A little after 9.30 in the morning, "Patmos Star" has brought passengers from Lipsi to Ayia Marina, Leros. Lipsi is a beautiful island, smaller than Leros and very close. Although it's self reliant as far as fish, meat and vegetables are concerned, its inhabitants have to travel to nearby Leros to see doctors, do transactions in banks or the tax office, do their shopping, see relatives who live here now. In the afternoon the boat takes them back to their island.
In the summer the boat takes visitors from one island to the other. Since Leros is the only of the three islands that has an airport, the ferry's times are very convenient for those who wish to procceed from Leros to the other two destinations.
"Patmos Star" makes the itinerary Patmos-Lipsi-Leros and back three times a week. For the other days of the week there are other means.
Thanks for stopping by.

Color of blue sky and its reflection in the water, the masterpiece of nature. Ship and Mountains to the beautiful background image on the display and an excellent record.
Have a nice evening

ciao carissima, il blu intenso di mare e cielo è veramente abbagliante, ed è splendido vedere il traghetto bianco che spicca in questo meraviglioso specchio d'acqua. Eccellente la qualità della foto.
Un caro abbraccio

ottima composizione, cielo e mare (bellissimi i colori) ben divisi dalla terra che insieme al traghetto si riflettono nell'acqua.
Ottima la qualità e bella luce.

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
Πολύ όμορφη φωτογραφία με εξαιρετική καθαρότητα και ζωντανά χρώματα, υπέροχο ουρανό, φως και αντανακλάσεις.

Well composed using the rule of thirds with good sharpness & wonderful reflections. I like the dominant blue & white colors. The big boat at right makes a fine focal point. The jet trail adds interest to the sky. Tfs!

A beautifully composed and calming and restful shot with the most glorious vibrant colours!
Your composition is excellent, the boat being perfectly placed in the frame. The reflections of the boat in the calm water are wonderful and the details and sharpness are exquisite. And what a sky! - even that jet trail in the sky adds interest to its otherwise gorgeous deep blue.

You're capturing well this marina by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to seecCruise ship which is at anchor in the harbor and peninsula of the island in behind. It's impressive in clean blue color of both of sea and sky, too. And, the reflection projected to the sea draws out a good effect as well as flow clouds in the sky.
Have a nice weekend.

A lovely fresh seascape - very calming colours and wonderful reflection on the ship, fine achieved contrast as well. I like the simplicity of the composition and the elements I think this adds to the peaceful mood, with little something in the sky which trigger the attraction. Well done

traveling by ferry is a very interesting and exciting matter. I remember very well the times when there was a ferry from Schleswig-Holstein to the island of Funen in Denmark which I have frequented quite often. Your POV works very well and the fresh colors and the bright light are wonderful. Your interesting note made me curious to learn more about these islands!

Che splerndida foto, colpisce subito l'ottima definizione e la bellissima luce, la scena è perfettamente inquadrata..bella la nave e il suo riflesso e questa striscia di terra che divide il bellissimo mare da questo meraviglioso cielo, veramente un ottimo scatto...

Ουρανία γεια σου,
όμορφη και γαλήνια σκηνή με το Patmos Star να είναι έτοιμο να κάνει την ημερήσια διαδρομή του από τους Λειψούς στη Αγία Μαρίνα.Μου αρέσει η χρωματική απόδοση της σκηνής, με την αντανάκλαση του πλοίου στην επιφάνεια τηε ήρεμης θάλασσας να συμπηρώνει την σκηνή.

This is another lovely contribution; being more than a photo with your impressive and eloquent storytelling. What I like most here is the perfectly balanced composition; everything is in their most optimal places and nothing is left to chance, even the jet trail in the sky makes an appealing contribution to the overall composition. IMHO, this is technically one of your most succesfull photos regarding masterful lighting, perfect sharpness, unexagerrated delightful colors, extraordinary clarity and depth. The hazy reflections of Patmos Star is another great aspect of this wonderful photo. Thanks for sharing my friend. Have a lovely week.

Grande cura nella composizione scenica.
Classica isola mediterranea di origine vulcanica ..
UN ambiente ostile e gente risoluta.
Un paradiso per i turisti.

imbarcazione protagonista dello scatto in mezzo ad un bel mare blu.
Costa che chiude la scena e cielo che regala una scia bianca a rendere ancora più particolare la foto,

Shining vessel on morning light, mirror on smooth surface, and in excelent contrast to the land beyond.
Fine shot, good clear details and blue diff. colors.
Enjoy a nice sunday.

A beautiful surrounding and a picture with nice
open spaces (that makes the picture nice calmness)
and with nice layers (creates a nice depth).
Light management is also great.
A nice option (not an improvement) is to cut
a piece up and below, than you creates a nice
