A group of interesting clouds flying over the bay of Alinda at sunset, on their way to the south. In the distance, across the sea, it looks like the coast of Turkey is having the same weather.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely Sunday to all

beautiful nature and really apt title refering to the spactacle we see.
The clouds in combination with so warm and soft light look magnificent here.
Although captured just few days ago,the scene has something warm and relaxing in itself.It reminds me definitely the summer.
Have a nice sunday

Ciao Ourania,gran scelta del momento,con le caldi luci di fine giornata che baciano le case sulla destra e creano il miglior contrasto con questo cielo che dipinge la composizione nella maniera migliore,vedo che c'e' ancora bel tempo da te...qui si gela..ehehe...Buona Domenica,Luciano

una giornata dalla particolare limpidezza, forse anche per il forte vento come lasciano immaginare le onde, ma ottima occasione per cogliere al volo la presenza di queste nuvole che passano velocemente nel cielo lasciando in esso disegni alquanto piacevoli a contrasto con il sole che illumina la scena e con i suoi raggi le rende dimili a batuffoli sospesi in aria.
Ciao e buona domenica.

Very clear view of the bay's opening to the sea, one side with good light upon, while other side shaded by a passing cloud.
Fine shot, sea leveled and good depth.
Have a nice new week,

Hi Ourania, lovely sea view with blue sky decorated with beautiful white clouds, nicely captured in this beautiful photograph. A nice image of a beautiful day, with good sharpness, depth and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

The perfect title for this very appealing composition. There is no question that you were right to allocate so much space to that wonderful sky. I like very much the warm light and colours. Very good clarity. Thanks for sharing; have a good Sunday.

Cette photo brise la rêgle des tiers mais est très belle surtout à cause de l'espace que tu laisses au ciel et aux très beaux nuages. J'aime aussi la luminosité sur les maisons blanches du rivage.

A beautiful sky, one of those that has a sense of movement that I feel I can see. If I look long enough, these do start moving, especially the one in the dead centre. That one actually looks a little like a Yin and Yang symbol rolling playfully along.
So what music do you hear to this? For some reason, I hear Fur Elise :)
All the best

όμορφο το δειλινό επάνω από το νησί με το ζεστό απογευματινό φως να κάνει το κομμάτι της στεριάς τόσο ελκυστικό.Τα σύννεφα επάνω από την θάλασσα και η γραμμή που άφησε το διερχόμενο αεροπλάνο,συμπληρώνουν το σκηνικό.

A beautiful photograph in which, I agree, those glorious clouds really are the "stars of the show"!
A very simple yet appealing composition in which the dark sea beneath certainly makes us look upwards to the beautiful sky. The light is quite low angle and that has helped to illuminate those lovely puffy clouds perfectly as well, of course, as the builings on the headland off to the right.
Beautiful light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Congratulations for this superb landscape with good low light, good framing and beautiful clouds.
holmertz (52694) 2013-12-01 11:18
You have chosen a nice title for this very appealing composition. The clouds really seem engaged in a very joyful performance. It looks like a jet-fighter also danced its way across the sky while protecting the border. There should have been another jet-stream in the background too, since it takes two to tango - or so the cliché goes ;-).

Much better on FB than here !
have a nice sunday evening, all the best

certainly a beautiful ballet performance by the clouds.nicely seen and executed.really like the pov and the light and the proportion of the sky:water
mirosu (16227) 2013-12-01 20:24
This is a substantial picture of the pre-sunset sky, there are so many lovely and interesting elements that make it spectacular. I like very much the composition and the fascinating colors and patterns spreading across the sky. Most wonderful I find the nicely lit clouds and the lighthouse in BG as well as the excellent light reflections on sea water. The dark steel blue water anchors the composition and the distant bright mountains add nice hue to the scene. The atmosphere is really suggestive. Well done my friend.
Wish you a very nice week.

So, this is what the Aegean looks like in late November. I have studied Google maps and your photo and concluded that the Turkish coast visible from here should be the vicinity of Didyma, am I right?
I love the evening hues reflecting off of the eastern shore.
Cricri (119457) 2013-12-01 23:21
Un très joli titre comme une poésie, bel effet en 3 D des nuages, la lumière sur les maisons et ce grand espace laisser a la mer, très belle réalisation

Hi Ourania ,
I love big sky's and your presentation here is lovely with the cotton wool like clouds just hanging above the bay. Nice low horizon and the light shining on the right hand side of the bay is delightful.
jhm (152874) 2013-12-02 2:58
This type clouds get we almost always between cold and warm water, clouds out of the first convergence zone.
Nice depth and perspective picture.
Very well composition, good presentation too. TFS.
abmdsudi (54055) 2013-12-02 6:58
A picture with excellent compo making the cloud formation as main interest, timely shot packed with details in excellent rich colors, depth and contrast. Of particular interest is the warm light which adds the lovely finishing touch. A expressive shot beautifully taken in every way. Well done, TFS
Kielia (24077) 2013-12-02 7:01
you are presenting a very fascinating sky indeed. You have chosen an excellent POV and it seems as if the clouds are moving very fast. I also like the natural colors and the pleasant light. A great impression of this already well known seascape. My compliments!
ChrisJ (113951) 2013-12-02 10:40
I love the 'big sky' here and the repetition ofthe cloud patterns. Good sharpness and well composed with the low horizon line. Nice contrast between the well lit promontory at right juxtaposed against the darker shadowed headland at left. Tfs!

Kalismera dera Ourania
I was concient of the beaty of clouds after posting and reading notes in TE
And yes, here they seem to be part of a ballet, a white one like the the Swam Lake
Wewll composed capture but still the protagonist are the dancers ( clouds)
Interesting to see Turkey from this POV, thanks for the information
May be you and Chris can comunicate with clouds of fire like the american indians
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-12-02 20:38

subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2013-12-02 23:36
this is the example of the beauty in simplicity. You composed it nicely with fine wide frame. The light is superb. Like the floated clouds in the top. Excellent one. Tfs.
After some busy working days I am back here again. For the photographic journey... For you and with you...
