Sunset in Mykonos

In photography, the golden hour is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky.  (Source: Wikipedia)

Let me tell you, the golden hour in Mykonos is one of the best photo ops you will ever get!

During the day, the town is crisp white and cold blue, at sunset the whites turn into blushes and the blues into soft lavenders shades.

Mykonos Town literally turns gold.

Walk around the town while trying to avoid the crowds of tourists (they have heard of the golden hour in Mykonos too!)

Find a spot on a terrace, order a glass of wine and let planet Earth do its thing.

The sun hitting the sea is such a beautiful sight that you may hear some emotional gasping and applause.
