A scene from the harbour of Ayia Marina today, early in the afternoon. The fishing harbour looks like a marina hosting yachts now and there are many more anchored in this and the other bays around the island.
The two little boys had been enjoying the sea, answering their mother's calls every now and then: "Not now!", "In a little while!"
Thank you for visiting. a great weekend to all

in questo momento sono al mare, ma non è la stessa cosa :-(
Acqua limpidissima e bello scenario, molto più facile trovare di peggio che di meglio...
Ma anche l'occhio vuole la sua parte e mi accontento di gustarmi la tua foto.

The two little boys playing in the water add to the charm and complete the composition, whilst also serving to give depth to the scene. I like the point of view and the lovely light and colours. Some very expensive hardware parked up there.

This is a nice capture of these little boys enjoying the cooling water. The yachts in the background add interest for the shot. The inclusion of the old wall anchors the shot nicely.

Pleasant composition nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

The note makes me smile. No mother could drag her child quickly from water looking so warm, clear and inviting. They are small but provide such lovely brightness to the foreground. The well known view looks different today with those large yachts that I can't recall seeing on any of your earlier photos from here. The size of the left one doesn't quite fit the dimensions of the harbour. It looks like a lovely day, like almost every day in Greece in summer, but just for once I don't have to envy you your hot summer. Scandinavia has been going through a long period of very hot weather too.

I also would be yelling "Not now", if asked to leave.
The ancient rock building is intriguing, contrasting with the large modern yachts anchored beyond. I would be satisfied to sail in a small vessel these attractive Aegean waters.
Thanks for sharing,
Have a great weekend,

The modern yachts contrast to the old edifice on side, and the two kids swimming in water added onderful charm to the whole.
Beautiful combined the blue smooth sea and the diagonal slope of the mountain.
Enjoy your weekend,

Yes, "Not now - in a while..." are words which any parent will immediately recognise and remember, especially when their children were having fun and didn't want to return to boring old mum and dad.
But the two children here certainly add life and heaps of foreground interest to your lovely photograph as they splash about in the shallows - but this is also a fine view across the harbour to the distant boats, buildings and hills.
A lovely composition with life, good light and colours and excellent details and clarity.

Lovely composition with the clear water providing excellent colours with so many subtle variations. You managed the exposure superbly to bring out everything with great clarity and sharpness. The framing is superb too with the old building at the right providing the perfect balance and the gently rising hill with the buildings and the boats the perfect background. And of course, the two children are the perfect subjects.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
Have a nice Sunday.

Ευχαριστώ για την θερμή υποδοχή, έχω γίνει μανούλα και ο χρόνος μου είναι περιορισμένος.
Μια υπέροχη καλοκαιρινή σύνθεση απο το όμορφο νησί σου. Με πολύ καλό βάθος και φωτισμό. Μου αρέσει που έβαλες τα παιδάκια στην σύνθεση.
Καλό βράδυ και καλό μήνα,

Hi dear Ourania, how are you?
Very typical Summer image at all! Great Greece!
So tasteful and natural snap shot in the secret beach resort. The best framework and well balanced composition via sharp / clear presnetation is so marvelous as usual.
All the best and have a good start of a new week!

Il règne un calme profond , aucun bateau ne navigue, l'eau est merveilleuse, j'aimerai être a la place des enfants, une eau cristalline qui donne envie de s'y baigner
Belle et agréable soirée
bema (26293) 2014-08-05 12:07
Kalispera dear Ourania,

Leros looks lovely. I hope the tourist crowds come back to improve the economy of Greece. The water looks nice and I like the turquoise colour. Good sharpness. The 2 bathers reluctant to leave animate the scene. Tfs!

What a beautiful, pleasant-looking and inviting place by the sea!
What an attractive picture too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

An excellent diagonal line separating the sky from the earth, crystal clear waters and lovely colors.
