A while after we left the cove I presented in my previous upload ("Kimissi on Lipsos"), we saw two identical speedboats on the horizon, travelling side by side. They continued towards us. As they were approaching full speed, we startled. At a safe distance and without lowering their speed, they split and passed from either side of us. This one passed from my side:)
The island in the background is Patmos.
Thank you for visiting

Inspite the relative risk, managed superbly the swift passage of the boat. The people on its upper front deck, seem not to be holding themself in safety - but looks to enjoy its speed.
Superbly collected the moment, with beautiful blue sea and the white wakes created.
Enjoy the rest of sunday,

Ουρανία γεια σου,
επεφύλαξες υπέροχη είσοδο στο κάδρο για το ταχύπλοο με τους ξένοιαστους φιλοξενούμενους ν΄απολαμβάνουν όλη αυτή την μαγεία της θάλασσας.Εξαιρετικά τα χρώματα όπως και το timing της λήψης.

A fine close-up on this speed boat with its sleek lines. Very well framed and ideally exposed to capture the motion. Lovely blue tones. Thanks for sharing.

A toy for the rich, but the boat makes nice foam at both sides
Colours and presentation are very well.
Excellent composition and good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Great shot, I can almost feel the power of the boat as it speeds over a very calm sea. The white of the spray contrasting with the blue sea.

Ήρθες να με πάρεις να πάμε βόλτα? όταν βλέπεις τέτοια σκάφη απλά αναστενάζεις και ζηλεύεις αυτούς που έχουν την πολυτέλεια να τα απολαμβάνουν. Μας δρόσισες και σήμερα.

C'est beau la vie des gens riches et célèbres.Tout cet argent pour payer l'essence et rouler à pleine vitesse et déranger ceux qui vont lentement. Par contre le cadrage est excellent et la lumière est jolie.

Those people on the deck look very relaxed indeed, if I was on a boat at this speed I'd be holding on for dear life, not relaxing with my hands behind my head! You captured a really great sense of speed with this, the foaming water all around the boat enhances this well. Very nice post and a summer scene that makes wish I was there right now.

I can never get enough of that deep Mediterranean blue...water and skies. :) This is quite a contrast in action, as we undoubtedly get the lively pace of the boat as it's flashing past...but the casual trio lying on the front end appear to be about as relaxed as ever. I just hope that boat didn't have to make a sudden stop, or they'll be catapulted right out of there! :o
An opportunity well seized once again, you must have cat-like reflexes to catch some of the events that surround you to end up with many fine, spontaneous shots. For a relatively minimal scene, this is full of excitement and speed. Enjoy the new week. Take good care.

A beautiful blue sea! I really envy the persons on the deck here, enjoying the speed of the boat and the shining sun. This is indeed "the good life"! A beautifully composed picture, with the boat going into the picture.

I think you had a bumpy moment soon after this, when the waves hit your boat. Or maybe waves from two sides neutralize each other? I am not very impressed by people who drive their boats, or cars, or motorbikes, ridiculously fast just to show off, but I am impressed by this photo, which leaves us in no doubt that this boat was approaching you at a high speed. At this moment your boat was still steady enough to allow you a crystal clear and sharp photo.

A very attractive composition with the speeding boat that, along with the foam, makes a very striking subject against the intense blue of the watef. The sense of movement is conveyed beautifully and i liked the lovely blue water in the foreground with the reflections. The hazy mountains in the distance make a great backdrop.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

Superbe prise et splendide bateau, j'aime comme sa vitesse pousse l'eau , la rend blanche et donne un merveilleux contraste avec le bleu azur de la mer, très belle réalisation
Bonne nuit :-)

une très belle photo d'une scène dynamique, avec un bon impact du bateau et de l'écume blanche dans cet environnement bleu.

Ciao Ourania, mi piacerebbe farci un giretto, bella sxena d'azione, magnifica vista di un fantastico mare, brava, ciao Silvio

Hola Ourania querida
I own you some comments but this capture attacks my attention and more after reading your note, obviously the driver knew how to do it, people on the ship seem relaxed and curious about your ship
The speed worked good, adding the eye catching kind of foam in the so blue sea
Well done, taken at the right moment

Hi Ourania dear
Extremist beauty shot of the boat. Higher exposure. Clearly seen. Thanks for recording this nice picture
pili51 (1377) 2014-09-01 15:42
γεια σου, ;) dear Ourania,
Wow - this is a great viewpoint.
Spectacular image with this speedboat.
I like the way that the water is disturbed giving a sense of movement.
I love the colors and the good dynamic. Excellent shot.
Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, and have a lovely week
