Samos island view
Samos (/ˈseɪmɒs, ˈsæmoʊs/; Greek: Σάμος) is a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, south of Chios, north of Patmos and the Dodecanese, and off the coast of Asia Minor, from which it is separated by the 1.6-kilometre (1.0 mi)-wide Mycale Strait. It is also a separate regional unit of the North Aegean region, and the only municipality of the regional unit.
In ancient times Samos was a particularly rich and powerful city-state. It is home to Pythagoreion and the Heraion of Samos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes the Eupalinian aqueduct, a marvel of ancient engineering. Samos is the birthplace of the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, after whom the Pythagorean theorem is named, the philosopher Epicurus, and the astronomer Aristarchus of Samos, the first known individual to propose that the Earth revolves around the sun. Samian wine was well known in antiquity, and is still produced on the island.

Que c'est beau la Grèce. C'est l'été presque 10 mois par année et le soleil semble toujours au rendez vous pour faire briller le blanc des maisons et le coeur des gens.

πολύ όμορφη προυσίση από το Καρλόβσι με την πανοραμική θέα υποθέτω ότι είναι από το κατάστρωμα του πολοίου.Ο δασωμένος λόφος δεσπόζει της περιοχής με το εκκλησάκι στην κορυφή να είναι το σημείο αναφοράς της φωτογραφίας.

Nice panorama view about these area.
A nice architecture image above the waterline, but the groen slope of the mountain makes these picture very attractive.
A nice sharp and clear picture, nice colours too.
Very well done, TFS

A very attractive place! Bright colors, red roofs in the lush greenery, calm waters - everything's suggesting a nice leisurely atmosphere of the slow holidays.

Very beautiful how the houses are built on that very steep and lush green mountain slope with a church crowning the top.
I also like the red & white alternation at the buildings.
Beautiful presentation with an excellent luminosity.
Best regards, Paul

A pleasant looking coastal town stretching off the view across the frame with the green hill catches the the eyes as well. Exposure is balanced throughout, brilliant clarity, lovely tonal range with the eye catching blue water and sky provide the striking contrast. Some exquisite work and your photo does it justice. Well done. TFS

Nice pic especially cottages on the hill. I like the colours of the buildings. They are quite similar. Is there any reason for similar colours?

The houses by the waterside are very beautiful. The array of colors is a sight to behold.

The view is awesome, Costantino, depth and colors most attractive.
Yet, must write about the shrpness - not a hard task to enhance sharpness with "Photoscape" or similar software, the result could be enormous.
I had prepated a WS and will post only if you will allow me.
A place that is a small heaven for photography.

a lovely view of this village in the famous island. I liked the colors and the sun beating in the slopes, making the white houses to shine. TFS.
