A fragment of the harbour of Lakki, the main part of Leros, to the south west of the island.
[Lakki] is secure and safe and is the largest natural harbor in the Mediterranean. It has modern port facilities and two units for servicing yachts. It looks like a huge lake, with an open space of only 400metres towards the sea. This natural characteristic was the reason why it was called Porto Lago (port-lake) by the Italians and was chosen as a naval base.
Thank you for visiting

Blue colors parted with white threaded-wave on the reflection.
Lovely. and pleasent to look at.

A fantastic minimalistic composition. The contrasts that the reflections make with the water is really eye catching.
What you lack in subject matter..you skillfully makeup with colors and contrasts. Excellent and thanks for sharing.

This is like ruffles around a collar, very nice.
I am glad there was no power outage on your island. Today, we are experiencing here the coldest day of the year (2013). The kids were going to go to an Awana meeting but power was out at the church and it got cancelled. Right now it is 19° F (-7° C) and it is supposed to go down to 12° F (-11° C).

For me it´s like a dive into our dreams.
Beautiful,evocative and definitely working on all our senses!
Love the outcome of your work-pure imaginary!
No more words are needed-all we need is to enjoy this scene.
Wish You a nice day

beautiful work, this reminds me of somebody having dipped a canvass in deep rich paint, and skilfully using the brush to mix the colors together. Just goes to show that we'll never beat nature for superior works of art!
All the best

Compared to similar reflections theswe are quite orderly, lined up in distict elongated areas, with the side of the boat acting as a similar area. The white zig-zagging part is made very attractive by he dark edges. The rope is a reminder of what we are looking at, for those who may have been in doubt.
Kind regards, have a nice weekend.

Hi dear Ourania
Ya this is agin your world but blue/white refcction is very rare and fresh to see for me. So tasetful color touch in the perfect framework is very nice to observe as usual.
All the best and have a good Saturday! Takero from cold Tokyo

Kalispera querida Ourania
Just read what you said about the WS and quite agree with you, the only real element is the rope, that in a sense, anchor the capture at the reality
Your sense of art and creativity is present in the zigzag lin, adding in a way a sense of mouvement
Well obtained contrast, enjoy the weekend

We get almost a aquarelle with the white blue lively colours.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Για σου Ουρανία
καταπληκτική παρουσίαση σαν αληθινή ακουαρέλα
ο ζωγράφος πήρε χρώματα από την παλέτα του
και δημιούργησε με μπλε φόντο ενα φανταστικό
εάν δεν υπήρχε τίτλος πάνω από την φωτογραφία
ούτε καισημειώσεις κανείς δεν θα μπορούσε
να καταλάβει ότι πρόκειται για φωτογραφία
μπράβο και καλό βράδυ

What a superb dreamy abstract reflection reminds me of a water colour in the rain, A veritable artist's palette of colours but thought for a minute I'd overdosed on the blues! Simple but really effective arty stuff it seems to have more painterly qualities. This is very well done and would look wonderful printed large on art paper I would imagine..., Congrats

Well seen these details to present in a close up shot, a result like a painting, beautiful brightness and tones.

Another great reflection! Just beautiful, the reflection and the combination of colours! Beautiful composition!

You have captured a highly aesthetically distorted reflection in the seawater. Excellent presentation of colors and atmosphere of the harbor of Lakki!
Best regards and a happy New Year!
