This week’s Weekly Photo challenge is called From Lines to Patterns
We see lines and patterns in the world around us, in nature and things man-made. Sometimes we don’t realize they’re there: on the street, across the walls, up in the sky, and along the ground on which we walk.
I was browsing through from photos of a holiday to Santorini (Thira) & was surprised how many lines and patterns I found.
Santorini is a volcanic island, the majority of the volcano collapsed into the sea in a massive eruption, one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history. The eruption occurred some 3600 years ago.
The eruption left a large caldera and may have led indirectly to the collapse of the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete, 70 miles south, through a gigantic tsunami.
The collapse of the centre of the volcano has been cited as the source of the legend of Atlantis.
I have lots more beautiful photos of Santorini, but I will save them for another post!
