This picture was taken on the way towards the top of Mt Patella, at a lower point than my previous photo. We left the car at a broad curve of the winding road and took a path not known by many, leading to a cave that was used in dramatic 1943 as a hideout by the military commander of the island Luigi Mascherpa.
The final part of the path leading to the entrance of the cave is hidden itself behind rocks, this is the view one leaves behind in order to follow it. The sea is a small part of Lakki Bay.
Thank you for visiting

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
γωνιά-γωνιά μαθαίνω τη Λέρο μέσα απ τις φωτογραφές σου :)
το βάθος,η ευκρίνεια καθώς και ο φωτισμός είναι εξαιρετικά,
τα χρώματα είναι φυσικά και γενικά η φωτογραφία σου δίνει την αίσθηση ότι κοιτάς το μέρος μέσα από ένα παράθυρο!

It certainly makes an excellent lookout point covering the road and the bay. The composition is pleasingly balances and benefits from a pleasant ambient light and appealing natural tones. Amazing depth and superb clarity.

A lovely panorama view about these area, with the road twisting through the landscape.
Also a very nice mountain landscape picture.
A nice composition, pleasant presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Je crois que j'aimerais vraiment conduire sur cette belle route sinueuse en bord de mer. C'est d'ailleurs ce qui manque à la photo: une voiture sur la route qui apporterait le cinquième élément nécessaire.

Thanks for the warm critique from the expert( of reflections like mine).
The scene from a higher terrain over the bay and surrounding mountains is most impressive, and beautiful landscape and blue sea.
The trail taking the sight onto the far curve disappearing around the slope - but only on my second glance, I discovered that it goe's back through the trough just bellow the place you taken this photo, and a fabulous green grove in fresh colrs.
Lovely taken, intriguing hike taken, rendered a fine picture.

The wedge of blue water and the turning road are very fine parts of this picture. It looks very warm here! An interesting view, much different from a Nordic forest...

Lovely, almost summer, landscape post. The road created a really interesting picture here and added something quite original to the view. Well seen and managed with charming natural tonality. TFS!

It's a breath taking coastal scene with the winding road being integral part of the shot, but my eye meanders around the triangle - the eye catching blue water as a superb colour separator breaking the dominating tone of the scene. The lighting is pleasing, wonderful crisp and great processing. I find this expansive scene pleasing enough on the eye nicely put together. Well done, TFS

This does feel like we are viewing a secret, hidden place and that is really cool. Its always so great to see a place as beautiful as this that I guess so few would know about. The forest area is really lovely with a fine range of colors across the land and the pathway is sweeping and inviting.
Thanks for sharing a secret place :)

Nice view and a composition well balanced with thes erocks in the FG, nice light and effect also with the sinuous road on the slope.

I am some kind of student of history and your photo and information are wonderful addition to my meager knowledge of what happened in Greece during WWII, thanks. Beautiful landscape, nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

For some reason, this scenery reminded me of the road that went from Bandırma to Erdek, places where I spent three years of my childhood. Lovely scenery!
