Scenery in front of a restaurant's beach in Marmari.
Marmari is a very known touristic destination of the South Evia island and very close to Athens.In ancient years it was a important exporting center of marble from its port,so and its name,μάρμαρο-marble.
Its economic growth of the region even in our days too depends from the slate rocks and particular to the slates,named 'slates Karystou'.
Today,Marmari spreading in a picturesque and characteristic natural semicircle,has been developed in a center of vacations and is an ideal point for exploration of the South Evia.
In the Summer months is full of people and in Winter months is transformed in a quite fish village.

geia sou dano,
it is interesting the name of the place, as you know, we have marmaris in turkey with similar beach scenes.
in may beaces are still empty, maybe housing some lucky people who can go there so early in the year. nice pot of plant enjoying the sunlight over there :)

Very colorful shot of the blue waters and the decorative flower pot kept by the restaurant owner probably.Perfect composition and sharpness.Attractive capture in great contrasts and colors.Did'nt notice the points,but 6666 sounds good.TFS.
Have a great Sunday,

I think that´s the best definition of great vacation.Beautiful,sunny weather and the beach with palm and even an umbrella:)Excellently composed scene with delightful,well-saturated colors.Quality is also superb.
Have a nice sunday

The distance between the parasol and the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the beach and of the sea. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

A good alignment of the three elements over the water with the mountain in the distance. The colors are natural with interesting contrast.
ikeharel (74825) 2013-06-30 5:18
A picture that convey well yielding to summer. Nice allocated the space over the image.
Here, summer is in full swing already.
Noel_Byrne (32544) 2013-06-30 6:11
A beautiful beach scene, like a perfect advertisement for this restaurant. I am taken aback a the beautiful color of the water. The fact that you composed the parasol and plant so well, and still included the boat makes this a really nice shot. A place I would rather like to be right now!
All the best
parvatibb (1387) 2013-06-30 6:22
as if the sea is a waiting for us to jump in. Beautiful composition and great trio: sea, sun and beach!
Enjoy your Sunday
jmdias (66403) 2013-06-30 8:58
not usual to find big vases at edge of the sea in a beach. nice use of the shapes here. I liked the light and details too. TFS.
papagolf21 (105410) 2013-06-30 9:09
Bonjour, cher Danos,
Je m'imagine assez bien sur la plage en train de contempler pareil paysage.
Un rêve éveillé !
Très bonne soirée.
ourania (48838) 2013-06-30 9:18
η θάλασσα είναι λαμπερή και πανέμορφη και το τοπίο απέναντι φαίνεται ενδιαφέρον. Η λιακάδα ζωντανεύει τα χρώματα και την ατμόσφαιρα και το καϊκι ελκύει την προσοχή ως μια σημαντική και χαρακτηριστική λεπτομέρεια. Κατά τη γνώμη μου αυτό το σκηνικό είναι υπέρ-αρκετό για τους θαμώνες του εστιατορίου και η γλάστρα μου φαίνεται περιττή και κάπως αστεία σ' αυτό το σημείο. Είναι φοβερό πώς κάποιος θεωρεί δεδομένη αυτή την όμορφη θέα και θέλει να την "εμπλουτίσει" :)
Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή εβδομάδα,
Romano46 (18472) 2013-06-30 10:56
bella e semplice nello steso tempo.
Con pochi elementi hai saputo rappresentare al meglio la bellezza del mare e del paesaggio greco.
Un ombrellone, una pianta che proviene dai climi caldi e l'azzurro del mare attorno al quale le colline disegnano dolci profili.
Un vero incanto che con la tua foto hai condensato in maniera ottimale.
Ciao e buona domenica
Fis2 (102462) 2013-06-30 11:25
A lovely place!
Good frame and colors.
Photo has climate.
tedesse (25135) 2013-06-30 11:56
Beautiful summer view! Good POV and composition.
Wonderful colors and light, good sharpness.

interesting scenery, the umbrella looks alright on the beach line (though it's pretty close to the water) but what's that potted palm doing there? A bit unusual place for it, as it can be easily toppled over or washed away into the sea if the waves get strong.
Anyway, great scenery.
Have a good week!

