Strolling during the sunset on the waterfront of Oropos village i saw a lot of beautiful moments as you can see.

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


The sanctuary for the oracle of Amphiaraus at Oropos is east of Delphi, northeast of Athens
Oropos was founded by colonists from Eretria; it was either located in or identical with Graea.In ancient times, it was a border city between Boeotia and Attica, and its possession was a continual cause of dispute between the two states; but ultimately it came into possession of Athens, and was always an Attic town, even during the Roman Empire. The actual harbour, which was called Delphinium, was at the mouth of the Asopus, about a mile (1.6 km) north of the city.

The famous oracle of Amphiaraus was situated in the territory of Oropus, 12 stadia from the city. The site has been excavated by the Greek Archaeological Society,it contained a temple, a sacred spring, into which coins were thrown by worshippers, altars and porticoes, and a small theatre, of which the proskenion is well preserved. Worshippers used to consult the oracle of Amphiaraus by sleeping on the skin of a slaughtered ram within the sacred building

Witaj Danos!
Excellent colours and framing.
Wonderful climate.
Good work.
Nice day

Hi Danos,
The mirrorin color palette of the sky and the sea with the sole fishing boat is a great composition. Thanks and best regards,

Hi Danos,
What a superb atmosheric shot.An excellent composition.TFS.


Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Un grand moment photographique réalisé.
Admiration !
Très bonne journée.

Hi Danos,

Three in row!
I've never seen so many sunsets and all utterly beautiful in their own unique way.
Your shot has a fine gradation of colours from left to right which is quite unusual on a sunset, where we usually get the colours coming down the screen.
The little fishing boat is perfectly placed for a pleasing focal point and adds human interest.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

what impressed me here was the division of the blue side and the red side of the sky while the little boat is the cherry of the cake. fantastic compo, well done and showing well a special moment of nature.



Hello Danos,
very good evening atmosphere, picturesque sunset, good comment, well done!

many Greetings

Hi Danos,
Such lovely shades of sunset, beautifully composed with the boat just in the right spot. Magnificent shot !


Hi Danos,

The presence of the boat has an effect of scale. The wideness of the sea is giving depth to the composition. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky and to the sea. A good way to relax, have a nice day.


Bonjour Danos,

Il se dégage une très belle atmosphère de cette composition. Le coucher de soleil est bien placé dans on coin de cadre et permet d'apprécier le beau bleu du ciel au dessus de la barque.



Γεια σου Δάνο,
Και κοντά και ιδιο θέμα σήμερα,
εχεις δικιο μόνο που η δική σου φώτο ειναι καταπληκτική
με εντυπωσιακά χρώματα υπέροχες αντανακλάσεις
και εκπέμπει μια απέραντη γαλήνη

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
αναρωτιέμαι αν αυτή είναι η βάρκα που ξεκουραζόταν στο φόντο της προηγούμενης φωτογραφίας σου. Μόνο αυτή και το μακρινό τοπίο θυμίζουν την περιοχή, η σύνθεση, τα χρώματα και η ατμόσφαιρα έχουν αλλάξει δραματικά. Μου αρέσουν πολύ τα βαθιά χρώματα και η υποβλητική ατμόσφαιρα, η γεμάτη χάρη ισορροπία μέσα σε ένα κάδρο απλό ακριβώς όσο χρειάζεται. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

Great colors harmony, Danos - this is a word from music-world that came to mind when first saw this.
From golden light to blue darkening side of the bay, the boat as a focal point - culminate wonderfully on picture.

Hello Danos,

What a beautiful picture with a great peaceful mood due to the nice colors and the composition with the lonely boat on the sea!
I really like this picture.

Hello Danos,
The sunset colors on the water and in the sky are terrific. I like the gradual progression from warm to cold colors and from light to dark.

Dear Danos
It has a very nice atmosphere of this composition. The sunset is placed in one corner of frame and allows to appreciate the beautiful blue sky above the boat. romantick atmosphere


Hi Danos
sweet shot!
love the atmosphere and the large open expanse of the sky, its a beauty!

really like the way the landscape becomes lower from right to left, across the frame.

outstanding color arrangement and overall exposure.
sweet shot!

Dear Danos,

Colours are very good. But where is the sun? Probably went behind the clouds. Very good picture. The shadow of clouds on the water is very good. Composition is also nice.


Hi Danos,
A very beautiful and attractive colour combination with the red-orange sunset against the blue part of the sky. A very peaceful and calm scene and also a very interesting note.
Kind regards

Hi Danos,
Marvelous Sunset, the little boat is very well positioned in the right, excellent colors too, well done!

Hello Danos,
Twice the colours range wonderfully from warm tones to deep blue, in the sky and in the sea.
You placed the boat on the right spot on the picture.
Very well composed.
Best regards, Paul
