Trademark of Zakynthos. Certainly the most famous beach in Greece and the most impressive of the Mediterranean. The photo has gone around the world and is included in all tourist guides that show our country.
Together with the Caretta Caretta turtles are the main advertisers and representatives of the island, around the world and is ranked one of the most photographed beaches. Located in the northwest of the island. The old name was St. George. The current name derives Shipwreck on a real shipwreck that occurred in 1983. Panagiotis The freighter was carrying contraband cigarettes from Turkey in international waters. Due to bad weather and bad machine ship went on the rocks and washed up on the beach where it remains until today. constitutes one of the main attractions of the island (not unfairly) and would be remiss if it did not look closely this excellent picture. Remember locals there still view the thousands cartons of cigarettes floating in the water and among the sailors, crew members of the ship trying to escape by swimming from the coast guard. 's visitors come to admire the beautiful scenery and swim in the crystal waters

Tu étais vraiment très haute dans la montagne pour pouvoir prendre cette très belle photo de la plage aux eaux d'azur.Les gens sont bien petits dans cette prise de vue.

Thank you very much for your interesting note.
Extraordinarily nice through the picture taken out of the high, the people are very small on the beach
Lovely perspective and depth picture, also nice panoramic view about these area.
Composition and presentation are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice new week,

A stunning POV from the top of the cliff, beautiful sea with (tiny) people around the white sand, and boat over the attractive blue sea.
Charming yet inpressive sight, you managed to collect so superior shot.

pov di eccezione per una spiaggia eccezionale.
Un mare spettacolare, che fa venire voglia di tuffarsi attraverso il monitor.
Bel colpo e bella condivisione.

Did you have a harness strapped to you back, for safety, as you took this shot? It is an excellent viewpoint for capturing the ship and the visiting tourist boats. The tiny figures help to consolidate the extreme scale.
There is no doubting Greece when you see the colour of that sea!
My warm regards,

Seen from a giant's point of view, a beach at the legendary Gulliver's Kingdom featuring the Lilliputians bathing in the magnificent sapphire-coloured cove or embarked aboard a mythical flying sailboat for a cruse over the aquamarine sea!

Such a striking capture from the best vantage point on a brilliant warm and sunny day as the heavenly blue water leads you into the rest of the image. There's so much to savour the eyes but I love the dotted of sun seekers which has further added lots of liveliness to the shot. A magnificent view with extensive details and depth. Congrats,

μια ιλλιγγιώδης και συναρπαστική ματιά στο πασίγνωστο και πάντα μαγευτικό Ναυάγιο. Ο δυναμισμός και η αίσθηση του βάθους δίνουν ξεχωριστό ενδιαφέρον στην εικόνα, εκτός από τα εκπληκτικά χρώματα είναι και οι λεπτομέρειες που τραβούν το ενδιαφέρον μας. Εξαιρετική καθαρότητα και θαυμάσιος φωτισμός που αναδεικνύει τόσο τα χρώματα όσο και την ατμόσφαιρα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

A scene that can be seen at may greek islands. The view from the top is givimng depth to the composition. It is also showing the details of the beach and of the boats. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Great capture this scene from the top. Wonderfully executed image. Great colors, sharpness, perfect clarity. Love it. I like this ship and I like the lovely place.
All the best, Barbara

Μαρία γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη η πανοραμική θέα του ναυαγίου με τον κόσμο να κατακλύζει την περιοχή.Μαγευτικά τα χρώματα όπως και η ομορφιά του τοπίου με τους επισκέπτες να μοιάζουν με κουκίδες.
macjake (60518) 2014-08-21 5:12
and its sad to say, but we didn't get to visit here on our recent journey to Greece :(
perhaps or most certainly next time.
obviously the blue colors are the main attraction, its easy to see why you'd want to show mostly blues and not the shipwreck.
love this shot! makes me want to re-visit
delpeoples (54603) 2014-09-09 8:36
Wow, you are up high! It is making me a little dizzy. But what a great POV you got, one which you had to climb high for, but it was worth it. The water is like turquoise, so inviting and so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this lovely photo.
