Near in the island of Elefandini in the Nile, a lot of Feluccas and small boats,cross the river,transporting goods,locals and tourists.The sunset,in combination with the peacefulness that existed in the environment, created a marvellous and idyllic atmosphere.

Felucca

A felucca (Arabic: فلوكة‎) is a traditional wooden sailing boat used in protected waters of the Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean including Malta, and particularly along the Nile in Egypt. Its rig consists of one or two lateen sails.

They are usually able to board ten-some passengers and the crew consists of two or three people. Despite being made obsolete by motorboats and ferries, feluccas are still in active use as a means of transport in Nile-adjacent cities like Aswan or Luxor. They are especially popular among tourists who can enjoy their quieter and calmer mood than motorboats have to offer.

San Francisco's feluccas

Americans are largely unaware of the fleet of lateen-rigged feluccas that thronged San Francisco's docks even before the construction of the state-owned Fisherman's Wharf in 1884. They were built by southern Italian immigrants (who called them "silenas"). The light small maneuverable feluccas were the mainstay of the fishing fleet of San Francisco Bay. "These workhorses featured a mast that angled, or raked, forward sharply, and a large triangular sail hanging down from a long, two-piece yard" John Muir described them.

Hello Danos! Amazing sails, wonderful POV and composition. Superb light and bright, good contrast and sharp. Nice effect. Good work. Good luck!

Hi Danos. Excellent photo, very strong composition with the boats in a line and angled away as they are. Superb colours also. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Have a good weekend, Paul.

Hello Danos

What a marvelous light !
The ideal moment to catch these elegant felucas.
The sun on the sails gives some warm and pleasant colours and a quiet atmosphere.
Regarding the composition, the sequence of the 3 boats is perfectly seen and very dynamic.
However, I wonder if it would not have been interesting to crop the right part of your picture to draw the attention directly on the felucas and to bring the diagonal out.
Just my two cents, but nevertheless it's a great shot.

Regards
Karine

Hi Danos,
Splendid photo with beautiful and spectacular composition, the colours and lights are picturesque, great mood, Have a nice day!

Hi Danos,

Excelent composition. The formation of the boats give much depth to the image. The large triangular sail is very interesting. The sunset light is great! Nice colors and good details.

Have a nice day

Hello Danos
You chose a good time of day to photograph this peaceful scene. The setting sun is throwing warm light on the felucca sails. Such a relaxing way to travel compared to the paddle-wheelers behind. Tfs, Marlene

Hello Danos,

A superb harmony in the color between the blue ( the sky and the water) and the warm color of the another elements. A good balance in the composition too and a veryplesant graphic effect.
Best regards,
Roger

Hi Danos,

The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the fellucas. It is alos taking our eyes toward the sand dunes which is giving depth to the composition. The light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.

this is a wonderful photograph. Gold and blue are always a winning combination and here you have captured those colours so well. Your composition is superb with the feluccas taking up two third of the frame. The angle of their beautiful sails adds extra dynamism.

I took numerous shot of feluccas when I was there, but none came out good enough to post. This one is excellent, the colours are faithful and teh scene brings back many fond memories, thanks for that.

Hola Danos -------------------------------->

Una foto con una luz increíble del atardecer,
los colores son perfectos .... todo crea un ambiente
estupendo. Solo el encuadre a mi manera de ver
debería ser mejorado dando un poco más de aire en
la parte del cielo, pienso que el mástil de
la primera felucca está demasiado ajustado al encuadre.
En cualquier caso felicidades por el cuadro.

lep dan, vojko

Δάνο καλημέρα,
εξαιρετική η παρουσίαση των φελλουκών με το μοναδικό και ιδιόρυθμο πανί τους να μετακινούν τα σκάφη.Το ζεστό απογευματινό φως με τις αντανακλάσεις τους στα νερά του ποταμού κάνουν την σκηνή μοναδική.

Πέτρος

Δάνο, μια οπτική πανδαισία είναι αυτή σου η φωτογραφία σε χρώματα, σε αντίθεση, σε μοναδικά σχήματα!
Μια σύνθεση πολύ ξεχωριστή πού προτρέπει για ταξίδι στον Νείλο!Ενημερωτική και πλήρης η σημείωση σου όπως πάντα άλλωστε!
κάλό βράδυ,
Ελένη

Good presentation of that special kind of sailing boat
Excellent sharpness, fine colors and I like the view of the landscape aroun
Your note is very exhaustive
Bonne soirée

Hello, Danos,
Very nice composition, I was on the Nile in 2005 and I think the sails boat are symbol of these places. Well seen. Excellent yellow-blue combination.
The weather report said about +16 C in Hurghada today. This is not the best place for a bech rest.
Best wishes from cold Ural!

Typical Nile scene but the setting sun adds the warmth and special glow to the picture. I like it...

Dear Danos,

Thanx for sharing.
