Happy New Year

An end to another year and the spectacular sunset over Tilos seen from a very cold and windy Vigla on Symi.

The clear conditions allowed us to see far and wide. The island on the left in the below picture is Halki but behind it is Karpathos confirmed by a compass reading and plotted on a map at about 110 kilometres. I've seen this once before on Symi after the air has been cleared by rain.

And finally the Angel of the North (Justine) next to the windmill on the Vigla at 617 metres above sea level.
