Description

Following the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano near Reykjavik, Iceland with billows of smoke drifting across (northern) Europe and which caused numerous flight delays and cancellations, the opportunity was used to carefully pursue the setting sun since volcanic ash can lead to very dramatic sunsets. The image below was taken a few kilometers from the seaside resort area of Oropos northeast of Athens and whose history dates to the time of the golden age of ancient Greece. The foreground evergreens (and homes barely visible) lie atop a hill at an altitude of approximately 35 meters (100 feet). The photo was taken from a distance of 640 meters away to the east of the setting sun so as to yield a reasonable balance in the aspect ratio involving the foreground evergreens and the setting sun.
