A view to Ayia Marina from the area called Brouzi, at the promontory that closes the bay of Alinda to the south. It was midday when I took this picture and the light was difficult but I liked the arrangement of the boats.
Many little fishing boats appear in the harbours of Leros in the summer time and all of the bays host numerous yachts, especially at weekends.
Thank you for visiting, a great weekend to all

A lovely picture with the small boats, with the village on the slope of the mountain.
Excellent panorama view about these area.
Lovely composition, nice presentation.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

This is a very pleasing and attractive photograph which, as your title suggests, is restful and relaxing to view.
Your composition is excellent with the little stone jetty leading the eye nicely from the bottom left corner, up past the boats floating in a lovely blue sea, upwards to the buildings across the bay and then to the hilltop above.
Glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

Light condition perfectly handled, and the result is a beautiful bay view.
Blue sea and white houses with the anchored boat on calm surface - made this pic. so wonderful.
Cheers, and nice weekend,

A very attractive image, carefully composed and benefiting from a lovely light and pleasing natural tones. The stone pier makes an excellent pointer toward the boats, which then direct our attention to the far shore. Very good clarity. Have an enjoyable weekend.

Ουρανία μου, για μενα δεν υπάρχει πιο ομορφο πράγμα απο το να ξυπνάω το πρωι και να βλέπω αυτην την θέα...αγαλλιάζει η ψυχη μου με τήν ηρεμια και τήν ομροφιά αυτου του τοπίου!!
πάντα μοναδική και θα ελεγα μεγαλειώδης αυτη η αντίθεση του γαλάζιου με τα ασπρα σπιτάκια!!
ομορφα και ενδιαφέροντα τα μακρινά και εξωτικά μέρη αλλά σαν τήν πατριδα μας...κανένα!!!
καλη σου μέρα, αντε να δουμε τι θα γινει με τους δυο εναπομείναντες αγωνες...μετα διακοπές!!!

Another restful capture that is easy on the eye, with the clear water near the jetty slowly turning into blue with the small boats bobbing on the water.
You always find a new angle to the shots of Ayia Marina and never fail to please with your eye for something new.TFS. Have a nice weekend.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui donne énormément de profondeur à la scène.A partir du petit quai en glissant sur l'eau limpide et les beaux petits bateaux pour arriver au loin vers les maisons blanches qui poussent en hauteur sur la colline. La lumière est très grecque.

The boats were placed here by their owners, but from your chose angle they are indeed very nicely lined up. This composition also includes a nice looking, simple pier with an almost red rope lying partly in the water as a simple but attractive detail. The midday light and colours look almost as fresh as they would have done a few hours earlier, so you handled the slightly difficult circumstances perfectly.
Have a nice weekend.

A beautiful scene, and you have created perfect depth, particularly by composing the little rock jetty in the lower left as you have, it reaches into the scene and makes me want to walk in on it and jump into one of the little boats. A beautiful scene, and as always I am a fan of the architecture and how it is spread across the land like this.
The water is so beautifully clear!
Thanks as always and have a great weekend.
P.S. thank you again for your visit to my pics, and your words. You have a brilliant way of helping me see things in my own pictures that I did not spot, but that I may have subconsciously like, and it is helping me with my learning here on trekearth immensely. I thank you sincerely :)

An excellently composed picture starting with the small stone pier on the foreground that leads us to the boats which themselves are nicely lined up and take our eyes to the other side of the bay with all the white houses on the mountain slope.
The crystal clear water in front looks very beautiful so shining in the sunlight.
Best regards, Paul

nice view on a composition of a beautiful depth and with nice contrasts.
carlo62 (36065) 2014-07-12 15:10
bella composizione e bella messa a fuoco, il taglio verticale e il piccolo molo in diagonale creano una perfetta profondità che spinge lo sguardo fin sopra la collina.
Bella e trasparente l'acqua, difficile da trovare qui vicino...

Une très jolie image, bien composer et réaliser, j'aime la transparence de l'eau, la jetée de pierres qui accentue la profondeur, composer de petits bateaux, une vue imprenable sur la colline aux maisons blanches, très joli votre région
Belle et agréable soirée

look like you are not to busy in the summer to take picture - I hardly find some time to flick through the pictures on TE :-) Shame because from what I see if one waits a bit for the right moment the summery photos could be just lovely. You chose very good POV for this one with the stones pier and orange rope on it creating strong element in the foreground. The boats resting on the sea have been placed cleverly in the composition and the town in the distance offers charming background.
Very pretty and well executed picture.
Thanks for sharing
nikkitta (15718) 2014-07-14 11:11
certainly it s Summer time over there, so more time for photos and longer days
Here you composed carefully this scene where I like the long stone in diagonal at the front and the sunny village at the back
And yes all seems quiet and resting, may be having lunch
Impressive water transparency, a pleasure to watch and comment, greetings and enjoy Summer
Thanks once more for your good notes about the Cup

A beautiful little spot and think the timing was right on to capture excellent variation in colours of the water from shallow to deep framed by the beautiful backdrop. Lovely Mediterranean colors nicely exposed and the ambience evoking a sense of stillness and peace. Wonderful well balanced composition nicely taken, Congrats
cornejo (33958) 2014-07-18 10:51

clear water, interesting coastal scenery, well done, congratulations!

What a beautiful summer postcard! You have seen and presented this scene so well in the vertical cropping with very well executed natural colors. All look charming and stunning here. Well done:)
Have a nice weekend!
asajernigan (21372) 2014-07-30 3:36
You chose a nice POV for this shot using the pier to lead the eye to the boats. The boats create a repeating pattern that leads the eye to the city. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.

After having walked all over Pittsburgh, I could dip my feet in those crystalline waters. Nicely done, as usual.
