Just returned from Chios island with a lot of memories and photos.I was recharged my batteries for eight days and here i am to upload some of the beauties of the island.
A lot of wind mills are exist in the island close to the sea but these are the landmark of it.The blue tables near the sea are so inviting to sit someone to drink his ouzo,eating his snacks.
Dedicated to maria-v1981.
During the late 19th and the early 20th century a small scale’s industriar infrastructure was developed at Chios. The Second World War, the political changes that took place shortly after, in the Balkans and the eastern Europe - that were traditional markets of the Chian products - as well as the rapid modernization of the industrial output eliminated the Chian industries.
Worked Leathers were the main product of the small industries, located mainly in the northen part of Chios town, called Tambakika (Tanneries). The Mills were part of this industrial infrastructure of the the Tanneries, and four of them, recently renoved, are located about 1 Km northen of the town center, built on a small jetty close to the main buildings of the tanneries.

Une image claire et lumineuse avec ces moulins bien alignés. Celà doit être agréable de déjeuner au bord de l'eau.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ για την αφιέρωση. Μια υπέροχη σύνθεση με τους ανεμόμυλους να στέκουν αριστοκρατικά. Όπως βλέπω τους αναστηλώνουν και μπράβο γιατί είναι ένα από τα πιο χαρακτηριστικά μέρει του νησιού.
Υ.Γ Με γύρισες 2χρόνια πίσω βλέποντας αυτή την εικόνα, πως περνάει ο χρόνος σαν χθές το θυμάμαι.

krzychu30 (15496) 2012-07-09 11:03
beautiful scene and perfectly composed.These old,stone windmills look really delightful located directly at the water.Another highlight of the composition are for me these tables and chairs in blue color,which is so typical for Greek architecture and landscapes.It contrasts well with the rest of composition.Very pleasant composition with great summer mood inviting us to take a seat there and admire this beautiful view.
Have a nice evening

Excellent composition and POV.
Well done.Nice evening
geoant68 (331) 2012-07-09 11:27
πολύ όμορφη σκηνή με τους μύλους να στέκουν τόσο κοντά στην θάλασσα.Μου αρέσει η προοπτική της φωτογραφίας με τα τραπεζάκια από το παρακείμενο ταβερνάκι υποθέτω, να συμπληρώνει το Καλοκαιριάτικο σκηνικό,
Miguel82 (22877) 2012-07-09 12:00
This is a lovely and clean place
I like the stone walls, the blue tables and these amazing 4 mills close to the sea
Sharp picture, fine colors and contrast
sabermonajati (9325) 2012-07-09 12:11
excellent composition from windmill you captured.
Gigidusud (15161) 2012-07-09 12:21
This is a very nice place with the mills on the waterfront.Excellent POV.I like it!
Thanks for sharing.

