That biker likes to live dangerously :)
This isn't the kind of images that we are used to see from Greece.
Good testimony of the storm.
Excellently composed picture.
Only the top of the lamppost is missing but of course there won't have been an abundance of time for this snapshot.
Best regards, Paul

Not only the ciclist is brave, also the photogroher.., taking risks to obtain a strong full of mouvement capture
Well composed , like the line of cranes at the back

I'm just back from western France, Brittany, where severe and strong tempests are presently occurring
I see that greece is also under rather bad weather conditions
Well shown in your image, shot at the right instant, both for the waves and the presence of the cyclist
beat regards, have a nice evening

Hello Costantino ,
In my region , we have such bad weather since the 15th of december .
Your composition is very good . A pitty that you 've cropped the top of the lamp , but the presence of the biker is really excellent ;

bella foto anche questa, anche qui l'onda fa la parte principale, creando un punto di interesse molto forte, a cui è stato aggiunto l'uomo in bici e il suo riflesso.

Very impressive photo of the power of a storm. You captured at a very apt moment to show the wave crushing over the wall. The presence of the man adds to the composition. The sky seem peaceful and beautiful at the moment. A good image showing the power and beauty of nature.

Perfect timing with the wave crashing onto the shore next to the bike rider. Good sharpness and composition.
Corry (4508) 2014-02-08 20:44
Belle image de cette mer agitée qui vient s'échoir sur la plage. La présence du cycliste ajoute à la composition. Bien fait.
UlfE (14641) 2014-02-08 23:44
Exccellent bad weather photo.Perfect timing with both the wave and the cyclist. I really like that diagonal line of water on the quay and that the cyclist is moving along this line. This adds dynamics to the scene. Also very good that you were able to include the reflection of the cyclist in its entirety. TFS and have a nice Sunday!

Hello Costantino. In Europe, the weather is crazy. Snow, rain, mild temperatures, storm, high waves - everything is there. All this is no fun, because we miss the usual weather. So we marvel at the whims of nature, - and the intrepid cyclists.
I wish you a nice Sunday
ikeharel (56024) 2014-02-09 0:47
Several subjects combined here to one photo: the big wave pounding on the promenade, and you superbly caught the moment. Than there is one brave biker not afraid to ride along the waterfront in this kind of weather.
On the far side we see very clearly the port and cranes, while in far on the horizon the sky are clearing up.
Fine winter ambiance collected.
krzychu30 (15496) 2014-02-09 1:57
bad weather,but how picturesque for photographers,right?
Your previous shot was excellent,but this one with the cyclist has this "something"(a human element),which makes the scene complete.
And of course the rough sea-perfectly captured and timed.You were able to convey here well the power of nature!
Wish You a nice sunday
marabu61 (8145) 2014-02-09 3:13
I wonder if the cyclist is really enjoying his hobby or rather cycling home from work. I for my part would not dare to ride my bike so close to the harbor front under these bad weather conditions. The question now is this kind of waves normal for the season in Volos or do we see here a sign of the changing climate that affects our planter?
Anyway it is a strong composition.
have a great sunday
snunney (82547) 2014-02-09 4:20
There seems to be nowhere in Europe escaping this awful weather. You have captured this shot at exactly the right moment; the cyclist is well placed and the wave crashes against the lamp. I like the point of view and the presence of the yellow buildings which makes a great anchor point and frame. Also, the soft light and colours.
Romano46 (17494) 2014-02-09 4:30
la seconda foto con lo stesso soggetto ed anche questa perticolarmente suggestiva.
Le forze della natura hanno sempre una certa attrazione e con loro lo spettacolo è sempre assicurato.
Eccellente la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona domenica
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-02-09 5:32
well captured scene which shows the sea in Greece is not always friendly and picturesquely blue. I like dynamism of this image as well as reality. The cyclist in the corner seems to be not moved at all by the weather.
Good POV and well proportioned composition.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice Sunday
karacabeylis (1465) 2014-02-09 7:30
the severe waves lashing the bank look effective and the pale colors are making a favorable contrubution to the nervy atmosphere

Good evening Costantino,
This guy is a brave man riding his bike in this stormy windy weather and he seems to be enjoying it
Great capture, well managed and presented, hope you did not get to wet from the spray.
mesutilgim (83028) 2014-02-09 11:52
Hello dear Costantino,
That's what we call here in Turkey "Lodos" ! Heavy sothwind storms which may create wonderfull sceneries specially at the seasides, like here !
I like your layout and dynamism of the scenery which is getting more visible by the splashing waves and the biker trying to move out of the Neptun's danger !
TFS and have a nice Sunday evening !
fabbs99 (16163) 2014-02-09 23:33
Perfect shallow lighting and a delightful composition of the beach side with splashing waves.You have captured the mood of this beautiful place extremely well. Excellent photography.TFS.

