In northern of Milos, 4km. north-east of Plaka,the capital of island,is found one of the most shot landscapes in Aegean,a small gulf, that entertains the graphic fish village of Firopotamos.
Firopotamos entertains one from the better beaches of island and it is a graphic small port built round a natural creek with green all around waters that promise unforgettable moments of beauty and recreation.
In the creek of Firopotamos, exist also sirmata :the small lodges in which are looked after the boats of at the Wintry period and which, the Summer times,the householders use as Summer rural residences.

I like the colors of the buildings and their reflection on the water that contrast with the transparency of the lighted parts. Good framing and clarity.
pajaran (60061) 2013-10-28 4:26

macjake (67534) 2013-10-28 4:28
yes, i've seen this place before on TE and for good reason, its very photogenic!
so the owners here keep their boats in this garages?
and are these homes that they live in year round? or just during certain times of the year?
so many questions....
so charming and so interesting.
sweet dimmed lighting and with perfect exposure.
enjoy your day

I like frame and colors.
Have a nice day
Sergiom (78551) 2013-10-28 4:51
C'est le cas de dire qu'ils ont les pieds dans l'eau en sortant de la maison. Ce ne doit pas être drôle par journée de grands vents. J'aime les portes de garage bien colorées.
papagolf21 (100912) 2013-10-28 5:13
Bonjour, cher Danos,
Très intéressante prise de vue où l'anse forme une petite plage bordée par de jolis bâtiments.
Encore une merveille de plus.
bayno (18344) 2013-10-28 5:14
beautiful natural bay and typical houses, should be so lucky to own one of those houses and maybe a boat, good framing and good reflexes, light well managed with beautiful details in the shadows...
lousat (90682) 2013-10-28 5:51
Hi Danos,a very original small beach,whit the houses very close to sea,i like a lot the colors so bright of doors,nice sourrounding perspective too and perfect details.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano
pierrefonds (65846) 2013-10-28 7:11
This is great to have your own beach at the bottom of your house. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice dya.
ikeharel (70677) 2013-10-28 8:53
Yes, Danos, I was wondering how come the water were green, and red your note that gave a farly good explantion about.
Houses in the waterfront with boat-garage to each.
Fine combined the two subjects, and well managed the shaded strip by the hill.
mohammad_H (9904) 2013-10-28 8:57
نمای زیبا با انعکاس تصویر در اب
رنگ درب ها چشمگیر و جذاب
کنتراست و شارپنس عالی
dkmurphys (57986) 2013-10-28 10:39
Very attractive capture of those boat garages. I like the painted doors and the clear water. Well taken, enjoy a fine evening.
Miguel82 (27674) 2013-10-28 11:20
A little creek with calm waters Danos, colorful doors and traditional architecture in that place, good light reflection and high resolution, all the best, good evening
ourania (44962) 2013-10-28 11:41
μια πολύ όμορφη και ενδιαφέρουσα προσέγγιση των συρμάτων της Μήλου. Αυτή τη φορά δεν έχουν τον πρώτο λόγο το φως και τα χρώματα αλλά, κατά τη γνώμη μου, η διαμόρφωση του αρχιτεκτονικού τοπίου και η αίσθηση ασφάλειας και ηρεμίας που αυτό προσφέρει. Θαυμάσιος ο γλυκός φωτισμός στη σκιά, η φυσικότητα και η ηρεμία των χρωμάτων. Η γαλήνεια ατμόσφαιρα είναι πραγματικά υπέροχη. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-10-28 12:50
Δάνο, σήμερα πού βρήκα λίγο χρόνο σου γράφω και θαυμάζω τίς φωτογραφίες σου τίς πανέμορφες και τίς μοναδικές..εχω πάει εκει στην Πλάκα, ξέρεις πόσο όμορφα εχω περάσει στήν Μήλο..πανέμορφα τοπία και εικόνες πολύ ιδιαίτερες σαν κι αυτήν τής φωτογραφίας σου..
πώς πήγε η παρέλαση??εμείς εδω τήν κάναμε υπό βροχή αλλά εγινε με όλες τίς τιμές και καμία απουσία...
καλο σου βράδυ
PaulVDV (28797) 2013-10-28 19:36
It are these white lodges with their coloured gates that make the charm of this small creek.
These houses are really squeezed between the sea and the rock wall.
Best regards, Paul
delpeoples (57622) 2013-10-28 19:44
Kalispera dear Danos
What a cute little cove you have found for us. It looks so private and out of the way. I love the curve of the beach, the beautiful colours and of course the reflections of the sheds thrown onto the sea. An idyllic place, thanks for sharing it with us.
mcmtanyel (22216) 2013-10-28 21:09
Those colorful doors are very attractive. Lovely reflections on sublimely caml waters.
mirosu (16129) 2013-10-28 22:13
