Strolling in the narrow alleys of Monemvasia castle,i sew this small balcony with the tables and chairs waiting the visitors to drink a coffee or a cold glass of water, as enjoying the endless view of the sea under the shadows of the trees.
The cats are the mascot of the nearby coffee shop.
Have a good week.

Hi Danos, Mine's a Cold Beer please, super scene here you have captured with style, TFS, Cheers Iain.

πραγματικά αυτό το μπαλκόνι πρέπει να είναι μια ανάσα σκίασης και ξεκούρασης για τους επισκέπτες του κάστρου.Το να πιεί κανείς ένα καφέ ή μια μπύρα θα είναι φατάζομαι μια μεγάλη εμπειρία όπως και ηρεμία της ψυχής.

the view is beautiful and very relaxing place, perfect for dreaming, reading, and much more, maybe a nice dinner based on fish. The photo is executed perfectly, the light is excellent.

pleasant place and view. Amazing calm mood here. Fine glance on the sea. Nice scenery with the cats in BG. Good presentation.
Have a nice day.

Un bel endroit où les chaises nous invitent à contempler le paysage, pour l'instant seul le chat en profite.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Beautiful composition cafes by the sea.
Beautiful light and shadow.
The beautiful colors of this fantastic place for rest and relaxation.
I see you have the right to authorize your photos, how to do this century.
pajaran (63542) 2011-07-11 1:03
Lepo, mirno mesto sa stolovima, stolicama i pogledom na more, lepe boje i fotografija.
Dobar trenutak snimka sa mackama i talasima, dobra kompozicija.
Prijatan i uspesan dan sa lepim vremenom, kod nas paklene vrucine.
Sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Nice, quiet place with tables, chairs and sea view, beautiful colors and images.
A good time recording with cats and waves, good composition.
Pleasant and successful day with beautiful weather, in our hellish heat.
All the best in the new week that started.

mauro61 (52857) 2011-07-11 1:45
tranquillo angolo tra sedie e tavolini con una splndida vista del mare.
Solo i gatti al momento godono di questo sereno paesaggio...
ikeharel (74843) 2011-07-11 3:25
Typical and enchanting waterfront place for a Cafe' while strolling along, Danos.
The cat is the only living sole in the nice taken photo, but I'd be sure the place drows many tourists on evening with the Buzuki plays on the backgronds.
pierrefonds (68967) 2011-07-11 4:41
The distance between the restaurant and the montains are giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the chairs and of the tables. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
plimrn (21344) 2011-07-11 4:48
This looks a lot like the view from out hotel on Poros. Of course Greece is blessed with stunning landscapes. The Greek photographer would never run out of beautiful landscapes and you have master the capture of them well with excellent framing, the bit of light adding drama and the wonderful clarity of colors.
baddori (20157) 2011-07-11 5:31
Le foto tradiscono il carattere delle persone .
Io amo le sedie , vecchie con il fondo in fibra intrecciata.
Una è vicino al mio letto .
Una meraviglia stare rilassati in questa riva .
Sentimento ed immagini ...in una pace di colori verso la profondità dell'orizzonte
Cricri (122669) 2011-07-11 8:10
Un endroit plaisant avec les chaises tourner vers la mer qui invite a s'asseoir et a contempler le paysage en jolie compagnie des chats, belle réalisation
papagolf21 (105422) 2011-07-11 11:25
Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Tu as le talent pour nous faire découvrir des lieux où l'on peut s'installer tranquillement sous les arbres. De plus, l'ensemble surplombe la mer et possède une vue sur les montagnes au loin.
Un pur plaisir à contempler.
saxo042 (37910) 2011-07-11 11:31
A fantastic place to sit and contemplate. This is a real "Mamma Mia" view here with all the beautiful colours.
patdeph (35748) 2011-07-11 13:35
maybe the light is not the best,but this is anyway a superb place where I would like ti sit and have a drink.The cat is a lovely detail.
jlbrthnn (76039) 2011-07-11 14:39
This balcony with a view of the sea is observed well and pleasant to look. These empty chairs and the presence of a cat create a mysterious atmosphere. The quality is excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
Budapestman (82620) 2011-07-11 14:43
a beautiful peaceful atmosphere with very nice details and composition, the view is picturesque, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!

