Calendar 2012: Colours: July

The photo


I took this photograph in the evening light on the boat that brought me from Santorin to Paros in the Greek Cyclad islands in the Mediterranean Sea.

As the sun was going down the light went in a silver color where a fishing boat appeared only as a shape and Ios island far away in the horizon.

The color of the sea was then so close to the precious metal that it illuminated the whole scenery bringing wealth energy and reflection all around.

Best regards,

Jean-Louis Puech, Toulouse, France
