The photograph was taken in the mountainous village of Platanos on the Greek island of Samos in the Aegean Sea. It is a village surrounded by red soil sources. In the past the inhabitants used to paint their houses red in the summer months, so it was almost invisible from far away, as it was becoming one with the ground. Yet, in autumn when it started raining, the soil washed off from the houses and the village's houses were visible again.
I find it beautiful because it combines all earthy elements (wood, stone, soil) with traditional architecture and the sunset is just additional luxury!