What an attractive place to enjoy the magnificent view, but what about a beer?
Great light management to show the super blue sea
Cute cat, interesting note

Boa noite Danos
Lovely and romantic place. I imagine how it's a pleasure to sit there under the trees and seeing this marvelous view. TFs
gunbud (34066) 2011-07-11 17:33
What a great spot to enjoy sipping from a cup of coffee.
The trees make an effective natural frame and along with the cats we enjoy the stunning view of sea and distant mountains.
mvdisco (17794) 2011-07-11 18:38
An Excellent point of view of this small balcony with the tables and chairs waiting the visitors for a drink of coffee or a cold grass of water,
great seascape POV. and DOF. well presented ..and composed with beautiful colors and light,
Lovely place too.
raszid62 (18515) 2011-07-11 23:26
Μεγάλη, σκιερό μέρος για να καθίσετε και να θαυμάσετε τη θέα. Μάλλον πολύ άνετες καρέκλες. Ήμουν κάποτε στη Μονεμβασιά και μου άρεσε πραγματικά εκεί. Άριστη ποιότητα και τη σύνθεση χρωμάτων.
Atousa (7131) 2011-07-12 0:00
A nice shot of this beautiful place.. I like your chosen pov n the inclusion of the chairs seem waiting for the people to sit n enjoy the view.. well done.. tfs

An another very nice place in your gallery, a place full of serenity, of peacefull. Good shot too with the FG and the large prospect open to the seascape give depht. The two kats give life to the scene.
Fis2 (102486) 2011-07-12 0:46
Interesting composition and frame.
I like light and colors.
Photo has climate.
carlosmarin (11954) 2011-07-12 1:49
First I confess that I like the terraces of the bars to spend the time and to contemplate the landscape or the people.
Then, I emphasize that this terrace opposite to the sea is a marvel.
You have used a fantastic POV and very good setting.
alin-m (3716) 2011-07-12 2:11
I would like to be now there.I a kind of my favourite places,tables with wonderful sea view.Very nice picture.
jhm (156632) 2011-07-12 3:41
Indeed a nice place for drinking a cup of coffee, or a good glass wine, this with sight on sea.
Nice panorama view with the sea and mountains in background.
Composition and presentation are very well. TFS.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2011-07-12 4:03
it is surely a beautiful balcony and the view from it is really nice. Tranquil place. The colour of sea is looking superb with the hilly area at BG. Like the composition with the part of balcony with those chairs in it. Excellent shot. Tfs.

abmdsudi (56388) 2011-07-12 9:02
A nice spot to relax for few drinks facing the open sea and gentle breeze under shades. What a nice place to laze the sunday afternoon. Wonder what the kitty is doing there, but she is part of this image giving some interest and focal as well, whilst the tables are still empy. I love the spot of warm light hitting the rocks on the rhs, the textured floor and the composition. Simple but a well thought out that works well. Good observation and well taken. Congrats
adramad (47738) 2011-07-12 9:32
That most wonderful corner to take a break from these strategic table in the shade of these trees and the idyllic view of the sea, the line of mountains in the background gives a good DOF with such a beautiful composition.
Beautiful light, the light backlit, trees and a nice blue color with these.
Have a great evening.
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2011-07-12 10:41
Perfect place for sipping coffee or tea as I don't drink. Nice view and peaceful atmosphere. Well balanced composition with good colors.
Robert1969 (7160) 2011-07-12 10:42
It seems that cats are calling the guests a heartfelt welcome.
It is equally difficult to describe this picture in short, but the picture is cozy and snug but also inviting.
The picture has also a great depth (very good point of view) and a nice calmness (very good composition).
The very good light makes the picture complete.
In short: a beautiful and well kept photo.

