This is a nice view on these pines with tortured figures. Their roots seem to grap the soil in a desesperate effort not to be uprooted. Good natural colors and the point of view gives deepness.
Sergiom (54655) 2013-12-17 3:52
Ils ont pris de très drôles de formes ces pins majestueux. Probablement à cause du vent en bord de mer. Le point de vue nous donne une belle image profonde et d'une grande netteté.

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Endroit merveilleux pour se reposer, faire une petite sieste et une fois reposé découvrir ce lieu magique.
Très belle réalisation.

Nice beach with the aged pine trees. Has a nice perspective and depth. The roots are looking good along the sea shore.
mesutilgim (80112) 2013-12-17 4:42
Hello dear Danos,
Very nice capture of this aged pine trees at seaside.
Very good compo and nice side light creating a perfect feeling of depth.
Many interesting notes.
TFS and best regards
jmdias (52706) 2013-12-17 4:50
in Portugal they are named (pinheiras= female pine trees)probably because its seeds are eatable.
very nice image using well the shapes of branches and trunks of these beautiful trees. TFS.
kato (11630) 2013-12-17 4:59
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a row of pine tree along the beach. It seems that it is planted in the ground and there is a vitality. And, it's also impressive in curved beach line at left side.
mirosu (12558) 2013-12-17 5:41
Beautiful photo of coastal pine forest, so typical for Mediterranean area. The warm light is superb and the viewpoint excellent. Well done.
Fis2 (82006) 2013-12-17 6:38
Excellent POV and colors.
Very well done.
ourania (26518) 2013-12-17 10:33
τι όμορφα που είναι αυτά τα πεύκα στην παραλία, τι ενδιαφέρουσα η μορφή και η ιστορία τους, τι όμορφες αναμνήσεις έχουν προσφέρει με τη σκιά και το άρωμά τους! Μου αρέσει πολύ η αλληλοδιαδοχή τους μέσα στο κάδρο και ελκυστική προοπτική που τους έχεις δώσει. Οι υφές είναι εκπληκτικές, το φως και τα χρώματα έχουν μια γλυκειά, χειμερινή μουντάδα, που βρίσκω συναρπαστική καθώς τη θέα αυτή την έχω δει από κοντά μόνο καλοκαίρι. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
pierrefonds (54984) 2013-12-17 15:58
The distance between the trees and the beach is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the trees. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
nikkitta (13316) 2013-12-17 17:12
Interesting note, good to know this is a national park and will remind that way
Good composition but...I must said the roots are like dead fishes with the same bright, quite impresive
Regards, and tfs
Corry (4508) 2013-12-17 21:08
Une pinède assez particulière avec tous ces vieux arbres dont les racines sortent de terre. Belle lumière qui permet d'apprécier l'endroit. Bien fait.
subhendu_bagchi (25258) 2013-12-18 0:07
namaste Danos, a simple but balanced composition here with this pine forest and you got here a nice depth with f/22. Nice sharp detail with 1/4 sec of shutter speed. Like it a lot. Tfs.
Have a nice time.
krzychu30 (15332) 2013-12-18 0:10
ahh,pines are so lovely subject for photographers.
You were able to create really magnificent and very charming composition here!
Well considered POV and frame combined with so lovely,vivid colors make your shot captivating.Also you´ve managed to utilize the light in a best way!
Have a nice day
ikeharel (52411) 2013-12-18 2:00
The big and probably old trees park stretchs along and near the beach, as we can see. There is a good depth through the grove, in fine clarity and pleasent colors.
The place is popular as you wrote, and the reason is merely becouse in summer the trees give shades almost to the waterfront.
Light managed superbly, with no backlight effect.
Noel_Byrne (20860) 2013-12-18 3:34
What a brilliant scene, this looks like something from pre history! The gnarled and twisted appearance of the trees is brilliant, and I love how the roots poke through the ground like that. I can easily see a T Rex walking in this place on the hunt for lunch. Even reading your note, I can get a feel for this being a particularly ancient place, and your photo conveys that perfectly.
Thanks as always
jhm (135274) 2013-12-18 3:56
This are all very old pine trees, you chose a very well angle nice between the trees.
High quality picture, an excellent subject.
Excellent composition, nice presentation
Very well done, TFS.
Graal (95401) 2013-12-18 9:29
interesting forms of pine trees here. Nice group near by sea. Fine photo from your archive, is well done.
Have a nice evening.
marina7 (8049) 2013-12-18 11:45
sure tree roots can be very impressive. Nice point of view here and good light. The trunks look pretty artistic.
