A long view towards Little Venice in the distance at right. The old town is a rabbit warren of dead end alleys and twisting lanes that were constructed to confuse pirates. The town of Mykonos is well worth a day or 2 in its own right.

bella non solo per la luce abbagliante che ha reso famosa l'isola con le sue case bianche calcinate dal sole, ma anche per la particolare visuale dalla quale hai scattato.
La scalinata che scende sulla costa conduce lo sgurdo o verso il mare che insieme alla roccia crea un bel contrasto per il differente colore.
Ciao ebuona serata

I may remember wrong but I think these stairs are leading to the windmills.
They're a very good introduction for the view of Little Venice and the coastline further away.
I think the background also looks wonderful with the typical brown colour of the island during summertime but with so many white houses spread all over the area.
Best regards, Paul

The view from the stairs is impressive. The distance between them and the sea is giving depth to the compoaition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of this area of Mykonos. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

Cet escalier conduit judicieusement notre regard vers ces jolies maisons blanches bordant la côte. Bel endroit!

I saw lately little Venice from Mykonos, but I suppose it was not your photo. Amazing white architecture, and what a perspective from these stairs. I am sure it is well worth visiting.

What a beautiful postcard from Greece! Like your high POV on the amazing blue sea and white buildings around. This combination is so typical for islands and always works on the pics. Eye-catching image. Like it a lot!
Have a nice weekend!

Most photographers take a shot on this place from a relatively close range, to show the houses on the waterfront, Chris.
Yet, you had taken a full surrounding view upon, and frankly - this is the first time I comprehend the full view from a distance about this neighbourhood. Had in mind a whole diff. "picture".
Fine photo, white houses contrast well to the sea nad landscape.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

remember stumbling down these steps a few times on my way into and out of this beautiful town. This shot captures the atmosphere and real charm of Mykonos so succinctly. Light and colours managed perfectly here.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

Not seen Little Venice from this angle before,
good capture great detail and sharp colours. Sea looks a bit rough. Enjoyed a few cold Mythos in the bar with a brown roof.

Bravo et amitié

With this very good capture fade away my romantic idea of Mikonos, a port and then stairs to climb on foot or on monkeys
And here are cars, motorcicles, a street, finally a wide atair
Original capture without windmills or the blue cupola
Great perspective and composition
Well done , enjoy WE

so whats it like to visit a place like this? to see it for the first time? must be exciting eh?
must be nice to see that ocean scene with the white and blue architecture.
we often see the post-card shot here, so this is a bit unique and new, from a pulled back pov.
sweet scene all around for its colors, exposure, subject and pov

J'aime ce POV qui nous emmène a la fois sur la mer et le village, les couleurs bleu et blanc on toujours leurs charme, belle présentation
Angshu (56760) 2014-02-28 0:51
A POV from this well shown place, which I must say is quite unique. The perspective is very strong & well drawn towards the white houses and the blue of the sea in the far BG. Good light which brings in the fine colours!

Oh yes i know this section of the island,the shot from the windmills to the little Venice.I like the creative perspective from the staircase to the colourful houses and shops of the backdrop with the common waves to crashed on the waterfront.Well done.
