Strolling in the morning in the narrow roads of Artemonas village i saw beautiful countryards like this one.
I could not resist to the sight and i 'have stolen' the privacy of the owners,fortunately everything were closed.
This village was named after the goddess Artemis, one of the twelve Greek Gods of Olympus. In the same area, where the church Panagia of Kochis is built, during the ancient period existed a temple dedicated to Artemis. The main road that leads to Artemonas covers all the North side of the island, ending at Herronissos. Artemonas is characterized as one of the quietest and ideal places of the island for vacation. The wonderful view, the graphic alleys, the cozy taverns combined with the ideal climate and excellent touristic substructure compose a unique option for your accommodation in Sifnos.

it´s not only cute,it´s really marvelous and thanks to your excellent presentation we realize about its beauty and charm immediately.The scene is nicely composed,but for me the most attractive thing about it are definitely these vivid colors and so fabulous contrast between them.
Have a nice day

Hi Danos. White buildings, blue sky, flowering shrubs. You are a true ambassador of your homeland. Your photographic forays show the beautiful side of Greece. Today's photo is a good example.
papagolf21 (109276) 2013-04-15 0:49
Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Plaisir toujours renouvelé à travers vos prises de vue.
C'est bien agréable de découvrir des lieux qui présentent un intérêt certain.
Très belle mise en image.
jmdias (68661) 2013-04-15 2:35
yes, it is a very beautiful place. I liked the special light you got here showing the colors and contrasts in a perfect way. the framing is perfect too. TFS.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-04-15 3:00
una splendida casa nella quale tutti noi gradiremmo passare le vacanze, tra l'azzurro del cielo ed il profumo dei fiori.
Se poi siamo a due passi dal mare meglio ancora.
A parte gli schjerzi una ottima foto ricca di nitidezza e ben composta.
Ciao e buona giornata
jacquest (19047) 2013-04-15 3:47
The distance on the pavement gives deepness and the grre door ans shutters make a good contrast over the white surfaces. The image is well framed by the red flowers and I like the rows of potted plants. Excellent light, colors and sharpness.
Fis2 (106364) 2013-04-15 4:01
Wonderful courtyard, nicely place.
Good frame and colors.
This place has climate.
Have a nice afternoon
pierrefonds (71117) 2013-04-15 4:27
The length of the courtyard is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the house. The white walls are making the green colour to stands out. Have a nice day.
ikeharel (78289) 2013-04-15 6:17
This is really a nice villa entrance view, the white contrast well with green and red flowers on the tree.
Fine clarity and depth along.
cornejo (46754) 2013-04-15 6:45
Hello Danos, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting composition in the beautiful courtyard, beautifully captured in this interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Noel_Byrne (33628) 2013-04-15 7:00
I can really see why you wanted to capture this moment, what a beautiful building. Is this somebodys home? If so wow, what a place to wake up in every day :) I am a huge fan of the white finish on these buildings against the blue sky, but teh courtyard adds so much. Wonderful place and capture, thanks for sharing.
All the best
mohammad_H (10072) 2013-04-15 7:24
Beautiful flowers growing in the foreground and blue sky in the background
Good sharpness and beautiful colors, beautiful view
kato (11630) 2013-04-15 9:06
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see lovely house with white wall and green door/window-frame and cute courtyard on which the bowl containing a flower was placed and the green plant with red flower which grows luxuriantly in the wall case. The whole is balanced and harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.
amaryllis (37039) 2013-04-15 9:21
j'aimerai bien en faire mon petit nid de cette maison blanche aux volets verts avec cette petite cour, de belles fleurs, le soleil et la mer qui ne doit pas être très loin
ourania (51079) 2013-04-15 9:28
ένα πολύ όμορφο, περιποιημένο και προστατευμένο περιβάλλον, ένα πολύ ευχάριστο καταφύγιο. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ το βάθος και προοπτική που κάνουν τη διαδρομή προς την είσοδο του σπιτιού απολαυστική. Τα χρώματα είναι υπέροχα και το φως επίσης. Υπάρχει εξαιρετική ευκρίνεια σε όλον τον χώρο. Ακόμη και η σκιά έχει μια γλυκύτητα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή εβδομάδα,
adramad (49512) 2013-04-15 9:46
Wow ...... than ideal and charming corner, I love getting lost in these beautiful places, wonderful bright white, with the addition of doors and windows in green and red touch of bouganvillas, is a fabulous composition, which brings me fond memories.
A nice range of colors in the image.
Great management of light and sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Good start to the week.

pretty corner full of shade and flowers! A very inviting place to enjoy good weather, sunshine and maybe a glass of wine:)
Thanks and cheers!

