Mirabello Gulf is an embayment of the Sea of Crete on the eastern part of Crete in present day Greece. This locale was important in prehistoric settlement of the island of Crete.
The coast of the Gulf of Mirabello was noted for its role in copper metallurgy development in the period circa 3000 BC. In the Late Minoan period, cities on high ground overlooking the Bay of Mirabello were founded as cities of refuge, including Karphi. Later in the Dorian Invasion, settlement occurred of other hilltop cities overlooking the Bay of Mirabello. An example of this phase of settlement was the city of Lato.
Have a nice week.

Un bon point de vue, la borne jaune est bien située en avant plan.
Une bonne composition avec des contrastes agréable.

You've created an eye-catching composition, making the golden bollard the focal point of the composition. There is peace and tranquility in the simple scene devoid of people.
Warm regards from the United States,

Hello Nasos ,
An interesting composition with the yellow element in the FG , the island at the horizon , and a wonderfl cloudy formation .

This is a very nice composition. It is quite simple, which I find is a strong advantage. There are clear, bright details in the foreground and and a great contrast of colours. The very nicely shaped clouds are rightly given two thirds of the area. It is also a technically brilliant photo.

love this! A minimalist piece of Greek magic. All the blues are here and they stand out so beautifully when peppered with a little yellow. A superb observation and creative presentation. Wonderful!
Have a good week - B.

una bellissima foto dalla composizione che colpisce con l'evidenza della bitta gialla che crea un bel contrasto con l'azzurro del mare e del cielo.
Notevoli anche i colori e la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona giornata

πολύ όμορφο το στιγμιότυπο με το κίτρινο αγκυροβόλιο να κάνει το τέλειο κοντραστ με το μπλε της θάλασσας.Τα σύννεφα στον ουρανό ΄διακοσμούν΄ τέλεια το σκηνικό με το λαμπρό φως να κάνουν την φωτογραφία τόσο Καλοκαιρινή.

Like this post a lot! It presents a simple but also well composed scene taken with strong color contrast and saturation. The visa on the land, sea and sky is simply marvelous. TFS!

Kalispera dear Nasos
Beautiful vertical frame, Rule of Thirds framing and light management. The yellow tones contrast beautifully with the azure of the sky and deep blue of the sea. The blue and white frame works well too. My compliments.
Warmest wishes, geia sou
