Marmari beach

on the left you can see a couple that enjoy the sun and the sandy beach carefree.

Marmari is a very known touristic destination of the South Evia island and very close to Athens.In ancient years it was a important exporting center of marble from its port,so and its name,μάρμαρο-marble.
Its economic growth of the region even in our days too depends from the slate rocks and particular to the slates,named 'slates Karystou'.
Today,Marmari spreading in a picturesque and characteristic natural semicircle,has been developed in a center of vacations and is an ideal point for exploration of the South Evia.
In the Summer months is full of people and in Winter months is transformed in a quite fish village.

Geia sou Danos
I have a chance today of being the first to post a critic about this idyllic scenery, masterfully captured to emphasize those great spaces enliven of both cold and warm tones for an intense mood of serenity!
Se xereto.

Hello Danos,

This is a beautiful composition with these vast empty spaces. I like the various tones of the sea and the deepness toward the mountains. Good ligh and colors.

Best regards


Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
τι όμορφη καλοκαιρινή εικόνα με εκπληκτικό βάθος και θαυμάσια, βαθιά χρώματα. Υπάρχει τέλεια ισορροπία μέσα στο κάδρο χάρη στη μελετημένη σύνθεση, τη χρήση της προοπτικής και στην τοποθέτηση των χρωμάτων που σχηματίζουν εντυπωσιακές αντιθέσεις. Πολύ ευχάριστο μέρος για βόλτα, μάλλον και για κολύμπι. Εξαιρετική παρουσίαση, συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό βράδυ,

HI Danos,
Very attractive beach, a nice panorama in great natural colors. Well taken.

Hello Danos,
This is a very beautiful beach and a spit of land in the sea. Surrounded by sand we find two smaller natural swimming pools. Perhaps more appropriate for the little ones among the visitors.
Very good composition and attractive colours.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Danos!

Wonderful landscape.
Excellent frame and super colors.
Good night

Όμορφη, εκτεταμένη αμμουδιά και το μπλε της θάλασσας. Οι λόφοι από την άλλη πλευρά μοιάζουν με το στήθος μιας γυναίκας. Υπέροχα χρώματα και άριστη ποιότητα.
Δικός σου.

Hi Danos,

The distance between the beach and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the mountains. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

Hello Danos
Nice picture of the expanse of the beach with the cool-warm colour contrast working well. Though the couple is very small in the frame, it gives an idea of the grand scale you showed in this image...well done!

Hi dear Danos

Wow the last frontier of the last paradise.
So stunning and breathtaking landscape is well presented by your professional skills.

Hello Danos,

You're capturing well this beautiful place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the sandy beach with characteristic natural semicircle, clean/blue sea and low mountain range of this island. It is good for untouched nature to remain and for there to be no sightseeing-ized institution in this place. The whole is balanced well by a good arrangement and tasteful color combination. And surely, a couple will be relax in this circumstance.

Kind regards,

excellent view of this natural landscape. I liked the way you framed the image and the way you presented us the small waters surrounded by the sand with the sea ahead. nice detail. TFS.



Fantastic blue sea of the Kos island, Danos.
Wonderful perspective from a higher ground, view till far side mountains in good clarity.
The small "peninsula" created a nice "refuge" place for the lonely couple on sight.

A deserted beach, wild and romantic, with almost nobody in sight, that is really a dream come true. Greenery, sand and sea, what can you ask for more. Good photo job

Yassou Danos
Very good dominant point of view and good lights ambiance.
Also a good place to make panoramic views
Kind regards

Hello Danos,
nice and quite unique looking beach-from three sides surrounded by the sea.For me beautiful and certainly a good place to relax.
Also the way you captured the scene reveals you considered the whole shot excellently.I like the POV as well as so delightful and vivid colors.

