Η μικρή παραλία (200 περίπου μέτρα μήκος) με βότσαλο Ποσειδώνιο βρίσκεται σε απόσταση 10 περίπου χιλιόμετρα νοτιανατολικά από την πρωτεύουσα, έχει σχετικά ρηχά και καθαρά νερά και είναι πολύ καλά προστατευμένη μέσα σε έναν ορμίσκο στην νοτιοανατολική ακτή του νησιού.
Η διαμονή κοντά στην περιοχή της παραλίας, αλλά και στην ευρύτερη περιοχή είναι εξασφαλισμένη και ο επισκέπτης μπορεί μετά το μπάνιο του να απολαύσει το φαγητό του στις παραθαλάσσιες ταβέρνες της.
Η παραλία είναι σχετικά οργανωμένη και προσφέρεται για ήσυχο μπάνιο σε πολύ ωραία θάλασσα σε σχετικά κοντινή απόσταση από την πρωτεύουσα και ηλιοθεραπεία και ξεκούραση σε ξαπλώστρες και κάτω από ομπρέλες.

You have captured the beach beautifully. Crystal clear water, boats and red tile roofed houses are looking very nice. Good framing. Congrats.

Very good image, TFS

Very fine and colorful composition, Danos!!
Original focus and good POV!!

Very well taken!!

My congrats!!

Geia sou Danos, is this place named after your famous God Poseidon? Everything is remarkably clear and sharp. The water looks very inviting and the inclusion of people always adds life to the image. A deck chair, sun and swimming would be ideal. TFS, Lisa.

Ciao Danos,
una leggera sottoesposizione accentua i colori saturi delle case, del paesaggio ed evidenzia i bei riflessi sull'acqua. Il Pitagorio a Samos, un luogo delizioso tutto da godere.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Υπέροχα τέτοια ταβερνάκια για το καλοκαιράκι, πάνω στη θάλασσα μέσα σε καταπράσινο τοπίο όπως αυτό της Σάμου κι οι βαρκούλες σε πρώτο πλάνο είναι τα καλύτερα στοιχεία για μια επιτυχημένη τουριστική διαφήμιση.
Σε χαιρετώ, Βασίλης.

Hi Danos,
Fine composition of the interesting place. I would like to visit Greece in next year, but I do not sure.
Good colours and excellent POV. Well done!

Hi Danos

200 meter is really small for a beach, but I guess, not many people go there, so it may is a good spot to avoid the crowd. The little marine already looks peaceful. Vibrant color hues with high sharpness as well as fine framing. Well done

Best regards

Hi Danos,
a beautiful and peaceful photo of this place, the composition is very attractive, I like the mood of the photo, the POV is superb, an excellent shot. Have a nice day!

Hi Danos,
very attractive composition.
Boats in the foreground and a holiday village in the background. Really pleasant shot. The colors are very original because you decided not to include the sky.
Good idea,

Hi Danos,
At this moment I would like to be taking an appetizer in that terrace that we see in your photo. It is the feeling that inspires me after looking at it.
The boats in FG add a good graphical and chromatic contrast to the composition.
A great work with the light and the colors.
An excellent photo.
Friendly regards,

Hello Danos,
Very fine and colorful composition.Reasonable sharpness, superb colour.

Hej Danos,

Hello Danos,

A splendid vacation place with water and a lovely place for to take a break with a good glass wine of a cup or coffee on this terrace.
Also the colours are superb, a splendid presentation of you.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice evening,

Hi Danos,
Pleasant view well composed with boats and house, a lovely place, nice light too.

Namaste Danos,
great atmosphere. Nice colourful ambiance. Light is great. The boats are looking great in the backdrop of green of mountains. Beautiful houses in background. Superb depth.
Excellent shot.

Hello Danos,

you exploited well the boats in fg to create a sense of depth and dynamism. The photo has a good clarity that allows to appreciate the fine details of this small beach and restaurant. The place looks ideal to spend a day at seaside and have a meal. I like all that green surrounding the restaurant. (As a sailing enthusiast I would have preferred a more traditional boat...)

Have a nice weekend,

Hello danos,

I like the composition of this beautiful image rich in contrasts and various details well collected. The composition is well balalnced in differents plans well delimited with a great depht. The colors arise very well in the image.

Hi Danos,
interesting picture of this beach and boat, and simply capture. I like of the colors and quality too. Great job, my friend.

Hi Danos,

The two boats in the foreground leads my eyes toward the restaurant, it is allowing me to see the details and colors of the restaurant. The presence of the poeple has an effect of scale. The reflections on the clear water are assets to the composition. The trees are framing well the buildings. Well done, have a nice day.


This is a nicely composed shot with the boats in the foreground and the restaurant in the background. The photo has nice layers and you have shown them nicely. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.

Hi Danos,
Lovely coastal scene with the green seas catching a striking reflection from the mountainside trees.
The foreground boats make an effective lead-in to the lovely coastal village.

Hello Danos,
There you describe, with talent, a superb environment of holidays, far from agitation and of the noise. The clearness of your image makes it possible to see in detail these small port and beach. The foreground is very attractive. The light, the colors, the reflections are pleasant. Cheer.

Hi Danos,

Your photo fascinates me since the boats dominates the picture and seems to be what you have focused with your camera. Still when looking at your photo it leads your eyes to the taverna in the background. It a wonderful picture though a probably one the best POVs you could chose in Poseidonio. TFS and have nice Sunday!



ciao Danos,
bella spiaggetta con i turisti ,la natura alle spalle e le due barche in FG a dare luminisità e una bella profondità alla scena.
buona domenica

Hello Danos,
the taverns or the restaurants near the see are always fascinated, this must be a very beautiful place in which eating.
The boat on FG give a great depht to the scene, the colours are really amazing.
Have a great week.
Best regards.

Bonsoir, mon ami Danos,
Le beau temps semble régner en maître en Grèce ! les bateaux au premier plan se mirent joliment dans les eaux calmes.
L'arrière-plan nous indique la vie tranquille de quelques vacanciers.
La beauté de l'environnement est fort agréable.
Une composition qui donne des envies de vacances !

Hello Danos,

This seaside resort and this small port have an evocative name !!! Ideal to take quiet and pleasant holidays. A sunny photograph which illuminates this rather gray day on Versailles today. The point of view is quite selected with these two boats in the foreground to give depth to the landscape. Beautiful composition, thank you Danos.

I love boats but never sat on them did not.
You're the master of such compositions.
Wonderful background.
Beautiful colors and wonderful light, make a magnificent composition.
Have a Nice weekend

A nice view of the beach on the island, Danos.
It looks as a place I'd seen once in Lindos... very similsr with the Tavern on sea-front, and boats afloat...

Δάνο καλημέρα,
το λιμανάκι του Ποσειδώνειου είναι πολύ γραφικό με τις βάρκες να καλύπτουν όλο το προσκήνιο.Οι ταβέρνα στην άκρη της θάλασσας είναι πόλος έλξης για τους επισκέπτες.


Δάνο, το πιό ενδιαφέρον της φωτογραφίας σου είναι το όνομα της βάρκας (φούγκα) πολύ μουσικό όνομα!
Το πιό ελκυστικό τής φωτογραφίας σου είναι το ταβερνάκι πού πολύ θα ήθελα νε είμαι εκεί τώρα...
Τα υπόλοιπα τής φωτογραφίας σου είναι απλά υπέροχα!!!
καλό σου βράδυ,

Very sharp composition Danos, vivid colors
So many little islands to discover in Greece
I like these fishing boats and the restaurants view
Have a good evening
