It's wonderful to stay in a magic country, with a golden summer and views like that. More magical for us, Greeks, is to eat fresh fish with this view!
I took this shot from a family fish tavern at Agios Nikitas, Lefkada island when I was there for my summer holidays! A magnificent view that I'll never forget!

Some infos about Agios Nikitas:
This beautiful village is situated on the North West coast of Lefkas, 12 km from Lefkas Town. It is the only village at sea level along the West Coast, because the coastline is so rugged and steep.
The village consists of one main street down to the sea. There are many restaurants and tavernas, and small minimarkets and souvenir shops, along the main street. There is some parking at the top of the street, but at the bottom of the street near to the sea parking is very difficult - especially in high season. The village is very busy during July and August, but can be very quiet outside of the main season.
The surrounding area is beautiful, with steep hills and valleys covered in olive and pine trees leading down to beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea water. After a storm the white limestone sand is washed up into the sea, turning the water into striking patterned shades of light and dark blue - a photographers dream.

An amazing color of the water, Mpampis, I wish that I could have a short vacation in Greece right now.
THe POV above the roof is interesting and well composed. Ithink that you can work on the red tiles, in order to make it more red, but it's agood shot, anyway.

Μπάμπη πολύ καλή φώτο και με το κρύο που έχει αρχίσει (ειδικά εδώ στο βορρά)αυτές οι εικόνες είναι μία όαση... Εκπληκτική θέα πράγματι και φανταστικό το χρώμα της θάλασσας! Έχεις κάνει κάποια επεξεργασία γι'αυτό; Είναι τέλειο!
Εξαιρετική δουλειά πραγματικά, μπράβο!
