In northern of Milos, 4km. north-east of Plaka,the capital of island,is found one of the most shot landscapes in Aegean,a small gulf, that entertains the graphic fish village of Firopotamos.
Firopotamos entertains one from the better beaches of island and it is a graphic small port built round a natural creek with green all around waters that promise unforgettable moments of beauty and recreation.
In the creek of Firopotamos, exist also sirmata :the small lodges in which are looked after the boats of at the Wintry period and which, the summertimes, the householders use as Summer rural residences.
Στο βόρειο άκρο της Μήλου, 4χλμ. βορειοανατολικά της Πλάκας, της πρωτεύουσας του νησιού, βρίσκεται ένα από τα πιο πολυφωτογραφημένα τοπία στο Αιγαίου, ένας μικρός κόλπος, που φιλοξενεί το γραφικό ψαροχώρι του Φυροποτάμου.
Ο Φυροπόταμος φιλοξενεί μια από τις καλύτερες παραλίες του νησιού και είναι ένα γραφικό λιμανάκι κτισμένο γύρω από ένα φυσικό κολπίσκο με καταπράσινα νερά που υπόσχονται αξέχαστες στιγμές ομορφιάς και αναψυχής.
Στον κολπίσκο του Φυροποτάμου, υπάρχουν και τα περίφημα σύρματα :τα μικρά σπιτάκια μέσα στα οποία φυλάγονται οι βάρκες κατά τη χειμερινή περίοδο και τα οποία, τα καλοκαίρια, οι ιδιοκτήτες χρησιμοποιούν για θερινές κατοικίες.

Your beautiful image gives me a great desire to take a dip, what a sea and what a green water!

une crique qui ressemble un peu a celle des calanques de marseille, avec une couleur d'eau aussi belle et claire
macjake (60508) 2010-01-21 9:45
colourful arrangement. the boat matches the coloured stonework in the middle of the frame. love the aqua green as well.
asajernigan (21400) 2010-01-21 10:10
This is a nicely composed shot with the pier leading the eye into the shot. The blue water is great and is the big star of this shot. The boat adds a nice point of interest in the foreground of the shot. The lighting and colors are fine as is the photo's sharpness.
belido (19934) 2010-01-21 10:17
this is trully a wonderful place. I'm amazed by the color of the water. It's so clean! Great shot, full of colors and superb definition. What I like here as the second focal point are the red/blue circles and the inclusion of the man. Well done!
bracasha75 (24585) 2010-01-21 10:19
This place looks like excellent place for sommer holidays and nice hiden beach behind the hills
Longroute (19396) 2010-01-21 10:27
Really an emerald water!
A place where to have a fine bath in summer or dine maybe in a taverna....
You found a very good light which enhances the colour of the sea. Fine perspective and depth given by this small pier and the small boat is just what it needed as a fine and interesting focal point.

The dots are leading my eyes toward the houses which is giving depth to the composition. The prsence of the person has an effect of scale. The reflection of the light on the water has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
leonorkuhn (16235) 2010-01-21 18:36
White, blue and red colors are repeated in the pier and the boat on the green waters of Milos. The scene is fantastically beautiful. The sun creates wonderful effects on the sea. The light is great here.

Hi Danos, A beautiful photo with glorious clear water offering a welcoming feel, the walkway leads the eye nicely into the picture & the glistening of light on the water adds attraction, wonderful colours & TFS, kind regards Wilson.
gunbud (34066) 2010-01-22 18:11
The glimmering turquoise of varying shades really makes this image shine.
The old cement pier leads the eye nicely towards the beach and rugged hills.
Of course we cannont forget the fisherman's wooden boat.

Bonjour, mon ami Danos,

really an impressive water color on this island beach, and curious this paint on the pier too, I like! Great job, my friend.
gervaso (11262) 2010-01-24 3:59
It's a wonderful place with this clear water, and you show it from a great POV and with good depth. The colorful details of the pier give a special beauty to the image. Beautiful job!

josepmarin (57881) 2010-01-24 12:34
Really, the emerald colour of the water is a very important factor in the great beauty of this composition.
The landscape is magnificent, I like the tranquility that inspires us, while the small wharf invites to a bath in these beautiful and transparent waters.
A superb work, my friend.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2010-01-24 13:22
Good evening Danos,

fabianoleite (9671) 2010-01-24 14:03
The waters really look like a swimming pool, incredible. The inclusion of the man on the platfrom was well chosen. Good combination of blue, red, and white, both on the boats and on this line. Very good, congratulations!
delkoo (68) 2010-01-25 0:16
the clarity and the cleanliness of the water is an invitation for a dip, I also really like the red dots which guiding the glance into the photo.
siolaw (38292) 2010-01-25 2:53
Good high POV on the scene, well framed too. The water colour is tantalizing! I like the repetition of the blue and red colors on the wharf and also on the small boat!
adramad (40138) 2010-01-25 5:23
Wonderful waters, emerald and transparency make us want a vacation in a place like that, the ship and the quay colorful items add interest to the composition, which conveys the quiet shade of the trees in the background next to the small beach. A great composition.
Have a nice week.
supi4u (599) 2010-01-25 19:38
Wonderful landscape Amazing color of water. Very good lighting and good color composition.
JCG (35129) 2010-01-25 21:58
One would not believe oneself in autumn here but in summer, the tourists in less !!! Good choice of framing with this coloured low wall which gives a pleasant depth to this superb marine landscape. Beautiful management of the lights and colors of the image. I will like to take a bath… Thank you Danos.
With all my friendships and a very good day,
anducina (8407) 2010-01-25 23:01
Excellent colors and atmosphere. I like the transparent, sun-lighted blue water and the colorful boat, distant houses and pier. It seems like a summer day, but I see that in fact it was October. Blue sea and summer atmosphere in October-wonderful ! You know, I am not a great winter fan...
jafadabret (56501) 2010-01-25 23:55
La couleur de l'eau est bien ce qui frappe dès qu'on voit cette photo. La barque et la jetée donnent des couleurs vives qui font ressortir encore plus la couleur de l'eau.
alin-m (3716) 2010-01-26 0:32
Indeed a wonderful color of the water.
Very beautiful summer picture.Well done.

marietom (34609) 2010-01-30 10:07
très jolies couleurs dans cette composition, qui donne envie de vacances.
guitianmiranda (5325) 2010-01-31 3:49
Wonderful waters, you are right.
What I like the best of this picture is its composition, including the pier, the boat, the man and the colour full houses in the background. Little bit saturated, textures and lights are also good.
Best regards Danos.
UlfE (14641) 2010-02-01 10:05
A wonderful scene. I believe that everybody loves the emerald colour of the crystal clear water. Your POV is great and contributes to the attractiveness. The painting on the wall of the pier is a real eye catcher for you high POV. The inclusion of the man makes the scene a bit vivid. TFS and have a fine week!
Jakab (3867) 2010-02-01 14:02
sure, Greece means not only irreplaceable cultural heritage but also beautiful nature and fun, sometimes on the same place. The cleanness of the water and the play of lights on the bottom is astonishing.
Angshu (56462) 2010-02-02 1:25
The water is so very clear! I like the web design created by the interplayoing ripples on the right side which leads us to the boat. Good perspective creation as well with the pier and like the red circles which are painted along the side...they sure are eye catchers! Technically perfect as always my friend!
clio (27961) 2010-02-02 10:15
Geia sou Dano,

Καλό Σ/Κ και καλό απόγευμα,
