You can see here a larger,sharper and more detailed version of the photo.

Going from Athens to Preveza for Summer vacations i saw many interesting places but the most inviting it was this one just out of the town of Amfilochia.
It was a good place for resting after some hours of driving.


Amfilochia (Greek: Αμφιλοχία) is a town and a municipality in the northwestern part of Aetolia-Acarnania in Greece, on the site of ancient Amfilochia. Under the Ottoman Empire, it was known as Karvasaras (Καρβασαράς; from caravanserai).

Amfilochia is situated by the Ambracian Gulf and features an amphitheatre. Amfilochia dates back to the ancient times and also features the ancient cities of Amphilochian Argos and Limnaia (or Limnea).

Hello Danos,

You found a beautiful place for resting, really it was picturesque and armchairs were placed at the side of river, the background with the dark hills and sky with white clouds are superb.

warm regards,


Hi Danos,
Now that is a beautiful place, I could easily imagine a picnic and ice cold beer sitting here, in the bright sun, or in the shade of the tree. The whole scene is very appealing but for me, the tree is the star of the show. You got wonderful depth too, leading from foreground flowers to the mountains in the far, far distance.

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
χαίρομαι πολύ που το πρόβλημα λύθηκε γρήγορα κι απλά! Αυτή η φωτογραφία έχει τραβηχτεί από μια καλά επιλεγμένη γωνία ώστε να απολαύσουμε κι εμείς τα πιο ωραία χαρακτηριστικά του σκηνικού. Παρόλο που η διαδρομή με το αυτοκίνητο πρέπει να είναι ωραία, είναι και κουραστική για τον οδηγό, αυτή η στάση μοιάζει λοιπόν σαν όαση. Θαυμάσια η λιακάδα και τα χρώματα, η αίσθηση δροσιάς και ηρεμίας. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή εβδομάδα,

Hello Danos ,
For sure , an attractive place to have a drink . But may be that I should need an umbrella ...
A well composed picture full of colors of the summertime .

Hello Danos,
Indeed this looks like a nice place to break a long journey. If this was a caravanserai it must have been appreciated for this purpose already very long ago. It's a fine view from this POV and also from the benches just above the water. Maybe just some more shade would be appreciated on a very hot and sunny day.
Kind regards,

Hello Danos, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting view, well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, beautiful light, color and quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

really it is an amazing place to put the ideas on the right place and find some calm and good relax. very nice details around and an image with good quality. TFS.



Hello Danos,

Greece is an amazing place for ancient sites and interesting history and, here, you have shown us some of its beauty. The flowers set the scene, leading to the tree, which stands guard to the bay, besides offering shade to people using the benches.
This must be a lovely place to rest, with fine views of the water and the land. How surprising that there is no one taking advantage of the seats!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Howdy Danos,

The benches and chairs beckon relaxing and dreaming from the rocky outcrop looking out to the blue waters.
And the town of Amfilochia sounds intriguing for exploring.

Thanks for sharing,

Hi Danos,

The distance between the two shore is giving depth to the composition. I agree with you the location overlooking the water is a nice resting area. The point of view is showing the details of the resting area. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi dear Danos
Beauty shot of a lovely and relaxing place. Very well done and very beautiful.

Regards ...

Hi Danos
A nicely composed seascape with the break in deep blue water sandwiched in between creating an eye catching contrast. Although its finely exposed, the lighting i feel is a bit too harsh in general but no doubt it's worthy of all the effort. Well done.
Best regards

Dear Danos,

Really a great place to rest and enjoy the nature which is all around. The colour of the lake water is looking very nice. A little lack of green atmosphere.

Hell Danos,

This like a invitation for to drink a cup of coffee on these nice terrace against the river.
Also excellent depth and perspective with a lovely panorama view in background.
Very nice composition, excellent presentation.
Colours and panorama sight make your picture attractive
Nice done, TFS.

