Pythagorion harbour is a very large curve and in this view you can see the side that the fishermen have their moorings.The yachts and the ferry boats for Turkey and Ikaria,Patmos, Leros etc. are to the right in deeper water.The whole of the waterfront is jam packed with a huge choice of restaurants,cafe's and bars and I did my best to try them all.
Built on the ruins of the ancient city of Samos during the time of Polycrates, it condenses more than twenty - six centuries of Greek history. It is the main tourist resort on the island. The town used to be known as Tigani, because of its shape, but later was named after the mathematician Pythagoras. The harbour, with its tavernas, coffee-shops, tourist shops and tables set out under the trees on one side, and its fishermen, caiques and yachts of all sizes on the other, could be described as the quintessential scene of a Greek island. Licourgo Castle is in the village and slightly further out, is the airport. There are several archeological sites worth visiting in the area.

Hello Marion - A colourful waterfront shot, I love the way the houses seem to be piled on top of each other. Difficult to get down to the harbour by car I imagine; all the locals must have very trim legs! Very attractive warm light bathes the scene and reflects nicely off the sea. Warm regards rosemary
PS. Your bit about trying out all the bars and restaurants made me smile! I hope you didn't have far to walk after sampling the ouzo.

A fascinating note as usual - Samos sounds like it would be a wonderful place for a holiday - lovely scenery, fine seaside places like this and a bit of culture thrown in too. And if it's anything like other Greek islands, the grub and plonk will be pretty good too!
A lovely waterfront scene taken in low oblique light which brings out all the features and textures of the boats and the buildings so well. Gorgeous rich colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness too.

It is nice waterfront shot with colorful houses on the hill and different kind on boats on the water.
The photo has good quality.
