A little fishing boat moored at Palionisos Beach, a beautifully picturesque haven which lies in a secluded narrow little bay on the north east coast of the island of Kalymnos, Greece. Once only easily accessible from the sea it now has a new road that enables easier access. Much loved by the locals with crystal clear water and an abundance of fish, urchins and crabs, which they collect in the large wicker basket and then barbeque on the beach.

A very well composed shot, has the boat positioned on a diagonal, with the rope adding a useful lead line but what really sets the eyes open wide is that amazing reflection in the water! The colour tones are iridescent! It emphasises the clarity of the water so very much and, as an added bonus, shows the briefest reflection on the boat's prow.
Have a lovely day,

Orange, yellow & blue... With these three contrasting colours you captured it nicely, Brian. Simple view of the boat but it looks so nice due to the calmness of the place. Beautifully presented with nice reflection in water. Like the depth and sharpness of this image. A very good one. Tfs.

The framing is ideal, but as Bev says it is the lighting and the reflections that really capture the eye. Complemented by superb colours and sharpness. Very well observed and beautifully presented.

Good Morning Brian
Great light and colours from this scene that reminds me of a biblical scene on the Sea of Galilee!

Your next photo that I like very much. Its colours are like on impressionist painting - vivid and clean. I like this very nice, beautiful composition!.

oggi ci ha unito una sorta di telepatia perchè abbiamo proposto entrambi delle barche, sia pure di forme e colori molto diverse.
Non c'è dubbio che la tua è molto più interessante della mia, per per il luogo nella quale è inserita, sia per i colori suoi e dell'ambiente che la circonda.
La lontananza dalla folla poi si addice a perfezione e valorizza ulteriormente questo bel soggetto.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Fresh seafood, what a pleasure Brian and what could be finer than eating a plate of BBQ'd fish on the shores here and watching the little boat bob in the calm, clear water? A restful and attractive shot. This is what holidays are about! Warm regards rosemary

Sublime couleurs de la barque, des reflets et de touts les détails, très jolie composition

I was all set to comment on your previous picture...and then I opened up your gallery to find this one, and I just can't resist! Even more than any technical details, I most enjoy the sentiment conveyed here. It may be a still shot, but I can envision seeing the boat boat gently rocking on the waters surface, and hearing the faint splash as it touches shore. Incredible transition of color in that clear water, adding even more appeal in conjunction with that most sumptuous and soft light reflected on the bow of the boat. Simple, and simply beautiful! Enjoy the weekend. Take care.
BTW - no recent loss of pants. :) Thanks for the laughs.

Jolie lumière que tu as su exploiter au mieux pour rendre l'effet de transparence de l'eau et donner de belles couleurs à l'ensemble. Belle photo....comme toujours!
willperrett (4095) 2013-08-24 3:14
Hope there's plenty of fish in that basket! Simple composition, which benefits from your expulsion of any extraneous elements, like that new road for instance!

High quality photo, beautiful boat contrasting with the blue water, very well composed and presented
macjake (45588) 2013-08-24 11:03
As i scrolled down the photo, i realized its just as nice when the top landscape disappears.
having just the boat and the water could be just as an effective compo.
i absolutely love the sharpness, the rippling water, the textures on the boat and the strange green/yellow colors.

A beautiful capture of an anonymous office work. Great warm colors of that deep calm moment. Well taken, have a good night.
