Katakolo (griechisch Κατάκολο (n. sg.)) ist ein Dorf und eine Ortsgemeinschaft in der Gemeinde Pyrgos auf der Peloponnes, in der griechischen Region Westgriechenland.
Der Ort liegt auf einer Landzunge, die in der Antike den Namen Ichthys (Ἰχθύς ‚Fisch‘) trug.
Der Ort verfügt über einen kleinen Hafen, der häufig von Kreuzfahrtschiffen angelaufen wird, um den Passagieren einen Besuch der historischen Stätten in Olympia zu ermöglichen.
Das Dorf lebt vom Fremdenverkehr.

Katakolo (Greek: Κατάκολο) is a seaside town in the municipality of Pyrgos in western Elis, Greece. It is situated on a headland overlooking the Ionian Sea and separating the Gulf of Kyparissia from the rest of the Ionian. It is 11 km west of downtown Pyrgos. The small village of Agios Andreas, which in ancient times was the natural harbour for Ancient Olympia,lies northwest of Katakolo. A railway connects Katakolo with Pyrgos and Olympia, but along with the rest of the rail network in the Peloponnese, services have been suspended since 2011 for economic reasons. (Wikipedia)

Hello Wolfgang, Woow, such a big ship is like whole village. Very impressive, nice composition. Have you gone by it?
Have a nice day

personally, I have never been on such a ship - perhaps one day soon :)
what i like about this photo is the power and presence of the ship in the small frame.
for obvious reasons it dominates the composition,
excellent angles too.

Impressive picture of the giant cruise-ship, Wolfgang, taken from an askewed angle upon, and enhanced depth on the scene.
10 stories above the deck, some floors are bellow, what a monumental vessel.
Fine clear shot of the Fantasia, overwhelming sight.

an impressive presentation, you found a great angle and accentuated the dynamism of the huge cruise ship. The perspectives and the sharp angles also offer balance and are very attractive, the harmonious tones all over the frame make them stand out even more. A fine graphic effect under a brilliant sunshine. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
