This photo has been taken very early in the morning when the sun lights the wall of the buildings and gives them nice warm tones.
Parga lies on the Ionian coast between the cities of Preveza and Igoumenitsa. It is a resort town known for its scenic beauty. It is not far away from Lefkada, so I decided to go there for two days trip and did not get disappointed. This photo has been taken from the castle which is located on the hill right in the centre of Parga. Very easy to access it provides excellent view from almost every side.
More info: City amphitheatrically built, Parga is a picturesque resort situated between the coastal region of Preveza and Igoumenitsa and combines uniquely mountain and sea. One of the most picturesque and cosmopolitan places in northwestern Greece, the “Bride of Epirus”, the beautiful Parga challenges you to experience up close its long history, its diverse natural beauty and hospitality of its inhabitants. Parga is at a distance of 65 km. from the airport of Aktion – Preveza and the summer months is connected with the surrounding islands (Paxos – Antipaxos – Corfu) (wikipedia)

That early light really does work wonders on these buildings, making them glow like gold against that vivid blue sky. I love to sea towns spread over the hills like this, and this is a beautiful example. Not a big city, but a wonderful urban scene nonetheless. The sea is like liquid silver!
My eye is drawn to that green structure as well, I guess a building under construction?
All the best

sei tornata in TE e con il tuo riapparire anche le belle foto che ti accompagnano.
Questa mi piace in maniera particolare perchè io sono un patito dell'alba e della luce calda di queste prime ore della giornata,
Con un simile soggetto sei stata molto brava nel cogliere al meglio il calore della luce sulle case variopinte che si affacciano ul porto, senza per questo trascurare una composizione perfetta . Splendido anche il cielo con il suo azzurro intenso ed molto buona anche la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona domenica

Another photo from Parga with absolutely stunning colours. The morning light makes the water look like a mixture of gold and silver and the houses climbing the hillside seem to feature every colour possible, all with a marvellously warm tone. This is a very well taken and well saturated photo.

Hi Kamila, lovely view of this pleasant villa with its beautiful rays of morning sun, with good perspective perfectly captured in this lovely photograph. An interesting picture with a nice light, good sharpness, depth and quality. A great and beautiful work well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
PaulVDV (29787) 2013-10-27 11:11
A beautiful light that creates very warm tones on the buildings making them contrast well with the blue sky.
Excellent view of this town from on the water. The boat at the right adds more depth.
Best regards, Paul

Très belle mise en image qui s'apparente à une peinture.
J'aime la douceur des couleurs. La beauté bien évidemment du sujet.
Une très belle réussite.

Well captured golden moment. The sunlight is quite charming over the houses facades. Well seen, have a good week ahead.

un'alba dorata che splende su tutto il paesaggio, molto bello il panorama vista così.
Mi piace quella parte di cielo che hai lasciato, aiuta a migliorare anche i riflessi sul mare.

witaj Kamilka, kto rano wstaje... Opłaca sie robic zdjęcia raniutko, bo jakie piekne światlo wtedy mamy. A jesienią, to juz nie jest tak wcześnie.
Fascynujące miejsce, te domy tak tłoczą sie jeden nad drugim. super zdjecie.

The randomly scattered building here provide a very attractive pattern and colours, like a cubistic painting. Very fine colours!
arnie (1805) 2013-10-28 4:12
Lovely sun drenched buildings bringing out the colours of this magical place. Evokes memories of a great holiday. To the left of your shot just above the blue building there is a narrow orange building with 6 balconies this is a great place to enjoy a few cold Mythos and take in the views.

It's a very beautiful morning indeed. Nice thing is you included a speed boat at corner. This is an excellently composed picture.

Takie amfiteatralne ułożenie na zboczu zawsze mi się podobalo, a ciepłe światło tez robi swoje, piękne zdjęcie
jcpix (13930) 2013-10-28 16:36
There's just something magical about the early morning light, isn't there...and it's amazing how it can transform the scenery from common to pure delight. A wonderful capture indeed, the timing is perfect to achieve the most warm and pleasing atmosphere...and the deep blue sky is the perfect compliment of color and contrast. Always difficult to decide whether to photograph the moment, or sit back and soak it all up. :) I can see you did one, and I hope the other followed! Beautiful image with clarity and detail, nicely done. Have a great day ahead.

Hi Kamila - Attractive warm light bounces off the colourful buildings here. I love the way they are tiered right up to the blue sky and each one is related in style to its neighbour and yet clearly individual. TFS and warm regards Rosemary

Beautiful panorama on the town, I like all these colors for these houses, well framed with the water in the FG.

As always an incredibly beautiful image of Greece! I love the warm light that makes the colors seem alive. The architecture of all the houses built up like a nest is a very attractive subject for the camera! keep posting :)
All the best,

Marvelous capture; the clarity, warm tones and superbly composed where focus is centred on those colourful cluster of uniquely compact houses on the slopes The fg and blue sky complement complements the whole shot attractively. Excellent, TFS
