This picturesque old rowing boat sits atop the roof of a house on the edge of the caldera in the town of Thira on the island of Santorini, Greece. It has graced this particular rooftop for many years and looking at various postings on TE, seems to be added to or re-positioned every few tourist seasons.

I like your shots from Greece especially when posted in winter !
What colors and luminosity again and a superb contrast between blue, sea and sky, with the white house
Would not be as good if the piece of wood on the ground was anything else than blue

An image that makes one think that it is time to start planning the summer holidays:-) You have framed the shot very well, making judicious use of the vertical format. I like very much the contrast between the graphical elements in the bottom part of the image and the seascape beyond. Very pleasantly lit with superb colours and sharpness. Have a pleasant weekend.

One of your wonderful pictures taken in the Greek Islands!!!
Here, special regards to the vertical format, chosen pov, composition and management of light! Colors are gorgeous too!
Three types of vessels here: the cruiser, the sailing ship and that old boat! Interesting!
TFS - congrats,

Fun subject with this old wood boat lost far away from the sea we could see in bakcground. And it is this composition with a large part given to the sea which is making the interest of the shot, evidencing how it is so strange.

Great exposure, you've managed to capture highlighted and shadow details in balance. Love the vertical composition as it leads the eye out to sea. Nice, sharp detail...well done again!
Happy New Year,

Perfect POV and a great quality. The composition is surely fantastic. Well done!

Very original photo, all elements make a kind of "stil life" and perfect composition, clear and thought out

che magnifica profondità e che colori splendidi.
Mi piace molto questa luce che mette in risalto tutti i soggetti che compongono questa bellissima immagine.

this is a superb picture, the whites and blues contrast very nicely. i love the inclusion and positioning of the boat, it is so full of character and very attractive. the background scenery is also a wonderful feature of the image with the views overlooking the sea.
have a lovely weekend,

une image de toute beauté avec une excellent construction
Merci de ce partage

Well composed, layered shot, Brian. The clarity is sharp as far out as the eye can see, and that adds a lot to the shot, with some beautiful soft light falling on the land in far BG. Up close, you captured the unique nature of this tourist attraction well. I do like that shots that have appeared multiple times on TE, though I haven't yet see any others of this boat; it's interesting to see the take multiple people have had on the same subject. Thanks for adding yours.

Hi Brian, great image from this iconic island. Inclusion of the island and cruise ship work well creating good depth. I wonder about the inclusion of the textured wall in the FG though - perhaps a little distracting? cheers, Steve
jjcordier (62344) 2013-01-04 21:42
Ce bateau a une position curieuse sur ce toit. C'est un élément d'intérêt supplémentaire à ton excellente composition en bleu et blanc. Bravo pour la parfaite maitrise de l'exposition. Lumière et couleurs au top.

Very nice picture, with great colors and a good copmposition...

Bom ano de 2013
janneman (2202) 2013-01-05 6:43
I like the idea of the old boat on the white rooftop.
the blues are beautiful. The cruise ship in the same dioganal position as the rowingboat makes the compostion complete!
SnapRJW (18752) 2013-01-05 7:54
Hello Brian - The 'stranded' boat seem to look out over the water and watch the other vessels cross the waters. I like the way the positioning of the little boat connects with the sea and its former life! Nicely seen and a bright summery shot for those living in winter weather. Enjoy your weekend. Rosemary

Wow! this is too much Brian! I do not know what to say....No comment!
barni (15745) 2013-01-05 12:12
Superbe vue. La vielle barque ajoute un excellent point d'acroche à l'image.
dta (51454) 2013-01-05 12:14
Hello Brian ,
A fine decoratio that provides a splendid subject for the photographer . As usual , your capture is perfect , with exquisite sharpness , great DOF , nice shades and subtile tonalities of white . The contrast with the blue sea and the sky are superb , too .
kasianowak (2255) 2013-01-06 1:50
Excellent shot. Quintessential Santorini seascape but a bit different from the typical "white church on blue background" one. Great choice of subject, the boat adds something very special to the image.
Enjoy your Sunday!
macjake (39235) 2013-01-06 13:02
always great to see whats new and interesting in your gallery :)
its very hard to produce a high quality photo with such large amounts of white - but here the white isn't overexposed at all.
another wicked shot from your trip to Greece.
speedymanu (3148) 2013-01-07 9:01
I like the incongruity of this boat sitting on top of that roof' it gives a new perspective to this breathtaking panorama. The curves in the foreground add a feeling of depth and a bit of sensuality. Finally, I also think that the presence of the cruise ship and the yacht provide areal nice echo to this old wreck.
Have a nice day,
eldancer1 (17064) 2013-01-08 9:18
Very unusual place for a rowboat! Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with sharp details. Love the colors. Very well done, tfs.

Une image partager entre le bleu et le blanc, chacun son bateau, l'un sur la mer et la barque splendide super bien, la lumière, les couleurs et la composition sont magnifiques

Not directly a place where you expect a boat
and that is a nice extra. Quality is as
