The region of Skinari is situated on the North of Zakynthos and consists of many villages including St Nicholas, Volimes, Makri Gialos, Xigia, Mikronisi and is also home to Blue Caves and Navagio (shipwreck).
The traditional mountain village of Volimes is 32km from Zakynthos Town and consists of three smaller settlements a few minutes away from each other and feels like you're stepping back in time, as the buildings are some of the best preserved on the island and the way of life is built on tradition.
Volimes is the most important village in the north part of the island and is famous for its market, which sells local produce such as handmade rugs and lace, cheese, honey and wine.
Volimes is also close to the small port of St Nicholas where ferryboats depart daily to the neighbouring island of Kefalonia.

Tu vis dans un bien beau pays.Ici le point de vue permet d'admirer le cristal de l'eau limpide tout en poussant le regard vers les beaux bateaux et la pointe de terre qui plonge dans la mer.

τι όμορφα, λαμπερά χρώματα, ελκύουν το βλέμμα σαν μαγνήτης και μας δίνουν μια πολύ ζωηρή εντύπωση αυτής της ωραίας ακτής και της ατμόσφαιράς της. Η σύνθεση είναι απλή και άριστα ισρροπημένη, μας δίνει θαυμάσια αίσθηση του χώρου, Εξαιρετικές οι υφές και οι λεπτομέρειες, η διαύγεια και η χρωματική διαβάθμιση του νερού έχουν αποδοθεί με τον καλύτερο τρόπο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό απόγευμα,

The deep azure blue water of the sea in this iconic greek scene is stunningly beautiful and evokes fond memories of sunny days spent in Greece.
I just read in the papers the other day, that tourism in Greece is flying again - good for you, keep up the good vibe.
have a great weekend

Interesantan tekst o selu, lep pogled na ribarske camce i brdo.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana luka sa ribarskim camcima, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto za odmor.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
An interesting article about the village, a beautiful view of the fishing boats and the hill.
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated harbor with fishing boats, beautiful colors.
Nice place for a holiday.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

The composition is well divided, the sky, the hill and the sea. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the sea, of the boats and of the hill. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Wonderful summer picture with turquaz sea. You took this one right angle.
ikeharel (58895) 2014-08-11 2:19
The transparent blue and turquoise waterare an amazing beauty in the composition, taken well against the barren hill slope on the other side of the bay.
Boats and seashore activity added vibrant scale to the calm location.
Charming shot, well collected.

Very nic capture of this beautiful and calm scenery. Captured with perfect pov and light management.
TFS and best regards

Ah tout ce qui me plait, la transparence de l'eau, sa couleur, la présence des bateaux et le côté sauvage des rochers, très jolie
willperrett (7424) 2014-08-13 10:03
Lovely colours in this photograph, but not over-saturated as far as I can tell. The traditional fishing boat certainly enhances the scene; I can't say the same for the "Blue Caves" excursion boat! Might it have been possible to move a few metres to the left in order to remove it from the frame? Otherwise this is very good work.
