Part one of the roads leading to Zappeio edifice.
Harsh the light of the day,it was about 13:οο,but i think it was managed with the better way.
80,000 square metres (860,000 sq ft) of public land were allocated from the Greek Parliament in 1869, between the Palace Gardens and the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus for the building works of the Olympic Games", as the Zappeion was the first building to be erected specifically for the revival of the Olympic Games in the modern world.
It will be a good experience for someone visiting Athens,to stroll in this beautiful area enjoying the calmness and the tranquilitty,as the dense shadows of the trees during the Summer.
The jacaranda tree,are that you see,which is native to Mexico, Caribbean and South America is a beautiful flowering tree with vivid lilac-blue trumpet-shaped flowers. The jacaranda has many species and the most common and popular is the blue jacaranda tree or Jacaranda mimosifolia, because the foliage of this tree resembles that of the mimosa. It can grow from a height of 2 meters to a beautiful tree that is 18 meters high. In autumn, the leaves of the jacaranda which look like feathers, turn yellow in color and the leaves along with the trumpet-shaped flowers fall to the ground. Some people also believe that if the flowers fall on you, it is good luck.

Un luogo per riposare ....
Certamente la foto i grandi alberi ...forse lagunarie mettono voglia di riposo e quiete .

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Très belle invitation à emprunter cette magnifique allée bordée d'arbres fleuris.
La présence d'un personnage, fort bien placée dans la composition, dynamise la composition d'une bien belle façon.
Très bonne journée.

Excelent depht and good POV.Very nice colors.
Have a nice day.
jmdias (45830) 2012-06-11 3:11
very beautiful this street addorned with trees covered with flowers, I guess it is a jacarandá-mimoso tree, native from a region near of my state. In Buenos Aires they use it a lot. nice light, framing and sharpeness.
jacquest (14192) 2012-06-11 4:08
THis is a nice presentation of this alley with a lot of deepness. The lady creates perspective. The colors are well saturated under a good light.
timecapturer (30394) 2012-06-11 4:35
what an amazing place, yes tranquil but the colours here are just so incredible. Superb light management makes the trees look so beautiful and I would just love to stroll along beneath them. Wonderful!
Have a good week - Brian.

mirosu (5533) 2012-06-11 7:22
This is a crazy good artwork, beauty of the nature in great details. Excellently composed with very tasteful color contrast -purple against green & blue. The great light add some some extra bonus. Very well mastered photo Danos.
maria-v1981 (10403) 2012-06-11 7:47
Ένα υπέροχο μέρος να απολαμβάνεις την βόλτα σου. Τα δέντρα έχουν ένα πολύ όμορφο χρώμα. Και ο γαλάζιος ουρανός τελειοποιεί την σύνθεση.
ciakgiak (30331) 2012-06-11 8:37
è di questi posti che abbiamo bisogno per ritemprarci l'anima e lo spirito. Molto bello questo viale fiancheggiato dai bellissimi jacaranda viola.
Perfetta la luce, eccellente la qualità ed i colori.

ourania (12469) 2012-06-11 9:52
τι όμορφη εικόνα, τι ελκυστικό μέρος για περίπατο, πόσο μακριά δείχνει από την κουρασμένη Αθήνα. Μια άλλη πραγματικότητα την οποία θα πρέπει να εκτιμήσουμε και να προστατεύσουμε όσο της αξίζει. Τα υπεροχα ανθισμένα δέντρα δημιουργούν εξαιρετικό βάθος και προοπτική. Τα χρώματα και η ατμόσφαιρα είναι θαυμάσια. Το λαμπρό φως της Αττικής, που διαχειρίστηκες πολύ επιδέξεια, δίνει ζωή και γλυκύτητα στα πάντα, κάνει τις σκιές συναρπαστικές. Τι ωραία που θα ευωδιάζει αυτός ο δρόμος! Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό βράδυ,
Budapestman (82620) 2012-06-11 11:00

bayno (16241) 2012-06-11 14:43
lovely purple flowers on these trees, the color contrasts well with the clear skies, excellent cutting panoramic, would have been also a nice large version, interesting note, perfect exposure with excellent depth...ragards,
kato (6801) 2012-06-11 15:02
This is a romantic avenue lined with trees of a skillful purple flower, so you're capturing this scene by a good angle and panoramic view. It's impressive in the color contrast of purple tree and tree with green leaves, too. And, the shadow projected to the avenue draws out an additional good atmosphere.
Have a nice day.
pierrefonds (48387) 2012-06-11 17:19
The trees are framing well the road. The length of the road is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the flowering trees. The good luminosity is giving vivid colors. Have a nice day.
edge (6068) 2012-06-11 21:01
Hello Danos, Good shot despite your comment concerning the light. This is a very picturesque location and the jacaranda are beautiful, and the compostion is very inviting.
However I have one in my backyard and one in the front. Their blossoms fall on my yard and they follow the Palo Verde tree I also have. For about four weeks, I see only purple from the Jacaranda and yellow from the Palo Verde tree. I would never plant them again. They were small 15 years ago, but now. aaagh. Sorry I got on that, Ha ha. However in your picture they are beautiful. I also learned something about them. Good notes. Kind Regards, Roger
lousat (57724) 2012-06-12 4:05
Hi Danos,magnificent choice of point of view to create this beautiful perspective,the contrast between the purple flowers and the blue sky is really fantastic,great details and rich composition,i like it!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
jlbrthnn (79773) 2012-06-12 5:52
This walkway, lined with flowering trees, is beautiful. The depth is remarkable. Excellent exposure, and good sharpness. Bravo.

