Located near Akrotiri, Red Beach (Kokkini Paralia) is one of the most famous and beautiful on the island of Santorini, Greece. Composed of black and red volcanic rocks with red lava cliffs that drop right down onto the red sands and crystal clear blue waters.

mai vista una spiaggia con colori così particolari, la roccia rossa le conferisce un aspetto molto originale, bello il colore dell'acqua e la sua trasparenza, eccellente il formato verticale e la qualità.
Un caro abbraccio

Hello Brian ,
Neighbours , today , with similar red rocks ! This is a stunning view of this beach nestled at the feet of the impressive red cliffs .Excellent composition with the stone in the FG .

very beautiful view on this color contrasted photo. The red rock cliff really stands out here in opposition to the blue sky, while the "little" umbrellas spreads out thru the tiny beach bellow.
I'm curious about one thing, is it possible to stand there on high tide? as it seems that the beach is very tiny and when the tide rises that doesn't seem to be so much space between the cliff and water...

Spectacular red beach, never seen before in Greece. Your shot is impecable, as always. Thanks Brian!

This is a nice picture.
Excellent composition, with the clear pebbles in the fg, the red rocks is also looking so great.

Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Composition and presentation are amazing.
Very nice picture, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Now that's a crowded beach! I am curious how they all get down there when there don't appear to be any stairs or catwalks around to the next bay. Anyway a magnificent high pov with striking warm cold colour contrasts between the red cliffs & blue sky & blue green sea. Tfs!

Superbe paysage pleine nature Brian,
Des oranges foncés qui joutent avec les bleus intenses du ciel, au niveau des couleurs, c'est très réussi.
Le format vertical semble être le bon choix.
jjcordier (79297) 2012-04-24 5:05
La couleur rouge de ces falaises est impressionante et contraste magnifiquement avec les couleurs de l'eau et du ciel. Elle ne laisse pas beaucoup de place à la plage qui semble pourtant très fréquentée. Excellente photo.

Your shot reminds me a bit of dta's work, your neighbour for the day. Colour saturation tends to be just a bit high in some of your shots (imho), but here it is spot on. The landscape is impressive, especially with the miniature, but crowded beach below. I also like your choice of format here.
juliettecorvett (1189) 2012-04-24 6:01
wonderful colours and composition! seems to be a special scenery for a greek landscape, i've never seen such red cliffs there before.

Hello Brian - The cluster of beach umbrellas look totally dwarfed by the majestic red cliffs, they add a super feel for the scale of the landscape and a nice bright contrast across the frame. Very well managed detail, I like the folded horizons visible in the cliff face and sharp rocks clearly visible beneath the sea. Beautiful colours too. Warm regards Rosemary

Budapestman (82620) 2012-04-24 13:31
great view, the composition is fantastic, beautiful colours and lights, the POV is superb, Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hetet kívánok!

At first, I did not perceive the crowds of people on the beach and when I did, my whole concept of scale altered, showing the importance of such details.
I like how you have created the sense of depth by using the f/g details, set against the blue of the sea. The red cliffs are amazing keeping the interest right into the b/g.
My warm regards,
Cricri (120491) 2012-04-24 23:39
Excellent POV qui permet d'avoir une jolie vue d'ensemble sur cet endroit magnifique, des couleurs incroyable des roches, la transparence de l'eau, beau contraste des couleurs, superbe
patdeph (35748) 2012-04-25 2:48

Ciao Brian, great POV on lovely beach with fascinating cliffs, fantastic blue sea, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
willperrett (11066) 2012-04-25 4:50
For me the scene - not the photograph - is marred somewhat by the beach umbrellas sardined onto that strip of sand. I've not been back to Santorini since 1982, and even then the island was a very popular destination. And that was before the airport was opened. Now I guess every nook and cranny has been "developed". But it's still a spectacular place, as your photograph ably demonstrates.
Sonata11 (33871) 2012-04-25 8:55
Indeed, this beach is red. An amazingly beautiful. We cavsee how planty of peoole enjoying. Wonderfully flawlessly executed. The seascape is striking marvellous. Colors, sharpness, clarity, POV and DOF are fabulous. I love it. Spectacular view.
All the best,
Bartleby (13552) 2012-04-25 9:22
wow impressive color indeed! Careful framing as always. I like it.
baclama (18834) 2012-04-25 9:26
but there are many, many people on the beach!!
when I was: no transat, no body just red rocks!!
wonderful colors for this beautiful place!
HimalAnda (10669) 2012-04-25 11:44
The colors are nice and the composition is good.
Well, there isn't a lot of green grass in this place!
bergese (6699) 2012-04-26 3:06
Une vue magnifique sur cette roche rouge qui contraste merveilleusement avec le bleu du ciel et l'eau.
Hellas (6945) 2012-04-26 4:04
Πολύ καλή οπτική γωνία διάλεξες Brian, για να αποδώσεις με τον καλύτερο τρόπο αυτό που ζητούσες!
Πλούσιο χρώμα και εξαιρετικές λεπτομέρειες σε όλο το βάθος του πεδίου!
Είναι ωραίο να "βιώνεις" τις διακοπές σου, εξασφαλίζοντας για τον εαυτό σου αλλά και για τους δικούς σου ανθρώπους, διαλεχτές εικόνες.
Να είσαι καλά!
macjake (69105) 2012-04-26 14:40
For sure when we think about Greece, we don't think about red, but we do here in this scene.
Its a great addition how the rocks in the lower fg can be seen just beneath the water surface, i think that adds alot to the overall photo.
great shot once again, really like it for its colors, compo and atmosphere.
delpeoples (58572) 2012-04-26 23:03
Hi dear Brian
First we had the White Cliffs of Mother England and now the red cliffs of Greece. You should start at Theme! But back to the photo, the contrast between the two landscapes is striking. I love the textures of this and of course the strong colours. The limpid water with all those rocks lying just under the surface is really beautiful and the vertical frame you used really added alot of depth to the image. Great job.
Warm regards and HAPPY FRIDAY!

il rosso del costone sul mare è molto particolare e bello come tutta la natura selvaggia che avvolge la scena.
Fa impressione la spiaggia affollata da così tanta gente,
jmdias (65105) 2012-04-30 7:27
excellent vertical framing. the contrast of these colors is just amazing. beautiful light and sharpness. TFS.
ecmel (1367) 2012-06-11 2:27
I like your composition, the chosen point of view with the caldera cliffs- especially tephra layers - in the background and the clean waters of sea in the same frame. Well done.
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-07-17 17:08
The rocks/stone on the foreground and the
vertical position creates a beautiful
depth in the picture. Compsition, colors
and light management are as always excellent.