Kugart (1778) 2013-04-15 14:21
Lovely scene of the little courtyard.The contrasting colours and the lighting work really well together.
Gigidusud (21247) 2013-04-15 14:30

gus72 (3719) 2013-04-15 14:48
HI Danos !!
very typical and very pretty.
As always, terracotta pots, plants and contrasting colours.
You took the picture at the appropriate time hence we have more character and textures in the floor pavers.
Very nice photo and well presented.
npecanhuk (78535) 2013-04-15 18:47
I agree with you! It's beautiful and lovely too and so is this picture!
TFS - congrats,

Δάνο μου, δεν ειναι μόνο χαριτωμένη η είσοδος, η όλη φωτογραφία είναι ενα μικρό πανοραμα αρχοντιάς και μη εξεζητημένης κομψότητας!Πανέμορφα χρώματα και πολλά νησιώτικα χαρακτηριστικά!
αν βάλεις ακόμη μια τέτοια φωτιγραφια έρχομαι Ελλάδα..
dkmurphys (64543) 2013-04-15 22:33
A charming courtyard indeed. I like the intimate atmosphere of the place, very attractive.
Have a good day.
tedesse (25135) 2013-04-15 23:13
Wonderful, atmospheric spot, nice place.
Good frame and beautiful colors.
Very well done.
maloutim (9655) 2013-04-16 1:45
A cute courtyard indeed, which you captured beautifully with such happy colours ! Red and green against the immaculate white walls and the perfect blue sky, give an excellent effect.
The frame created by the bougainvillae adds to the beauty and cosy aspect of the place.
Royaldevon (43375) 2013-04-16 6:18
Oh, this is perfect.
It is easy to imagine sitting out here, in the evening, with a group of friends and a glass of wine.
The wall and the flowering shrub create natural lines to guide viewers into the interior of the courtyard where the elements are sharp and well saturated.
My warm regards,
bayno (18344) 2013-04-16 6:31
very elegant patio, the framing is perfect, good light and details, nice colors too...the place perfect for a small vacation...
bona (13739) 2013-04-16 7:36
a lovely place. I like this kind of mood, if I lives in a house I must be like that.
Good colors and light
UlfE (14641) 2013-04-16 7:48
What a superb lighting! I really like the mood. The composition is a also really great and the sharpness could not be better. TFS and have a nice evening!
Graal (103038) 2013-04-16 8:05
courtyard is very nice. I like the architecture, flowers and plants. Beautiful colours. Pleasant peaceful place. Well presentation.
Have a nice evening.
Cricri (125832) 2013-04-16 10:51
Un endroit qui ne manque pas de charme et que les habitants on su mettre en valeur par le feuilles de fleurs rouges, les pots de fleurs, la beauté de la façade, pas de bleu et blanc, voila un changement particulier de ce qu'on a l'habitude de voir, c'est très joli,
mesutilgim (97478) 2013-04-16 12:16
Hello dear Danos,
Another great capture in your gallery.
A scene which warms the hearts of the viewer and evokes the desire for summer days.
TFS and have a nice evening
EstelleJ (921) 2013-04-16 12:32
Just as the title states it - this courtyard is very cute, cozy and inviting, with a perfect lead-in path framed on one side by beautiful flowery vegetation and by flower-pots on the other side. It is wonderful that people in Greece, particularly in Kyklades, take such good care of their houses - always so freshly painted, immaculately clean and white-washed, beautifully adorned by flowers.
You captured this place in very agreeable light - already not too bright, but still sufficient enough for great sharpness and color saturation.
All the best.
fabbs99 (17179) 2013-04-16 21:16
Magnificent house with vivid colors,contrast and superb overall quality of the image.I like the white and green color combination of the house as it enhances the looks of the house.Superb light management and clarity of the shot.Well done.TFS.

