view from Naxos island
Naxos (in Greek, Νάξος) is a Greek island, the largest island (429 km2 (166 sq mi)) in the Cyclades island group in the Aegean. It was the centre of archaic Cycladic culture.
The island comprises the two municipalities of Naxos and Drymalia. The largest town and capital of the island is Hora, sometimes called Naxos City, with 6,533 inhabitants (2001 census). The main villages are Filoti, Apiranthos, Vivlos, Agios Arsenios, Koronos and Glinado.
Naxos is a popular tourist destination, with several easily accessible ruins. It has a number of beautiful beaches, such as those at Agia Anna, Agios Prokopios, Alikos, Kastraki, Mikri Vigla, Plaka, and Agios Georgios, most of them near Hora. Naxos is the most fertile island of the Cyclades. It has a good supply of water in a region where water is usually inadequate. Mount Zas (999 metres) is the highest peak in the Cyclades, and tends to trap the clouds, permitting greater rainfall. This has made agriculture an important economic sector with various vegetable and fruit crops as well as cattle breeding, making Naxos the most self sufficient island in the Cyclades. Naxos is also known within Greece for its potatoes.

Ciao Costa. Molto buoni colori e la luce con spazio sempre ben gestito con la barca sul terzo della foto. Foto in sofferenza da minor nitidezza, a mio parere.

Γεια σου Κωνσταντίνε,
Πολύ όμορφη η φωτογραφική σου άποψη όπως πάντα βέβαια, αλλά...πας να μου πάρεις την αποκλειστικότητα της Νάξου?
Υπέροχο νησί, πέρασα θαυμάσια τρώγοντας μονίμως πατάτες.
Να είσαι καλά.
Φιλικά σε καληνυχτίζω, Βασίλης.

quando ho letto Naxos, ho pensato Taormina. So che sei stato da quelle parti e a Taormina c'Ŕ una localitÓ che si chiama Naxos.
Riguardo la foto, la composizione Ŕ molto gradevole, come spesso tu ci hai abituato nelle tue foto precedenti.
Anche la gestione della luce mi sembra buona, ma il tutto credo che soffra un p˛ di nitidezza.
Ti ho fatto un WS!

Una bellissima cartolina, un po' sofferente nella definizione. Buon susseguirsi di piani e linee orizzontali.

I miss more sharpness in the photo. With more sharpness this photo would be a winner because the place and composition and also the colours are very nice.
