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!

You have an eye for this challenge, for sure. Also makes me want to go there. I had no idea there was any place in the world where ships could sail into the middle of a caldera.
It’s a beautiful place, the volcano in the middle is still erupting, and you can swim in hot volcanic springs beside the new volcano! The scenery on the island is stunning, and the walks are wonderful, we kept going from sea level to the top and back down again. There’s an ancient city too….. see I have another whole post or two just about Santorini…

I have been to Crete, but not Santorini, It was the last holiday I took Jack on, so exploring was limited, very limited.
I would love to spend more time exploring Greek Islands, they are so beautiful, and the sea is delicious. They told us in Santorini hat it gets ‘cold’ in winter, but I’m not sure they know the meaning of the word! We were there in the middle of September and had to constantly either go swimming or hide in he shade! It was HOT & the sea was delicious 🙂
