Our little paradise

Our Little Paradise by V-Light

I took this photo in August of 2011, while camping on the beautiful island of Samothraki, Greece. It was a hot summer morning and we started the hike to the famous “Vathres” of the island. On the way there, we got to see some nice waterfalls and many little lagoons. It was really beautiful but also people crowded. As we got higher, the hike was getting more and more demanding so there were less people around…And then we got on the top. Words could not describe. After hours of walking and hiking under the hot sun…This literally felt and looked like paradise. We were alone up there…All this beauty just for us! We immediately threw our backpacks on the ground and dove in the refreshing water. I actually took this photo while being in the water. I placed a mini tripod i had with me on a rock and used an aperture of f/22 and a 2.5 second exposure to make the water look silky. A few little specks of water on the lens created this weird effect that makes the image look more heavenly. The only post-process i did was to add a bit of contrast and sharpness. A magical place indeed…
