Greece and Turkey come together for this sunrise photo I shot on the island of Samos during a recent holiday. The Greek town of Pythagorian (birthplace of the mathematician and philosopher) forms the darker foreground and the mountains of a Turkish national park, the slightly lighter, receding backdrop. My sincere thanks go to the yacht owner who kindly provided some further (perfectly positioned) mooring detail.

It was 7am in the morning local time and the picture reminds me that early rising is not a real talent of mine. The picture was taken perched on the end of a jetty and my balance is not at its best before 8am.
