One of the impressive schooners that visit Leros from Turkey. They usually spend a day or a few hours moored in a bay and then proceed to another bay or island.
I admired this travelling boat from various angles but didn't take a picture when we were next to it not to disturb the guests.
Lakki is already far away but we still haven't left its very long bay.
Thank you for visiting

Ciao Ourania, gran bella imbarcazione su un fantastico mare, gran tempismo nel riprendere la spuma in primo piano, brava, ciao Silvio

This is a great photo of the beautiful ship with the fine waves filling the foreground. The masts rise proudly towards the sky. The green hills provide a nicer background than just an empty horizon. There is no need to see the passengers from this distance and this angle, but you shouldn't worry too much about disturbing people who happen to come in front of your camera, as long as they'e not caught in an embarrassing situation.

Indeed a most impressive photograph. The boat looks elegant with the high masts against the sky and the clouds and you captured it in a beautiful off centred position. The foam in the foreground makes it very attractive and serves to balance the composition. Beautiful camera work and thanks for sharing it.
have a great new day.

une très belle qualité d'image et un très bon cadrage. Une mise en valeur très réussie pour cette belle marine.

Great photo of this beautiful ship. I like the low POV you chose, that also includes the foamy waves in the foreground. Thanks for sharing!

From a moving boat, managed a superb sharp details viewing the other vessel, and all other technical-details collected skillfully.
Bright daylight enhance the white waves/wakes of the boats, and blue sea is shining - literally.
Beautiful sight cruising, marvelous summer action.

A fine vessel making a fine show for your photograph. These "gulets" are sturdy boats, and very pleasing to the eye. Sadly they mostly motor around these days instead of sailing. I guess the guests don't want the hastle of ropes and canvas, and a sailing boat heeling might spill their gin and tonics! A good sight nevertheless.

Hello dear Ourania,
Another topclass capture in your gallery with very well chosen portrait format.
Full of joy and adrenalin.
TFS and best regards

A beautiful view of this big sailboat (or small ship) starting a journey from a little port. You have an excellent viewpoint from a boat leading the way. Spaciaous framing with a lot of blue sky and sea suits well.

bellissima imbarcazione, ma anche tu eri su una di quelle???
Si vede la scia della tua barca, deve essere anche più potente, visto che la stai superando.
Bello scatto, le scie creano dinamicità e la barca è splendida, peccato non poterla vedere con le vele spiegate.

This is an excellent photo, superb view to nice sailing ship. All in very good light and superb clarity. Nicely arranged in vertical format. The composition with the white water in foreground and the nice blue-white sky in background is perfect.
Very well done.

An image that really captures the motion and power of this splendid vessel. Excellent technical presentation.
Cricri (118917) 2014-08-14 10:18
Il fait contraste avec le votre :-) une très belle prise depuis votre bateau ou l'on voit sa force poussant l'eau et ainsi donnant un bel effet blanc et agitée, belle lumière et couleurs
Passer une bien agréable soirée

This is a fine vessel, there is something so noble about these tall masts that casts the mind back to days when they who ruled the sea ruled the world, unlike today when the air is the true seat of control. As in previous shots you have shared, there is an excellent sense of motion in this, brought about by the movement of the ship in its tilt, and the white frothing water in the foreground. The light, it goes without saying, is beautiful.
Thanks as always

A great capture of this schooner a nice low POV that shows the elegance of this vessel as she glides through the sea. Nice detail in the waves thrown up by your vessel.

Hola Ourania querida
Only person to remember it my name day, was waiting for your greeting σας ευχαριστώ !!!
What a fresh capture, a good one with the white foam at the front on the deep blue waters and then, the ship and the mast up contrasting with the sky
Good to frame in vertical format
Enjoy Summer, warm regards

It's a beautiful boat and even from a distance you took a nice shot with good colours and sharpness. I like the movement of the water in foreground.