Have a nice day

Ciao Danos
una spiaggia straordinaria e una foto straordinaria.
Il luogo č bello quanto il tuo scatto per la bella disposizione degli elementi ed i colori vivaci e contrastanti.
Mare, sabbia e sole non mancano di certo sotto un cielo ancor piů meraviglioso.
Ciao e buona giornata

Hi Danos
This is probably the typical beach scape here without trees but the small dotted of colours at one-third make the diff. Lovely blue sky and water, a very pleasing exposure and rich colors and the eyecatching contrast to the sandy beach. Nicely shot, Congrats. TFS

Hola Danos

And now a very beautiful landscape taken from a high point of view , what lets best appreciate the incredible different colors of the sea
Great composition
Greetings and congrats
Waiting for your visit and photos of Seattle

Kalispera dear Danos

The CPL filter has worked really well here, achieving lovely rich tones in the earth and also blue tones in the sea and sky. I love how unspoilt and unpopulated this place is. The landscape is like a dream for me.

Warmest wishes and thanks for sharing

Hi danos,

Hi Danos,

This must be a very disagreeable couple, so much that nobody else wants to be around them! :) I'm jealous though, I would love to have the entire beach to myself. Beautiful blues with a touch of turquoise for good measure, and a solid composition placing the horizon about a third of the way down in the frame. I think that small section of greenery in the bottom right corner is what makes this all come together quite nicely. Plain and simple, and simply beautiful! Thanks for the view. Have a good Sunday.

Friendly regards from Phoenix,


Hello Danos,

Beautiful sandy beach of Marmari.Greece looks out of the world from your images.Hope to visit your lovely land someday.Take care.

Have a great Sunday,

Hi Danos,
nice to see this couple who enjoy the calm and solitary beach, in the middle of a beautiful coastal landscape.
You have managed skilfully the light, and have reached a high color quality, in a very sharp image.
An excellent work, my friend.
Best regards,

Bonjour Danos
j'envie cette mer bleue, ce ciel que je ne vois pas souvent de ce bleu, ce coin tranquille oů j'ai eu du mal ŕ trouver ces deux personnes....profiter d'un tel paysage et tel que tu nous le présentes c'est le ręve...
belle composition

Dear Danos
Yet another perfect work.
Beautiful landscape composition, which is usually your specialty.
To paint an expert too.
All the best.

Hello Danos.
Beautiful photos of this coastline.
Nice saturated colors.
Blue Sea provides an excellent photo charm with beautiful blue skies, mountains between are very nice captured in the picture.
It's beautiful.

Hello Danos,

beautiful and peaceful scenery. Deep bleu sky and water, with warm sandy color beaches. The lonely sun bather down at the beach makes me want to pack up my beach towel and join them, okay, maybe not so close but donw there somewhere further out. Beautiful quality photo with good composition.


Hi,a marvelous view,sunny and seemingly secluded.Excellent colors and textures in sand and water.Love the composition with the immediate foreground included.Friendly regards,Wolf.

Hi Danos,
beautiful view. You have found a great POV to present it. The colors are very eye catching. Wonderful beach and the one couple has it all for themselves.
Very well done.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Danos,
What a beautiful foreshore, seen from the cliff in the foreground, with the little laguna in the middle of the sandy beach, the wonderful blue sea as usual in Greece and the rolling hills in the background.
Thanks for pointing out to the sunbathers ! The size of them gives an idea of the distance from which you took the picture ! Lovely resting place.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.

Γειά σου Δάνο,
καιρό έχουμε να τα πούμε... ξέρω εγώ φταίω με το να μην ασχολούμαι πλέον τόσο συχνά με το ΤΕ.
Έχω γυρίσει σχεδόν όλη την Εύβοια αλλά στο Μαρμάρι δεν έχω πάει ποτέ!
Πολύ όμορφη πανοραμική η θέα της περιοχής από καλό σημείο λήψης και όπως πάντα πολύ καλή η ποιότητα της φωτογραφίας.

Warm regards

Hi Danos,
Wonderful image. Great colors, contrast and sharpness,Well composed, blue sky is reflected well in this blue see.

The beautiful colors of the Sea of Marmara, the angle of the camera to record the image of an attractive, good resolution, high-quality view of the beach queries
all the best

Hello Danos,

Perhaps one of your best pictures. I like
the combination between the open spaces
with the layers in the pictures: it creates
a nice depth and make the picture nice
calmness. A nice extra is that each layer
has it's own color. Light management is
also great.
