A seiner, a sand bar and a container ship in the distance dominate this Associated Press photograph by Petros Giannakkouris. The traditional fishing boat sails by Cape Sounion, Greece at dawn heading into the Aegean Sea. Cape Sounion is the promontory at the southernmost tip of the Attic peninsula, a few miles south of the town of Lavrio, and 43 miles southeast of Athens. At the Cape (behind the fishing boat) on a stately bluff are the ruins and doric columns of the 5th century BCE Temple of Poseidon, God of the Sea.
