Photo of the Day #78: Blue Hue
It is amazing how colors can look different in different countries and circumstances. It was definitely so on my trip to Crete in 2005. The sun in Greece seems to shine a hundred times brighter and clarify everything. The Cretan architecture has a lot of white and blue hues, which somehow emphasize the blueness of the clear skies.
This blue orthodox church was on top of the village, up a steep slope, with a magnificent vista of the Mediterranean opening on us. I didn't go for the traditional post car picture with the sea looming behind the church. I decided to see what the interplay of the blue hues of the sky and the church would look like.
