Saint Dionysios of Zakynthos was a 16th-century Orthodox Christian Archbishop of Aegina. He was born on the Greek island of Zakynthos in 1546. He is the patron saint of Zakynthos (sometimes called Zante in English) and is celebrated on August 24 and December 17.
In his early life, Dionysios joined a monastery a few miles off the coast of Zakynthos. After a while living there, he was encouraged by his fellow monks to be ordained as a priest, which he did. He eventually decided to travel to the Holy Land by way of Athens. After arriving in Athens, he was made Archbishop of Aigina despite personal protests in humility. In about the year 1589, the Patriarch of Constantinople made Archbishop Dionysios the Archbishop of Zakynthos, he stayed in this position until a permanent Archbishop arrived. After this, he returned to his island monastery where he lived out the rest of his life until his death on November 17, 1624

The waterfront promenade filled with tourists on the Cafe's and tavernas, you managed so beautifully to include.
Night pic. well rendered, lights reflected on the bay calm water with some boats afloat.
Bulbs glare of the lamp-post and tower immaculately handled, result culminate to a wonderful scene.
Enjoy your weekend,

A great night shot. I love the golden reflections in the the dark blue water; a wonderful contrast. The quayside leads the eye nicely towards the tower.

πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα προοπτική και τη διαχειρίστηκες πολύ καλά. Η καμπύλη κάνει μια μεγάλη διαδρομή μέσα στο κάδρο, όλο δυναμισμό και χάρη. Μου αρέσει ο τρόπος που συμπληρώνεται από λεπτομέρειες και χρώματα. Το βραδυνό σκηνικό είναι πολύ ευχάριστο, βλέπουμε ένα ελκυστικό μέρος με ζωντάνια και ωραία ατμόσφαιρα. Τα θερμά χρώματα δημιουργούν ενδιαφέρουσες χρωματικές αντιθέσεις. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,

A nice evening shot of the water front of Zante Town. Lovely colours and reflection. Also known as the walking Saint. His Mummified body is in the Church on Zante Town water front. He is given new slippers on August 24th to replace the old ones that are worn out because of his constant walking performing miracles around the island.

What a glittering night! Lovely burst of colours so well refined with its curvy line leads constantly into the whole depth of the scene. The golden water reflection is just screaming for attention - the icing on the roll and lovely way to finish off the composition. A pleasure to view, Well done, TFS
