Parga lies on the Ionian coast between the cities of Preveza and Igoumenitsa. It is a resort town known for its scenic beauty. It is not far away from Lefkada, so I decided to go there for two days trip and did not get disappointed. This photo has been taken from the castle which is located on the hill right in the centre of Parga. Very easy to access it provides excellent view from almost every side.
More info: City amphitheatrically built, Parga is a picturesque resort situated between the coastal region of Preveza and Igoumenitsa and combines uniquely mountain and sea. One of the most picturesque and cosmopolitan places in northwestern Greece, the “Bride of Epirus”, the beautiful Parga challenges you to experience up close its long history, its diverse natural beauty and hospitality of its inhabitants. Parga is at a distance of 65 km. from the airport of Aktion – Preveza and the summer months is connected with the surrounding islands (Paxos – Antipaxos – Corfu) (wikipedia)

A wonderful image of a lovely place, good shot, good sharpness, depth and quality. Excellent and beautiful work well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

The town certainly has a nice setting. Its white facades and red roofs stand out well between the dark forested hills and the blue and green coloured sea.
The beautiful curves of its shore, the island and the top of the trees on the FG make a good composition.
Best regards, Paul

Good pov on this beautiful bay, nice blue water and contrast of light, tfs.
holmertz (31302) 2013-10-24 12:47
The town looks very beautifully set in the bay below the forested mountains. You were lucky to catch such a fine light falling on the bay and the waterfront. The yellow and red tones of the town make a fine contrast to the green tones of the water. An exceptional view and a very well composed photo.

A beautiful bay scene here with mountains and a friendly looking village. Thank you for sharing this moment.

Hi! Wonderful place and picture! Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent! I haven't been to Greece yet, but I would love to and this place seems to be out of the beaten track and só inviting! Cheers, Neyvan

Ahh yes, it's good to see these scenes back again. :) Such amazingly rich colors and elevated viewpoints to encompass all of the natural beauty that seems to abound. It never ceases to amaze the senses to view such clear and colorful waters...how I would love to be there now! A solid composition with interesting details from side to side, and I like how you've placed the pathway to make a natural curve and lead in to the center of the image. Beautiful! Have a great day ahead.

I like the composition and the nice view ;)
Although there is something that bothers me a little : there is a weird gradient from right (cyan) to left (yellow) that you applied to enhance both sea and village colors...
It's fine for the sea and village but it's turning the sky into an unatural effect to my mind ;)
Anyway, TFS and cheers ;)

a shot that amplifies why I love Greece. The light and view just captivating and beautifully captured. Who would not want to sit in this little haven enjoying the wine, food and atmosphere. Glorious!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Very nice capture, taken from probably the same place I took mine. Nice to see it hasn't changed since my visit. A beautiful place.
Thanks for the memories.

A very fine composition of this picturesque village of Parga and its bay. Beautiful colours and light.
Romano46 (11509) 2013-10-25 5:06
sei tornata e le ultime due fotografie sono dei successi!
Una foto di grande impatto caratterizzata da una composizione molto ben fatta e da colori molto piacevoli.
Al paesaggio aggiunge una nota piacevole l'ombra che in parte lo ricopre che aiuta l'occhio a soffermarsi sulle belle case colorate del borgo.
Perfetto anche il contrasto.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
Noel_Byrne (13356) 2013-10-25 8:13
this is a superb composition with the sweeping arc of the mountains swooping around the bay and the interest of the beautiful town scape. The color of the water and the sky are both perfect too
all the best

Dzięki za dobre słowo.
Twoje zdjęcie to klasyka kompozycji, uwydatniłaś łuk zatoki i urozmaicone tło, piękne swiatło i niesamowity kolor wody
ChrisJ (91286) 2013-10-25 9:07
Good sharpness and a superb high pov overlooking the picturesque harbour. Good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the azure sea and the yellow green foliage and red roofs. Nice repetition of the fishing boats in the bay. Tfs!
Nicou (105809) 2013-10-25 11:14

Cricri (92185) 2013-10-26 3:30
Tout bon le POV, des couleurs magnifiques et une douce lumičre sur le village de bord de mer, la transparence de l'eau et le fond montagneux, trčs jolie

Nie byłam nigdy wielkim fanem Grecji, ale pod wpływem Twojej wspaniałej galerii chyba jednak zmienię zdanie:) Masz świetne wyczucie do fotografii krajobrazu. Tu szczególnie podoba mi się swiatlo oraz ciepła tonacja, która dodaje miejscu szczególnego uroku. Super!
danos (78122) 2013-10-26 9:24
nice the panoramic view of this section of Parga,with the characteristic islet on the right to be the eye catching of the image.A good view of the town.
mesutilgim (73024) 2013-10-26 10:34
Amazing landscape capture from Parga (which is also a very well known corner of Greece, in our history) !
Perfect pov and perfect layout.
TFS and best regards

Witaj Kamilko, Zastanawiałam sie, dlaczego nagle zniknęłaś i cieszę się, ze jesteś tu znowu :) fantastyczne miejsce, a kolor wody bajeczny. jeszcze lepiej by to wygladalo w duzym rozmiarze, który jest teraz dozwolony ( najlepiej wygląda 1200-1300 px).
daddo (20639) 2013-10-27 3:51
Hi Kamila. A charming place, sheltered and beautifully situated. Nice POV with the curving esplanade, the intriguing island and clear water. I feel somehow that Preveza doesn't sound Greek to me.I wonder what its etymology is. Regards. Klaudio.
abmdsudi (32505) 2013-10-27 4:10
The popped up turquoise water makes the already attractive coastal scape looks even more graceful, a fine compo taken from good point of view, It is the best way to enjoy the wonderful coastal scenery, a great display of light rich colours and lots more highlight to enjoy in such depth. Contrast to blue sea is so mouth watering indeed. Well done, TFS
mjw364 (6142) 2013-10-28 11:06
A very well composed shot with lovely vivid colours. I like reading your note too - informative since I do want to go to Greece soon and holiday brochures are don't give you the whole picture.
adramad (30925) 2013-10-29 8:56
Wonderful image that shows us this great composition, superb location of this population, with a coastline so beautiful, green mountains that surround it are equally splendid, this small island is an ideal.
Wonderful colors, especially in the color of the sea.
Well managed both luminosity and sharpness.
Have a nice day.
All the best.
claudeD (26964) 2013-10-30 8:44

With regards from Luxembourg
brianmcc (5788) 2013-10-31 16:00
this is a great picture. your high vantage point allows you to fully capture the coastline and the curving bay, and behind this the stunning mountains. the light is superb and has resulted in some fantastic colours.
Angshu (52890) 2013-11-01 0:42
As I see more pictures from your gallery, I appreciate more and more the beauty your country has to offer!
Here from the high POV you created a fine picture with the turquoise waters contrasting with the sand & the wide arc of the bay shoreline creatinga fine lead-in, leading us right into the centre of the frame. Beautiful work!
maloutim (9473) 2013-11-04 20:11
This is a lovely capture with great composition : The lovely arch of the bay adorned by the bushy peninsula and headland, the bright-colored roofs of the houses in the village, the woody hills in the middle and backgrounds, and the lovely cloudy sky.
The turquoise sea and red roofs contrast very well with the more neutral colors of the background.
