look good on the pictures. These Santorini photos are the outcome of the four afternoons I spent on the island strolling in the villages above caldeira and hardly letting my camera off my hands.
