The sun rises and the fisherman leaves Castellorizo Island port for his daily labor.
Castellorizo, (Greek: Καστελόριζο - or Kastelorizo, officially Μεγίστη - Megisti), is a Greek island and municipality located in the southeastern Mediterranean. It lies roughly 2 km (1 mi) off the south coast of Turkey, about 570 km southeast of Athens and 125 km (78 mi) east of Rhodes, almost halfway between Rhodes and Antalya and 280 km (174 mi) to Cyprus.Kastelorizo is part of the Rhodes peripheral unit.
The meaning of its current official name Megisti (Μεγίστη) is "Biggest" or "Greatest", but at only 11.987 km2 (5 sq mi) in area, it is the smallest of the Dodecanese. The name, however, refers to the fact that it is the largest of the small archipelago.

Υπέροχα χρώματα του δειληνού και μου αρέσουν οι αντιθέσεις των μαύρων σιλουέτων. Πολή καλή λήψη.

καλησπέρα dear Michael
Sunset, the silhouette of the mountains, sea and wherry is very looks beatiful.
There is really a very romantic view of the islands.
