I can see why this is like a little paradise.
seems to be tucked away quietly, away from all the hustle and bustle.
beautiful looking colors in the water, i like how the aqua colors change.
ikeharel (61491) 2013-11-14 2:42
maybe you should title that "yet another hidden paradise"...
Beautiful location, stunning blue sea, and fine view from a high point. Fine view looking at the rocks in grey tone contrast the green and blue.

The trees and the rocks are framing well the beach and the sea. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the trees, of the rocks and of the sea. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Good afternoon Danos,
A lovely secluded swimming cove that reminds me a little of beaches in Corfu. Good sharpness and the people provide scale and context as well as animating the scene. The azure color of the water is amazing. A superb high pov also. Have a nice week!
Kielia (24073) 2013-11-14 7:46
this is the first photo of Lampinou here and I wonder if you are presenting further images? You have discovered a fantastic place and I agree to you: it is stealing the heart of the viewer! Thanks for sharing!
Kugart (1778) 2013-11-14 8:11
Fantastic view looking down on this little secluded area and as you say a hidden paradise. Nice contrast between the green vegetation and the white rocks. Beautiful colour tones on the water it must be crystal clear. The people must be having a good time swimming in it. Excellent lighting and sharpness showing all detail clearly. Just stunning.
dta (70325) 2013-11-14 8:19
Hello DAnos ,
This is the kind of little beach that I prefer . Superb contrast of the emerald water with the white rocks and the greenery .
lousat (81124) 2013-11-14 9:03
Waaw Danos,what a corner! I like a lot this kind of greek sea pics,realy beautiful the POV from the top of the beach to see the best water colors,i never hear this island,it seems very interesting...ehehe...my best compliments for the great quality ,have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
Fis2 (88833) 2013-11-14 10:20
A lovely place.
Interesting POV and composition.
Good colors and light.
Very impressive water.
ourania (35100) 2013-11-14 10:21
μια πολύ ωραία εικόνα καλοκαιρινής ξεγνοιασιάς με τους ανθρώπους να κολυμπούν όχι μόνο στο νερό αλλά και στο φως και στα χρώματα. Μου αρέσουν πάρα πολύ τα φυσικά σχήματα και χρώματα που αποτελούν το παζλ αυτής της εικόνας. Μέσα στην απλή σύνθεση υπάρχουν πολλές χαρακτηριστικές υφές και θαυμάσια χρώματα της ελληνικής φύσης. Το φως αναζωογονεί τα πάντα, ιδιαίτερα το χρώμα της θάλασσας είναι μαγευτικό. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-11-14 10:59
actually your title captures perfectly what we see.It´s really a piece of paradise here on Earth.
Rocky shoreline and beautiful and clear water-what more do we need for a perfect summer day?
Really nicely composed and framed scene.Your POV from above provides us with magnificent view of the small beach and its surrounding.
Have a nice evening
marina7 (8055) 2013-11-14 11:12
a hidden gem indeed, that emerald green water is so enticing. The natural framing is great too, lush greenery and contrasty limestone rocks. I wish there had been no people to spoil the idyll for me though:))
Miguel82 (26254) 2013-11-14 11:17
That little creek really looks paradisiac Danos and the water colors is very attractive, good inclusion of the coastline forest, excellent resolution and pov, all the best, have a nice evening
cornejo (34626) 2013-11-14 12:02
Hello Danos, I like this beautiful picture of this little paradise, beautifully captured in this beautiful and interesting image with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
nikkitta (16230) 2013-11-14 16:17
I understand quite well why it was a hidden paradise , difficult to arrive with incredible turquose, trasparent waters
Very good framed by rocks and vegetation
Nice to see people enjoying the place
After this photo and note all TE members discovered this paradise that will become a hell plenty of turists
abmdsudi (45704) 2013-11-14 18:49
A glorious summer shot depicting the lush crystal clear deep turquoise blue waters of the med and quite justified in giving it as strong focal of interest and pop up through the cove. A very calm condition that suits the mood and pretty cool! Your view point gives a nice overall view with all the different layers showing so well in particular I love the rock formations providing a nice contrast to the coastline. Looks a wonderful secluded place to explore beautifully captured in great light, colours and a very nice composition, details and presentation, Congrats. tfs
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2013-11-14 19:02
Δάνο, ο τίτλος σου τα λέει ολα και συμφωνω απόλυτα..ενας μικρός κρυμένος παράδεισος για λίγους τυχερούς..και τι να πω για τα χρώματα και τα διάφανα νερά??μοναδικά και υπέροχα σε μια πολύ ιδιαίτερη αναμνηστική φωτογραφία..