Δάνο, μοιράζεσαι με μεγάλη απλοχεριά τής ομορφιά τής πατρίδας μας! Απλή και μοναδική ομορφιά, στο χρώμα και στην φύση..πανέμορφο μπλέ σμαραγδί, μοναδικό το λαμπίρισμα του ήλιου και εχω γίνει ποιήτρια για χάρη σου...
abmdsudi (56380) 2013-06-30 13:22
A stunning view to relax and to chill with the scene gets to concentrate on the amazing beach and its surroundings then watch the setting sun on a hammock. This picture makes me want to go on holiday as well and you can almost feel the comfort and peacefulness there. I applaud your effective compo and the sublime light and colours with the brilliant blue water brings lots of joy reflecting the true spirit of summer time, a shot that perfectly encapsulates the season. Very well done, TFS
dkmurphys (62129) 2013-06-30 13:27
Simple and very attractive capture. The elements are prefect for a holiday invitation. Good work!
Silvio1953 (148613) 2013-06-30 13:28
Ciao Danos, lovely scene with fantastic sea, wonderful natural colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
jcpix (13930) 2013-06-30 13:52
The only thing we have to see in Phoenix sitting outside of
a restaurant these days are the waves of heat rising from the pavement, this is much more enjoyable to see! :) Beautiful deep blues and plenty of sunshine, this is a type of scene most people tend to overlook or not see as a good photo opportunity. Well observed and arranged to make for an pleasing image. Thanks for the view. Have a great week ahead.
chrisvek (7001) 2013-06-30 15:24
Πολύ όμορφη λήψη και αυτή,με εξαιρετικά χρώματα και θαυμάσιο θέμα.Ίσως λίγο εξωτικό.Πανέμορφα χρώματα και βάθος.Πολύ καλός όμως και ο φωτισμός.Συγχαρητήρια.
Καλό μήνα εύχομαι
mcmtanyel (25654) 2013-06-30 16:42
I was about to say, "This reminds me of Marmaris in Turkey." I am sure Marmari and Marmaris are essentially the same words and what a coincidence that they look alike!
kato (11630) 2013-06-30 18:15
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm/beautiful sea in front of beach and low mountains of backdrop. It's arranged well for the beach parasol and the jar with big plant on the beach. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color combination. And, a boat at right side draws out a good effect in this image.
emka (102708) 2013-06-30 23:54
How wonderful it would be to sit in this restaurant with such a marvelous view. Quite simple composition but so attractive. I like this straw umbrella and the marvelous color of water. I would like to jump into it.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2013-07-01 3:17
namaste, here you presented a nice calm place using a nice POV. Like the layers very much. Nice mountains at background while the umbrella and vass are proving depth to it. A nice image indeed. Tfs.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-07-01 9:47
Indeed! Beautiful summer scene nicely captured with good pov and it has good dof with nice details. So simple but beautiful. Well done, tfs.
mohammad_H (10052) 2013-07-01 11:34
Hello dear friend
With stunning views of the beach awesome background, blue sky, beautiful colors with attractive scenery, beautiful picture added to the pot in the foreground, good resolution,
Have a nice evening
Angshu (56760) 2013-07-01 23:50
This new post from you is refreshing as well as idyllic. Well balanced composition with the plant, the parasol and the boat with the deep blue water creating a fine backdrop. Well done!
Glint (6171) 2013-07-02 9:53
you tease me with your blue pictures of Greece. It is grey and raining today here in Scotland. Having just returned from Corfu I now want to return again. Excellent graphical foreground interest with the composition strictly following the rule of thirds.
kordinator (21295) 2013-07-02 11:26
I like this lovely seascape in blue tones.
Impressive photo of this lovely beach.
Nice summer scene.
mesutilgim (96318) 2013-07-02 12:00
Hello dear Danos,
Nice compo of those competing "shadowmarkers" !
Again interesting notes makes your entry a good TE entry.
TFS and best regards from Archipelago ! Most probably my "coolest" blue trip I've ever made.
jemaflor (100223) 2013-07-02 12:09
Perfcet title for this view, pleasant composition, beautiful light and blue sea, tfs.
claudeD (40377) 2013-07-03 7:05

nikkitta (17066) 2013-07-03 12:08
Congrats to discover such beautiful unspoiled places in your countryy
Lovely composition that includes the balloon and the ship on the water
Like the sutured colors and the shining of the sea

