Skiathos is an island of untold beauty. It is located right across Evias' and Thessalys' shores and east of Pelion. It belongs to the complex of North Sporades and along with Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros, they are of the most popular travel destinations with international fame.
here more travel info
Especially Skiathos is proud to be the most cosmopolitan, beautiful and enchanting island of this complex. And not unjustifiably. The piny mountains, endless golden shores and oddity of nature, transform into extraordinary natural phenomenons, like the renowned Lalaria, the hydroland in Koukounaries, but also the picturesque settlement of the town that combines in a unique way traditional architecture with the authentic style of Pelion. All that make visitors wanting to return to Skiathos.
Locals, due to the blue of the sea and dense vegetation, have denominated Skiathos emerald island. It has the biggest tourist development of all North Sporades islands. Skiathos, as Skopelos and Alonissos (Skyros administratively belongs to Evia), belongs to Magnesia, and it is the first island you see east of Pelion. It is 41 n.m. from Volos and 41 n.m. from Agios Constantinos.

very nice shot of this island at the end of the blue hour. Lovely foreground with a partial view into the water and some colorful light reflections on the water. Thanks to your good management of light, we do have a nice view to the illuminated houses on the island and a dark blue sky in the background. Good composition.

Oh, my goodness, Georgios!
For the longest time I try to get a "blue hour" shot and never do I get anything like this. I LOVE the way the town is lit up and reflected in the water. Great use of thirds, brilliant lighting and I especially like the one lone star in the cloudy sky. It's really beautiful. Many thanks and warmest regards,

Γεια σου Γεώργιε!
Εξαιρετική "μπλε" ώρα, τέλειο timing, πολυ καλή διαχείριση του φωτός, πανέμορφος ουρανός και αντανακλάσεις! Πολύ ωραίο κάδρο και σύνθεση, το μόνο "προβληματάκι" είναι ότι "γέρνει" ελαφρώς προς τα δεξιά, αλλά διορθώνεται πολύ εύκολα. Συγχαρητήρια!

I fully agree with you, this is a great place in the day or at night. I can see in your post the clear water even at night exposure!
Very well done in this 30s shot, especially capture of a star in the blue hour sky.
