the storks on the roofs
I came across this rare scene A storks is sitting on top of the roofs of the church watching the surroundings
Maybe it is searching for a place to build its new nest
These are scenes that are rare in our days espsecially in big cities So we have to protect these rare species of birds if we want to conserve them

Unique roof top architecture for the towers tile patterns, and a bonus with the storks in view.
When the bells ring, do the storks fly away?
Thanks for sharing,

l'architettura è molto bella e le cicogne aggiungono interesse all'osservatore, da noi sono rare.
Incredibile il groviglio di cavi elettrici che si vedono.

ζουνε στο πιο ομορφο μέρος κι εκει θα φτιάξουν την φωλιά τους μέσα στήν απόλυτη ηρεμία και γαλήνη του τοπίου!!
μακριά απο τήν πόλη ειναι εκει που αγαλλιάζει η ψυχή και σταματάει ο γρήγορος ρυθμός τής σκέψης!!

Bonsoir, cher Costantino,
Riche idée de réaliser un cadrage serré sur les clochers et campanile et surtout sur les cigognes qui ont élu domicile.
Beauté architecturale et beauté animale.

This time you got two birds with one shot :) along with the superb view of the architecture and an interesting view of the bells. Beautiful colours and contrast with the clear blue background.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Quite interesting to see those storks who have chosen church domes for nesting places. This also shows a good view of architectural details. I wonder what those birds like about bell tolls, that seem to be coming after ten minutes.

une image bien sympathique avec ces cygognes.
L'architecture est très belle, dans une agréable présentation

Details shown marvelousely under favorable light and in fine clarity.

J'aime beaucoup ce plan serré sur les clochers roses ainsi que la compression de l'image. La netteté des détails est impeccable et j'aime la lumière en diagonale.

What a fine and interesting photo, combining the lovely storks with the fine towers and dome of the church. Storks really build their nests in spectacular places. The mildly blue sky creates a perfect background. I notice that the church clock says 11:50, while the photo info says 12:15. So is your camera wrong, or did the priest forget to adjust the clock?

Attractive scene with lots of symbolism with the stork sitting on the cross here.
Are storks in your parts only on the passing trough or is there a fix population in Greece?
In our parts, storks are such a common sight in summer, only a few hundred meters from my house I can see them almost every day in summer. In winter they migrate to Africa to escape the cold here.
On our recent visit to Morocco we have seen many storks as well on the roofs of Marrakesh, maybe there where our friends from home?
have a great weekend

I still am amazed to see storks like this in the wild, not a creature I see here in Ireland. And a better surrounding could not be asked for that the three fine towers of this beautiful church.
He is the king of his castle and he surveys all that around him! Great shot.
Thanks as always

Votre sens de l'observation a été récompensé. Tout d'abord, la belle architecture des toits avec de belles couleurs. Puis, la présence de ces cigognes. Que demander de mieux pour réaliser une belle photo comme celle-ci. Bravo.

Ciao caro Costantino
Che bello vedere che anche i vostri uccelli vanno in chiesa per la messa :) Hai catturato un'architettura stupenda, e, con gli uccelli, anche un momento decisive. Complimentoni e ti auguro una bella domenica.
Un caro saluto

Tout bon dimanche

Hello Costantino, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with interesting ceilings and storks, nicely 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 evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
corjan3 (2095) 2014-04-27 8:07
Beautiful shapes and patterns with the storks adding value to this pleasant image. The wires do not exactly enhance the lovely architecture but what can one do? Definitely worth my two points. Well captured.
kato (11630) 2014-05-01 8:45
You're capturing well this church by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the church with three red tiled roofs. Each part has the interesting feather, so the left has bell at inside, the middle has storks on the roof, and the right has a clock at outside and bell at inside. And, it's tasteful that this church use a warm color on facade.
serp2000 (40654) 2014-05-08 4:29
The storks are always very attractive for people. But the roof's ribbing makes this composition more interesting, impressive graphic, gorgeous composition. I also like thise nice soft colors. Well seen.
Greetings from Ural,
