Anemos (with the accent on A) means "wind" in Greek. At the last part of the coast of Alinda many little fishing boats are moored that belong to passionate amateur fishermen. They take good care of their boats and go out fishing very often, some of them almost every afternoon. The winding coast and road continue to the left to other coves, beaches, a chapel and a couple of restaurants. It's a wonderful walk too.
Thank you for visiting

No wind was notable on the water surface when taken last year. Yet, a wonderful blue/red and white boats anchored.
A marvelous composition, DOF to the far side of the bay and the view upon the hills is immaculate clear on image.
Lovely location, endless charm.

An image that is most pleasant to view. Expertly composed with the two boats placed obliquely in the frame making a great lead-line. Appealing soft light and lovely harmonious colours. Clarity is top class.

no wind and also less activity on the sea as we can see on your image.But here it gives the scene so unique,tranquil mood of the scene.I really like it!
It´s nicely composed with strong,distinct FG(the boats bring magnificent color contrast to the scene).
Have a nice day

Hello Ourania ,
It's a great pleasure to look at to these nice picture.
Quiet water and very calm environment care for a excellent composition.
Boats in foreground are a nice addition and also a real eye catcher on these picture.
Also a nice panorama view about these area.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

a great frame here. Like the colours in this frame. Really enjoyable warm tone. Great depth achieved by f/8. A very good composition with the fishing boats. Tfs.

This is a very elegant composition with beautifully mild colours. The boats fill the foreground perfectly on a digonal with a slight curve. It's like the owner of th nearest blue knew how good it would look in photos when he painted it dark blue and dark red. The fine background is now well known to most TE regulars, like a nice place to come back to after a busy day.

love this, it is so full of peace and catches the tranquillity of this place so beautifully. I love your composition and the natural balance of elements and colours in this graceful image. Well done!

J'aime beaucoup cette barque qui pointe en direction de la lentille ainsi que le bateau qui semble vouloir la pousser vers toi.. L'image est très nette sur toutes les plages de la profondeur.Les couleurs sont jolies.

un eccellente soggetto in una composizione affascinante nella quale si amalgamano molto bene soggeto e colori in un insieme particolarmente piacevole.
Ciao e buona giornata

Its funny you mention in your note how these fishermen look after the boats so well, that was just what I thought as I looked at this beautiful scene. The colors and condition of the boats are perfect, so much so that they have the vibrancy of toy boats! Beautiful presentation with the land as a backdrop and that oh so beautiful blue water. You've probably noticed I love the color of the water in Greece :)
Have a great day

un très beau premier plan de ces deux bateaux de pêcheurs de couleur vive et bleue comme la mer, une belle lumière et un cadrage excellent

Fantastic picture of the little boats moored in the sea. The colours are so vivid and with good tones on the surface of the water. Nice background which makes the little boats stand out even more. Nice
saxo042 (33992) 2013-08-27 8:54
The colourful boats are placed along a strong diagonal and the mooring ropes add lines in a counter-direction. The short mast is harmonically positioned. Interesting background landscape.

Hello Ourania - The flower anemone can be found in the same rich red and blue colours as the FG boat and they make a stunning spring display. These little wooden craft, although something completely different, also make a fine grouping and FP in your shot. I particularly like the contrast between the colourful boats and sea and the arid looking landscape. The attractive soft light is lovely across the hull of the second boat which casts a pretty reflection. Lovely! Warm regards rosemary

Hello dear Ourania
Another nice capture from Leros with again good pov and perfect compo.
Now I know what Anemos means !
TFS and best regards
abmdsudi (32759) 2013-08-27 9:28
Excellent POV and closeness with these lovely colourful boats, a treat to the eyes really and proud to sustain the fishermen's livelihood. Positioning is so good, occupying the frame nicely with sufficient depth and great dof to the composition. It's a lively shot indeed, exposure is excellent with good background in subtle color. The deep water reflection is a real plus point uplifting this picturesque shot. Simply Delicious straight to the point, top notch!!

Ciao Ourania, gran bella l'infilata delle due barche in primo piano, splendida nitidezza e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio
mcmtanyel (5556) 2013-08-27 18:08
Well saturated, rich colors suit this photo very well. Beautiful place. Anemos might be the origin of the words animal and animate (from wind - breath).
fabbs99 (11420) 2013-08-27 22:35
Magnificent vivid colors,contrast and superb overall quality of the image.Superb pov and exposure.Amazing sharpness and perfect light.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
carlo62 (19759) 2013-08-28 0:37
ottima composizione, le due barche sono ben posizionate in questo taglio verticale.
Bella luce e, di conseguenza, bei colori, con lievi, ma significanti riflessi, soprattutto quello della barca bianca che aggiunge luce in in punto molto importante per la visione generale.

jemaflor (74370) 2013-08-28 10:22
Nice blue tones for the baot and the sea, well framed, interesting depth with the boat in the FG, tfs.
nikkitta (9205) 2013-08-29 16:20
So no wind, quiet waters and a good composition with the colorful boats at the FG
What I like the more is the BG plenty of all kind of boats now resting
All the capture gives idea of calm and relax, indeed must be great to walk along this shore
Beautiful shot, congrats
fotka (2657) 2013-09-03 4:34
Greece is a country of many islands so your gallery is full of nice photos with boats.
I like this one, colorful fishing boats anchored by the coast. Beautiful vivid colors of the boats nicely composed with perfect sharpness.
Have a nice day,
ChrisJ (91404) 2013-09-08 2:41
This one jumped out at me from your recent gallery. A striking warm versus cold colour contrast between the red and blue, with good sharpness and saturation. The fishing boats ares well positioned in the frame. The bg peak and village add context. Tfs!
