Sidari (24 miles from Kerkyra) has beautiful sandy beach and very warm shallow water. Its finest feature is the striking rock formations that rise out of the sea at its western end.
The striated sandstone here is continually carved by the wind and the sea into sandy coves with caves and ledges (some of which are very good for diving).
The most famous formations is the Canal d'Amour. Legend has it that any woman who wades or swims through this narrow channel when the water was in shade will win the man of her dreams.
From Sidari boat trips run to the three small islands lying northwest of Kerkyra, Mathraki, Erikòussa and Othonì, famous for their fishing grounds.
In the ws a view of the famous Canal d'Amour.

I find this a very good capture of a lovely landscape. What attracts me most are the colours. Very nice green and blue tones with some yellow of the flowers. The composition is also very good. Thanks for sharing!

Un tipico esempio di come si deve essere una foto del paesaggio con bellissimi toni giallastri dei fiori che si uniscono con il blu del mare. Eccellente composizione con i dettagli molto nitidi. Complimenti bravo ihsan

Very pretty landscape. Looks like an untouched paradise. I love the azure color of the sea (wish to see more ;)) Beautiful blue sky goes well with the pleasing green and yellow ground.

Your images of Kerkyra have served as a compelling travelogue. In this sun-parched and sand covered land, the green shrubbery adds a nice highlight. Of course, the turquoise color of the sea makes a heavenly backdrop. The ws you provided is also very good, and with a little bit of post-processing could have made an excellent post. I did a minor bit of color post-processing — a ws on your ws. I hope you don't regard it as meddling. have a good weekend,

nice shot nice corner of this 'yellow' region of Corfu.The small beach with turquoise waters make the scene so interesting.I think that the place is a little discontiguous or not? Informative your note too.
Have a nice weekend,Danos

Good composition with these twin hills with equal forms. Very fine colours, a very good scan.
Greetings from Gothenburg

Mi piace questa vista primaverile di Sidari con le ginestre in fiori. I colori si completano molto bene. La POV è eccellente con la successione di queste due colline quasi geminate.

rieccomi, spettacolare angolo fiorito in primavera, l'effetto dei colori e del verde sulla sabbia giallatra è fenomenale. Mi piace molto.

Good evening Stella.
The light and the colors is this that makes your photo, pleasure for the eyes.
When I saw your photo I thought that you made it in summer time because of the warm yellow color, and not in March. But thus is to our countries. Warm nice light and colors even in the middle of winter.

The small verdant hills look very picturesque here. You made a very effective and pleasant compo with them . The sea is quite inviting. Remarkable quality for a scan.
