The three picturesque villages of Plaka, Triovasolos and Tripiti, looking northeast across the island of Milos at sunset. Its well worth getting the local bus up as near to the lookout at Plaka, as possible, for superb sunsets and views across the island, the most western of the Cyclades group. The main town of Adamas is in the bottom right corner and beyond. The three crosses bottom left are used at Easter to commemorate the Crucifixion of Christ at Calvary.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Cette vue plongeante sur la ville est superbement mise en image.
Nous pouvons détailler tous les points intéressants. Une réussite totale.

The wideness of thearea is gving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and the colours of the buildings or houses of the town. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

thanks for comment on my last photo - yes, it is very sad about Kunming station and makes me shiver just to think that I was there not that long time ago.
Coming back to this image - I think you chose just the best POB for such a great panorama. The white washed houses at the bottom of the hill contrast lovely with the rest of the environment and the sea seen further frames the photo very naturally.
Great colors and nicely handled light.
Thanks for sharing

a beautiful shot of this typically Greek village and in such a glorious setting. That magical Greek light that makes it look so idyllic and inviting. Superb!
Have a good week - B.

it is not easy to resist to fall in love with Greece when I see such a lovely view:) The soft light transforms the colors to a marvelous inviting pleasure and create a desire to visit the Greek archipelago again! Nice shot, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

this is a beautiful sweeping view, very thorough and clear, that allows us to study the morphology and architectural character of this part of the island, infer information on daily life and enjoy the lovely early evening atmosphere. I like very much the dynamic way in which the town spreads in the frame, the colours are natural and very agreeable. The light is very fine and highlights various parts of the scenery in a graceful way. Plaka must be a quite common name for towns and settlements all over Greece. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Beautiful shot of the village from such high POV, It makes it feel like I'm flying over the area on a small air craft. Perfect time of day with soft warm light that illuminated the whole landscape without too strong of shadow. Love the wide sweeping view with excellent quality and details.
nikkitta (17064) 2014-03-10 18:08
Great POV , almost aereal one, where you managed to show a great maririme landscape at the back and the white village at the front with the warm light of sunset
Impresive sharpness to enjoy details like vegetation and brick walls
Very well done
Sorry, can t find the crosses

Superb shot of the three picturesque villages of Plaka, Triovasolos and Tripiti.Nice image, sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done. TFS.

Jolie vue d'ensemble (et plongeante) sur cette pittoresque ville blanche et son bel environnement.
saxo042 (37730) 2014-03-11 1:30
The white houses here are nicely scattered over the brown ground. The blue water creates a good balance, both in the composition and as a colour.
Didi (59634) 2014-03-11 8:35
Very good dominant point of view
The evening time was the best moment in summer to take this picture
Very good lateral lights on the houses well balanced with soft shades
Cricri (113549) 2014-03-11 10:52
Un POV bien choisi, belle vue sur le village blanc, le paysage tout en profondeur, belle lumière et couleurs, très jolie
PaulVDV (25519) 2014-03-11 12:38
You looked for an excellent high POV for this view over the island and that fantastic coastline.
In summertime the Greek islands have only three colours: white, brown and blue but the views are always stunning.
Best regards, Paul