The ma on bike here seems to be in trouble, looks like the next big wave is going to hit him. A very good and very dramatic picture of the forces of nature and an interesting scene from daily life.
Nicou (120410) 2014-02-10 2:08
Il n'a pas peur l'homme en vélo, le cycliste quel captage et déclenchement au bon moment sueprbe quelle vague et vue sueprbe iamge et effet.
Bravo et amitié

Bonjour, cher Costantino,
Ah ! quand la nature reprend le dessus, nous ne sommes pas grand chose face aux éléments naturels.
L'image est fort bien présentée. La vague déferlante sur la chaussée exprime bien son "mécontentement".
amaryllis (34417) 2014-02-10 5:43
en effet la météo n'était pas bonne ce jour là; la force de l'eau est incroyable et comme cet enfant il vaut mieux passer au loin, c'est plus prudent!
Tout le monde est à la même enseigne, des tempêtes qui néanmoins nous permettent de faire de belles photos
serp2000 (39558) 2014-02-10 8:05
When I saw this thumbnail I thought this is a fresh photo. But I see this photo from the past, and I remember that bad weather and your reports from the place. Good capture of the water expression, impressive background. Poor bicyclist...
willperrett (6712) 2014-02-10 9:10
I was knocked off my bike by the wind a few weeks ago: it looked quite like this. Not the view of Greece that we are used to seeing and all the better for that. An interesting, "authentic" scene.
Miguel82 (22861) 2014-02-11 11:40
Dear Constantino, high waves and rough sea in Magnisia sea front, good memory of meto conditions during that time of the year, high definition, bright colors, all the best, greetings

συναρπαστική χειμωνιάτικη εικόνα από την προκυμαία του Βόλου. Υπάρχουν πολλά ενδιαφέροντα και αγαπητά χαρακτηριστικά της πόλης μέσα στο κάδρο σου, το γνώριμο σκηνικό είναι γεμάτο ένταση λόγω της καοκαιρίας. Φανταστική η κίνηση της θάλασσας και το ξάφνιασμα του κύματος που σκάει. Επειδή κι εγώ κάνω ποδήλατο δίπλα στη θάλασσα το χειμώνα, ξέρω ότι ο ποδηλάτης έκανε τους υπολογισμούς του πριν περάσει:) Μου αρέσει το θριαμβευτικό του χαμόγελο:) Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

Hi Costantino, A great captured moment of bad weather. The huge waves rushing over to the road is scary. The cyclist is brave as well as the photographer who risked his life to take this amazing moment of Mother Nature. Super colour tones and point of view. The reflections on the road are super. Thank for sharing
mcmtanyel (12463) 2014-02-12 21:34
Another lovely photo of the storm. That bike rider looks well placed with a lovely reflection, but I have bad news for him: Salt water rusts the bike quickly, I hope he washed his bike with fresh water after his ride.

Le mauvais temps est général
Ce cycliste prends des risques
Je note un bon moment décisif avec cette vague qui éclate
kato (11630) 2014-02-13 12:47
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which the huge wave is washing the road. You catched well this decisive moment, and catched this location with port, building and mountain of backdrop. And, a lonely/brave cyclist draws out a good impact in this image.
jemaflor (83711) 2014-02-15 7:59
Impressive waves well taken, good report about this bad weather time. Well taken with the man on the right side, interesting detail.
jmdias (54533) 2014-02-28 16:38
this other image of the same moment is fantastic too. I liked your sense of opportunity with excellent framing catching well the moment of the splash, the local details and even a personage well positioned. TFS., very nice compo.
adores (36183) 2014-03-06 9:50
A very good capture of a dangerous scene! Here, people do this kind of things all the time and sometimes accidents happen. I like the composition a lot. The man is very well placed and the wave makes all the difference!
