A house built in the style of a traditional cottage of Leros. I'm not sure whether it's a new building or a renovated one. It stands on the slope overlooking amphitheatric Vromolithos and has a lovely view, past the islet of Ayia Kyriaki all the way to the coast of Turkey.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Yes Ourania, spring is just around the corner.
The green tone contrast well with the white and blue, under beautiful daylight.
Fine clear image, ands well managed the light.

A most unusual house here, I would never have thought this was a house, it kind of looks like an upside down recylign basket :)
Very nice colours and effects of light and shade too.
Have a great weekend!

I like the way you have used the trees to frame the building but also how the blue window provides a place from which we can imagine looking out between those trees towards the coast of Turkey as you describe in your note. Those two branches that go over the top of the window andalmost meet suggest an oval shape that coudl almost be like an eye with the window a square pupil.

I love the strong contrasts and strong colours of this photo. The very typical Greek building is beautifully seen through a hole in the curtain of intensely green vegetation. The sky is as blue as a Greek sky is supposed to be - and as I have nearly always seen it at the beginning or end of the season. This is a photo that gives me a slightly nostalgic feeling.
Thanks for sharing,

Nice light, good sharpness, natural colors

This cute white wash country house has added so much to lift this simple shot and contrasts stunningly in the natural surroundings which seems to dominate. Those lush trees provide the natural framing nicely there and so well shaded by deep blue sky. A well managed exposure, clarity and compostion. Well done, TFS.

You took these picture out of a low position, this gives a very nice image with the blue window as attractive point view.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Περιμένω την άνοιξη με πολλή ανυπομονησία. Μια υπέροχη νησιώτικη σύνθεση με το άσπρο του τοίχου να ξεπροβάλει από το πράσινο των φυτών. Το μέρος είναι ειδυλλιακό για διακοπές. Μου αρέσει πολύ η ατμόσφαιρα ήρεμη και δελεαστική.
Καλή βδομάδα και καλό βράδυ,

A very nice and well composed prelude, not better that Chopin
Like all the vegetation (cactus and trees) to frame the very Greek window
Aldo great play of light and shadows
Congrats and have a great week ahead
