Poseidon's Temple by taffy

Poseidon's Temple

We did an evening excursion about 70 miles from Athens down to Sounion at sunset (while waiting for @jyokota 's plane to arrive). The ruins of the temple are high above the sea and made for a beautiful setting.
After three flights and 22 hours, I'm home and working to stay awake til a reasonable time. Will begin catching up on commenting tomorrow -- and will be posting Greece photos I'm sure over the next week (or so).
this is so beautiful!

@bob65 Thanks so much!! The place was actually crawling with tourists if you look large. Lots of little dots of them. Fortunately, the temple was so huge that we all turned into ant-sized creatures!
