I noticed this scene as I was leaving the beach of Gourna, at its northern end.
Leros has many inlets and beaches but most of them are small. This is one of the longest beaches, it's flat, sandy and the waters are too shallow, you have to walk a long way in the sea to reach the deep.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely Sunday to all

Best place to park your scooter on a very hot day, otherwise you are liable to end up with a very warm behind when you come to go home:-) I like this composition, it has a very pleasant mood to it, enhanced by the sight of the bathers in the background. Nicely framed with good colours and clarity. Very good rendering of the textural detail in the old tree trunks. I wish you a pleasant Sunday afternoon.

questa foto mi ricorda i giorni spensierati della giovinezza, quando prendevamo i nostri mezzi per andare al mare tutti in compagnia, ridendo e scherzando, i pensieri erano lontani o venivano dimenticati facilmente.
Una foto bella e romantica, di quel romanticismo da romanzo.

In Belgium is the sun a precious subject, but in Greece is the sun almost Always present.
These two scooters wait indeed in shade on his owners, these are busy swimming in the lake in background.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day.

so even the moped people get to hoot in the sun and need to take a moment out to cool down :) I am sorry if it's tiresome that I keep referring to them as such but you have a unique skill that really breathes personality into these cute little vehicles. It really does look like it's just watching the world go by from its shaded vantage point. Thanks for another pic that made me smile!
have a great Sunday

Je comprends pourquoi ils mettent les scooter à l'ombre car le siège de cuir doit devenir très chaud si on le laisse au soleil. Le point de vue nous permet de bien voir la jolie plage à l'arrière plan.

The blue scooter fills the foreground well and provides a piece of strong colour. Even from this distance I can fell the shade offering some relief from the heat on the beach. That feeling gives the photo a pleasant atmosphere. On Antiparos there is a sandy beach often known as Baby Beach, because the water is so shallow that the only ones who enjoy it are small children.

What I like most on this view, is the close distance of the trees to the waterfront, a shaded refuge from the sea.
Parking scooters under shade, and the people in the water made a good scale to comprehend.
Nice placed POV under the green foliage with diff. light well managed.
Have a nice new week ahead,

une bonne prise de vue, bien composée avec la Vespa en premier plan.
J'aime bien l'idée de la Vespa qui invite à l'évasion

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
πολύ όμορφη καλοκαιρινή σκηνή από την παραλία,
με την βέσπα να πρωταγωνιστεί σε πρώτο πλάνο!

TFS and best regards
PS.Take a look to the WS !

With only "specks" of people in the background to connect with the human element, you've come across and put together a picture which is tantalizing alive with a quaint appeal. The fact that people can just leave their shoes along side their mopeds speaks to the small town safety and easy going lifestyle.
The entire visual looks and feels carefree and extremely welcoming. Not only that, but the moped is blue...and that'll always catch my eye. :) Looks like a wonderful place to pull up under the shade, hang out with a group of friends, go for a swim, or just prop yourself up against the tree and take a nap. :) A telling representation of the every day life. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Superb arrangement, excellent combination of nice natural beach area nature and the vehicles bringing the people there. The blue motorcycle is an excellent focal point; the light contrast is very good.
Very well done.

J'aime le cadrage du scooter ( cela me rappelle le tour de Koss en scooter), sa couleur bleu et l'arrière plan ou s'amuse des personnes dans la mer, les couleurs sont belles, superbe présentation de votre bateau en WS
Une bonne fin d'après midi

Hello Ourania, Nice scene. The people came by scooter, left the shoes and went to swim. With the shallow water it is a good beach top families with children. How nice it must be there, with the shining sun and clear warm water in the sea.
Lovely summer atmosphere.
