Photographer's Note

A view of the island of Patmos from the air.

Patmos is a very special island, I really love it and always wish to have a glimpse of it from the airplane. On my way to Athens it was covered by a very thick blanket of clouds but on the way back to Leros the clouds were fewer and I enjoyed seeing Patmos again. When we passed it and as the plane was descending towards Leros, I looked back and saw this.

From Wikipedia:

Patmos (Greek, Πάτμος; Italian: Patmo) is a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea, most famous for being the location of both the vision of and the writing of the Christian Bible's Book of Revelation.

One of the northernmost islands of the Dodecanese complex, it has a population of 2,998 and an area of 34.05 km2 (13.15 sq mi). The highest point is Profitis Ilias, 269 metres (883 ft) above sea level. The Municipality of Patmos, which includes the offshore islands of Arkoi (pop. 44), Marathos (pop. 5), and several uninhabited islets, has a total population of 3,047 (2011 census) and a combined land area of 45.039 square kilometres (17.390 sq mi).
