Kea (Greek: Κέα), also known as Gia or Tzia (Greek: Τζια), s a Greek island in the Cyclades archipelago in the Aegean Sea. Kea is part of the Kea-Kythnos regional unit. Its capital, Ioulis, is inland at a high altitude (like most ancient Cycladic settlements, for fear of pirates) and is considered quite picturesque. Other major villages of Kea are the port of Korissia and the fishing village of Vourkari. After suffering depopulation for many decades, Kea has been recently rediscovered by Athens as a convenient destination for weekends and yachting trips. The population in 2011 was 2,455.
It is the island of the Cyclades complex that is closest to Attica (about 1 hour by ferry from Lavrio) and is also 20 km (12 mi) from Cape Sounio as well as 60 km (37 mi) SE of Athens. Its climate is arid, and its terrain is hilly. Kea is 19 km (12 mi) long from north to south and 9 km (6 mi) wide from west to east. The area is 129 km2 (50 sq mi) with the highest point being 560 m (1,837 ft) above sea level
The municipality Kea includes the island of Makronisos to the northwest.

Beautiful house, wonderful alley.
I like POV and composition.
Super pastel colours.

SnapRJW (29302) 2013-07-18 4:25
The warm yellow is eye-catching and inviting here Danos and this quiet corner with the potted plants is beautifully composed and managed. Warm regards Rosemary
adramad (35433) 2013-07-18 4:40
How wonderful corner, with this fascinating mix of colors, the POV is great including the two lanterns and a bit of curve to give perspective street.
Nice day gives you this beautiful range of colors.
Magnificent light and also very good sharpness, which allows us to see fine details.
Very well done. I love it.
Enjoy a nice day.
sabermonajati (8919) 2013-07-18 5:01
pleasant and fondle eye architecture you captured.
timecapturer (45309) 2013-07-18 5:09
a shot full of the character and wonderfully original beauty of your homeland. Love the light and textures here with all the elements perfectly placed and balanced to great effect. Hot as Greece here in England today but would gladly be enjoying your sun than ours. Glorious!
bona (12239) 2013-07-18 5:15
yes it is a beautiful house. I like the façade color and the details of lamps and doors. I like this Greek architecture style very characteristic from this country.
Sergiom (54693) 2013-07-18 5:18
En effet, elle est bien belle cette maison jaune. Elle doit se démarquer avantageusement de ses voisines. Même les fleurs sont coordonnées. Un beau cadrage vertical des plus réussi.
kato (11630) 2013-07-18 5:43
You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see lovely house with Greek color. It shows good balance of yellow, creamy, brown/green, too. And. the lamp setting on the wall draws out an additional tasteful effect.
jurek1951 (40949) 2013-07-18 5:58
this is a real nice sharp and colorful architecture photography,Good details and textures.
dkmurphys (46408) 2013-07-18 5:59

ourania (26560) 2013-07-18 8:08
πολύ όμορφο το σπίτι με τη χαρακτηριστική αλλά και πάντα πρωτότυπη αρχιτεκτονική. Είναι πολύ ενδιαφέρων και γοητευτικός ο τρόπος που προσπαθούν οι άνθρωποι να κάνουν τα σπίτια τους να ξεχωρίσουν σε πυκνοχτισμένες νησιώτικες γειτονιές σαν αυτή. Θαυμάσια σύνθεση σε κάθετο κάδρο, αληθινές υφές και χαριτωμένες λεπτομέρειες. Πάνω απ' όλα φως και χρώματα! Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

Geia sou Danos
Warm tones painted, enlighted by warm lighting; that is exactly what is needed for a strong incentive to a visit in Kea-loulis with the stated goal of discovering local exotism!
Outstanding allover depiction despite difficult sun angle.
Indrasish (2805) 2013-07-18 8:33
Great shot here.. Superb composition and nice vertical frame.. I like the yellow wall.. Excellent image quality too.. Thanks for your informative notes.. Great job..
Good night and wish you all the best..
Noel_Byrne (20902) 2013-07-18 8:52
That is indeed a beautiful house, and what makes it even more appealing is the excellent angle you chose to portray it from. The color looks splendid against that deep blue sky and the light and shadows are perfect. This house could be an advertisement for this town!
All the best
ikeharel (52433) 2013-07-18 8:53
Magnificent the mustard-yellow color of the facade, green one wooden door in contrast and the other in red/brown, with the plants in front. The owner looks to have good taste.
The small alley is shown on side's with good clarity and depth.
Fine spotted and well rendered the scene. Lovely.
cornejo (28129) 2013-07-18 10:10

Miguel82 (20410) 2013-07-18 10:54
Charming yellow house color Danos,
A picture well framed and clear
I like the decorative plants and the lamps
pierrefonds (55002) 2013-07-18 13:37
The flower pot is helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the façades of the houses. There is a good contrast between the colours of the picture. Have a nice day.
krzychu30 (15332) 2013-07-18 13:40
your title captures perfectly what we see-the house is really beauitful.Very colorful and picturesque.I like the way the yellow color contrasts so nicely with white and blue shades.Additionally the play of light&shade brings some more charm into the image.
Well composed and executed shot!

