Strolling in Marathokampos waterfront,i saw this boat pulled on pebbles to be maintained for the next summertime.

Marathokampos Bay

Marathokampos Bay (Όρμος Μαραθόκαμπου) is a municipality on the island of Samos, Samos Prefecture, Greece. The population is 2,837 (2001 census) and the land area is 87.250 km². It shares the island of Samos with the municipalities of Vathy, Pythagoreio, and Karlovasi. It is the smallest of the four municipalities in both land area and population.

Is found in the south-western side of Samos island, on the foot of the tall mountain Kerkis overlooking the deep blue Aegean sea. In distance of 30 km is found the island’s airport and 40 km is the capital of Samos, Vathi.

Allocates a small graphic traditional port embellished with traditional fish boats, where various excursion boats offers to visitors the opportunity to explore unspoilt beaches, small islets, the holy island of Patmos as well as the islands of Fournous and Ikaria. Moreover the visitor is able to travel in Turkey to visit the ancient city of Ephesus.

Is considered as the centre of the tourist region of Marathokampos municipality, where the visitor can escape for the everyday routine by enjoying the picturesque ness and the inalterable natural environment of a genuine traditional village.

Apart from the village’s beach, in very short distance are found many famous beaches such as Velanidia, Votsalakia, Psili Ammos, Limionas and others. The green region is offered for walks, excursions to the various monasteries and small churces, in the cave of Pythagoras and for ascent on the taller mountain of island, Kerkis (1450m altitude.)

Is an ideal destination for visitors who desire to spend without any interruptions their leisure time, far away from crowd tourist resorts (especially for families with small children). Visit the unique fish-village and you will be charmed from the natural environment, the picturesqueness and the ultra-clean sea…

hi Danos
žalostno, da je res tako, da je konec poletja.
bilo je dinamično in prijetno toplo.
tudi barka z imenom "danos 10" je nasedla in čaka novo poletno sezono.
lep narejeno! TFS!

Hi Danos,

A well-composed boat picture with boat in the foreground that dominates the scene. The boat is also well positioned to the left and in relation to the jetty. TFS and have nice evening!



P.S. Being from Norther Europe this photo does not convey any end of summer feeling for me.

Ciao Danos,
una composizione con pochi elementi diventa molto efficace grazie alla bellezza ed all'attenta disposizione degli elementi sull'immagine.
La barca in primo piano è collocata nel posto più giusto, per lasciare il giusto spazio al resto del paesaggio. Tecnica e qualità eccellenti come sempre.
Un caro abbraccio.

Geia sou Dano,
I am very happy that you managed to buy a yacht!
It's s a very beautiful one!
Excellent POV, the composition is very studied, the play of lines is very well-balanced.
October seams to be a wonderful season to see Greece.

HI Danos
I see you have sailing plans ;-)
A discrete but well added small personal touch to this boat picture
Have a nice day JY

Ciao Danos, great composition with Danos boat in FG, wonderful refelections, a splendid goodbye to summer, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Danos, Excellent shot, almost like a still life with the boats aground or anchored here on this beach. You have, as usual, an outstanding presentation of the subject here. It is really amazing how many islands there are within the Greek country. All of them are lovely and you have done them justice in your shots. I note the small boat has Danos on it, coincedence or is it yours? Regards, and have a nice weekend. Roger

Hi Danos,

It is the end of the summer so the boats are waiting to be put in storage. The per is heling to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the the boats. The light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.

Hi Danos
Et une image bien composer et cadrer avec la barque qui porte votre nom, et attend l'été prochain, la lumière est belle et donne de la brillance sur l'eau, belle image
Un très beau weekend

Bonjour Danos,
J'aime la simplicité et la force de cette composition. Les touristes sont partis et les bateaux devront attendre encore de longs mois avant de reprendre du service.

Hello Danos,
Pictures of seashore with boats always look for me very romantic, this one in particular. There is a great composition here, with the nice pebbles and the colorful boat named 'Danos 10' in the foreground and the elegant footbridge leading to the second boat. Interestingly composed and captured with very high quality!
Best regards,
Best regards

Hello Danos,

An interesting composition, almost a still life from a maritime setting!
The pebbles on the shore makes a fine element and the boat in front is a sure eye-catcher...
Sharp fine details and a well balanced composition with good depth!

Hi DAnos, Is it your boat? :)) End of summer, but what does it mean in Greece? You will not have snow and freezing and short days. I do not like winter so for me it is sad. Nostalgic view, the boats must wait for the next year..

Warm regards


Hello Danos
The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats.
The light is enhancing the colors.
Good control of light.
Sharp pictures of high quality.
Excellent work.
Respect my friend

Nearly a minimalistic image which exploits well the DOF and the perspective created by the boat with this wooden pontoon. I like the excellent clarity which makes one appreciate the textures of the pebbles and that of the wood and sea.
I know that Danos must be a common name in Greece but I guess that a little trick of PP has settled the propriety of that boat! (;-) But next time choose a bigger one! (:-)
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Danos,
Simple and interesting composition. Good exposure and nice tones, good elements in your image.
Have a great day.

