The alarm buzzed at 6:45 a.m. I did not want to get out of bed just yet, but I got up anyway and peaked outside our hotel room’s window.

Perfect! Just a few minutes left to capture the sunrise in Patmos.
I tried to get the best picture just off of our balcony at the gorgeous Petra Hotel & Suites.
I’m surprised by how fast the light changes. Dark pinks, pale purples and oranges soon fade. And then, look what popped into my view.
A large cruise shipping heading into the port.
And then the cruise ship turned around the corner. I’m sure it’s getting to dock at Skala so the tourists can visit Patmos for the day. Patmos is a popular destination for tourists because of the Monastery of St. John, the UNESCO village of Hora and its idyllic beaches.
I still have so much to learn about using the correct f-stops and ISOs to capture the best picture.
Enjoying the sunrise on Patmos was a wonderful way to start the day!

Great photos Joy. I don't think I'll ever learn EVERYTHING my camera does. I just keep experimenting and hope for the best.
