Santorini (Greece): spring on the island (April 2017)

After a relatively rainy winter 2016/17, spring on the Greek islands was fantastic! Santorini, one of the most famous islands of the Cyclades, was no exception and offered a paradise for photographers: flowers and green everywhere, with the blue and white of the traditional houses and chapels. The following photos were taken during our Santorini photo tour in April 2017.
