At the duration of a daily cruise we approached this small,but well hidden beach of Agiofili, that is approached more by the sea. Is found a breath from the famous beach of the resort of Vasiliki a well known windsurfing center. As you see,the turquoises waters are a challenge to be refreshed no one in the clean and provocative sea.
Have a nice and pleasant weekend
Κατά την διάρκεια μιάς ημερήσιας κρουαζιέρας προσεγγίσαμε αυτή την μικρή,αλλά καλά κρυμμένη παραλία Αγιοφύλι,που προσεγγίζεται περισσότερο από την θάλασσα. Ευρίσκεται μιά ανάσα από την φημισμένη παραλία της Βασιλικής γνωστής για το windsurfing center. Όπως βλέπετε τα τιρκουαζ νερά είναι μιά πρόκληση να δροσιστεί κανείς στην καθαρή και προκλητική θάλασσα.
Εύχομαι ένα ευχάριστο και δροσερό τριήμερο.

C'est vrai que celà fait réver un tel paysage. Tout y est pour en faire un joli cliché : les couleurs, la plage, le temps radieux qui fait penser aux vacances. Tu as du faire une petite erreur dans la date de prise de vue car nous sommes toujours en juin.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Good POV, beautiful colors and sharpness.

robertosalguero (196) 2008-06-26 23:19
Beautiful place and the day was excellent to compose the image. The colours look bright and add to the appeal of this natural setting. I like the perspective with the beach arching around the boat. Nice details and light to enhance the quality. Thanks Danos.

Uhu (8347) 2008-06-27 1:51
This shot is so beautiful that it looks almost unreal, like a shot of Paradise or something. Great work!
Longroute (19390) 2008-06-27 1:53
it's a well composed and exposed view (in spite of the too hot and luminous hours). I'ts interesting the way you managed to include the bushes at the right and the propontory at the far end at the left. this gives a good sense of space and depth.
So I really like the photo but... alas, not the beach: too crowded for me! I prefer solitary beaches, when it's possibile!
Have a nice day,
riclopes (35567) 2008-06-27 1:57
What a gorgeous place, Danos. Unfortunately is too full of people for my taste. And it's amazing the size of your yatch, too big for this small, delicate and so beautiful beach. Amazing the color of the water - yes, this is a paradise place and thinking again, may be it's not so crowded...You found a great POV to show this general view. Congrats, it's a great shot.

Une belle composition pour nous faire rêver ! Quelle superbe crique ! Techniquement sans reproche...
jlbrthnn (79773) 2008-06-27 2:15
It is the Paradise known Ground! I like this framing which carries far and lets guess islands. The composition is perfect, and that to say about the colors exacerbated by the sun. Very beautiful and good work.
Have a nice day

Good that you didn't stay at the beach all the time your were there and that you went up the rocks for this very good POV.
chrisnet (21086) 2008-06-27 12:34
Really a dream... I like this wonderful POV with the sea, the roks and the beautiful beach, very good framing and colors.
LamCam (3603) 2008-06-27 13:16
Geia sou Dano,
This has the same wonderful colours and clarity as your Vanitsa photograph. The polariser has done its work well, preserving the deep blue of sea and sky and the lively cloud formation. Without the clouds and the islands in the background this scene would be less effective. Your POV, showing all of the beach is perfect!
MarcT (20946) 2008-06-27 13:38
You're right! It's like a dream, a paradisiac place for ... tourists. Now, not the place I search for, but your picture is good.
papagolf21 (76515) 2008-06-27 14:27
Bonsoir, cher Danos,
Nous avons le droit (pour notre plus grand plaisir) à de superbes photographies, des lieux enchanteurs, des lieux qui font rêver. Il faut donc rendre grâce au photographe pour son talent et sa gentillesse de nous offrir de si belles photos.

This beautiful beach looks like its is well worth the long boat trip.
Fantastic clear colors caught in perfect light that brings out all the rich details the lovely white sand beach that is beautifully framed by the detailed cliffs.
The turquoise color to the sea is incredible with a perfect summer blue sk and distant mountains to top off this beauty.

What a beautiful view of this little beach protected by the mountains. It's really charming and the compo works very well with the big boat as a major focal point. Colours are amazing, simply amazing, as always in your pictures as well as the great quality you always delivered. Another beautiful picture!
Have a great Sunday my friend.

It is a very elegant, illuminated well composition and with a natural magnificent color. This small beach invites to enjoy its wonderful clean and transparent water, and to sunbathing calmly.
I like the good setting and the beauty of the sky with clouds.
It is a very attractive photo and a good divulgative work of the beauty of your country.
PS: Thank you very much for your congratulation, Spain takes the relief of Greece as Champion of Europe. I believe that its good football deserves it.

What a delightful sight ... it is now winter here in NZ and the sight of these warm waters is just so appealing. Beautiful beach and to think it is secluded makes it more special trip to remember. Wonderfully captured and composed. I like the clarity of bright colors and the sharpness of the image. Excellent work! tfs

It is unforunate that all the best places get to be appreciated by everyone so we don't get them to ourselves. That is a big boat to bring a lot of people to a gorgeous little bay. You found an excellent place from wich to take your shot. The composition from your high POV is good, as you were able to include the rocks from both sides of the bay. the colours are beautiful. Well done

Partha_c (2015) 2008-07-01 21:54
Hi Danos. A shot with a bautiful POV and DOF. The contrast of the size of the boat (or a yacht may be) is worth noticing. Yes, the turquoise water is also an addition to beauty. Regards.

Δεν έχω πάει σ' αυτή την παραλία της Λευκάδας, αλλά σίγουρα την επόμενη φορά θα προσπαθήσω να την επθσκευτώ.
Tue (25798) 2008-07-02 8:29
A beautiful view of the beach and sea. The view is well framed by the rocks and slopes on both sides. The ship is well placed in the centre, although also a bit off-centred, which works well. The people on the beach add nice colours with their umbrellas. The light is fine too. Well done!

Angshu (51174) 2008-07-06 20:52
Your country does have amazing places of great beauty & my eyes continue to 'drink' the beauty, as you show us. Like the way how you framed with the two hills on either side with the aquamarine blue of the sea in middle. Being so close to the shore, is it a hydrofoil? The beach umbrellas & people show us the scale. Excellent shot!
jaywalker (16061) 2008-07-07 13:05
Hi Danos, A very beautiful beach scene with a warm welcoming surround, the light & crystal waters are perfect, a nice POV angling into the bay, the centralization of the boat works very well, interesting & busy, kind regards Wilson.

Γειά σου Danos,
It's the kind of view that can make one deciding to visit that region. A dreamy little cove that looks like having been designed by nature to be photographed from the POV you used... Gorgeous colours and clarity! Like you say, that emerald sea is almost a provocation!

pierrefonds (48335) 2008-07-21 17:08
The curve of the beach and the cruise boat are assets to the composition. The presence of the people has an effect of scale. The beach and the sea are nicely frame by the mountains on each side. There is a good contrast between the colors of the sky and the colors of the sea. Have a nice day.
fulvio52 (8314) 2008-11-25 3:02

Δάνο γεια σου,
τι παραλία είναι αυτή,σκέτη μαγεία! Ανυπέρβλητη σκηνή με το πλοιάριο να έχει προσεγγίσει την κλειστή παραλία και με τους ευτυχείς ταξιδιώτες να χαίρονται ταις ομορφιές του Αγιόφυλου.Τα χρώματα και οι λεπτομέρειες της σκηνής είναι εξαιρετικά.
