The lovely town Parga with its 2500 inhabitants is situated on the north west coast of Greece, in an idyllic bay on the foot of the Epirus Mountains. It is one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. In spring a lot of wild flowers bloom and the landscape stays all summer long nice and green. Behind the coast with lots of bays and long sandy beaches are olive groves and pine woods. High above Parga are the ruins of a venetian castle situated, from up there you have a gorgeous view over the coast with its numerous islands and bays for bathing, swimming and relaxing.
The most known island is the "Panagia-Island" the "Virgin Mary-Island" which is just outside the harbour, to its honour every year on the 15th of August Parga celebrates a big town festival with music and huge fire works.
The photo has been taken early morning from the road above.

Here are more of these fantastic colours and warm light. The very typical Greek countryside chapel is nicely balanced in the composition by the white boat. A few red trees or bushes catch the attention among the dark green pine trees. The photo radiates peace and harmony and is extremely beautiful.

You have indeed captured some beautiful light here. But you've also overdone the saturation and colour-tweaking in post-processing. I'm willing to bet the natural colours were plenty gorgeous enough!

Lovely, cool and calm effect that you have portrayed here indeed a a picturesque sea side. Nicely composed shot in such a peaceful setting filled by sublime colours light. The striking chapel holds the attention as strong focal aided by vivid red colour and there more detail to savour the eyes. I love the sheen on the water surface as an extra bonus to the shot, It's a fine shot, simply gorgeous, and tx for sharing.

Jaki śliczny widoczek na wysepkę. To czerwone drzewko od razu zwraca uwage. cudowny kolor wody, aż chciałoby się w niej zanurzyć.
Pozdrawiam i miłego weekendu zyczę Małgorzata

Supere view with beautiful light and colors in particular for the sea, an interesting simple composition with boat, very pleasant to see.

an iconic shot of a little Greek haven that has all the charm and wonder that just seem to be around every headland in the islands. I love the warmth and strong colours, not to everyone's taste I know, but personally I love it! Magical!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

il tuo ritorno dopo una lunga assenza è caratterizzato da belle fotografie delle quali questa è solo l'ultima ma la luce è sempre la setssa molto calda e ricca di colore che impresisona per la sua incisività.
Splendido anche il soggettop che rappresenta un altro angolo della Grecia che ti circonda.
Ciao e buon fine settimana.

welcome back! You've created a well balanced and harmonious composition making the sailboat an integral and important part of the composition. I like very much how vibrant the trees look in this peaceful scenery. The sense of depth is superb and enhances the appeal of the calm, clear sea. I love how you managed the delicious morning light and that it's intensity varies. A very lovely place. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have great weekend,

A very pleasant and attractive view with fine colours. Like a picture from a paradise.

I have been to Greece and the Mediterranean and these colors look natural to me. Usually it is the color yellow that shows evidence of over-saturation first. The faint yellow glow on the bg rocky cliffs looks fine to me. Good sharpness and my only suggestion is to blur the slightly noisy sky taking care not to smudge the yacht mast & rigging. Tfs!

the early morning light across the scene are a delight in a nicely composed sea scape.

The tree in red on the rocky slop made a good focal eye-catching element, Kamila.
Turquoise color of the water decorating a fine scene on the small bay on the island.
Well managed the light and achieved superb clarity, and a bonus of a small reflection.