Γειά σου Δάνο,
ένα μέρος που σε προσκαλεί να κάτσεις για ένα καφέ και να ηρεμίσεις,
ωραία λήψη,πολύ καλό καδράρισμα επίσης!
maloutim (9639) 2011-07-13 1:22
Good morning Danos, I like your photos of terraces near the sea, which lets one imagine the bliss of sitting there enjoying the beautiful view, the calm, and pure air.
The discrete presence of the cats makes it all the more greek.
Good management of light and shadow with only the buildings on the right letting us know it was a sunny day indeed, with a welcome shady terrace.
Thanks for sharing.
mkamionka (39209) 2011-07-13 1:38
such a simple composition and yet so beautiful.
The trees were well used here to cover uniformly blue sky. The chairs with tables dispersed across the foreground make a nice effect.
Great POV, I really like how you have selected the objects in the foreground and how you have aligned them to frame the wonderful view behind. The view itself is breathtaking but without this foreground the photo would be boring.
The cats add another element -they bring some life to the view.
Very well done,
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-07-13 3:38
Thank you very much for the final review yesterday.
What can I say to an image like this. I should have been born in Greece. The view, a wonderful view, table for a few people, Trees provides a nice shaded area during the day, and there are even a few cats. I have heard a lot about Greece, and looking though your photographs, all I've heard about your country seems to be true. I just would like to be there now and loose myself in space and time. Simply looking far into the direction of the sea. And would like to enjoy a wonderful meal at the table. It's a dream. But a wonderful one . Your photograph is full of such atmosphere. Thank you Danos, Visiting your gallery is as good as actually being there. I sit here now for awhile and enjoy the time pass by me slowly.
Very best regards,
Please enjoy the rest of the week,
Silvio1953 (148639) 2011-07-13 10:34
Ciao Danos, lovely sea view, beautiful composition witha lot of chairs, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
clic (17607) 2011-07-13 11:55
Many thanks for your kind words, dear Danos.
I would rather have a seat in this cozy balcony instead of the cats; the sea and mountain over it looks like a paradise that one can enjoy better relaxing in the shade of those beautiful trees!
The overall shaded weather is an incentive to relaxation.
paololg (31448) 2011-07-13 14:01
Ciao dear Danos,
I appreciate this wonderful photo double, because I am a great lover of cats.
You have captured a fantastic place, with a very relaxing scene. Congratulations also for the way that you have composed this scene. Bravo!
Ciao, have a nice Thursday!
kato (11630) 2011-07-13 14:41
You're capturing well this place by good composition and natural color tone, so it's impressive to see this peaceful scape in balcony. The whole is harmonized well by balcony, sea and sky of division into 1/3. And, a set of chairs, trees and cat in balcony is arranged by good balance.
Giorgio (11279) 2011-07-13 23:19
- Very nice artistic, poetic and creative composition Danos, amazing effect with these chairs in foreground, very good idea, well done!
jafadabret (56501) 2011-07-13 23:38
Une vue aussi belle de sa terrasse c'est certainement très rare. J'aime le mobilier très simple et la présence des chats qui renforcent l'impression de se trouver chez soi.
bukitgolfb301 (43668) 2011-07-14 5:26
Hi my dear Danos, how are you?
Sorry for my late reply as I just come back to Tokyo.
A very very artistic shot! This is the best of week from you. Perfect framewrok and compsition from low angle are perfect as usual. The light control and management are so marvelous. Thanks for your sharing finest work and have a good day!
Takero from very hot TOKYO
peppe59 (14555) 2011-07-14 7:38
This beautiful landscape with a nice fish dish even better, very good quality as always.
Longroute (19396) 2011-07-14 7:46
Here too, like in all Greece, we find these lovely and useful terrace where to dine or drink. And the view is really so fine so that it increases the pleasure of eating. I wish one day I'll be able to sit there and admire the panorama quietly...
Lucky that the cat posed for you! (:-)
well composed and captured.
Kielia (24077) 2011-07-14 7:46
this image is a delight for everybody who loves places by the sea! A great and inviting impression of this lovely place in the gentle light that creates a fantastic atmosphere. The cats play an important role composition wise, my compliments!
UlfE (14641) 2011-07-14 10:47
Very nice photo. I really like your inclusion of a glimpse of the village beneath. The feeling I get when looking at the photo is that I would like to walk up to the edge and have look at the village. You also wonder why the only visitor is a lonely cat. TFS and have a nice evening!
janusz2054 (2) 2011-07-14 11:50
Excellent point of view from the balcony and very relaxing place.
Perfect composed with beautiful colors and light.

this sea terrace is a true wonder. The atmosphere is so typically Greek that seem to feel the scents of this your enchanted land. The light is very beautiful.
Have a nice evening

josepmarin (58359) 2011-07-18 5:27
this balcony, with the chairs and the tables, inviting to sitting down to enjoy a coffee, it offers us a few impressive sights, with a really gorgeous landscape, which you have caught under a great light.
I like the graphics of the chairs in foreground, and the depth of the image.
It is a beautiful work, my friend.
Mari63 (4085) 2011-07-18 14:21
Ciao Danos, i gatti sono l'eccezionalità in questa foto altrimenti troppo evocativa. Bellissima la disposizione delle sedie. Eccellente composizione ottima qualità. Ciao Mari

a inviting place for a drink while contemplating the sea.
Although there was no direct sunshine, I like the atmosphere under the shade. Good you've spotted the cats too!
