A winter evening view from the beach of Ayia Marina towards the town and the neighbourhood of Ayia Paraskevi, which lies around the church standing on the slope.

Winter in Southeast Europe. There are still major openings in the cloud cover, the setting sun colours the clouds beautifully and we see a pretty light on the upper part of the hill. A winter that I would not find too unpleasant :)
Best regards, Paul

The colours and light make this view special. The large nearest buildings don't seem to be in a very good shape but their darker colours make them contrast very nicely with the white houses dominating the hillside.The faded yellow and orange paint of the building to the right gives it a certain beauty. The hillside creates one fine diagonal and ther's another one made by the seashore.

Hello Ourania ,
May be not the way we imagine the greek islands (many of us visit them at the warm and sunny season) , so it is interesting to show us this beautiful view of the village with a strong winter atmosphere .

Not surprising, the place get diff. colors through the seasons and time of a day when taken.
Beautiful ambiance that tells much of the winter time on the island - looks as the houses "dressed" with mild and dim colors.
Also, the water mostly reflected the cloudy sky aloft.
Nice taken a different dusky and different sight.

A fine photo of this village. Well composed shot with fine colours and good light management. The yellow building provides a nice colour contrast to the scene. Very nice work! Thanks.
Have a nice week.
Best regard, Erling

just love these delicate pinkish hues,which create so lovely and peaceful mood of the scene.The location of this town on so steep slopes,its architecture and finally FG with this small bay make this view truly magnificent.
Another excellently considered and taken with attention for all details composition from Leros!
The scene has its own,unique mood you captured and convey so well here.
Wish You a nice evening

Une belle présentation verticale du village pris a en fin de journée, tout en douceur dans la lumière et les reflets, très jolie présentation
Romano46 (18472) 2013-12-09 11:55
Una composizione perfetta ed una luce rosata che incanta abbracciando la parte alta del borgo e lasciando che il mare giorga livido fino alla riva.
Uno splendido contrasto inquadrato in maniera perfetta.
Ciao e buona serata

Una foto molto piacevole, forse una delle tue migliore. Il mare d' argento 'e come un sogno e mi piace come hai esalto la profondita' con il taglio verticale. I colori delle cassette sono ben regulate and l' immagine 'e nitidissima e ben composta. Complimenti.

Just out of curiosity, has it ever snowed in Leros? What kind of heating system is popular, do you get by with space heaters or is anything more substantial needed?
Nice to see the less touristy season, the real Leros.
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-12-09 22:34
Great view of the houses on the slope and facing fading daylights. A carefully constructed composition and a delight to view.Well composed photo. TFS.

Beautiful capture with that small town on vertical pov. Nice mood, lovely place.
Have a great day.

another nice view described the beauty of this place. Superb use of light. Great clarity. Like the perspective created here. The water is looking great with a bit reflection. Tfs.

The church really is the focal point of this town, and I love how the town is spread across the mountain side like this. As a fairly flat country, Ireland doesnt see this style of urban development, so always a pleasure to see captures like this of it. I recognize that kind of wintry sky too, the reddish hue to the clouds is beautiful and creates a very active backdrop.
Lovely composition, the creation of the triangle of land between sea and sky is perfectly done.
All the best
jhm (152860) 2013-12-10 3:02
The colours and light make this view special.
I like it complete village on these slope of the mountain. as a lovely presentation
I see that you took these picture in the late winter.
A nice composition, lovely colours, sharpness makes everything nice.
Very well done, TFS.
snunney (98944) 2013-12-10 5:29
I imagine it is till relatively mild despite the wintry look. I like the point of view with the dominating church making a fine focal point. Also, the soft light and colours.
gojo (1769) 2013-12-10 9:36
Been away for a while.... Nice to see You images again. This is truly beautiful. The light gives it a fine athmosphere.
brianmcc (6219) 2013-12-10 11:30
this is a lovely coastal image. the houses and buildings all tightly packed together create a lovely scene. the colours are very natural and appealing.

Ciao Ourania,composizione molto ricca con le magiche luci della sera che hai bilanciato alla perfezione,une bella verticale sotto il tipico cielo della sera.Buona serata! Luciano
Gigidusud (21147) 2013-12-10 14:54
Bellissimo villaggio tipico nella luce invernale. Mi piace il cielo nuvolose, il taglio verticale e il colore argento del mare. Complimenti!
Un caro saluto,
npecanhuk (75422) 2013-12-10 15:08
A different mood here, but the same beauty and attractiveness!
Another interesting and eye-catching picture too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,

Hola dear Ourania
As aspect of Winter are the soft colors of the sky and the rays of sun on the village, creating contrast with the green vegetation
Like the way you managed to include the church and some houses at the back but more than all the great diference between the two houses on the other side of the beach
Sucha nice place with an abandoned one, must be some history behind it
serp2000 (44177) 2013-12-11 2:59
Hi, Ourania, my neighbor today,
I saw your latest post, but this view is more informative for me. Another confirmation of the winter deep slumber of Nature. Fine composition, I like this stripe of village between the sky and the water.
mirosu (16227) 2013-12-11 4:36
This is excellently captured small township from very well selected viewpoint. The view from lover angle makes the houses and the church in the top majestic and dominant. The light is perfect, the contrast against sky excellent and the light reflections add nice hue to the scene. Very well done.
Silvio1953 (143049) 2013-12-11 10:30
Ciao Ourania, affascinante anche d'inverno la tua bella isola, bel taglio verticale, magnifico cielo, brava, ciao Silvio
abmdsudi (54053) 2013-12-13 22:23
A fine depiction of wintery in the unfavorable bleak low light weather but the touch of warm tones on the slope is lovely. It's so well composed displaying the reality in true colours, well detailed and great depth. This adds to the greyish atmosphere in the surrounding with excellent bits of bright colours to add some interest. Well done.
jcpix (13930) 2013-12-15 12:58
The title made me smile, as I too have the luxury of experiencing mild winters...still plenty warm and generally full of sun. :) Speaking of the sun, its light being projected onto the upper portion of this village and highlighting the clouds above is just sublime. It has really set a soothing and beautiful tone to accompany this composition. Great textures and controlled light from top to bottom, everything appears to be in fine form. Thanks for sharing the moment and view. Have a nice week ahead.

Για σου Ουρανία
είναι τόσο ήρεμη η θάλασσα που κανείς δεν μπορεί
να καταλάβει ότι το τοπίο είναι χειμερινο
εχει μια καταπληκτική ηρεμία που με ευχαριστεί
καλό σου βράδυ

The kind of shot which gives the wish to come and visit this place.
Good composition in the vertical frame, following the climb of the city over the hill.
adores (45329) 2013-12-20 16:19
A very good pov! The view is really nice with the little church at the top and I like this grey day and winter atmosphere. It was also a good idea to include this diagonal of land in foreground.
