An exceptional aerial photo which provides a panoramic view of the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion (Ναός του Ποσειδώνα, Σούνιο).

The image is an outstanding image which reinforces the majesty of ancient Greek architecture.

The picturesque promontory at Cape Sounion and the stately columns of the Temple of Poseidon. The Doric columns which still stand from over two millennia are a testament to the precision and aesthetics of the ancient Greek architects.

I hope you visit the newest collection relative to ancient Rome, which will include many of the surviving temples (one of which I posted earlier) and other amazing architecture attributed to the Romans. I hope you consider joining/following via the link below:

A spectacular black and white photograph of the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion (ναό του Ποσειδώνα στο Σούνιο).

The structure is without question, one of the most beautiful architectural examples built during the era of Classical Greece (ca. 440 BC)...don't you agree?

An outstanding photo of the promontory of Cape Sounion where King Aegeus leapt after believing his son, Theseus had died...today, it is the Aegean Sea.

A fantastic photo of the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion (ναό του Ποσειδώνα στο Σούνιο). Of the building's original 36 Doric columns, half of them still stand today and as a result, they validate this temple as one of the most picturesque structures in all of Greece.

From afar, the landscape of Cape Sounion may appear desolate, however, thousands visit daily to view the splendor of its Temple of Poseidon.

Despite the ominous weather, this is an absolutely fantastic photograph of the Temple of Poseidon at the site of Cape Sounion (Aκρωτήριο Σούνιο).

Even with the possibility of inclement weather, due to the temple's location which is surrounded on three sides by the Aegean Sea, this is one of the most picturesque landmarks in all of Greece.

Emphasized the dramatic feeling of this image, the weather turned so bad, it was magic as Tim Burton’s movies

Cape Sounion Aκρωτήριο Σούνιο is noted as the site of ruins of an ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in classical mythology. The remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea.