- Poetic picture with this sade little boats at the end of Summer Danos, sympathetic atmosphere, well done!

Καλώς ήρθατε
Μια όμορφη, αν και κάπως παλιό δόντι του χρόνου καταστράφηκε το σκάφος, σε ένα χαρακτηριστικό ελληνικό χρώμα. Ανάπαυση ήσυχα στην όμορφη παραλία με βότσαλα. Εξαιρετική ποιότητα εικόνας.

dear Danos,
this quiet and cool atmosphere at the end of hot summer is very ambient and sentimental,,,
"Danos 10" boat looks very lonely and the wooden deck is breaking, it is really moody season here,
beautiful light and reflection on the water are consolation for that feeling,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hello Danos,

Two lovely scenes in these picture.
In foreground the boat middle of the lovely boulders.
To the background we become leaded through the gangway.
Sharpness and clarity are of high quality.
Nice compostion, good presentation too. TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Ola Danos,
Bonita composição com este barco nesta praia de pedras , bons detalhes, gostei da palavra "Danos 10" ,parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Bom fim de semana

Hi dear Danos,
Nice "end summer scene" ! Very good capture with perfect pov and nice light.
But there is a small mistake : sea vessel has allways feminine names !! :-) But I think that's your signature!
TFS and have a nice weekend
Best regards

This is a nicely composed shot with the foreground boat dominating the scene while the dock leads the eye through the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness. The second boat provides nice balance for the shot.

Hello Danos,

The end of the summer... A beautiful shot with a little nostalgy with this lonely boat. Excellent FG which give depht with the pier in the sea which invite to discovery.
Have a nice WE,

Hello Danos,
The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats.Good control of light.

Hello Danos,

I see that this boat was renamed !!! End of the summer but am sure that these boats will still sail on this calm water… The autumn will have also beautiful sunny periods. Beautiful and luminous photograph with a good balance in framing. A resting and pleasant image, thank you Danos.

With all my friendships and an excellent WE,


Ciao dear Danos,
pleasant image, symbol of a summer that is ended. Excellent photographic quality, especially the management of the light and the sharp. Also the reflexes on the water are very suggestive. Really an excellent work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
PS: I have seen "Danos 10" painting on the bow. Is yours the boat? :-)

Hi Danos,
I see the lovely traditional boat bears your name.
Splendid harbor shot with the rocky beach catching strong light as the boat makes a excellent lead-in to the blue waters.
Regards, Tom

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Πολύ όμορφη η σύνθεσή σου με τη βάρκα σε πρώτο πλάνο και πολύ έξυπνη η υπογραφή σου σαν όνομά της, η ξύλινη προβλήτα πολύ σωστά τοποθετημένη ώστε να δημιουργεί μια πολύ καλή αίσθηση βάθους πεδίου, ωραία ζωντανά χρώματα.
Να περάσεις μια όμορφη Κυριακή, Βασίλης.

Hello Danos,
The rollers have a pleasant texture, I intend them to grate under my feet. Superb composition with this astonishing footbridge. Good light, beautiful colors, excellent relization, as usual. Cheer.
Have a nice sunday

ciao Danos,
anche l'autocelebrazione sulla barca... :))))
Bella immagine di mare con la barca e il pontile.
Ottima la luce.

Hi Danos,

This is so beautiful in close framing. The details are well seen in well exposed shot. Excellent setting and I like Danos 10 a lot. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.


Good composition with boat and planks. I like the soft colors, too. Congratulations!

Hi Danos,

Summer has to end at your part of the world so that we can enjoy it here at the south hemisphere... Beaultiful shot of the "Danos 10" !!

Cheers, Maurício

Hi Danos.
After a few days vacation again in the pages of TE.
A magnificent composition that shows a very graphic image that is going well as late summer, the lonely boat on the rocks of the shore and the dock empty, it gives a room a little sadness at the end of the bustle and joy of beaches in summer.
A nice job with a splendid light as well as color and sharpness.
Best regards.

Hello Danos
Nice compo with thepier forming a bridge between the two boats. Use of the boat in the FG has been very effectively done & so also your name on the boat (;-))..compo is effective & other technicals good as always!

A melancholic autumn scene as beachs are emptying from holyday's makars, Danos.
However a fine shot, Kalimera

Bom dia Danos

It could be very good to sail in those calm waters.Very nice composition.

Hi Danos,
The boat on the beach and other one tied to the gangplank they form a symbolic image of the summer end, well used in this closed angle and in your composition.
I like the details of the pebbles and of the water, as well as the textures of the wood and of the boats, which we see perfectly due to the high quality of the image.
A beautiful work, my friend.

Olá Danos,

Good management of light in the foreground.Beautiful composition with the boat very well positioned.

With all my friendships and an excellent day,

Geia sou dear Danos, I love old boats and the one in the foreground looks so lonely. But I like its name, Dano 10 :) Excellent colours and it's perfectly balanced by the other boat in the water. TFS and I wish you a beautiful day, Lisa
