The Greek islands? Looks are deceiving!

It has to be Corfu, or Crete, or one of the other Greek islands, right? You're in for a surprise! It's looking south from the Noarlunga foreshore ... Noarlunga is one of the "outer metropolitan" suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia! The day was blisteringly hot, but there was a breeze off the sea, just enough moving air to move a sailboat. Conditions were very bright -- excellent for photography, if you take charge of the exposure. Digital cameras can confuse themselves in extremely bright conditions, so the 'M' setting is a godsend.