Excellent view down to nice colorful houses. The reflections in small water bay are excellent. Very well done.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-10-29 0:27
that´s undeniably beautiful and charming little town.
Really never seen such small,but picturesque beach!
Another magnificent composition of you showing us how unique and exceptional Kyklades are.
Your pictures make me wanna go back to Greece!
Wish You a nice day
jmdias (63958) 2013-10-29 0:37
incredible how the sea looks like a swimming pool here. I imagine the level of the tides is not so high in this area and these garages are prepared to be invaded by the waters sometimes. very nice image, curious and well done. TFS.
Kugart (1778) 2013-10-29 1:48
Hi Danos ,
First of all what a beautiful little cove with these summer houses so near the waters edge.
Beautiful clear water with lovely lighting and the lovely vivid colours on the boathouse doors. Nice POV using the natural curve of the little beach leading the eye towards the stone built house in the background . Excellent.
saxo042 (37872) 2013-10-29 2:26
A fine picture of this secluded bay with this long line of boathouses with all their differently painted doors. Must be very pleasant to have an apartment along the upper floors here!
Noel_Byrne (30998) 2013-10-29 5:49
I know I have mentioned it before, but I am amazed how close the buildings are to the sea here, the water laps the doors of these places, amazing site. Lovely color in the various doors across this scene, a very pleasant capture indeed.
All the best
abmdsudi (53615) 2013-10-29 9:07
You have great eye in identifying the opportunity like this and successfully exploited the potential to max impact. Lovely how those stunning vivid colours actually liven this quiet sight and your viewpoint grabbed the wide view very well. The sheen and water reflection have further enhanced the effect beautifully, exposure is subtle and so much detail to enjoy of a charming little sight indeed. Well done shot, Congrats
Romano46 (18472) 2013-10-29 11:47
con questa foto hai fatto centro!
ad una composizione molro grdevole si accompagna la bellezza del soggetto con i suoi colori pastello che attirano immediatamente l'attenzione.
Eccellente nitidezza ed ottima luce sono ulteriori pregi.
Ciao e buona serata
kato (11630) 2013-10-29 16:38
You're capturing well this small beach by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the small bay and houses with colorful entrance gate standing in front of the bay. It goes well with a white wall. And, the reflection projected to the water draws out a good effect.
jcpix (13916) 2013-10-29 20:03
Wow, this is really fascinating as it's built right to the waters edge...I don't think I've ever quite seen anything like this before. I guess as long as there's no rise in the tide, everything's o.k.?? The water looks crystal clear, and the colorful doors are eye-catching...no wonder this would be photographed so frequently. There's a wonderful mixture of elements here, both natural and man made. A very clean shot, with plenty of detail, texture and smooth light. Well presented, a beautiful little corner! Have a great day ahead.
fabbs99 (17135) 2013-10-29 22:06
Great shot my friend.Nice colors and good sharpness.Very well done.TFS.
jhm (152212) 2013-10-30 3:48
The water comes very close to the houses, but this gives a nice realistic picture.
Also a nice architectural image with these houses.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2013-10-30 7:01
namaste Danos, a nice view, rather interesting. I never saw such kind of beach before. The composition is good with the shops at left. Nice light and superb depth. A good one. Tfs.
zoomer (6) 2013-10-30 9:28
Hello,colorful and idyllic setting.The sea seems rather close does that not cause flooding?Excellent clear shot,best wishes Wolf.
Silvio1953 (142037) 2013-10-30 9:42
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with fantastic colorful houses, nice reflections, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
adramad (45342) 2013-10-30 11:08
A magnificent and astonishing picture, never seen a beach where the houses are so close to the sea, a danger, if there is a swell little more, the image is beautiful with the varied colors of the doors and these buildings so typical.
This superb brightness and sharpness perfect to recreate the image.
Well done, I like.
Have a nice day.
mesutilgim (95048) 2013-10-30 12:25
Hello dear Danos,
Amazing capture full of the end summer atmosphere !
TFS and best regards

