Back in September, we were on the beautiful Island of Kos in the Aegean Sea. We were there to see our niece get married and I was tasked the wedding photography. As a former wedding photographer, I was more than happy to oblige. But, it’s this photo I shot from the venue at sunset that stands out for me.
This shot, looking north, is one I have envisioned for a while. That soft glow of the sunset, the powdery mountains and islands in the distance, and those golden tones. It’s all there.
I’m immensity proud of this photo and it’s one I am having mounted and framed on our wall…somewhere.
The Dodecanese in the Aegean Sea
The island of Kos is part of the Dodecanese island chain in the Aegean Sea. The islands are known for their medieval castles, Byzantine churches, beaches and ancient archaeological sites. On the largest island, Rhodes, the medieval Street of the Knights and Palace of the Grand Masters show Byzantine and Ottoman influences. Kallithéa and Ialissós are popular beach resorts, and Lindos’ acropolis has panoramic coastal views.
