There are several beaches scattered around this picturesque town on the south east coast of Samos not far from the airport. This was my pick. Some of the others were rocky with stones instead of sand as seen here. Not too many shots uploaded on TE of Pythagorio either, which is the birthplace of Pythagoras of geometry, math & philosophy fame.

You have captured well the activities at the beach and in the sea. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the cliff and of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello Chris, Nice to see the place when Pythagoras was born. The beach is small but it looks very inviting. I can imagine the clear and warm water. Woow, to swim there..
Have you plans for a trip this year? Maybe Central Europe this time?

Jolie vue de cette plage. Le triangle rectangle est bien présent dans ta compo, on va pouvoir appliquer le fameux théorème....

In a right angled triangle....:-) Who did not have Pythagoras's theory drummed into them at school? So, it is very interesting to see the town where he was born and evidently named for him. A pleasantly lit image with good colours and sharpness. I like the point of view and the way the land falls away from left to right.

an idyllic shot this. I remember this little beach so well and this shot captures the atmosphere and beauty of its location perfectly. Excellent!
Have an enjoyable Sunday - B.

I wondered if there was a connection between the location and Pythagoras when I saw the name.
It is indeed a very pretty place, with an interesting backdrop and a sandy beach. The sea around Greece always looks particularly inviting with this aqua colour.
You have managed a good composition, the sea with its reflections occupying the f/g thirds whilst the slope offers a pleasing diagonal, adorned with fine, red-roofed houses.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Quelle belle plage. Les gens se sentent confortables entre la mer et la montagne. Le point de vue nous donne une bel ensemble ensoleillé et coloré.

You are right not many shots of Pythagorio or Samos.
Is the beach to the right of the harbour.

nice summery scene - people swimming in the sea, umbrellas on the beach and lovely sun - there is no summer like the on the Greek island :-)
Very eye pleasing picture with good composition and very well handled light which under circumstances must have been quite harsh.
Thanks for sharing

good evening Chris,
When looking at your photo, I can understand from where Pythagoras learnt about triangles and angles and created his "Theorems".
Nice light over the beach, place with calm and charming ambiance. "Falling" slopes onto the sea is a fine sight here.

ciao dear Chris very beautiful paradaise from Grecee with the house over the beach

beach and place by sea is very nice. Pleasant summer atmosphere. Fine POV, composition and colors. I like it.
Have a nice evening.

a lovely presentation of the beach and the surrounding scenery, an agreeable scene of summer holidays. It's a typical mix of houses, hotels, restaurants and parasols, a place shared by visitors and locals alike, a daily life setting and a tourist resort at the same time. The afternoon light and the colours are wonderful, clarity and atmosphere are great. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
nikkitta (17066) 2014-03-17 14:30
Pitagoras well kmown by his theorem, was born here? interesting to place him as human person along with the Summer capture, nicol of water but few beach, anyway few people
Great perspective following the curve

I've never been to Greece but from what I've seen it looks like a very beautiful country especially the ocean and the architectures. Awesome capture of this seaside community with sharp details. Were the women topless? Well done, tfs.

A very heartwarming photo from last summer. I would love to live in one of those houses perched on the hill. The color of the bay is lovely.
