A view from Crithoni towards Ayia Marina and the Castle. The viewpoint is at the northern end of the little bay of Crithoni, which makes a perfect curve. The houses seen in the distance are at its other end. Further away is the harbour of Ayia Marina and the Castle which has been standing there for ten centuries now.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Exquisite sharpness and fabulous light managed on this beautiful coast scenery, not interrupted - yet combined with the beautiful bay in between.
Picture space allocated superbly, and a fine view till the far end where the mountain "falling" to sea.
Fine shot, have a nice weekend,

A pleasant well presented seascape, all the better to view on a cold winter's day. Ideally framed to create good depth for the scene. I like the light and colours. A crisp clear image. A fine weekend to you.

This time, in Sweden, it´s nice to see some blue sky and bright blue waters! All I see here is grey….
I like You different framing/cropping! It makes me curious regarding what might be there, in between.

A calm, tranquil atmosphere very well portrayed through your lens in this photo. I like the shades of the water from turquoise, to cobalt to azure, Lovely!!. The FG shore and BG hill also makes good contrast with the sea. Excellent photo with opulent colors, light and clarity.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Ourania, I love the sea views, especially with clear water. This is a nice view of this beautiful area, very well captured with a great pov, pretty good in this picture. A lovely image of a nice place to take a swim in clear waters. Very good sharpness, depth and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy Sunday. (Merry Christmas).
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

grazie a te, l'Isola di Leros, che conoscevo giusto di nome, ormai non ha quasi più segreti, e verrebbe voglia, se non fosse per la solita pigrizia, di venirci a passare qualche giorno, tanto essa apparee bella e ricca di colori oltre che non eccessivamente snaturata per via del turismo.
Anche in questa foto ne offri una bella visione, ponendo in particolare risalto, in una composizione e colori molto efficaci, la limpidezza del mare e il colore straordinario delle rocce che insieme contribuiscono alla sua bellezza.
Ciao, buona giornata e buon fine settimana

J'aime beaucoup le titre de cette composition. J'aime le point de vue très bas qui nous force à lever les yeux vers le village tout en blanc au loin. Le résultat est une image profonde et nette sous une luminosité spectaculaire.

A very pleasant view of blue water and brown rocks. A fine depth with the island in the background and parts of rock much closer. A fine reminder of summer to come, now on the darkest day of the year. Here in Gothenburg, it is already dark outside, and it is only 4 p.m.! But from now on, the light will return.

Ciao Ourania, gran vista di un fantastico mare, ottima nitidezza, splendida luce e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio
holmertz (33511) 2013-12-21 10:44
The colours, light and sharpness of this photo are truly outstanding. The composition is very well held together by the connection between the rough brown rocks in the foreground and the famous hill further back.
Cricri (95391) 2013-12-21 11:23
J'aime la composition de ce paysage, le format choisi, les détails des roches en avant plan, la transparence de l'eau et sa couleur divine, la vue sur le village et le château en haut de la colonie tout un ensemble bien présenter et plaisant
Gigidusud (11649) 2013-12-21 13:59
Bellissima costa con un bel contrasto tra la roccia dorata e il mare blu. Splendida la luce e grande nitidezza. Complimenti!

Hello dear Ourania,
Another topclass scenery and capture from Leros !
Good choice of portrait format which fits well to your compo.
TFS and have a Merry Christmas and good weekend.
Noel_Byrne (16219) 2013-12-22 6:49
That water. Its so beautiful.....and especially so against the tones of the rocks which are really textured and have great earthy colors. I love the expansive view across the bay to the town and the castle, and how the castle occupies such a stately and monumental position! Beautiful scene, thanks as always.

πολύ όμορφη παρουσίαση του χωριού που φτάνει μέχρι την άκρη του βράχου και και δεσπόζει της περιοχής.
Η ένθεση της βραχώδους ακτής στο μπροστινό μέρος της φωτογραφιας,κάνει το όλο σκηνικό ακόμα πιό ενδιαφέρον.
pajaran (44354) 2013-12-22 21:52

Καλή σου μέρα και καλή
Μέσα στις παγωμένες μέρες του χειμώνα
μια τέτοια φωτογραφία είναι αληθινή
όαση που προμηνύει καλοκαίρι
το μπλέ γαλάζιο ηρεμεί και γαληνεύει
τη ψυχή μας όταν είναι ήρεμο
καλή σου μέρα και παλι

A wonderful photo from southern Aegean from the best, IMHO, time of the year. We had a heat spell this weekend, the temperatures soared to 60s (upwards of 15°C). As a result, all the pretty snow melted before the temperatures went down to seasonal normals. Thanks for this heartwarming photo!
ChrisJ (92116) 2013-12-24 10:31
Lovely clear clean water that looks great for swimming on a hot summer's day. Good sharpness and superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the cyan sea and reddish yellow tinted rocks. The bg village makes a nice focal point. Have a safe and happy Christmas New Year break!

I miss this one previously. A nice example of composition with simple elements of nature. Great clarity and nice depth. I like a lot the contrasting colours of it. Excellent composition. Tfs.
abmdsudi (35340) 2013-12-27 8:55
A wonderfully layered composition, lovely land and seascape with two good tonal range of colours in this capture. I love the eye catching blue water softening the hard looks in the between fg and backdrop. Very well composed and captured. Tfs
