Santorini

Santorini

January 13, 2017

Vancouver, Canada-based wedding and lifestyle photographer Henny Hwang is a frequent traveller who was finally able to cross the Greek island of Santorini off her destination list. Enjoy her words and sun-filled photos…

Santorini has been one of my dream destinations for more than a decade. The breathtaking views, white cubical cliff houses and the most perfect sunsets were just as I had imagined. Actually, even better. Once the divine sun hid itself below the Aegean Sea horizon, the moon rose high and outlined the layers Santorini’s rugged landscape. Each day was spent exploring the island’s volcanic beauty and each night we sat out on our patio and fully embraced the tranquility.
