View from Mt Patella to the south-east. We can see a large part of Lakki bay and the Marina of the same name. Well organized and popular, this marina is one of the best in the Aegean.
The area from the foreground to the curve of the bay hosted a lot of structures and ammunition storerooms for the defense of the island, constructed during the Italian possession of the Dodecanese. A few ruins can be seen on the coast in the middle ground but there are also several tunnels.
One of them has been converted into a very interesting War Museum, dedicated to the Battle of Leros. (Several photos of the Tunnel Museum can be seen on http://www.atlasvisual.com/leros-war-museum/photos)
This area also offers very pleasant walking routes.
Thank you for visiting, a great weekend to all

Stunning blue bay scenery, Ourania.
View from a high point superbly taken, fine clear day. The white houses and the port shown in distance and with great sharp details.
Photojob well done.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

another beautiful landscape scene, these rich blues make me jealous :) today it ids twenty eight degrees in Ireland but still the clouds will not go away!
Interesting name too, isn't the patella the name for the kneecap? I wonder if that comes from here?
thanks as always

Quel beau point de vue sur cette superbe baie aux eaux limpides. Les villages et maisons au loin semblent bien loin mais le tout est d'une grande netteté sous une lumière parfaite.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη η πανοραμική θέα του κομματιού αυτού του νησιού από το Όρος Πατέλλα,καθώς μπορεί να δει κάποιος την υπέροχη δαντελωτή ακτογραμμή,που καταλήγει στο λιμάνι.Εξαιρετικός ο φωτισμός όπως και η απόδοση των χρωμάτων.

Hi dear Ourania, how are you?
Great landscape presenting your great country so well.
The proportion and balane of the sky, the sea and land are so natural and reasonable. I like this impressive and sharp color touch so much, mastreful work as usual.
Best regards and have a good Sunday! Takero from Tokyo

An ideal spot for relaxation overlooking the scenic blue bay as this looks neatly shot where everything is organised to draw the eyes. It's pleasantly coloured, exposed to the best with excellent contrast. A truly awesome place. Fine shot, Congrats and tfs

un beautiful pov on this landscape between blue sea and village, light is plaisant, tfs.

This is again a photo with fine tones of mainly green, but this time I find the greatest interest in the topography of the scenery with its many hills and bays. I also enjoy watching the secluded bays and the open sea at the same time. The presence of the empty horizon makes me appreciate the well protected marina ase the haven of safety which it is.