Best regards,

Excelent chosen point to post a table with chairs, view from the edge of a cliff and over the far side bank, Danos.
Blue water could make me sitting and glazing for hours in such a spot.
Marvelous pic., beautifully combined with the left side flowers.

Hi Danos.
That's so ideal location for those tables and benches at the promontory, near the lone tree, a special place, with a wonderful setting, you've caught us in a perfect POV.
Very good range of colors.
Good management of both the brightness and sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good start to the week.
Best regards.

Ciao Danos, lovely composition with nice place, relaxing atmosphere, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Danos,

I think the title for this picture pretty much tells the story, this does look like THE place for a rest. :) Hard to compete with the setting, surrounded by water and bathed in sunlight, this would be a spot to sit and relax those weary traveling legs for a nice long time. Open, airy, and fresh...the simplicity of the scene makes a big point in understanding the relaxed atmosphere. Now, the only thing left is to order something to eat/drink. :) Enjoy the new day. Take care.

Friendly wishes,


Hi Danos,

Good pov and good frame to show seats on the coast, beautiful alone tree on the highland and flowers at the left, nice relaxing view in a sunny day, thanks for sharing.


Hello Danos,

you are right. This must be a perfect palce to have a rest. Very fine picture that reminds me my last summer holidays.TFS.

original composition with this place.Very good composition and quality, fine presentation.
Nice shot.

Hello Danos,
Yes, this looks like a very beautiful place for a break during your journey to your holiday destination.
It's definitely a perfect place for a picnic.
With both banks in the picture and the mountains on the background, the photo has very good depth.
Beautiful natural colours. Pretty inclusion of the flowers on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Danos,
This looks like the perfect place to have an afternoon drink while soaking up some sun. Your composition is nice using the trees to frame the scene. The water provides a nice backdrop for the tables. The lighting is good and the photo has nice sharpness and detail.

Hello, Danos!

Beautiful and pleasant place to take a rest and perhaps drink something! The plants in the foreground help giving very good depth to the image. Wonderful composition! Well done!

You added much subtlety to this paradisiac natural terrace by including the flowery reeds at foreground.
I consider this cloistered patio being the ideal alcove
for ministers resolving governmental impasses around an Ouzo bottle!

Hello Danos,

A superb resting place and a great phot also, well composed and with beautiful sun light and colours. The outdoor cafe is very inviting and the contrast of the brown and green of earth and the turquoise blue of the sea.

Regards, José.

Hi Danos.A beautiful post -- soothing the eyes, soothing the soul. The blue sky with white patches of cloud, benches overlooking the sea below with the gentle breeze all around. What more can one expect to have a real rest in this nice setting? What I know is, is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come.And it did come through your great work. TFS.

Hi Danos,
An idyllic landscape scene so very well captured in nice colors and beautifully composed. Your POV is very good; I really like the composition with the fresh looking landscape especially the dominant blu has brought so much liveliness to this shot, wonderful detail and contrasting so superbly against the white-blue sky. Indeed a peaceful and tranquil, I think we could live longer here! Superb photo.
Very well done.

Hi danos,
lovely place, I like having several layers of composition here with the two layers of land separated by the sea. Chairs and benches seem to be in a great place to enjoy the scenery. I would love to have a break there for lunch or tea.
Excellent work,

Hi Danos,
great view with spectacular composition, the colours and lights are very nice, the POV is splendid,

That place appears quiet indeed Danos, good inclusion of these flowers, bright hues, neat illustration

Quite agree with you, a perfect place to rest while enjoying views and sun

Well done, regards

Beautiful and it looks like a nice place to have a picnic watching the day go by. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Danos,

Not quite as spectacular as St Pauls Bay at Lindos on Rhodes but that is what this shot reminds me of. The same lovely ambiance and atmosphere, with the relaxing terrace view of the blue sea. Fantastic sharpness and color contrasts between the reddish brown fg and the blue sky and water. Tfs!
