The Castle of Leros and a spectacular cloudscape on a September afternoon that offered lovely light and a lot of photo opportunities.
Within the walls lies the church of Our Lady of the Castle which was celebrated on the evening of the 14th and on the 15th of August.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Wonderful overview of Leros town with the castle on top of the steep mountain and this under a fantastic sky with all these pretty cloud lines.
You're right to reserve that much space on the picture for the sky.
Beautiful colour contrasts too.
Best regards, Paul

une très belle photo, les nuages forment des dessins artistiques dans le ciel bleu, c'est bien vu!

Good choice to allocat much space to the beautiful sky above.
The bay and mountains scenery, taken under favorable light cond. that enhanced white and baige colors of the houses built on the slope.
Also, contrast with the blue-bay water.
Well taken POV, and photojob.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

true art of nature, no human can match the skills of nature as you so well prove here. This sky is beautiful and a shade of blue we have not seen Ireland in quite a while. Great way to portray the town, under this sky whose clouds seem to have a very happy face dappled inside its wispy designs
have a great weekend

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical. Il est très lumineux. La mer apporte de la profondeur et le superbe ciel apporte de l'ampleur à l'ensemble. Le tout est d'une superbe netteté.

Ευχαριστώ για τις ευχές σου και ανταποδίδω. Τι πανέμορφο κάδρο, είναι σας πίνακας ζωγραφικής. Υπέροχος ουρανός με το βουνό και το κάστρο να δεσπόζουν αγέρωχα. Καταπληκτική δουλεία έχει γίνει ήδη screensaver.

Bravo et amitié

Another masterpiece. The sky is superb. A lovely POV showing the town spreading up the hillside. I keep being drawn to the brown building to the right.

You took these picture in a vertical picture with a wonderful result.
Lovely perspective and depth picture.
I like the light cloudy sky, very nice above the mountain and village.
Excellent composition, nice presentation, nice photo work.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

This is a magnificent photo. The clouds were truly fantastic that day and the light has that crispy clarity that we can see also here in the north on a sunny day in September. Probably you didn't feel that tinge of chilly winds that come to us at that time of the year, telling us that winter is approaching. The photo is perfectly sharp, but the clear light also helps to bring out every detail among the houses climbing the hillside.

Hello Ourania, great photograph of this beautiful composition, with the view of the town and castle on the hill, very well captured in this beautiful image with the bay in the foreground, good sharpness, depth, beautiful light, color and quality. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and good Sunday.
All the best from southern Spain.

Hi Ourania dear
I love the beautiful blue sky. Vertical compositions are well chosen. Good clarity and depth. Thanks for sharing this nice picture
abmdsudi (42618) 2014-08-16 23:14
Very eye catching skyscape aided by the wonderful detailed backdrop blessed by subtle clarity, colours and contrast. The composition and viewpoint are pleasant and for me it ranks up there as one of your best works. Superb capture, tfs

You got a beautiful blue sky with some nicely shaped clouds here for the view of this castle, so it was a good thing to include such a large part of it. The sunlight makes it all even more appealing. Thanks for sharing!
miumiu (5837) 2014-08-17 4:14
The colours, sky and POV are superb on your photo.
The sea and the waves are so beautiful in the foreground.
l like the Castle on the top of the hill too.
SnapRJW (30911) 2014-08-17 7:00
The little town of Leros is well lit with good contrasty light Ourania and the buildings stand out well against the richness of the dry foliage and rocks. The clouds are indeed beautiful and I especially like the way the lower one seems to spread out it's 'fingers' and hover protectively over the castle and village.
Cricri (105303) 2014-08-18 3:29
Une vue des plus agréable sur le village de Leros, le château sur la colline , la mer avec les douces vagues bien dans le coin de l'image, un ciel qui est fantastique et qui s'ajoute a la beauté de cette belle présentation
Je vous souhaite une très belle journée

I like this composition. Beautiful place.
All the best, Barbara

Indeed the sky is beautiful with fine wispy dancing clouds. Light is great as well. I like the diagonal of the sea and the small gentle cliff in the BG crowned by the castle. A lovely place indeed, Leros is, with te town nostling at the bottom right.
adores (36183) 2014-08-25 16:11
A wonderful sky that you got here, those clouds are so great. I like the pov, colours, sharpness and even the small wave forming a diagonal!
Curious_Eye (1000) 2014-08-28 4:55
The sky looks like an abstract painting here and adds beauty to an already picturesque scene. The DOF, light and colours are great and the details make it easy to just stay with this picture, savouring the peaceful mood.
Have a good day!
All the best,
