The above photo was taken on July 24, 2000 from the shores of the Aegean Sea (Gulf of Euvoia), in the district of Attica, Greece. From this picturesque coastal area, the setting Sun casts a golden glow on the sea as well as on the low hanging sky. Note also the beam of sunlight bouncing off the water towards the photographer. This is Sun glitter, which is essentially myriad tiny reflections of the Sun.
