Off to the Sea

I am off on holiday for the next week. It's Easter Break for my son's school and we are headed to Greece. Before we left Europe I wanted to photograph a place with white, white buildings and blue, blue sea, so we will be spending the week on the island of Santorini with a day or two in Athens.

To give you a taste of the sea, here is an image from the Cinque Terre, on the Ligurian coast of Italy. This region is more pink and green than white and blue, but beautiful nonetheless.

Even though I won't be writing here this week, there is a lot going on that you can participate in:

  • There is a new Exploring with a Camera topic: Rimmed with Light. Stop over and see how to capture this beautiful type of light. You are welcome to link up or share your images in the Flickr pool.
  • I just "officially" announced the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap yesterday and it's open for sign up! Yay! I hope you'll join in with sharing your artwork in the swap.
  • My first newsletter will arrive in your mailbox tomorrow! It will include a download of the Time to Blossom image I shared last weekend. If you haven't signed up for the newsletter yet, you can at any time. Just look for the form on my blog sidebar.
  • The Mortal Muses theme right now is "Here Comes the Sun." Share your images with "flare" with us here and you may be featured on the blog. I just mused on Signs of Spring on Thursday, come by and see the signs of spring blossoming on our blog.
I hope you have a great week! 


  1. Gorgeous picture! Have fun! :)

  2. Have a great holiday Kat. I would have chosen Greece for those colours too.

  3. Kat, can't wait to hear about your week. We have a trip to Santorini in the works for 2013 to celebrate our 40th anniversary! I'd love to have some recommendations.

  4. Oh, jealous over here! I spent 2 days on the island of Corfu when I was 20 and have always wanted to go back to Greece - still hope to some day!! The great thing about Europe is being able to go to different countries so easily. When I student-taught in Antwerp, we would take weekend trips to Luxembourg or Holland. Can't wait to see your pics. I'll check out the links.

  5. Good for you, Kat! Can't wait to see the pictures! I'm thinking of Greece as a great way to ring in my 40th year (next year). We'll see...

  6. Have a wonderful time, Kat! Santorini is one of my dreams!

  7. Have a wonderful time in Greece, Kat! Bring photos! ;-)


What's your view of the world? I love to hear yours too!