raszid62 (18515) 2013-04-17 9:42
Όμορφο, γεμάτο λουλούδια σοκάκι. Οι λευκοί τοίχοι του σπιτιού όμορφα αντίθεση με τα πράσινα και κόκκινα λουλούδια. Και πάνω απ 'όλα ελληνικό γαλάζιο του ουρανού. Πολύ χαριτωμένο εικόνα.
mirosu (16273) 2013-04-17 22:27
Nice tranquil scene in very good light and simple colors. I like the arrangement with the flower tree in front and the excellent green-white-blue color contrast.
fritzi007 (12428) 2013-04-18 13:25
really a beautiful color cocktail, the colors are wonderful! Regards Wolfgang
geoant68 (331) 2013-04-19 6:53
Δάνο γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη και ανταποδοτική η πρωινή βόλτα σου με την φωτογράφιση της αυλής άυτής του Αρτεμώνα.Το πρωινό φως είναι εξαιρετικό με τις γλάστρες και την βοκαμβίλια στα δεξιά να δημιουργούν ένα πολύ ανθρώπινο περιβάλλον,
ines8 (6120) 2013-04-19 13:52
A charming place in a beautiful light, marvelous flowers.
All the best,
jcpix (13948) 2013-04-19 17:13
Lucky people that get to enjoy this entry each and every day, it's beautiful. I'm sure they wouldn't mind having this bit of their property on display, especially when presented so well such as this! Sometimes it's just the simple things like taking an early morning walk that produce some of the best opportunities. Great photo, well balanced in light and composition with some splendid colors...all creating a pleasing image. Tanks for sharing a sneek peek. :) Have a nice weekend.
All the best,
ChrisJ (117825) 2013-04-20 4:30
Nice textural details in the white washed walls especially at the back. Good sharpness and the path adds superb lead in lines and perspective. The bougainvillea flowers add a nice splash of warm colors to contrast against the blue sky. Tfs!
Angshu (56760) 2013-04-23 3:23
Indeed a nice coutyard with the path leading upto the white house. Like the bordering of the path with the plants which adds to the picture. Good light managenment for an attractive picture
nikkitta (17068) 2013-04-23 12:30
A bit late but with time to enjoy this very original stolen capture
What I like the more is that being quite Greek, there is not blue but green and green
Beautiful matching frame
Greetings and TFS

Yes, absolutely very cute courtyard, I want it to be my as I walk home :) Okay, at least I get to enjoy it here for now and it inspire me, maybe I will have one my house one day. I love the way the bougainvillea hanging over like a canopy. Beuatiful composition and great quality photo.
mkamionka (39937) 2013-04-26 11:51
very sweet and charming courtyard indeed. Well taken care off. You have presented it nicely framed and in an interesting light.
jusninasirun (17527) 2013-04-27 19:36
You are right about the beauty of this courtyard. I like the contrasting green door and windows against the white wall. Nicely framed with bougainvillaea in the foreground.
josepmarin (58359) 2013-04-28 4:42
yes, it's truly a cute courtyard, I love the simplicity of lines of this white architecture, and the strong contrast with the green door and windows.
The bougainvillea in foreground is a great aesthetical complement for a gorgeous composition.
A beautiful work, my friend.

Geia sou Danos
You steeled the magic of those elaborate exotic decorations with great control on difficult lighting that nevertheless shows the best of whites as well as subtle details in shaded areas!
Nice various colors too enhance the pleasure!
s_lush (16602) 2013-05-04 22:41
This courtyard looks great being designed so nicely and so aesthetically decorated with ornamental plants. You have captured it with well-balanced composition, favorable morning light, beautiful colors and excellent quality. Perfectly good job!
shevchenko (20548) 2013-08-12 20:58
Good contrast of color in between the white wall with the green windows and door, nice blue sky in a sunny day, beautiful tiling floor and potted plants, good frame to show it all, lovely local houses, distinct photo, good shoot.
Vasa (515) 2013-11-18 16:57
Many nice corners you discovered for us, Danos. For this one from South Aegean I am 1000th visitor. Proud of you and Greece, Danos,
mcmtanyel (29016) 2016-10-15 18:03
You are right, this is a cute courtyard, indeed. I wonder what the view out of the front windows is like.
