A view across the bay of Blefoutis, at the north of Leros. The name Blefoutis comes from the word "polyphytos" which means luscious, with abundant vegetation. The bay is a safe harbour. Its surroundings are lovely and quiet, the coast and the hills are full of interesting herbs.
Thank you for visiting

Water surface justify the term you had used as "safe-harbour", Ourania (yet, must say it is a finencial-term used when a company issue a statement and premeditated of its outcome under certain laws).
Anyway, I enjoy looking at this charming island corner you show, a diff. angle across, and with fine DOF and light managed.
Kalispera, and enjoy your weekend,

Hello Ourania, a very nice image of this bay. Your photo really gets me the "quiet" feeling. Not too many human activities around, a thing that is good sometimes. Nice colors, good sharpness.

Lovely view of the harbour. Seeing your pictures is like visiting so many beautiful places. This quiet composition is also full of interesting details and the lovely white boat is a beautiful and important part of the composition. The inclusion of the vegetation in the foreground has given both depth and contrast.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Despite the picture being predominantly land, you have really made the sea the focus here, as the land wraps its arms around the sea and makes it the stat of the show! I like the idea of the arms wrapping around too, it works with your comment of this being a safe harbor. There are lot ands lots of beautiful tones and colors here.
Thanks as always, have a great weekend

Ουρανία, θα καθόμουνα σε αυτο το βραχάκι και θα αγνάντευα με τις ωρες το τοπίο αυτο που μονο γαλήνη εμπνέει..μακριά απο τίς πολυχτισμένες πλαγιές, μακριά απο τα τουριστικά θέρετρα, αυτη ειναι η ομορφιά της πατρίδας μας πού πρέπει και επιβάλλεται να μείνει ανέγγιχτη και ανεπηρέαστη απο κάθε τι πρόσθετο και επιβαρυντικό.
ειμαι σίγιυρη οτι θα μοσχομυρίζει το θυμάρι εκει!!
καλημέρα να εχεις

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
ιστιοπλοϊκά σκάφη πάνω σε ήρεμα νερά είναι πάντα ένα μεγάλο κίνητρο για φωτογράφιση,
πολύ ωραία η σκηνή που φωτογράφισες εδώ με φυσικά χρώματα και καλή ευκρίνεια,

A very nice tranquil capture, with the green of the bushes and the sandy rock leading the eye to calm waters.

Ciao Ourania, gran bella anche questa, atmosfera rilassante con piacevole vista delle dolci colline, splendida luce e magnifici colori naturali, brava, ciao Silvio

I enjoy the tones of light and various colours in the water and the pleasantly mild colours generally. Just as the yacht is anchored in the bay, where it is the obvious focus of attention, the composition is anchored in the thick green area in the foreground. The roughly parallel, horizontal layers of bushes, rocks, water, hills, a distant mounatin and sky give the composition a good rhythm. This is a most enjoyable photo from a quiet day in early summer.

Lovely calmness and great place to have to yourself it happens so rarely these days! I take it this is one shot which is a great scene of the secluded bay away from hustle & bustle and begging to be photographed which has a wonderful authenticity about it. The composition and exposure are first rate packed by some wonderful details to take in - the white yacht is of particular attractive- seen from this good vantage point and the textured rocks and wonderful green foliage sort of clinching the foreground so firmly into the composition. Lovely natural colours and exposure, the water effect is brill, it shines in the grey shades so stunningly. Just being there is enough sometimes......
Great capture, Tfs

Un paysage ou la nature est roi, agréable a regarder, un calme profond qui s'y installe gentiment, j'aime aussi son côté sauvage que donne les rochers et les collines
nikkitta (16758) 2014-04-30 12:15
Hola Ourania querida
Quite agree with the title, the place seems quiet and calm as are the quiet waters
Good composition with rocks and vegetation at the front and tiny village at the back
Equilibre is given by the beautiful white yatch at the right
Well taken and seen