στην τελευταία μου φωτογραφία εμένα μου άρεσε αυτο το απέραντο τής θάλασσας να μην ενοχλείται απο τίποτα αλλά άλλοι μου είπανε οτι έπρεπε να υπάρχει κατι να σπάει τήν...."μονοτονία"...ακόμα γελάω...
αντε καλημέρα σου..
mcmtanyel (15607) 2013-11-14 19:26
A beautiful little cove serving, I guess, as a private beach for those who have discovered it. I like the bottom framing with the trees and the little opening through which we can watch the swimmers.
mirosu (15126) 2013-11-14 23:09
Bothe are perfect, this beautiful photo and superb informative note.
I like the view to beautiful mini beach. The bird view is excellent and the composition with nice framing by green trees is superb. Very well done.
Wish you a nice weekend.
mkamionka (31999) 2013-11-15 8:45
beautiful view of this lovely beach. I like very much the vivid predominantly green color. Water especially is so attractive! I like especially the people swimming down there. They add a sense of scale here and they make us feel as if we were secretly watching them.
Great rocky fragment of the coast nice framing with the vegetation.
adramad (39770) 2013-11-15 9:28
Certainly this looks heavenly corner, a perfect crystal blue waters in the coastal rocks, adorned with green bushes.
A perfect colorful natural.
A very bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a great weekend.
kato (11630) 2013-11-15 10:46
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see clean/blue sea and the surrounding rocks/greenery. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination. And, some visitors in here looks like enjyoying this hidden paradise.
Royaldevon (32641) 2013-11-15 11:13
The inclusion of the f/g trees has created a natural frame which completely surrounds the tiny bay. No wonder it appears like a 'hidden' paradise. The aquamarine tones of the water are beguiling, so very Greek!
I'm glad you included the swimmers. They really are necessary to give a scale to the photograph.
Have a lovely w/e,
Vasa (16778) 2013-11-15 15:54
The color of the water invite me immediately on the beach. Thank you Danos for inspiration!
PS. 3:1 is good result for Greece. We are happy, since Serbia will not be present in Brazil. Bur we have Greece....
fabbs99 (16813) 2013-11-15 19:49
Nice shot of this rocky beach probably behind the branches.We can see few people taking swim in the waters.Nice light and good clarity. Really nice shot. Well done. TFS.
thebest (4276) 2013-11-15 22:57
Another of those secluded hidden gems that you find - beautiful & tranquil - nature at its best.
Certainly steals my heart.
I hope you are enjoying a nice weekend!
jemaflor (88199) 2013-11-15 23:36
Nice place to swimm, lovely water with this blue color, light is well managed, intersting with people on the view.
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2013-11-16 2:18
namaste Danos, this is really a beauty. Love the sight which you got from height. Great colours and depth. Superb clarity. Those people in water added life to it. Superb shot. Tfs.

pleasant summer image and mood. Interesting view of small bay with rock coast. Fine glance on the swimming peoples. Photo I like.
Have a nice evening.
Cricri (110295) 2013-11-18 10:47
Belle vue plongeante sur les personnes dans cette mer couleurs turquoise, merveilleux endroit sauvage et attirant, très belle présentation
delpeoples (54467) 2013-11-20 3:43
Shhh don't tell anyone! :) It really is a beautiful little hideaway. The emerald water is so inviting I don't blame you for wanting to dive off the cliff straight into the sea. I also like the natural framing provided by the greenery.
Well done, thanks for sharing
s_lush (16134) 2013-11-20 5:13
This cozy corner of the Greek coast really looks like a hidden paradise with lush vegetation, crystal blue water and highly picturesque rock formations. Excellent point of view, well-balanced composition, beautiful colors and very high quality!
fds (8750) 2013-11-20 9:38
very beautiful view between the trees of the fantastic sea coast with the peoples swimming
great colors of the sea and great location dear friend
Didi (58440) 2013-11-21 10:02
Beautiful place who reminds me the Calanques of Marseille
Your point of view is very good
geoant68 (331) 2013-11-22 23:03
Δάνο γεια σου,
εδώ είναι κρυμμένος ένας Παράδεισος πράγματι.Χαλάλι και το περπάτημα όταν πρόκειται να συναμτήσει κάποιος αυτή την μαγεία,
amaryllis (35561) 2013-11-22 23:08
Cet endroit est vraiment paradisiaque, pouvoir se baigner dans cette petite crique sans beaucoup de monde est un atout non négligeable
La couleur de l'eau est sublime
Ces rochers apportent un contraste de couleurs
Bonne luminosité et belle vue en plongée avec ces baigneurs qui profitent d'un bon moment dans un beau cadre
adores (39908) 2013-11-28 13:47
The colour of the water is fantastic! Guess those people are having a great time there and your pov is really good. Good to see such a shot now that the cold is here to stay!
