A view from the second last beach of Alinda Bay (the last accessible by road) towards the Castle and Ayia Marina. The beach and the area are called Dio Liskaria, which means "two rocks", I think. A very lovely place, very bright during the day, sweet and quiet in the evening.
Thank you for visiting

I think the season hasn't quite taken off yet, or the crowds had just left this nice pebbly beach at this time of the day. In a composition like this the two empty sun-beds and the folded umbrella probably provide a better foreground than a few people. The yellow triangle (of different tones) is vbery eye-catching and I enjoy seeing traces of yellow continuing in the reflections in the quiet water. This is an excellent composition, but I think the water is still fairly cold, even here.

Special afternoon glow just on the trough between the two hills on far side, brightened the houses along the shore.
Fine the view from one side of the bay to another, calm sea's though it is not even summer.
No sand on the beach only small stones in brown and black, a bit itchy to walk barefoot...

Hello dear Ourania,
Another nice capture from Leros.
The beach is read for next summer.
Quite inviting scenery.
TFS and best regards

Ciao Ourania, gran bella composizione con sdraio e ombrellone sulla spiaggia deserta in primo piano e un delizioso villaggio a far da sfondo, in mezzo tanto mare, il favoloso bellissimo mare della Grecia, magnifica foto, bravissima, ciao Silvio

tempo fa avevo postato anche io una foto con due sdraie gialle.
Originale pov da una posizione un po' più alta, ma la cosa che preferisco è la differenza di luci che si vede sullo sfondo.

this deckchairs and umbrella seem to be sitting on the beach in great anticipation of the coming summer season. This time in Greece is full of impatience of waiting for tourists - I can observe that every day also in Lefkada. Very soon this beach will be full of holidaymakers though, and we will miss the quiet time ;-)
I like this image for the pretty composition and very good DOF. The town on the horizon has lovely light on which adds plenty of charm to the houses. Good framing and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

Lovely picture that makes me feel like stepping right into it and relaxing on one of the chairs that really look very comfortable. The framing is so different - not many photographers would have tried the vertical format with this scene - and really well composed with excellent sharpness and lovely subtle colours.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

A charming capture that brings to mind days spent at the seaside when a child and later when our own children were growing up. A thoughtful and very effective composition. Very pleasantly lit and with agreeable muted tones. Excellent control over depth of field.

Two seats waiting on the owners, it would are very difficult on the stones for to go sit.
Nice place with the water in centre of the picture.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent made.
Very well done, TFS.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
νωρίς είναι μου φαίνεται για ξαπλώστρες και ομπρέλες στην παραλία που απ΄ ότι βλέπω είναι άδεια από κόσμο.Είναι όμως μια ρομαντική στιγμή που το ηλιοβασίλεμα που πέφτει σιγά-σιγά έχει σκεπάσει με την σκιά του το μπροστινό μέρος της φωτογραφίας με τις ακτίνες του ήλιου που πέφτουν στο απέναντι χωριό,να το κάνουν να φαίνεται τόσο όμορφο.

I'm going to steal part of your note, I think the terms sweet and quiet sum this up succinctly. :) Not the typical sand beach, but it certainly doesn't need to be when the allure screams to do nothing more than sit back and relax.
I love the soft light across a majority of the frame, enticing that easy going attitude, but being broken by the highlights over the village in the distance...suggesting a playful atmosphere as well. I really like the four shades of yellow in the immediate foreground, each one distinct within it's defined object.
Like a television advertisement, I'm half expecting a spokesperson to walk into the frame and begin to entice viewers to come and visit. :) Interest from top to bottom, this is a very well layed out composition. Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.

It looks like a wonderful end to a beautiful day and the start of hopefully a romantic evening. The chairs are empty but somehow it doesn't conjure loneliness but rather calmness especially with the calm water. Love the colors. Very well done, tfs.

An ideal spot for relaxation overlooking the scenic bay as this looks neatly shot where everything is organised to draw the eyes. It's pleasantly coloured, exposed to the best with excellent contrasts. Fine shot, Congrats

What a lovely beach to be spending the late afternoon, after the heat of the sun is gone. A very inviting, serene photograph.