Tranguil and beautiful! Nicely captured with good light management. Great pov and dof with sharp details. I'm glad you included the person for sense of proportion. Wonderful colors. WEll done, tfs.
raszid62 (18216) 2012-06-12 9:28
Μια υπέροχη λεωφόρος λουλούδια στο πάρκο, στο κέντρο της Μεγάλης Αθήνας. Τα χρώματα των λουλουδιών στα δέντρα είναι απίστευτα όμορφη. Αυτό το πάρκο ήταν κάποτε ένα υπόλοιπο μετά από μια μακρά περιοδεία της ελληνικής stoliy. Υπέροχες σύνθεση σε άριστη ποιότητα και όμορφα χρώματα.
mauro61 (52527) 2012-06-12 12:51
tranquilla immagine con il viale alberato con i tanti fiori lilla.
Buon controllo della luce,
adramad (27556) 2012-06-12 15:15
Certainly this beautiful composition, conveys an atmosphere of peace and an ideal place to relax, these trees are a beauty and this walk around full of them is wonderful and gives a great perspective to the composition.
Very nice light day, which gives as good sharpness and colors so fabulous.
Have a nice day.
josepmarin (55063) 2012-06-13 1:05
yes, the light of the midday was harsh, but you controlled it perfectly, and caught a few very interesting shades.
I like the deep perspective of this promenade amidst a few beautiful jacaranda trees, with their flowers of lilac-blue color, and the serene and calm atmosphere that offers us.
You have obtained a high quality of colors and of light, as well as a great sharpness in the image.
A beautiful work, my friend.
amaryllis (30149) 2012-06-13 1:37
quelle magnifique rangée et allée d'arbres fleuris et leurs ombres où il doit faire bon de prendre un peu de fraicheur
ChrisJ (86932) 2012-06-13 4:24
The Jacaranda tree grows exceptionally well in northern NSW & SEQ (south east Qld). Surprised to see them doing well here in Greece too. The people add scale & the diminishing linear perspective is superb. Excellent sharpness. Tfs!

Geia sou Danos
Eventhough a mimosa flower didn't fell on my shoulder, I fell very lucky seeing such an elegant alley adorned of the most-beautiful spring colors!
abmdsudi (26311) 2012-06-13 8:41
Good shot, beautiful blooming trees domintang much of frame and rightly so. But the puplish color is always the attraction as displayed here at the same time they provide outstanding contrast to the background and the whole scene. Grand image of this splendour trees, superb framing, well managed lighting in good weather Another fine shot. Well done
emilbo (20872) 2012-06-13 9:44
Vraiment magnifique ce chemin bordé de lilas, il me semble sentir le parfum. J'en ai plusieurs dans ma cour mais la floraison est pratiquement terminée. Belle présentation et le personnage humanise la scène. Excellent rendu des couleurs.
Cordiales salutations du Canada,
claudeD (24201) 2012-06-13 10:15
Very fine contribution to TE. Excellent composition, fine colors and good sharpness. Amazing location for a walk or a rest.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
Hansaphotos (5449) 2012-06-13 10:21
What a great place for a stroll. There is a good colour contrast between the flowers and the green trees in the bg. The fallen flowers on the ground and the shadows from the trees makes the scene evocative. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling
asajernigan (19669) 2012-06-13 12:07
You choose a nice POV here using these colorful trees to frame the scene while the road leads us through the shot. The person walking provides a sense of scale for the shot. The lighting is great as is the photo's sharpness.
Graal (88982) 2012-06-13 23:39

This is a very beautiful path taking the viewer to Zappeio edifice. Beautiful jacaranda trees with purple blossoms lining on both sides of the path. Nice light management, colors and atmosphere.
Angshu (51174) 2012-06-15 1:12
Beautiful boulevard of the jacaranda trees with the beautiful violet colours. The person provides scale & is important to the composition. The pano format suits this well. Good work!
nikkitta (5904) 2012-06-15 9:32
Great and beautiful capture of the Jacarandas that also here in Argentina are in full blossom announcing Spring in September
Great colors and deep with good POV
And yes, it s a pleasure to walk under the Jacaranda and to seat and enjoy the view as people did on the benches
Congrats and TFS
Waylim (22357) 2012-06-15 16:00
I love this tree, There are a few in my neighborhood and when they bloom it is glorious, it painted the whole street with th elovely lavander purple. Excellent hsot here with good composition, the little person walking adds to the liveliness and some of those resting under the trees as well.
Excellent quality photo with gorgeous colors.

I love these trees, one of them very high was on the road leading to the school (it is there actually :-) ). I was expecting spring to see it flourish in its beautiful color. so, this a pic that leads to me of nostalgia..
have a good week
