Hello my dear friends! I had a busy summer and somewhat neglected my visits to TE, thogh you were always on my mind.
I ended my busy summer on the beaches of Greece - just for eight very pleasant days... This is the Sikia Beach with a tiny island in front. Of course, immediately after taking the photo, I visited the island, taking care of the sea urchins that could be stepped upon in the uderwater rocks.

Welcome back with this summer picture and although I'm not a beach fan(especially when there are lots of people)I can understand the interest for this one with the island facing it!

Welcome back! ;-)
To end a busy summer in this way must be great! Looking out of my window I get a bit envious because what I see isn't very friendly. Your photo shows a very pleasant scenery and it was taken from a good angle including this ridge in the background. It's interesting but the tiny flag on top of the island is a real eyecatcher ...
Greetings from a bit grey and cool Germany - and have a good week!

So you've been spending the summer in Greece, nice to see you back!
Nice place you found here, with everything it takes to have a great beach vacation...
I admire the light, that is rendering super colours in the crisp air!

Welcome back. Hope you can continue your beautiful posts as same before.
Your shoot is very clear in natural colors while adding visitors and small rocky island to your perfectly captured photo. Seems you were walking alone, without control ;) Congratulations. Have a nice new week.

Kalimera Anton, Tikanis? ;D
Welcome back, with a sunny picture! Reminding the holidays just gone! It has great clarity and sharpness, sweet colors and a nice landscape with this small island there!
Stepping on sea urchins is worse for you than for them, usually!

Merhaba Komşu, nice to see you after a long period of time. As far as I see from this beautiful photo, you should have enjoyed your vacation. Despite the strong sun light, you did a good work which makes me to feel the iodine scent of the sea. Best regards, Tolga

Beautiful beach scene. The flags on top of the islet are an interesting detail. Do you know which was the second flag?
