Winter is very quiet on our island but it can be beautiful too.
This is the southern end of the bay of Alinda and part of the port of Ayia Marina.
Thank you for visiting

I like your large sky in this capture of your home Island, a beautiful and calm image, subdued colouring.
Well managed and presented, Tfs, and have a good Tuesday.

I like the composition of this image by giving the most part of your space to the sky. Well done, have a fine day.

More than anything I like the soft colours here Ourania. We are used to seeing Greece in bright light but here the mood is quite different. I think the simple details here allow the beauty of sky and sea to shine though. Nicely done. Warm regards Rosemary

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and bright tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the houses and the lighthouse with elegant shape. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color & light balance. And, the sky with floating clouds draw out an additional good atmosphere, too.
Well done my friend.
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.

There are indeed many shades of blue in this picture, together with a fine view of the buildings along the water. It looks very pleasant here, no sign of winter at all!

The title is very accurate, but I also see a lot of shades of grey in this fine view. It's a well composed photo with a well deserved prominence to the nice sky. I think a meteorologist could make some interesting predictions from these clouds of such various colours and layers.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
πραγματικά Χειμερινή η παρουσίαση του θαλασσινού σου τοπίου με τη βαριά συννεφιά,να σκοτεινιάζει το λιμάνι της Αγίας Μαρίνας.
Η τοποθέτηση του ακρωτηρίου στο κάδρο,είναι εξαιρετική που με το λίγο φως της ημέρας να μπορούμε να δούμε την τοποθεσία.

Le cadrage vertical est superbe.Il donne beaucoup d'espace au ciel. La côte est très belle et d'une grande netteté dans l'ensemble. J'aime bien le ciel gris qui ajoute une belle touche nostalgique .

here is a nice composition which is simple but looking so nice for its simplicity. Great variation of blue indeed. Superbly presented. Tfs.

The clouds gave a mild and a bit of melancholic blue tones over the bay, Ouranis.
At least 3 diff. blue colors are marvelousely clear in the scenery.
Superb sharp photo, DOF to the other side of the bay show well the red roof-tops and light-tower on the stretch of land out to sea.
Nice and charming dusk, Kalispera,

So peaceful looking scene! The vertical format worked well with the composition. I like the lighting and the wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Ourania, I like this good picture of this pretty interesting and a beautiful sky, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

I would never have taken photo like that with so much space given to the sky and sea, but you just proved me very wrong. The achieved by you result is lovely and sometimes less really means more. I shall try this idea next time when I have similar opportunity and the sky is as picturesque as the one on this photo.
Great colors of the peninsula and buildings on it.
Thanks for sharing

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimak i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa oblacima koji donose kisu.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view and a second ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely shown the place and the moment the clouds that bring rain.
A nice moment.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.

Un grand espace dans ce format verticale laisser a un ciel superbe, ou en effet il y a de jolies nuances de bleu, j'aime les couleurs de la cote, la netteté, une présentation très belle et réussie a tout point vue
Romano46 (18472) 2014-01-21 11:12
la composizione ed i colori sono straordinari.
L'evidenza data al cielo e completata dalla presenza del mare rispetto alla terra a mio parere rende la foto particolarmente interessante, perchè rende assai bene l'aspetto stagionale del paesaggio.
Eccellente anche la nitidezza e gradevolissimi i colori sia nella parte aerea che in quella terrestre.
Ciao e buona serata

Hello dear Ourania,
Good idea to leave greater space to this "photogenic" sky !
Portrait format was a good choice.
TFS and best regards

Hello Ourania ,
I like especially here the atmosphere created by the light of end of the day . You've given a large place to the sky : it deserves it .
jcpix (13726) 2014-01-21 19:05
Well, anything with the color blue will grab my attention...and the title and image only enhances that appeal for me! :) This is wonderful use of the big sky, and a well suited photo opportunity for a vertical frame to stretch it even further. The soft light and range of tones is just superb, a classic example of where "less is more." You had some great clouds to work with, and the controlled exposure has brought out the definitions of subtle light, helping to create some additional depth and dimension. Simple and beautiful, speaks very well to the composition. Enjoy the day ahead.
I'm having some issues with my account this evening, it won't allow me to leave any forum messages!? I wanted to say 'thanks' for the comprehensive and well written (as always) comment you left for me earlier today on my recent car picture. Much appreciated. :)

Nicely titled, definitely quiet a few attractive shades of blue over here. I like the calm and tranquil atmosphere in this photo. The last light on those houses on the shores is nicely breaking the dominance of blue. I was thinking too much of the sky was shown in this photo, but on second thoughts I feel that the lovely cloud formations deserved the space allowed. Very elegant and beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing.
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-01-22 1:38
these different shades of blue are perfectly combined and make together truly delightful scenery for the little port of Ayia Marina.The nature can create something beautiful spectacle,but it would be nothing without your photo skills and perfectly selected exposure(I have often problems with that and have to try many pictures till I have the result I like).
Beautiful and dreamy capture!
Wish You a nice day

Ciao Ourania, bella e rilassante, favoloso cielo, splendida la luce sulle case, brava, ciao Silvio

Another lovely view from your beloved island. Your note raises the question in my mind, what is the main economic activity of Leros? I am going to guess tourism and fishing, but other than that, is there any agriculture or any other industry?
abmdsudi (45644) 2014-01-22 22:09
I think it's good that you had noticed how beautiful the sky deserving of the space afforded to it which was then converted in a nice photo. The coastline adds the sense of depth, good composition, colour and detail. Well done, tfs
Kielia (24073) 2014-01-23 7:55
first of all I like your idea of this high sky a lot. It adds very moody colors to this typical seaside scene. The light is also very pleasant. And you have captured a fantastic atmosphere. My compliments also for the excellent composition!
jemaflor (88125) 2014-01-24 9:01
Nice view and beautiful blue tones, well framed with a vertical format, tfs.
