The lovely town Parga with its 2500 inhabitants is situated on the north west coast of Greece, in an idyllic bay on the foot of the Epirus Mountains. It is one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. In spring a lot of wild flowers bloom and the landscape stays all summer long nice and green. Behind the coast with lots of bays and long sandy beaches are olive groves and pine woods. High above Parga are the ruins of a venetian castle situated, from up there you have a gorgeous view over the coast with its numerous islands and bays for bathing, swimming and relaxing.
The most known island is the "Panagia-Island" the "Virgin Mary-Island" which is just outside the harbour, to its honour every year on the 15th of August Parga celebrates a big town festival with music and huge fire works.
This picture has been taken from the castle.

Quelle vue de ces deux îles séparée avec un édiffice qui ressort en blanc avec le toit ocre superbe et la montagne en fond ce ciel que c'est beau.
Bravo et amitié

non avevo mai visto questo luogo, fantastico il tuo pov, si riesce ad apprezzare a pieno il paesaggio con le due curiose e originali isole.
Bella inquadratura e bella composizione, una bella condivisione.

A very impressive landscape scene! The red roof adds a good colour accent in the picture.

That is the place where I grew up, at a time when there were no tourists at all there... my mother was offered the whole beach front lands in Valtos for 100$, and unfortunately, she did not buy it!
We lived there from 1959 until 1973.... so i know every stone there!
I would maybe have framed a bit more to the right, to get the entire island...? Also 1/40 and f22 sounds quite slow shutter speed, but you did not shake and sharpness is ok!
Royaldevon (33785) 2014-07-03 3:11
A great sense of depth created by the trees in the f/g and the boat leading us across the frame.
It is a lovely composition of this very beautiful location, sharply captured under a great light.
Have a good day,

You have shown us such fine photos from this area, and written so enthusiastically about it, that it has entered my list of possible "places to see". This photo is just as good as the earlier ones, with intense but natural colours, a splendid view and a carefully balanced composition with cleverly included treetops at the bottom.
fabbs99 (16819) 2014-07-03 5:34
Great shot of the colorful image of the Parga's Panagia Island.A nice and interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, beautiful light and color. Very well done,TFS.
Giustiniani (3630) 2014-07-03 5:43
un petit coin tranquille, superbe paysage sous une belle lumière. Une photo qui donne envie de voyager.
Sergiom (68572) 2014-07-03 6:08
Quel beau point de vue sur cette petite île.On la voit bien dans son ensemble avec le point focal sur le toit rouge de la maison. J'aime beaucoup le ballet des embarcations autour et la couleur de l'eau.
miumiu (6113) 2014-07-03 6:39
Wonderful view and colours!
The trees are impressive in the foreground.
The colours of the sky are very interesting.
l love the tiny islands with the small house/chapel.
Very lovely capture!