Geia sou Danos
The ballerina standing at left as well as the tiny palmtree located next to her on beach are powerful incentives to fly to Greece and enjoy the serenity of such peaceful scenery enliven of the turquoise colors at sea!
bayno (18344) 2013-07-04 3:53
simple and pleasant composition, wonderful blue tones and a very good summer mood...
josepmarin (58359) 2013-07-04 8:22
the parasol and the plant are two good elements for to feel the nice atmosphere of the summer, and for to dream in our next vacations.
You caught it under a fantastic light, creating a beautiful composition with the splendid coastal landscape in background.
Well done, my friend.
dip (23890) 2013-07-04 12:29
Ευχαρίστως θα ήμουν τώρα εκεί αντί στη Γερμανία Δάνο.
Όμορφη φωτογραφική σύνθεση με το φυτό να σπάει την μονοτονία του μπλε,
χαιρετώ και καλό βράδυ,
Indrasish (2943) 2013-07-04 23:15
great shot here.. You took this shot maintaining good composition.. Superb image quality too.. very well done..
Have a nice day and cheers,
Cricri (122649) 2013-07-05 11:45
Une composition exotique qui rappelle bien l'été, particulier la plante au bord de la mer, bonne lumière et couleurs
mkamionka (39201) 2013-07-07 12:35
very simple yet beautiful composition. I like these two elements in the foreground. They provide silhouettes which for most of us are remind vacations. The beach is lovely and so is the view across the bay. Fantastic well polarized colors. Pleasure to look at,
geoant68 (331) 2013-07-08 21:28
Δάνο γεια σου,
όμορφη και καλά κροπαρισμένη φωτογραφία με τα τρία στοιχεία να δεσπόζουν του σκηνικού και να έχουν για φόντο την θάλασσα.
Πολύ ωραία το χρώματα και το φως της ημέρας,
delpeoples (59186) 2013-07-08 21:56
Kalimera dear Danos
An idyllic place for a restaurant with such unspoilt landscape and scenery. The c,ours are vibrant, creating a wonderful sense of summer and freedom. The umbrella and the pot plant balance the image very well.
Thanks for sharing, have a happy day
serp2000 (45072) 2013-07-08 22:13
Very nice simple composition! I like this sea view, attractive colors, but the palm and umbrella are just a base of this picture. Well done!
Greetings from Ural!
maloutim (9639) 2013-07-10 20:48
Very pleasant panorama seen through this parasol and plant ! Great composition showing a very inviting place.
I hope you are enjoying the summer.
cornejo (44743) 2013-07-11 5:05
Hello Danos, back here after a few days of absence on holiday. Excellent picture of this beautiful and interesting summer composition, very well captured in this interesting and beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Excellent and beautiful work well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this super interesting work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Urs (14082) 2013-07-11 16:26
Marmari, I have read a lot about the destination, but so far I never visited. It must be a very nice place to stay, but I would go there in the off season. Too many tourists change the character of a destination. Good photo job
mirosu (16273) 2013-07-14 6:19
I'm glad to hear from you again. I was searching for your photos on 500px but without success. I like this composition with umbrella and small palm tree in FG. The BG is excellent. All in superb light. Well done. Greetings, Miro
adores (46079) 2013-07-16 14:46
Amazing how the flower pot is so close to the water. It's a nice summer shot - I like the colours and the composition, with the elements so well placed.
gervaso (15835) 2013-09-03 9:28
Beautiful composition, and it's curious how the vase looks like a pineapple! Light and colors are excellent! Wonderful job!
COSTANTINO (67380) 2014-01-29 22:41
Good morning my friend
