Finally back from Greece. Went a little crazy with the photographs, I couldn't help it. These pictures were taken with Binocam, a combination Bionoculars and camera, so they were all taken at a great distance. They didn't really work for the sports events (too much action), and they don't do Meteora justice (not enough perspective). Still, until I develop our regular camera photos, check these out, some are quite beautiful.

This is a 15th century monastary built atop the narrow mountains of Meteora. This was the finale of my trip to Greece and quite possibly the most beautiful place I've ever been. I had dreamed of visiting Meteora for years after seeing photos of it on the walls my favorite pizza place, Olympia pizza in Seattle, where The Habit would regularly hang out.
Santorini at dusk, a little hazy, but still beautiful. On top of the red cliffs of the ancient volcanic crater lies the town of Thira. When you sail into the harbor you are surrounded on three sides by these steep cliffs, and at first it looks like the white walled cities are actually snow.