Lovely picture, a charming composition,splendid blue tones.
PaulVDV (21965) 2012-07-09 13:05
I'd love to sit at one of these blue tables beside the crystal clear sea, enjoy an ouzo and the view of the four windmills.
But you were right to climb a bit higher to take the picture. The inclusion of the blue tables makes the view a lot more enjoyable and the composition more attractive.
Best regards, Paul
rbellemare (2109) 2012-07-09 13:33
Très belle photo. Ces moulins à vent sur le bords de la mer sont irrisistibles. Trés bon cadrage.
Bravo et merci.
siudzi (33083) 2012-07-09 14:37
What a cool place for taking a dinner! Love it! The architecture is superb and has been composed here very smartly. Great composition. Thanks for sharing.
maloutim (9635) 2012-07-09 14:38
Another jewel you are showing us of your country ! Beautiful POV on the terrace by the sea overlooking these old windmills in good state of repair.
I like the little eye-catching boat between the windmills, in the distance.
You are lucky to live in such a marvellous country, and to have all these great places at hand. Good for you to take advantage of all the sites, and sharing them with us.
papera (13952) 2012-07-09 14:50
this image brings back memories of my first holiday in Greece. I chose Chios because it seemed to be the least affected by mass tourism at that time (ten years ago) and I was right. I remember the windmills, the blue sea, the monasteries, the strong sun, the fresh catch of the day from the little restaurant on the beach, the lady would come to me and I would point at what I wanted... :)
what a great holiday. I would love to go back.
jacquest (18577) 2012-07-09 15:37
The POV on those mills is very good. The blue tables are an invitation to relax. The ligh gives good colors and remarqueable sharpness of the mills. I see by the repairs going on , they are well taken care of.
Budapestman (82620) 2012-07-09 15:55
a fascinating atmosphere with beautiful composition and splendid mediterranean lights, the POV is attractive. A superb place to a pleasant dinner, Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hetet kívánok!
Sonata11 (33225) 2012-07-09 20:48
another beautiful picture of wonderful wind mills architecture and nature. Fantastic execution with perfect quality. Perfectly well done.
batalay (35369) 2012-07-09 21:23
What an inviting view! The colors and clarity of the water, and the cylindrical stone windmills are presented as beautifully as one would hope. Warm regards,
kato (11630) 2012-07-09 23:19
You're capturing well this place bya good composition and excellent one/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see four wind mills and blue tables near the sea. The sea with two layer colors is clean and beutiful. Here seems to a good place for visit.
Have a nice week.
papagolf21 (85498) 2012-07-10 1:49
Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Merci de nous faire rêver à travers vos superbes photographies.
Ici, encore, nous avons le droit à une vue exceptionnelle sur ces vieux moulins, et toujours un lieu pour se réunir et profiter de l'environnement.
dkmurphys (48484) 2012-07-10 1:55
Very beautiful capture at the sea side. Splendid windmills and a blue restaurant that waits for the clients. Well seen.
ikeharel (56104) 2012-07-10 2:46
windmills are one smart thing invented in our world, Danos, and whenever I see those ancient mills, I can only admire people back in time who new how to use wind-energy - and nowadays goverments lack the wisdom to subsedize projects alike.
Wonderful POV show the seafront location, with fine details.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-07-10 3:24
The typical architecture of the mills is well described by the clever choice of perspective. The bather, and people sitting and the restaurant terrace or café, bring something that suggests the pleasure of living there. The light, colors, sharpness and depth are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Γειά σου Δάνο,
ωραία φωτογραφία,πολύ καλή επιλογή σημείου λήψης,άψογα καδραρισμένη,με καλό φωτισμό και ωραία φυσικά χρώματα,
ourania (30227) 2012-07-10 4:31
Καλησπέρα Δάνο και καλώς ήρθες!
Πολύ ωραία η ομαδική φωτογραφία των τεσσάρων μύλων που φαίνεται πως είναι νεοφερμένοι στο τοπίο. Η επιβλητική τους παρουσία εξισορροπείται θαυμάσια από τις διαγώνιες γραμμές του τοίχου και της προκυμαίας. Τα χρώματα είναι λίγα αλλά υπέροχα, αποπνέουν ηρεμία και αρμονία. Το μέρος σίγουρα είναι ευχάριστο όλες τις ώρες της ημέρας. Μου αρέσει πολύ το φως όπως και οι ευγλωττες λεπτομέρειες που συμπληρώνουν την εικόνα. Μπράβο και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό απόγευμα,
pierrefonds (56488) 2012-07-10 4:38
The distance between the mills and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architewcture of the mills. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
mauro61 (52623) 2012-07-10 5:34
doppia diagonale con i mulini e le sedie colorate in azzurro.
Ben ambientata la scena con la luce che la attraversa trasversalmente,
ChrisJ (96704) 2012-07-10 6:19
I like the angled axis of the 4 old stone windmills & their repetition. Good sharpness & a fine coastal view with wonderful color saturation and repetition of the fg blue plastic chairs. Looks like a nice spot for alfresco dining! Tfs!
COSTANTINO (54516) 2012-07-10 6:58
wonderful composition with vivid and impressive colors

you know how much I love Greece and this is a splendid shot. So typical and composed so creatively. It looks such an idyllic spot and I would just love to be there out of the English rain sipping an ouzo and feeling the warm sun on my back. Ho Hum!

