View from above of this cute and colourful port of the fish village Mandrakia, early in the morning,about 10:οοo'clock.
Mandrakia,are a fish village with a small beach of almost 150 meters with dark grey pebble and visitors are impressed with its traditional color. Here you see the "sirmata" that are small lodges,in front of the little harbor,in which the boats are drawn from the sea and placed in during the Winter. A lot of fishermen, the summer period change "sirmata" in rural residences.
Τα Μανδράκια,είναι ένα ψαροχώρι με μια μικρή παραλία σχεδόν 150 μέτρων με σκούρο γκρι βότσαλο και εντυπωσιάζει τον επισκέπτη με το παραδοσιακό του χρώμα. Εδώ βλέπετε τα «σύρματα» δηλαδή τα μικρά σπιτάκια, μπροστά στο λιμανάκι, μέσα στα οποία φυλάσσονται οι βάρκες το χειμώνα. Πολλοί ψαράδες, την καλοκαιρινή περίοδο μετατρέπουν τα «σύρματα» σε εξοχική κατοικία.

Excellent contrast and presentation,

Excellent point of view,
dkmurphys (36759) 2010-08-25 7:56
I like also this different view of the port. It sure is a very spectacular place. Also those garages caved in stone are incredible. Nice scene, well seen.
npecanhuk (53889) 2010-08-25 8:05
Very beautiful place and very attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, dof, colors, pp, contrasts, horizontal format and, above all, composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats!
ikeharel (37280) 2010-08-25 8:22
A good parking area for the fishing boats...
Very fine outlines in the carved rocks - made by wind and sea-water, nature's creations.
adramad (27550) 2010-08-25 8:28
Another wonderful image that shows us this beautiful place, those curious constructions that seem carved into the rock and used to store boats, is the first time I see him, wonderful idea.
The place looks pretty barren beauty of the sea pear compensates for the lack of trees along its shores.
Beautiful light and color.
Have a nice evening. Best regards.
paololg (31442) 2010-08-25 9:12
Ciao dear Danos,
Pleasant image of this small but nice harbor, that inspires tranquilliy and life to contact with the nature and the sea. Very beautiful the colors and the transparency of the water. Excellent!
Ciao, have a nice evening!
josepmarin (55023) 2010-08-25 9:20
The boats tied in this small port give us a nice sensation of calmness and tranquility.
The rocky coast is very nice, and these "sirmatas" add a touch of very interesting color. Your note explains to us perfectly its use by the fishermen, and completes a great work.
I like the luminosity and the beautiful colors of the photo.
One excellent work, my friend.
ciakgiak (30329) 2010-08-25 9:34
molto bella la vista di queste barche schierate in FG, il posto sembra davvero bello, la luce ed i colori hanno una resa perfetta grazie alla qualità alla quale ci hai abituati. Una magnifica immagine molto ben composta.
Un carissimo abbraccio

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Αυτά τα μικρά λιμανάκια με τους ατομικούς στεγασμένους χώρους στάθμευσης που υπάρχουν στη Μήλο είναι πανέμορφα, ωραία χρώματα και ατμόσφαιρα που μας κάνει να αναπολούμε τις πρόσφατες διακοπές μας.
Καλό σου βράδυ, Βασίλης.
yedirenk (11242) 2010-08-25 12:18
Hi dear Danos,
what a wonderful place..colored little boats,emerald and calm sea and warm light are eye catcher..very nice ambiance..TFS
clio (27955) 2010-08-25 13:04
If I could, I shall take the plane and I shall return to Milos. You found a wonderful unusual and original point of view. What a paradise! An absolute harmony between people, the sea and the Earth, ευχαριστώ!
Budapestman (82620) 2010-08-25 13:34
a beautiful peaceful impression with attractive composition and colours, I like the coloured boats and the atmosphere of the photo, great view, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!
pierrefonds (48335) 2010-08-25 16:42
The point of view is sending my eyes toward the mountain which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the boats and of the boathouses. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
edge (6068) 2010-08-25 20:06
Hello Danos, This is probably the best shot I have looked at this evening. Great choice for posting. The color is magnificent with the boats of all colors aligned and moored as if it was a military order. Fine color for the water with the view of it all the way to the bend in the shot. As I have said and believed many times, boats and water are always a winner. Finally the rock formations in the front and back give ample depth and character to the shot. Very well done. Regards, Roger.
shevchenko (18243) 2010-08-25 20:33
As mentioned in your note it is a small beach, the photo is in good pov to show a narrow corner, clear to show the geographical feature that dominated with rocks, attractive colourful view in a sunny day, thanks for sharing.
siamesa (27449) 2010-08-25 21:26
It's a marvelous composition with high quality and a perfect capture.Very attractive colors. Congrats and TFS

