A view through Lakki bay, one of the largest and safest harbours in the Mediterranean. It lies on the west of Leros and it's as large as a lagoon but its entrance is only 400m wide. On the right lies the port where a cargo ship is anchored at the moment.
The sailing boats participate in the 2nd Italo-Hellenic Friendship Regatta, organized by the Association with the same name.
The vantage point is on a hill at the brow of the bay, and the boats we see are preparing for the start while a few visiting sailboats are passing through. I watched the race from another elevated point near Cape Katsouni on the right of the entrance.
Thank you for visiting

A fantastic bay scenery, with fine clarity and smooth water surface and the many white boats sail on. Wide format well collected and the opening to outer sea in great DOF.
WEhere did you hide this pic. since taken in 2012 ? Charming panorama, my cong.'s,

I am a always satisfied that a photographer his own picture defended, about the horizontal line on your previous picture. This gives own value.
A lovely panorama view about these area with all these small sailboats.
You chose a very well angle nice between the two rocks
Excellent composition and nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

A splendid perspective over this delightful bay with its myriad of sailing ships. I like very much the pleasing light and agreeable colours.

taglio originale, dando molto spazio al cielo, il mare è come un foulard di seta con le barche dipinte.

Ton magnifique point de vue nous offre tout le trafic de voiliers dans la petite baie. Le cadrage est excellent et nous montre un beau pan de paysage. La lumière est superbe comme toujours en Grèce.

Your note alludes to the safety of the bay, and these calm blue waters and all of the boats certainly show that, it's a beautiful calm scene. I really like this name of this regatta too, very positive and I the spirit these things should be done. Nicely composed on thirds too, which allows a lot of free space for this fine blue sky. I hope you enjoyed the race!

Have a nice new week.

A very peaceful and pleasant view here. The sailing boats provide a nice pattern with all their white sails on the blue water. A beautiful landscape.

This is a very nice shot of this interesting bay. The inclusion of the trees in the foreground adds depth and framing for the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness and detail.

there's just something about this presentation that strikes me - it has a flat look to it. I like how its as if i'm sitting down at at restaurant table and looking out into the harbour.
very attractive set up
love the white sails too.
abmdsudi (58292) 2014-07-27 20:09
A well thought out and balanced composition despite the slight diffuse light with interest in depth. It's a beautiful Mediterranean seascape and a lovely spot to moor the boats that looks calm and tranquil at the moment. Good natural colours and contrast, with lovely touch of some bright colours for good visual effect. Excellent capture and fine effort as always, TFS.
mirosu (16273) 2014-07-28 1:19
Outstanding sea view, perfectly balanced composition. The overall light is very good and the arrangement with small white sailing boats and blue calm water is superb.
Very well done.
P.s. Sorry for my slow response, but my access to internet is not very regular during my travelling.
holmertz (59758) 2014-07-28 7:04
This is a lovely view, although I can only watch it on my mobile phone since a severe thunder storm "killed" my internet connection yesterday :-(. You have an original composition where the fluffy soft-edged clouds dominate the view, although all the action is found near the bottom. I like that you somehow went against the rules. The effect is lovely and the blue tones are very attractive.

J'aime votre POV, le grand espace laisser au ciel, les bateau parsemés sur la mer, j'aime sa couleurs, l'effet reluisant, le calme et la lumière douce du matin, belle présentation
Passer une agréable et belle soirée

A fine view of the calm Lakki Bay with the distant sails of the Regatta visible, and a large mountain background.
I would enjoy sailing and participating here.