very curious these mills in the edge of the sea, in spain and portugal we can see some of them, but only inside the fields. a surprising view and excellent composition, with a nice quality.
John_F_Kennedy (42062) 2012-07-11 0:32
These gorgeous buildings are presented very good. I like that repetition of these towers
Angshu (55407) 2012-07-11 3:44
Nice picture with the old & typical structure of the windmaills in a diagonal. Like the opposing diagnals of the shore lines & the paved causeway where the windmills are located. The water separating them is blue & crystal clear. Fine place & I can see why you are so well recharged :-)
ciakgiak (30409) 2012-07-11 6:13
la forza e la bellezza di TE è quella di poter condividerecon gli amici posti di tale bellezza.
E' spettacolare la vista di questi quattro mulini in sequenza, a ridosso di un mare bellissimo.
Un'immagine da incorniciare, bella e di gran qualità,
un caro saluto

Those refurbished ancestors of aeolian, landmark for pleasure boats, thrumph with majesty so located in the sea and they compose with the blue tables an outstanding exotic cove to enjoy cordial meetings!
Tigerlily (3075) 2012-07-11 6:42
Wonderful composition.. very interesting view, I have never seen four mills on the row before..A beautiful place to be. Have a nice day, Danos.
bertolucci (13358) 2012-07-11 6:54
A very fine capture of this beautiful space. It's great that the old industrial infrastruicture is still there and so well maintained. I like the compo and the way the terrace furniture adds attraction (and memories).
Best regards from Rotterdam,

Une autre magnifique image de votre pays, le bleu toujours présent, l'alignement des moulins, les reflets et une lumière sublime du sud, très jolie
serp2000 (39604) 2012-07-11 20:38
Very interesting and informative note and good illustration. Fine composition as a result of clever POV. Another excellent photo in your gallery. Congrats!
abmdsudi (42690) 2012-07-11 23:14
Admire your skill and takllent in particular how you find this wonderful viewing point, the almost L shape jutting out to the sea where the greatest interest is and juxtaposed to those neatly arranged blue table-chairs diagonally providing the necessary contrasts and focal. They are at the right spot to give us the ideas as to the size. This is so well thought out composition and finely executed. Awesome picture Danos, really great effort. TFs :))
marina7 (8053) 2012-07-12 5:19
that's an idyllic view, love the soft colors of the sea and the sky. The point of view is a well-chosen one, very attractive!
have a good time
jaywalker (16095) 2012-07-12 12:05
Hi Danos, The four mills are a gorgeous sight on the banks of the water, & the blue table & chairs are a nice addition, there is very good light & excellent detail, kind regards Wilson.

Hello,what an utterly charming setting.The composition is so well organized with sharp details and perfectly natural colors.Greetings,Wolf.
mkamionka (30220) 2012-07-12 13:03
beautiful mills. I like the perfect composition with two diagonals -one with the charming dark blue tables and the other one with windmills. Great choice of POV. Everything seems to be thought through.
francio64 (38276) 2012-07-12 13:23
bella prospettiva sui mulini che formano una diagonale che dà profondità all'immagine.
Luce ben gestita e ottimo sharp.

Μου αρέσει πολύ αυτούς τους παλιούς ανεμόμυλους στα ελληνικά νησιά του Αιγαίου. Τέσσερις όμορφους ανεμόμυλους στην προκυμαία και δίπλα στα γαλάζια τραπέζια στα οποία θα ήταν χαρά μου να πιει ένα ποτήρι ρετσίνα. Υπέροχα χρώματα και τέλεια ποιότητα εικόνας.
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-07-13 16:10
What a set of 4 windmills built in stones and a deck to relax and enjoy the view. Those blue chairs and tables give strong color contrast. And that small green plant looks very charming. Everything is captured to perfection.

