A nice spot to spend a few hours and watch the sunset from the lighthouse atop the hill at right. This is the first overnight stop of many of the blue cruises or 'gulets' from Fethiye to Demre. St Nicholas lived in the ruined village which clings to the rocky cliffs and hills at right. Who could blame him for living here, rather than the North Pole! St Nicholas is of course better known as Santa Claus.

I have been to Fethiye many years ago and still remember its beauty. Amazing place and you are showing it very cleverly with the summer scene of people taking a swim in the sea and some small boats resting at the pier. Good choice of POV and nicely planned composition.
Well saturated colors and properly given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Chris. How inviting is this scene of clear water, uncrowded enjoyment and pristine nature. Lovely POV which even includes the colourful sandals. Top exposure, enchanting light and colours. Best wishes. Klaudio.

What a wonderful coastline with mountains rising up from sealevel.
Crystal clear water on the foreground and some further it ranges beautifully from green to dark blue.
In my country St. Nicholas was the best known of both ... but the importance of the imported Coca Cola figure increases each year.
Best regards, Paul

This is a beautiful setting, so well captured that we have an understanding of the surrounding land, the weather, the possible relaxations and the wonderful quality of that azure sea.
I like how you have drawn our eyes from the land to the sparkling water via the long jetty.
Mmm, I wish I was there!!
Have a lovely day,

Kind Regards, Ann

That's certainly a perfect place to relax on a hot day. Narrow bay that shows beautiful Greek landscapes around. Perfectly clear water, a little jetty and some boats. And your framing is excellent for showing all this.

An image with a distinctly tropical feel to it. Well composed and benefiting from superb light and colours. Beautifully clear water with a hint of turquoise. Excellent clarity.

Your POV is well chosen here with the pier creating a nice diagonal through the shot. The inclusion of the color sandals adds a good point of interest in the foreground. The lighting is great as is the sharpness and color.

A nice view on this very beautiful cove. The water has incredible colours. Good sharpness too.

Quel endroit plein de charmes. L'eau est d'une superbe limpidité. L'oeil suit la ligne de côte ce qui donne beaucoup de profondeur à la composition. Les voiliers sont très beaux. La lumière est magnifique.

Spectacular nature... Colors and pov are nice... Tfs...

The length of the inlet is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the action of the swimmers. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the boats. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Good evening Chris,
The transparent sea-water caught the first sight, when opened the thumbnail. Beautiful Fjord in blue, boats anchored juxtaposition along and the rocky beack - all collecyted superbly in DOF and fine colors.
Charming location, well rendered.

A very attractive holiday picture with people enjoying themselves in the beautiful surrounding and the pleasant weather. A very fine daily life scene with excellent colours.

I believe you have found Santa Claus's actual residence, instead a charming earthly paradise in a well composed image where my attention is on the pink sandals
Well done, tfs
jjcordier (79297) 2014-07-14 13:17
Quel bel endroit! On comprend facilement pourquoi tous ces bateaux viennent y mouiller.
papagolf21 (106780) 2014-07-14 23:27
Bonjour, cher Chris,
Un lieu paradisiaque où les estivants profitent un maximum de la beauté du paysage et des joies de l'eau transparente et cristalline.
Merci de nous faire rêver d'une aussi belle façon.
mesutilgim (96730) 2014-07-15 2:16
Hello dear Chris,
One of my most beloved corners ! You have captured it with perfect pov and layout.
Hope you had been also at the hilltop with this nice beautiful St Nicolas chapel.
TFS and best regards

this looks idyllic! If Santa lives here then I have been sending all my letters to the wrong place. Glorious image!

I love the turquoise, green, blue colours of the sea. Pure Mediterranean seascape.

fds (9569) 2014-07-28 7:52
dear Chris fantastic location with fantastic blu sea i licke very much this colors of water and very nice composition with this boat and the tourists and great dream
mcmtanyel (26930) 2014-08-24 19:16
The lady lying on her back off the pier proves my point that the Dead Sea is not the only place where one can float. Frankly, I prefer the Mediterranean where one can float and swim in crystalline waters. Lovely shot, TFS!
