The story behind the photo

A holiday trip to the island of Kos, Greece, resulted in several beautiful shots of the Kos town center and the island, including this sunset shot at Marmari Beach. A last swimmer crawls the sea, a small fisherboat is illuminated by the setting sun, and small waves gently roll up to the beach. Can it get any more peaceful than this? I don’t think so.

Shot with a Canon AE-1 Program on negative film which got lost over the years. Fortunately I had this very good and undamaged print sitting in the archive which I scanned and edited in 2021.