Hello Kamila, very nice image here, Greece is such a wonderful country. I love the quality of the image. Good sharpness in the composition. What can i say about the landscape except that it's wonderful. Good take.
ikeharel (63815) 2014-07-03 8:53
The fabulous earth formation superbly shown on photo, Kamila, taken from a high hill overlooking the bay entrance.
A well lit and saturated image, summer's end still with much green trees, and the mountain on far side looks as cut on water's-edge.
Beautiful location, well collected scenery.
asajernigan (21427) 2014-07-03 9:08
This is a fine photo! The inclusion of the trees in the foreground gives the photo a nice sense of depth. The boats add direction and interest in the scene. The red roofed building provides a nice central point of interest.
Thanks for sharing,
chrislo (4155) 2014-07-03 13:27
Great viewpoint showing the scenic beauty of the landscape. The coastline reminds me a little of the Corfu coast with the forested hillsides and the little church by the sea. The image is well balanced and composed making it very pleasing to the eye. Nice depth created by the BG mountains and beautiful shades of blue in the sea. Very good work.
photoray (13719) 2014-07-03 16:05
Beautiful scene of Parga with landscaped islands among the calm attractive Aegean waters with a glimpse of the village, and distant mountains.
Would enjoy sailing here for sure.
Thanks for sharing,
federico (3156) 2014-07-03 17:44
hello kamila wonderfull panoramic picture, an amazing place you show us with a perfect composition full of colors with a quite warm light
jjcordier (79275) 2014-07-03 22:48
L'endroit est vraiment beau et les propriétaires de la maison sont vraiment des privilégiés. Beau point de vue pour une excellente photo.
macjake (62256) 2014-07-04 0:09
well, Castle views are often the best because they want the higher ground to see far away...this photo proves that exactly.
seems like you encountered some harsh light on the right. But in all honesty its not that bad because the rest of the scene is beautiful and captures our attention away from that harsh light. It's hardly noticeable.
lovely colors in the water too. nice shot once again.
mesutilgim (89700) 2014-07-04 3:28
Hello dear Kamila
Nice capture from Parga which is quite important in the Ottoman history as well.
Very good pov and layout.
TFS and best regards
timecapturer (49288) 2014-07-04 4:23
picture postcard view of this little gem of a resort. Full of Greek charm and that light that seems to pervade this part of the Greek coastline. Beautiful and irresistible.
Have a good weekend - B.
HimalAnda (10323) 2014-07-04 11:28
This is a nice place, with the little house lost on the island.
It should be nice to be there.
Noel_Byrne (27740) 2014-07-04 11:59
What a beautiful place, it is like something from an ancient legend! The little house smack in the centre of the scene is very beautiful and is really the focal point, but beyond that what an extensive and magnificent view! Wonderful photo, thanks for sharing
abmdsudi (47526) 2014-07-04 12:07
It is a spectacular panorama with lovely sweeping view of the bay, taken from an impressive elevated point with the eye popping red amongst the deep blue and green serves as effective point of focus bundled with lot more interest around. Colours, clarity and exposure are nicely rendered to your best while we get the feel of immense depth and space. A breath taking image so expertly taken, Congrats, TFS.
My only is the sky colour on the right needs correction to appear more representative.
pajaran (55539) 2014-07-04 13:05

Nice panoramic photo, with the hill providing great context and the mountains in the background adding depth. Beautiful shot of the sea and the boat.
Have a great weekend.
Cricri (111977) 2014-07-05 5:02
Ton POV depuis le château offre une vue imprenable sur ce très beau paysage, la petite maison est un rêve pour ces propriétaires, j'aimerai habiter là :-)
très jolie présentation
SnapRJW (31627) 2014-07-05 5:25
Hello Kamila - A marvellous scene taken from an ideal vantage point, the small building positioned between the two rocky, tree-covered outcrops makes a super focal point in this attractive shot.
williewhistler (15681) 2014-07-05 6:16
the high view point has served you very well allowing you to compose a very attractive scene with the boats in the bay and the centrally situated white building making nice contributions.
A fine interpretation of the location and it`s environment.
Kind regards Les.
shreya2000 (1816) 2014-07-05 22:47
Excellent picture taken by you!!!
The colours are really very nice. Absolutely charming scenery. Nice place to visit. The hotel is really in the center of the island.
Thanks for sharing.
SWEETFREEDOM (23854) 2014-07-06 0:23
lovely view, i like the little buildings among the rocks, good colors.
ChrisJ (105419) 2014-07-06 11:13
Looks similar to the seaside around Fethiye in Turkey. Good layering with excellent sharpness and superb color and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the yellow green and the blue sea and sky. The boats add depth and focal points. Tfs!
PiotrF (11802) 2014-07-06 16:07
Piekny nadmorski widok, skaly schodzace do wody niczym jak w fiordach a do tego niesamowity kolor wody. Niezla zacheta do odwiedzenia tego miejsca.
Dobry kadr, ladnie poukladane w kadrze
jhm (145092) 2014-07-07 5:25
Your pictures are always very well and real nice catered.
Also these is a pleasure to look at
This is a wonderful panorama view about these area.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Excellent composition and nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,
Oceania (5202) 2014-07-07 6:12
Pictures of Greece are your signature. I like the sort of islands in the middle of the sea. The scenery is very inviting. You present it very well. Thanks for showing us.
Have a nice week.

