Breathtaking Santorini TimeLapse Video Clip
The impressive tequnique of time lapse photography becomes breathtaking when Santorini comes into the picture. Our Island is famouse all over the globe for the unique cliffside caldera views, the picturesque white washed houses that seem to be dangling from the cliff, the breathtaking sunsets that each and every one is unique its own way. Spending each and every day on the cliffside here at Dana Villas we understand how unique each day is and even each hour is and no moment is alike. Every moment a different shadow, a different cloud, a different color in the sky, a unique horizon…..
Unfortunately it is not easy to capture the great diversity of the island views without being on the island for a long period of time but fortunately now and then professionals that do take time out of their busy schedules to appreciate the Santorini scenery (along with their cameras of course) present us with breathtaking footage that must be shared for everyone to see what is impossible to live when only spending a few days on our breathtaking island.
The below timelapse video is from the Cinematography Team of Studio Phosart and took an entire to year to complete. A breathtaking video that also features a rare eclipse of the moon over the breathtaking caldera night waters.
Thank you Milto, George, Joan, Chris and Vaso for the following breathtaking timelapse video
Following are amazing Photos shot throughout the year by the Studio Phosart team
On some summer mornings layers of clouds at low altitudes move past our island offering spectacular photography chances.
Photo taken from the Messaria caldera area looking North. Clouds pushed by West winds are climbing of the cliffs and moving East over the ilsand
Fog Clouds droping into the caldera bay over the cliffside towns. In this photo the cloud has covered Firostefani and is diving into the Bay waters
Sunsets like this are visible after mid september. Golden yellow and orange colors that occupy the sky reflect on to the caldera bay waters. On days like this the colors are so intense that even the all the white washed caldera houses take an orange shade.
This photo was taken from the Monastery of Profitis Elias which it the tallest island peak at 680m (2250Ft). The clouds are forced to climb the cliffside of the entire island leaving untouched only the tallest peaks of the Island. The Closest peak is the Town of Pyrgos and to the distance still visible are Firostefani , Imerovigli and the Skaros rock peak.
Magenta colored horizons with touches of yellow from the sun setting behind them
Cloud waves of purple, yellow, orange and blue colors move west over the cliffside town of Oia
Golden sunsets behind thin layers of clouds create picture perfect skies that reflect onto the caldera bay waters
Photo taken from Imerovigli. This fog has moved into the volcanic bay and is slowly covering up the cruise ships that are barely still visible.
Photo of Imerovigli taken from Oia. The light of the town lighten up the thin cloud passing over the town’s peak.
Thin fog on the cladera bay water surface is puched up the Volcanic island (nea Kammeni) by the west winds. In the distance bahild the Imerovigli traditional town is visible
The clouds in this photo are flowing from the right (East) to the left (West). The amazing thing about this weather phenomenon is that the cloud when they reach the caldera cliff side they fall into the bay like small waterfalls.
When the sun sets behind thick dark clouds it appears through the cracks shooting its rays in various directions
Another purple sky shot from the west Oia tip towards the Oia castle and south Santorini. On top of the castle travellers that have gathered to watch the amazing sunset are visible
The purple colors in the sky appear on just a few days during the year and are created by the colors the sun shoots into the sky above just a few minutes after it has disspeard behind the Aegean horizon
Bright yellow and orange sunsets behind scattered layers of clouds light them up to the colors of the sunset
A beautiful Sunset in the horizon behind Thirassia on a windy day. Scattered clouds decorate the sky with the sun light lighting up cloud tips.
One a few rare days of the year thick surface fog moves into the caldera. Sometimes the fog is up to 200m thick and the cliffside towns look like they are above the clouds.
Some days are so clear you feel that you can reach out and touch the Ships. In the photo in the far distance are visible the islands of Folegandros and Milos that are over 70miles away
A Very rare sky when after the sunset the clouds are colored ren from the darkening rays of the sun still lighting them at a high their high altitude.
Another Golden Sunset Reflecting ont0 to the sea lighting up the entire Sky with Orange and yellow colors.
