Photographer's Note

A detail of the marina of Mikrolimano, Pireaus. The white mass in the distance is part of the southern suburbs of Athens.
I haven't overdone it with post processing and there are a few details that may prove this. My vantage point was the terrace of a well known seafood restaurant.

Mikrolimano (little port) is 1km from the centre of Piraeus, close to the main port, the largest in Greece, but it's very peaceful and picturesque. In the port there are small fishing boats, sailing boats and luxurious yachts. All along the quay there are coffee bars and restaurants with a great variety of sea food. You feel so far away from the city wandering there (except if you're looking for a parking place.)
In ancient times the port was protected by Artemis. At the location of the goddess' temple now lies the building of the Yacht Club of Greece.

Thank you for visiting
