You may have seen this view before, as my lovely spouse, who is significantly more active on social media than yours truly, posted her versions literally as the sun was still coming up.
Me, I had to follow my usual process of deliberate cull and development, delaying this post by whole three months due to unfinished work from the prior trip. But the sequence turned out way too awesome, even if my hand-held approach meant high ISO, fast shutter, and a slight variation in angle. Small imperfections aside, now you have a chance to relive with me the gorgeous sunrise as seen from the terrace of our rented apartment in Pantanassa, west of Heraklion.
As a bonus, another morning, another sunrise, this time from a bit of headland in Anissaras, east of Heraklion.
It did not come out badly, but the best view was clearly right from our apartment. Amazing!