good title, yes, house is beautiful. I like the facade and entrance through the two doors. Good vertical composition. Fine colors and light also.
Have a nice day.
emka (73391) 2013-07-18 23:43
Hi Danos, it is indeed very beautiful house, although so simple. But it can be also in Mediterranean, with such a wonderful light. so peaceful and full of sun. Probably all wet for siesta and only crazy photographer goes around with a camera. nice stairs, and flowers in big pots... Simply marvelous.
Angshu (54763) 2013-07-19 3:37
The lemon coloured facade of the house makes it attractive, nicely contrasting with the leaf green and the red in the BG. The path creates a good lead-in. Liked the lamp against the sky. Well done!
abmdsudi (39716) 2013-07-19 3:45
This is excellent, You really have captured the reality of this place so well, the extra details in the fg adds interest to the overall scene. Well done.
eldancer1 (25250) 2013-07-19 7:51
It is unique but beautiful color for a house! Nicely captured with good pov showing the sturdy doors and partly cloudy sky. Good details. Well done, tfs.
josepmarin (57517) 2013-07-19 11:04
yes, I agree with the title you given to the photo, it's a very beautiful house.
I like its vivid yellow color and its contrast with the green and red doors, and the nice elements as the lampposts, the plants and the flowers.
The narrow street, the great game of light and shades, and the wonderful colours complete an excellent composition.
Best regards, my friend,
Sonata11 (33161) 2013-07-19 11:31
Hi dear Danos,
Wow! OMG! this is impressive POV which looking at this pic I realized is an amazingly beautiful architecture and the striking beautiful colors. I really love it. Awesome !!! Congrats.
All the best from hot Texas and have a great WE,
fabbs99 (15747) 2013-07-19 13:06
I love the colors of Greece and this shot of yours does not let me down in anyways.Greece may be very small as a country but no one can take away its history and heritage.Hats off to Aristotle and all other luminaries to have been born there and lived there.Long live Greece and its culture.TFS.
nikkitta (13320) 2013-07-19 13:27
So, not all houses in Greece are white and blue?
Nice and interesting architecture and original POV in diagonal
Good to include the wall lamp
Thanks for the post and note
Have a great week end
jmdias (52728) 2013-07-19 17:20

mcmtanyel (10591) 2013-07-19 19:42
Dark blue sky and yellow facade, who wouldn't like it? Especially a Fenerbahçe fan like myself! Brilliant colors and pretty shapes.
mvdisco (17660) 2013-07-19 20:50
Bonjour Danos, hi,

Kalimera dear Danos
I love these bright yellow tones and how they contrast with the blue sky. The architectural style is so characteristic. Excellent details and I like your choice of the vertical frame. A very summery, inviting photo, congratulations.
shevchenko (19051) 2013-07-21 20:39
Beautiful facade in vivid color, good pov and good frame to show it, lovely potted plants and old lamps on the wall, distinct photo under bright sunlight, good shoot.

maloutim (9627) 2013-07-22 4:41
I love these beautiful bright colours which must make people's lives brighter too !
Lovely POV on the house and the beginning of the back street, letting us guess that there is a nice walk to be taken in the shade.
Urs (14082) 2013-07-22 9:34
I always like your bold colour tone contrast, here the yellow, white and the blue because you shoot most of the time with the sun, what helps to keep the colour hues vivid. Well done
Silvio1953 (116071) 2013-07-22 10:43
Ciao Danos, great view of lovely house, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful mediterranean colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Δάνο, πανέμορφο σπίτι όντως, με εντυπωσιακό χρώμα, φωτεινό να το λούζει ο ήλιος και η φωτογραφία σου μοναδική να αποτυπώνει τήν ομορφιά του..
Η φωτο σου είναι παλιά και δεν είσαι Κέα...να περνάς καλά στο Πήλιο λοιπόν...εγώ σε επισκέπτομαι καθημερινά...

Nice view of the yellow house.
Excellent composition and perspective, nice house with lamps shown on the wall.
marina7 (8049) 2013-07-26 8:42
the color palette is the most attractive feature here, the yellow stucco of the wall is very eye-catching and in perfect harmony with the other hues. Very good angle too, lovely presentation.
My best wishes!
Kielia (22913) 2013-07-26 9:26
a simple but beautiful impression of this cozy house with a fantastic atmosphere created by the Mediterranean light and the moody colors. The composition is excellent! My compliments!

Δάνο γεια σου,
πολύ καλό το σφικτό κάδρο της φωτογραφίας σου με το βαμμένο σπίτι στα κίτρινα να προκαλεί ένα πολύ όμορφο αποτέλεσμα για το σκηνικό.Το φως αναδεικνύει τις λεπτομέρειες όπως και την ποιότητα της φωτογραφίας,
claudeD (30545) 2013-07-31 6:42

It is a beautiful indeed. I also like very much the warm yellow color. The doors with deep green and red also complement well with the yellow. Excellent quality photo showing the beautiful and charming houses on the island.
mkamionka (29259) 2013-08-01 13:53
beautiful corner so nicely decorated. I like how you have presented it in a great light and lovely vivid colors. Stairs, plants in pots and the lamps make great decorative elements here.
Very well seen and captured,
wolf38 (30322) 2013-08-02 12:16
Hello Danos. This is a wonderful photo with fantastic colors. The dominiernde yellow and the blue sky perfectly complement each other. Yes, the Mediterranean flair is beautiful. Rgds, Wolfgang.
jcpix (11478) 2013-08-13 14:36
This is incredibly rich in texture and color, a well suited corner of the village for a sunny day opportunity. :) Most impressive is the exposure, all of the shaded areas are well lit to show detail while the highlights are evenly balanced and also render the same detail throughout. Love those doors, the darker and rustic colors are subtle, but still make a their presence visible among the bright yellow. Simply beautiful, and thoughtfully arranged for to fill the frame with interest from top to bottom. Nicely done once again. Have a great day ahead.
dip (23520) 2013-08-22 5:22
Γειά σου Δάνο,

Beautifully made, Danos!