Excellent picture ,real masterpiece
josepmarin (57711) 2012-07-15 6:49
the graphical contrast between the windmills and the tables and the blue chairs is strong and gives a good visual power at your photo.
I like also the great quality of the colors and the nice balance between the illuminated areas and the shady areas, that they offer us a perfect exposure. The composition is very clean and very attractive.
Best regards, my friend,
delpeoples (53001) 2012-07-15 20:27
Kalispera dear Danos
What a beautiful dedication to our friend Maria. So typically Mediterranean and very attractive to the eye. I love the perspective, the pin-sharp definition and of course those colours - no wonder blue and white are on the Greek flag. Is this the same place that Ourania took her windmills?
baddori (19423) 2012-07-16 22:38
Molti particolari in questo ambiente stupendo.
Ormai non mi stupisce ..anzi.
Bellezze architettoniche e vita quotidiana.
I tavoli del locale, il contesto della scena .
I riflessi sul mare ed una luce trasversale che anima l'ambiente .
mjw364 (7340) 2012-07-19 1:55
Good Morning Danos
This is great shot...well composedwith graphic lines and those Windmills are so unusual - makes me want to visit the place.
siolaw (38274) 2012-07-19 6:58
Geia sou Danos,
The high POV gives a good idea of the place, which is actually quite beautiful! Compo is well balanced between the diagonal row of (empty!) restaurant chairs and the famous mills.
Good general quality too!
La_Tulipe (2798) 2012-07-19 9:33
Une composition avec toute une série d'éléments vraiment intéressants.Sous des lumières parfaites l'architecture particulières de ces différentes moulins bien alignés , l'avant plan et sa terrasse aux tables et chaises d'un bleu intense, les petits murs de pierres, la touche de couleur apportée par la plante verte et très loin à l'horizon un bateau blanc que l'on ne peut pas louper malgré la richesse de cette belle image.
Janusz1974 (2824) 2012-07-19 10:32
A remarkable view of this famous wind mills but from an original pov.

Among the new photos from your gallery, increases during my vacation, my attention this wonderful composition, so striking that these four mills are almost deep in the sea, a lovely corner that conveys the essence of beauty and relaxation Aegean islands.
These tables have a privileged place to enjoy a superb environment. Well done.
Noel_Byrne (23326) 2012-07-30 5:33
Wow, what a place, and what a history! Beautiful capture of these unique buildings, and I agree, I would give my right arm to be sitting at those blue tables right now, sipping a cold drink and admiring the surroundings. Your image does great justice to a beautiful place.

Hello danos ,
A stuning view of this four wind mills so close to the sea . May be that is usual in Greece , but not at all in France . The composition is excellent , too , with the blue tables of the restaurant in the FG .
fabbs99 (16163) 2012-08-15 7:17
Very special image with lots blue in it.Good sharpness and clarity.The mills standing bye the sea side speak their stories in their own colors.In one word the photograph is LOVELY.

Thanks for the link ( I don t know to do it) that let me watch this very beautiful capture with a great composition with a good POV from where we can appreciated both the inviting terrace and the mills' s view

quovadis (1052) 2012-09-15 23:36
Hi Danos !!!
Lovely presentation, the scene of the mills remainds me of the Don Quixote story :)
Nice combination, waterscape and the stone mills, plus the blue chairs and tables. Colour and sharpness wise superb image.
Enjoy your Sunday in peace,love and prayer !!!
Robert1969 (6954) 2012-09-17 3:34
Photogenic environment and you can also feel
the history. I like the Z-form in the picture,
that creates anice depth. Compoistion, light
management and the point of view are (as
macjake (55614) 2012-09-17 14:25
very nice photo my friend.
i like how it easily and smartly creates depth by the angles.
excellent composition with the rule of thirds with the horizon line. also a great job with the lighting as its so easy to overexpose it.
sandpiper (6788) 2012-09-21 4:39
Ahh yes, I could sit there for a while.....I can smell the Meditteranean. So inviting, superb composition and elements.
mirosu (13340) 2014-02-26 1:13
You have produced really striking image here. The best composition are always the simplest, and your bold arrangement of windmills within the frame certainly has impact. Asymmetrical arrangement creates excellent balance and harmony. The light reflections on the water surface add nice hue to the scene. I like the arrangement with the blue tables and chairs in front.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.
