Nafplion: Window view mix reflection with bougainvillea
Enchanting Nafplion, probably the most beautiful town of Greece, puts a spell on everyone who visits it. It is a unique city, which combines the medieval atmosphere of the old town, great beaches in vicinity and easy access to important archeological sites, such as Mycenae and Epidaurous.
The region has been inhabited from the 2nd millenium B.C. and Nafplios is its founder according to the myth. The city’s predominant mythological hero was Palamedes, who took part in the Trojan campaign. After the decline of classical Greece, Goths, Slaves and Albanians seized the town for a short time. Then the Byzantines moved in the city, which remained under their rule until 1213, when the Franks captured the city. From 1389 to 1540 the Venetians ruled Nafplio, to be followed by the Turks, who ruled the city until 1686, when the Venetians recaptured the city, only to lose it again in 1715 to the Turks. When the Greek revolution took place in 1821, the people of Nafplio rose and, led by Staikos Staikopoulos, laid siege to the town’s castle, eventually seizing it in 1822. In 1828 governor Kapodistrias made Greece’s first capital and in 1833 the city welcomed king Otto, Greece’s first king. In 1834 the capital was transferred in Athens and Nafplio moved off the spotlight of politics, gradually becoming a famous tourist resort.

Γεια σου Γεώργιε!
Πολύ όμορφο κάδρο, "μελετημένη" σύνθεση, άψογος φωτισμός! Το εντυπωσιακό χρώμα της μπουκαμβίλιας, κλέβει την παράσταση! Συγχαρητήρια!

A pretty composition where the bougainvillea makes a lovely frame for the reflection in the window. Very well observed and presented.

Bonne idée le cadrage serré, les reflets dans la fenêtre et l'arbre en fleur qui ajoute un plus agréable a l'image, beau résultat aussi en WS, ici le mur ne dérange pas mais plutôt le chambrant de la porte
Have a nice week end

Two distinct photographs in same framing. I like the composition which makes use of the reflection, and the inclusion of this very poetic flowered shrub. A pleasant image, carried out technically well. Cheer.
Have a nice day

bourgies are always captivate the eyes with its brightness and vibrance.
This scene is very catchy with the top frame by this red flowers and the exploitation of the window glass to depict the view.

Very beautiful shot.

Γεια σου Γεώργιε,
Εξαιρετική η σύνθεσή σου με τις αντανακλάσεις του παραθύρου κάτω από την πανέμορφη μπουκαμβίλια, όμορφα απαλά χρώματα.
Σε χαιρετώ, Βασίλης.