Hello Danos! Superb work. Nice boats, excellent town, very fine colours, very good brightness and saturation. Good exposure. Perfect sharpness. Well done!
delpeoples (44904) 2010-08-26 1:07
Geia sou dear Danos, I love this series of photos. Fishing villages to me are so characteristic and very typical of life on the Mediterranean. The coloured boats are beautiful, again so characteristic and remind me of those in Sicilia. And of course the emerald water is unmistakable with the rocky coves and inlets. Such a fantastic place, thanks for bringing us here. Warm regards, Lisa
Longroute (19390) 2010-08-26 1:50
if I don't remember wrong you have posted other photos of this mandrakia from a higher pov. Here I like very much the row of boats in foreground which are very fine subjects with their colours and shapes and which create a diagonal. But also the colours and textures of the sea are splendid and the sight of the hill and rocks at right. It's a very plastic photo with a great sense of depth and furthermore the early morning light gives a wonderful atmosphere.
One of your best -IMO- about this subject.
rodgerg (55767) 2010-08-26 7:37
An another superb place with a veray pleasant light nad the alignments of small boats in the Fg which give a very good graphic effect. Details, vived colors nad contrasts very well collected.
Have a nice evening,
anokutan (15097) 2010-08-26 7:48
Excellent contrast and presentation,good colors and sharpness.
Royaldevon (17791) 2010-08-26 7:52
Another fine photograph revealing the calm and picturesque nature of a Greek fishing village.
Your pov, creating a diagonal line with the moored boats, gives a natural left/right progression across the frame.
Are those boat houses, in the b/g, mirroring the line of the boats?
A sharp exposure with fine details.
My warmest regards,
Atousa (7097) 2010-08-26 8:04
Seems to be a good n peaceful place for vacation.. I like the pov n natural colors of the shot.. well composed with the boats in front of the little harbor which provides good sense of depth as well.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
subhendu_bagchi (16590) 2010-08-26 10:50
excellent view and you captured it very well. The boats in foreground and those sirmatas are superb in this nice coloured water and the mountains act as an excellent background to your shot. A great work. Tfs.
Fis2 (73084) 2010-08-26 12:50
Nicely place and interesting landscape.
Good frame and colors.
jemaflor (68867) 2010-08-26 13:13
well composed with these boats in the fg, good light and sharpness for your photo, pleasant little harbour among these rocks.
gunbud (34052) 2010-08-26 17:22
What a charming little harbor you have captured here.
Love the neatly moored wooden boats and how they make such a lovely reflection in the cleear turquois sea.
The rocky hills make an ideal backdrop for this beautiful coastal scene.
AKITA (15125) 2010-08-26 19:41
a beautiful view shot of pretty little port,
regularly lined various boats are impressive,
the light and the water are very clear,

You're a real expert on them.
Everything is beautiful and harmonious.
A lot of nice details.

Sharp and clean work

molto particolare questo scorcio con la fila di barche colorate in FG.
Inquadratura ampia sul porticciolo che mette in luce la bellezza del luogo.
prabut (3548) 2010-08-27 3:42
Nice composition with the boat you set diagonally. The picturesque harbor surrounded by cliffs. Good light and nice clean colors.
Have a nice day.
jafadabret (56497) 2010-08-27 9:41
J'aime cette atmosphère de petit port de pêche traditionnel. Les petites barques attendent sagement les pêcheurs bien abritées dans ce port.
patdeph (35738) 2010-08-27 10:34
one more lovely small harbour,where the rocks and the lear water give a great charm,as the small and colorful boats!Magnificent!
papagolf21 (76515) 2010-08-28 4:30
Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Le charme opère toujours autant avec ce petit port formant une crique à l'abri du vent.
J'aime ces petites embarcations qui se balancent au gré du vent.
La lumière dispensée est également parfaitement mise en valeur.
pajaran (36190) 2010-08-28 7:15
Vrlo interesantno i lepo mesto ...
Lepa uvala sa ribarskim camcima i grazama za cuvanje.

jhm (122410) 2010-08-28 7:26
Splendid vieuw about the small boats of the fishers in the port.
Excellent perspective and depth image.
Lovely reflections, soft colors, sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
Giorgio (11263) 2010-08-28 8:01

It's really a typical harbour, I like the framing with the boats in the foreground, well taken.

Ahh..Greek islands in the morning, i love it! It's a great feeling to walk along the fishing piers in the early morning. Smell the sea, feel the warm sunlight to the skin and see the small picturesque harbours... You have choosen and fine Pov, fine light and colors, well done.
BWJ (3022) 2010-08-31 17:45
This is a peaceful place with a nice summer atmosphere. The colors and details are beautiful. Your POV is excellent. The “sirmatas” are a good idea. I had never seen them before. You taught me something new with your picture and note.
axiotea (21647) 2010-08-31 23:07
Geia sou Danos
10 am is not so early morning ;)
An interesting view on the little harbour and its rocky surroundings. Many boats which seem to be empty...I like the water texture and its colour tones.
Have a nice day
pablominto (53744) 2010-08-31 23:11
The image conveys a fine maritime feeling, with this scene a bit off the tourist track!
Seems like a well sheltered harbour for the fishing boats, at the moment resting ashore...
A good documentary of the life of the fishermen..!
mafegan (8618) 2010-09-01 4:47
The water is so clear and the boats so colourful. A well balanced composition. You live in a most beautiful part of this world. Tfs, Marlene
eldancer1 (17008) 2010-09-01 10:19
So beautiful and peaceful looking place. . .I want to move there. Very nice composition, the spacing of the boats and colorful doors. Great colors. Well done, tfs.

Angshu (51174) 2010-09-06 8:54
Like the repeating pattern of the boats, which have parked themselves on clear water..so clear that we can see the bottom of the sea. Framing & compo is good & well taken picture in good light!
Vasa (15970) 2010-09-13 13:28
with your gallery, Greece is the most attractive country. Many tourists from Serbia come back from Greece very content. Let's say that the basket is not the best terrain for friendship...
This motif from Mandrakia is so romantic. Friendly,
