    Some beautiful scenes there. Who knew China had so many great rock formations?

    I never thought of Germany as a particularly beautiful place but realized I am sadly mistaken. More than half of the photos that I thought were gorgeous were taken in Germany.

    Going to Greece this year, looked up that first image -- too bad it's so off the beaten path, that monastery looks amazing.

    There used to be a show on one of the channels I watch ( Discovery, TLC or History probably ) that was called " Baltic Coasts ". I was so disappointed when it was no longer on. They almost always showed places off the beaten path in the Baltic areas. They combined aerial footage with local customs and stories of the people and would visit some really interesting places in that region of the world.

    I've lived here (Bavaria) for nearly 15 years and it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful it is.

    If you have any opportunity to go to Meteori, take it. It is well worth a side trip. It is not just one monastery, it is a whole group of monasteries. They are all on the cliffs of a huge rock (sort of like Stone Mountain GA or Ayers Rock in Australia). It is a photographers dream location.

    oh I agree it's a dream location to shoot, but I don't think we can make it work.

    Looks like a 5 hour train from Athens, or a ~3hour drive from Thessaloniki. Hoping to at least get over to Athos while over that way -- and see some of those monasteries.

    I'm actually booking a private photography guided tour of Santorini at least. since that island is so beautiful, but touristy/crowded, I think going out with a local to the best spots is a good way to see/picture that island.

    Great move! I always look for a photo specific tour when I travel somewhere new. I have not been disappointed.

    he gets great reviews and the shots from people who take his tour are pretty good; a lot have mentioned that he engages the significant other armed with only an iPhone -- so that's a plus.
