As I was riding my bike home from work, a quiet spring afternoon, at the curve of the road I saw these fishing boats setting off for their own work. I stopped, climbed on a bench and took this picture.
Behind the beacon of Ayia Marina we see the remains of a fortress, a bar, a restaurant and the restored flourmill that functioned as a cultural centre for a while and now is closed again.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely week to all

A perfect divided pic. space, with the slop "falling" to sea, clouds on the horizon and calm blue sea, Ourania.
The boat sailing add movement on the scene, well done my friend, lovely photo applied.

A beautiful sight to contemplate on the way home from work. The boats moored in the bay draw the eyes naturally into the scene and give it depth. The ambient light is very pleasant and the colours natural and agreeable. I like the bank of clouds seemingly floating across the distant mountains. All the best for the week ahead.

gran bel panorama, c'è molta calma e una bella luce.
Il mare è di un blu intenso veramente bello, dove spiccano nitide le barche.

Good picture with bright light and giving me new need for holidays ;o)
I imagine the photograph could be cropped to focus the glance of the visitor on the main details.
I will post a WS to make an attempt to realize my idea.
I wish you a very good week.

tu hai la grande fortuna di passare davanti a questi paesaggi grandiosi nel corso del tuo tragitto tra casa e lavoro, cosa ben diversa del mio che si svolge tra brutte ed anonime periferie di una grande città.
Questo ti consente di cogliere bellissimi aspetti dell'Isola nella quale vivi, soprattutto nelle giornate nelle quali il clima ti consente di godere di simili spettacoli nei quali la natura si mostra in tutta la sua bellezza.
Una foto ben composta, con colori eccellenti ed una nitidezza piuttosto buona che coglie un un paesaggio abbellito dalla particolare luminosità che spesso la primavera ci regala insieme alle belle nuvole che si vedono nel cielo.
Complimenti per la fotografia e per la passione per questa forma di arte che ti spinge a vedere il mondo che ti circonda in maniera diversa grazie ad essa.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

What a magnificent coastline scape and scenery Ourania, some boats in that bay, the colors and sharpness are really good, the light is superb, a postcard

Just looking at this photo has brightened up my cold wet autumn evening. W hat a beautiful scene with the rich blue sea and the boats in the foreground leading to the little buildings on the edge of the water at the foot of the hill. Great afternoon lighting and the position of the horizon with the fluffy white clouds above make this a perfect picture.

Hi Ourania, a warm greeting after a few days of absence for a week getaway north of Portugal, sister country on the Iberian Peninsula. Very good picture of this beautiful and interesting view of the beautiful bay, beautifully captured in this interesting image with good depth, sharpness, color and light. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

You had a fantastic road from your work to home that day! Really impressive one with a superb view! Perfectly executed image as always with an interesting composition and very good quality. Well done!

Very pretty, peaceful scenery. Excellent sharpness, light and color. One comment, I experimented by scrolling down until the top of the photo disappears and found out that I like it slightly better if it were cropped right above the 1st layer of clouds above the hill on the right, just a suggestion.
Do you carry a camera everywhere you go? I have an "everyday" camera in my car and it comes in handy quite often.

It hardly matters what the weather would bring them. It is their living .. fishing. Those fishermen heading out to the open sea that will tackle anything fighting all weather conditions and the dangers of the sea through their will to live and let their family live..... Its a very thoughtful of you and you story telling picture hopefully they return home with their catch safely. A nice effective composition with good afternoon warm light, detail, colour and very nice crisp shot and contrast. That's very effective that sums it up perfectly. Wonderful shot and tfs

Hi dear Ourania
Yes, your signitured image has come again, waiting for such ones. The best postcard presenting your country perfectly. So well carculated framework and the best color touch as usual. Deep exposure is so fantatsic too.
Thanks a lot and have a good day! TAKERO

An idyllic landscape scene so very well captured in gorgeous colors and beautifully composed. Your POV is simply incredible; I really like this with the nice looking water-landscape especially the dominant blue has brought so much liveliness to this shot, wonderful detail and contrasting so superbly against the white houses. Indeed a peaceful and tranquil, I think I could live longer here! Superb photo. Wish you a very nice week.

I must admit, your trip to work is rather more scenic that mine :) I see traffic and motorways and smokey city streets. It must be a real joy to have a view like this of this wonderful coastline, and you have had such beautiful weather on the day too. I'll trade you my journey to work for yours any day!
All the best
holmertz (31552) 2013-09-16 5:34
With some scrolling I can see even on my phone that this a fine picture. The light is lovely, the clouds have marvellous shapes and colours and the view of the "big" boat and the very small boat steering towards the sea is very nice.
Greetings from a (temporarily?) dull and rainy Skiathos,

Ουρανία γεια σου,
η τοποθεσία φαίνεται πολύ όμορφη και γαλήνια που με την κίνηση της ψαρόβαρκας γίνεται ακόμα πιό ελκυστική.Τα κτίσματα στη απέναντι πλευρά λούζονται από το ζεστό απογευματινό φως,δημιουργώντας ακόμα μια επί πλεον Φθινοπωρινή σκηνή.

If only I had such views on my way to and from work or any other activity in my area! Very good colours and a magnificent sky - like a British sky almost! Sharp and clear shot too.
Thanks for sharing!

Ciao Ourania, favolosa vista di mare, ottimo l'inserimento delle barche, splendida luce e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio
ChrisJ (91360) 2013-09-24 6:13
Missed this one. Good to have the horizon line placed well away from the centre which really strengthens the composition. The fg yacht at right makes great focal point. Excellent colour, sharpness and saturation. A nice warm cold colour contrast between the reddish yellow rocky headland and the cobalt blue sea and cyan sky. Tfs!
