Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Ermoupoli, Syros, Greece” by Matt Stirn

Matt Stirn’s dreamy image of a Greek island is our photo of the day. It’s Friday and we’re now fantasizing about going to the place where Stirn took this image.

“A long exposure in the city of Ermoupoli on the Greek island of Syros,” Stirn writes. “To capture the bright colors of the Mediterranean I combined two .9 GND filters and a Lee Big Stopper.”
