Lefkada is the only island which can be visited by car without ferry boats fares by using the floating bridge connecting the island with Akarnia. KTEL buses offer daily services (5 hours) from and to Athens (378 km) and from to Thessaloniki (420 km), everyday bus services (5 hours).
The underwater tunnel of Preveza- Aktio create an easy access to the island from northwest Greece and the Port of Igoumenitsa (100 km) forming a great entrance gate from West and Central Europe.
The operation of the bridge Rio Antirio makes easier the connection of the island with the rest of Greece and with the port of Piraeus (170 km) which is the second great entrance gate from Europe.

bella composizione con la barca a fare da protagonista alla scena.
Montagna in BG a creare un ottimo sfondo.

A lonely boat on calm waters. Beautiful colors, atmosphere and sharpness. Nice view of the mountain in the back.

Good Morning Vasilis,
How good, that you can reach an island by car!
I do like how you have used the mooring rope as a guide to the viewer; it leads straight to the boat on a fine, diagonal line..
I particularly like the details of the water, reflected on the underside of the boat; it is a detail which stirs memories of sunshine, fine weather and warm, Greek seas.
Have a good day,

Γεια σου Βασίλη...
Πολύ ωριαία εικόνα με τα νερά της Λευκάδας..η παρουσίασηs της βάρκα με τον συνδιασμό των όμορφων νερών και των μαγευτικών γιηνων χρωμάτων σε αναγκάζει να την κοιτάξεις..πολύ ωραία και η διαχείρηση του φωτός επίσης.

There is a comfortable balance in this picture with the blue boat in one corner and the impressive hill in the other. The white shoreline separates the colours of sky versus water and the boat also provides a good diagonal line.

The light is well controlled, natural colors are obtained. I like the composition with the boat which gives with clarity, a nice depth. A good and nice picture quality. Bravo.

I like the composition and color contrast. The boat is very well positioned to add depth.
Beautiful place, which is curiously not many people even though it was summer. Very well seen!
