Photographer's Note

Hi viewer!

This time, no special story, I hope just a nice view. This photo is taken on Meganissi, just as the photo I shared yesterday. After driving a while with the scooter, we went a little offroad, atleast away from surfaced road. The unsurfaced road was close to the sea, more precisely the channel between Lefkada and Meganissi. (Meganissi meaning big island, is in fact, a small satellite island nearby Lefkada, as I told yesterday !). This is at the west coast of Meganissi. Suddenly we reached this beach. It was so lonely! Nobody was there and nobody came across when we we're there! Only a few sailboats, but they passed by in the distance..

Do you have the chance often to swim at a empty and lonely beach ? With nice weather, not to warm and in crystalclear water ?? Well I don't !! Not at all!
So we put on our swimming clothes and went in! As nobody comes there, and boats passby in the distance, no sand from the bottom of the sea is swept up. So it's very clear underwater, very crisp vision!

After swimming I made some photo's, this is one of the results. Except for the water I also liked the clouds in the sky. And that tree hangingover on the right, unfortunatly it's not captured fully on this picture.

* Shadow/Highlight as it was a dark picture, but with bright beach
* Rotate + Resize 800px
Slightly :
* Levels
* Brightness/Contrast
* Color Balance
* Saturation.
* And some USM on the end.

Saving below 200 kb was a problem -> decreased quality, I think it's a bit visible..artifacts and a bit noisy.

That's it! I hope you enjoy it!

for location, if you like to know!