Geia sou Danos
The beach appears as a private cove for rich people who don't want to walk far for sunbathing; the overall mood of your picture is related to serenity in a peaceful environment for people who appreciate pristine waters.
The row of garage doors for boats create an interesting eye-catcher in this appealing photo.
Vasa (515) 2013-10-30 17:24
No one door is the same. You have imagination in Greece, my brother, Danos!
Didi (60588) 2013-10-31 3:44
Interesting picture but the houses are too close to the sea. What happens if there is a storm ?
ChrisJ (113203) 2013-10-31 7:07
I know this spot! We exchanged kalimeras with the local fisherfolk as our yacht sailed past for a daytrip to Kleftiko! I liked the many colours of the fishing village. Good sharpness and nice reflections. Tfs!
Cricri (118785) 2013-10-31 9:02
En effet c'est un très bel endroit, j'aime les reflets dans l'eau, les portes colorées, intéressant petit coin, attirant, bonne lumière , bon cadrage
mkamionka (36250) 2013-10-31 13:47
my first thought was that these garages are build strangely too near from the water but then I realized that they are meant for boats. Very interesting and original presentation.
Very well done,
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-10-31 13:51
Looks like the water is almost at the door, do they get flooded during high tide? I like the simple architectures of this fishing village. Nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
jemaflor (96753) 2013-11-01 1:17
Good angle, I like all these colors for the doors, nice reflections also on the water,well balanced.
bukitgolfb301 (41438) 2013-11-02 15:01
Hi dear Danos
Sorry for my late reaction due to some reasons, but I continute to follow your great postings as possible as I can. This is also so tasteful image as your tasets, so romantic color coordination / touch. Great light, color and compoistion-- Perfect image at all.

geoant68 (331) 2013-11-03 10:27
Δάνο γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφο το σκηνικό από την γωνιά αυτή του Φιροπόταμου με τις πολύχρωμες πόρτες από τα σύρματα να δημιουργούν ένα εκρηκτικό σύνολο.Το φως είναι εξαιρετικά επιτυχημένο,όπως και οι δημιουργούμενες σκιές στην άκρη του κύματος,
boa (7375) 2013-11-03 10:50
i can`t imagine a better place for a house, it is almost possibly to jump from the balcony into the water:) You have choosen a good spot for capture this interesting Place. There are both nice light and colors, well done!
Have a nice Sunday.
npecanhuk (75082) 2013-11-07 9:16
Interesting little and intimate spot!
Charming, lovely and inviting picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent here too!
TFS - congrats,
m (0) 2013-11-08 9:42
the owners of these lodges should be fined for breaking the true Greek color scheme, no orange is permitted!:))
Anyway, I like your perspective and the mood of the photo.
UlfE (14641) 2013-11-13 11:11
A really fine composition where you make use of the various element and the strong colours in particular I like the Crescent-shaped shoreline and the diagonal line form by the houses along the beach. TFS and have a nice evening!
s_lush (16134) 2013-11-14 8:09
You have captured a picturesque and nicely designed corner of Milos. The multicolored doors make the scene looking colorful despite the lack of direct sunlight. Well composed, skillfully captured and informatively commented in the note!
Gigidusud (20825) 2013-11-14 14:56
Splendid fishing village resembling our fishing hut here in the South of France. Great POV and nice light. I like it!
gus72 (3719) 2013-11-15 14:53
Hi Danos !!
this photo is a surprise to me........ it is really picturesque....
you were lucky to see it....... it is a remote small place in our planet.
Once again..... the clarity of the water is sensational..... you captured it really well.
Have a nice week end.
thebest (4276) 2013-11-24 14:24
Looks like I have missed a few of your wonderful photo's from Greece...
I am wondering just how far up to the boat sheds does the water reach...
This little cove is so ' BEAUTIFUL ' what a quaint little Port.
Love the colours of the boat sheds - really nice.
Angshu (56750) 2013-11-26 22:55
Very interesting picture indeed! From this POV, the water body looks like a private pool of these houses. The brightly coloured doors brighten the shot! Good work!
fritzi007 (10553) 2014-05-21 13:30
ein zauberhafter Platz mit guter Information, gratuliere!
nikkitta (17066) 2014-07-23 13:09
Finally a photo to comment, informative note about the beach and the way the sirmata are used
Of course the reflect and more the colors of the door are quite eye catching
Personally like the blue terrace
Charming place, excellent composition