Thanks and best wishes!
jcpix (11478) 2013-12-18 16:29
I could see this as being a rather generic scene, but your smart composition has made for much intrigue as these trees have been carefully placed to create a strong perspective stretching down the coast. The compressed focal length keeps them in a tight formation, but still spaced and allowing for depth as they progress inwards. Making the most out of relatively minimal material, and the controlled exposure has enhanced the mood with soft light and warm tones. A nice place for a quiet walk, yes? :)
elenimavrandoni (14241) 2013-12-18 19:25
Δάνο, εγω τον θυμάμαι τον Σχοινιά..πηγαίναμε εκδρομή με το σχολείο..πάνε κάτι χρόνια...πάντα είχε αεράκι και μου άρεσε πού τα πευκάκια είναι κοντά στήν θάλασσα..πολύ ομορφο χρώμα και φώς εχει η φωτογραφία σου πού ετσι κι αλλιως είναι μια υπέροχη ανάμνηση για μένα...ευχομαι να προλάβεις τίς δουλειές σου σήμερα!!
μια καλημέρα νάχεις απο κάθε άποψη..
fabbs99 (15731) 2013-12-18 23:49
Lovely view of the Pine Forest.Lovely true colors and good light .
Very well done. TFS.
ChrisJ (94802) 2013-12-19 9:24
Nice repetition of the evenly spaced trees along the esplanade with the fg tree appearing to very nicely break the pattern. Good sharpness and textural details with the emerging tree roots adding interest at left. Tfs!
Silvio1953 (116035) 2013-12-19 10:38
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with fantastic trees, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
adramad (35429) 2013-12-19 12:32
A beautiful view of the pine forest, I like the graphics that give their trunks curving in different directions, perfect pine trunk first, giving formidable bark textures, curious these roots that seem to crawl across the sand.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I Like
Enjoy a good night.
mcmtanyel (10569) 2013-12-19 21:13
I love those tree trunks going every which way. I prefer this kind of pines to the conical pines we get around here.
COSTANTINO (51403) 2013-12-19 22:54
Καλημερα φίλε μου
μου άρεσε η συγκεκριμένη φωτογραφία
γιατί κοιτώντας τη προσεκτικά
έχω την αίσθηση οτι τα δέντρα
κινούνται και πιστευω ότι αυτή
ειναι η επιτυχία της
εαν αφήσουμε ελευθερη την φαντασία
μας μπορούμε να εμβαθύνουμε περισότερο
Cricri (101459) 2013-12-20 11:27
Des formes spectaculaires des arbres avec ces énormes racines sortant de terre, bon cadrage et réalisation
UlfE (14639) 2013-12-21 4:08
A really fine composition. Your inclusion of a tree trunk in the foreground both adds depth to the scene and it an excellent lead in to the group of pine trees further away. Some people and a glimpse of the sea also contribute to the attractiveness of the scene. TFS. I wish you a Merry Christmas.
geoant68 (2751) 2013-12-21 7:37
εξαιρετική παρουσίαση του κομματιού αυτού του πευκοδάσους του Σχοινιά,ενός από τους πνεύμονες της Αττικής.Οι ρίζες που έχουν βγεί από το χώμα και 'περπατάνε' στο έδαφος κάνει την όλη παρουσίαση μοναδική.Ο φωτισμός και τα χρώματα είναι ιδανικά για Χειμωνιάτικη φωτογραφία,
NorthernLight (1493) 2013-12-22 9:47
pines are also found here in Sweden. Your pines look as if they wanted to walk on their roots. I like that very well, because also trees are living things and so I have fun on such ideas. I shot a similar photo on the shores of a lake in Sweden last August.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
sabermonajati (8919) 2013-12-22 10:26
nice forest with interesting trees you captured.
Miguel82 (20376) 2013-12-23 5:10
So beautiful nature capture Danos, pine trees on the sea shore growing in the sand, good light and excellent resolution
Merry Christmas to you and all relatives
shevchenko (19051) 2013-12-23 19:06
Good pov and good frame to show a lovely view on the coast, good perspective, all these trees are looking good in baeutiful shape, distinct photo, thanks for sharing a fascinating nature view.
siudzi (32381) 2013-12-27 2:37
This place reminds me some areas located close to the Baltic Sea in Poland. Very beautiful capture taken with superb color management to achieve a really charming visual effect. TFS!
aleXundar (1256) 2013-12-29 8:50
It is a wonderful beach scene with old pines. The pov is unique. The roots coming out of the land is nicely placed in the fg. Great colors and clarity.
Thanks for sharing a great shot sir,
zoomer (6) 2013-12-29 15:55
Those trees are so interesting and beautiful and tempting to walk among them.Superb image quality with natural colors,friendly regards Wolf.
mkamionka (29259) 2014-01-01 9:31
beautiful composition. I like the trees and their roots which make plenty of curves in the frame. Location of this forest is great near the coast. Very attractive presentation with a beach appearing further in the distance.
Happy New Year!
fanni (14377) 2014-01-04 5:51