Ciao Kamila, lovely composition with nice island, wonderful colors, great POV, good clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
ourania (37288) 2014-07-07 11:38
back to Greece with a very attractive landscape from Parga. You used a very effective, elevated vantage point and created an elegant composition that fills the frame and offers great depth. I like very much the layout of the land and the vegetation, the islands seem to be "resting" on the sea so calmly. The colours are very delightful, I think that the light has given to the right side tonalities similar to those of the sea and this homogeneity works in a pleasant way. I also like the reflections. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
jcpix (13820) 2014-07-07 16:26
Well, it's easy to see why someone would want to build a castle in this spot...wow, what a view! :) You sure know how to compose a picture, this is well balanced and has interesting details in every section of the frame. The transition of colors in the sky and water is pure delight, the entire vista almost seems surreal. And how great must it be to have that place between the two little islands, looks like a paradise indeed. Hard to compete with this kind of setting, thanks for helping me to escape the desert for a short while. :) Have a great day ahead. All the best.
rychem (28877) 2014-07-07 21:22
Sceneria jak z bajki, Grecja powinna się tym chwalić, a nie tylko turystami na plaży z żaglówką w tle, super zdjęcie
claudeD (35901) 2014-07-08 4:05
wonderful landscape picture from Greece showing this very interesting location.Excellent composition, good colors and sharpness for this perfect shot. I would like toi be there now with all the rain we had here in Luxembourg the last few days ...TFS.

That beautiful place! ....... That you have captured with exquisite composition, with small islets in the foreground and behind high coastline ideal that house, which is between the two promontories that wonderful blue Aegean, an image to recreate and to dream.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I like it
Have a good day.
nikkitta (17018) 2014-07-08 9:18
Good descriptive note to learn about this landscape and the festivity
From this high point of view you obtained a panoramic well cadres by some branches
What I enjoy the more are the different shades of blue at the front and also at the far back just till the bluish mountains
The moving boat add movement
Very good capture of a place you love, it seems
mursaloglu (8682) 2014-07-09 4:47
Yassu Kamila :)
a great composition amazing perspective and marvelous colors. ine poli omorfo. bravo....
danos (91040) 2014-07-10 4:08
very nice and calmly the place with the beauty to be unique.Without to read the title as the note too,i thought that was a Chineese place because of your portfolio about China,and i was ready to write you about it,that looks like as a Greek place.
But reading the title i have recognised that was my beloved Parga.I will visit Preveza Aug 2-9 and of course i will visit Parga as other beautiful areas of the region.
Didi (59144) 2014-07-11 9:41
Lucky woman this is an awesome picture romantic view from a nice dominant position
You should try panoramic pictures
lousat (83438) 2014-07-11 9:42

Cześć Kamilka, Jak ja mogłam opuscić to zdjęcie. Czarowne miejsce, slicznie tu pokazane. ten amleńki domek tak bajecznie połozony. Cudowne morze i roślinność, chcialoby sie tam być :)
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2014-07-15 11:45
Kamilutka, I believe that when God was thinking of paradise he created Greece!!! Parga is one of the places in Greece with very spectacular seascapes and scenery, the water there is light green with shades of blue and the vegetation is that of a very deep green color that creates a fantastic contrast..talking about picturesque? your picture is got it all!!!
pierrefonds (60990) 2014-07-15 17:36
I like the way that you use the small islands to frame the bigger island. The distance between the islands and the mountains in the background is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the islands. Hav a nice day.
dkmurphys (53461) 2014-07-17 6:32
What a splendid little island in the middle of the blue sea. Very picturesque scene, well taken.
eldancer1 (32734) 2014-07-18 14:40
Wow! I certainly wouldn't mind living in that island, it's so beautiful and peaceful looking. Great pov showing the surrounding villages and sharp details. Very well done, tfs.
ricardomattos (5461) 2014-07-19 18:43
Wow! What a beautiful place and what a beautiful picture you did. That house or white church in the middle of the island gave a magical touch to your composition. The color of these waters is breathtaking.
npecanhuk (70752) 2014-07-21 8:01
Wonderful and pleasant-looking place!
Very beautiful, attractive and inviting picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities that really pleased me!
