My favourite (i.e. most photographed) boat was going into the harbour of Ayia Marina while I was going home too, in the opposite direction. There was a new arrangement of low clouds but we could still see Turkey in the distance.
Thank you for visiting

questo genere di foto mi piace molto perchè riflette nella sua estrema semplicità la vita di tutti i giorni nella quale esiste la normalità
La stessa ripresa senza ricerca di inutili effetti riflette in pieno questo sentimento.
E' la ripresa di un ritorno a casa dopo una giornata passata sul mare e si possono immaginare i sentimenti degli uomoni a bordo del peschereccio che già pregustrano il sedere attorno ad un tavolo circondati dai propri affetti familiari.
Questa a mio parere è vera poesia e in questa foto c'è tutta.
Ciao, buona serata e buon inizio di settimana

Must say I am a bit envy of the scenery you see on your daily walk home, Ourania, I see mostly grey houses in town...
Fine clear shot, with Turkey not in a great distance on the horizon.
Living in a small island you presumably know all the local people and the names of the boats.

Υπέροχη φωτογραφία από έναν όμορφο τόπο!
Τα χρώματα, και το τοπίο γαληνεύουν την ψυχή!
Μια Ελλάδα μακριά από την ασχήμια της μνημονιακής καθημερινότητας!
Λιτή και απέριτη ομορφιά από μια ευλογημένη κατά τα άλλα χώρα!!!
Να περνάς καλά και να είσαι πάντα δυνατή!

I get a feeling that this day had been rather cloudy, maybe even with some rain, but now in the evening the sky is getting clearer. As darkness is about to fall the sky still has a touch of pink or orange that has created a cosy and pleasant atmosphere. The sea is quiet and the fishermen (?) hopefully had a good day at work. Hopefully you were also satisfied with the day, having taught your students some new pieces of English grammar, and happy to end the day with a shot like this. I enjoy the inclusion of the flower-pot standing on the wall to the right. It's really very small (about the size of the boat) but is a very important part of the composition.

A fine shot containing so many elements of nature, the sea, the sky, the clouds, the hills, superb!
I love the diffused light from the sky even though sun is below the horizon it seems. It is magical.
The boat and the hint that their are passengers on it adds life to your photo.
A well captured beautiful scenery. Thanks for sharing.

A lovely view of an elegant boat. All the boats here a made of fiberglass (or similar synthetic material) with oversized engines. Now, I understand the use of synthetic material, supposedly, they are easier to maintain. But why do they need to be that fast? Why are people in such a hurry? I miss the graceful movements of old world boats.

Beauty in simplicity. A nice composition here. Those subdue colours are nice. I enjoyed the serenity and calmness of this place. Very well presentation indeed.

Another excellent photo. Wonderful mood and composition with some lovely and fascinating waterscape showing the beautifully balanced colours of the place with the excellent water reflection just pulling you right in there. Wonderful contrasts too with all those little bright colour of the sky in the backdrop. I think the shimmering steel water color gives a real punch to the image A fine peaceful shot. The boat is very well placed in the frame. Congrats.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
όμορφη παρουσίαση του δειλινού με την φαρόβαρκα να γυρίζει στο λιμάνι και την ασφάλειά της.Οι δυό 'μύτες' τις στεριάς μου μπαίνουν στη θάλασσα δημιουργούν της αίσθηση του βάθους με την ηρεμία να είναι απλωμένη παντού.

A very pleasant view to take in on your way home from work. The image is well composed with the ferry nicely counterbalanced by the corner of the quayside. I like the low light and very peaceful atmosphere. Very pleasant understated colours.

This is a beautiful scene, and more special that it contains your own favorite boat :) The clouds have a strange appearance, it reminds me a little of an atlas of the world! Its created beautiful colors. Amazing that you can stand here and see the coast of Turkey too, I never realized they were so close! The plant pot on the right hand side stands out nicely too!
All the best

Une belle impression de calme dans cette composition. Une impression de départ aussi à la fin de la journée. Une impression de solitude aussi. Une image qui raconte une histoire.
Cricri (101397) 2013-12-17 6:26
Quel beau moment d'assister a ce spectacle tout en rentrant chez soi, il règne un calme certain, j'aime la présence du bateau sur cette mer calme, entre un morceau de montagne, le village et le coin sombre sur le coin de l'image, bonne préservation des couleurs et de la lumière du moment
krzychu30 (15332) 2013-12-17 10:12
beautiful and having special,kind of nostalgic feeling scene!
I like the composition with the lonely boat,but also this moody light,which helps you to create so charming atmosphere of the scene.
Of course the clouds are also important part of the whole composition,but for me the most captivating thing is the light I´ve already mentioned.
Have a nice evening

Ciao Ourania, bella e rilassante, si respira atmosfera di pace e tranquillità in questa tua bellissima foto dai delicati colori, bravissima, ciao Silvio

Hola dear Ourania
Simple and creative composition with the boat returning home in a so quiet sea that reflects the pink cloudes
But the touch of creativity, a smart one, is given by the pot with the flower, a good way to end the day
Can you send some smoke greetings to Chris, working in Turkey?
About architecture, old houses in old times (only 400 years ago) were white , now owners like to add some color around windows and doors, white ones remainds but few
Have a good day ahead

pleasant calm atmosphere is in this image. Good composition with the alone boat on sea. Photo is well composed and done.
Have a nice evening.
