Just came from the island of Lemnos,sitting in the northern part of the Aegean Sea.

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

Lemnos island

Lemnos (Greek: Λήμνος, Limnos) is an island of Greece in the northern part of the Aegean Sea. Administratively the island forms a separate municipality within the Lemnos regional unit, which is part of the North Aegean region. The principal town of the island and seat of the municipality is Myrina.[2] At 477 square kilometres (184 sq mi), it is the 8th-largest island of Greece.

Myrina port

Myrina (Greek: Μύρινα) is a former municipality on the island of Lemnos, North Aegean, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Lemnos, of which it is a municipal unit. It covers the west coast of the island, and has a land area of 82.049 square kilometres (31.679 sq mi), about 17.2% of the island's area. Its municipal seat was the town of Mýrina (pop. 5,107 at the 2001 census), located in the middle of the island's west coast. The town is also the capital of Lemnos, as well as the seat of the Metropolitan (Greek Orthodox bishop) of Lemnos.
According to Herodotus, when the Chersonese on the Hellespont came under Athens' rule, Miltiades the son of Cimon came from Elaeus on the Chersonese to Lemnos where he proclaimed the Pelasgians must submit. The Hephaestians obeyed, giving up their city Hefaestia, but the Myrinaeans from the city Myrina would not be as easily pursued until they too submitted to Athens, thus given control of the island to Miltiades and the Athenians.

Hi Danos,very nice view of the port of Myrina,lovely like others small greek ports. A lot of boats in August,but looks quiet too wathcing the pier without a lot of people.Bright colors and fine details as usual.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour Danos
Une belle carte postale de ce port qui n'a pas l'air surpeuplé en plein d'août. La montagne forme un abri naturel pour la rade et est joliment coiffée avec des nuages blancs.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

Hi Danos. A most alluring scene of this port basking in the sun while the sea murmurs gently. Lovely vibrant colours but the predominance of white makes the scene light hearted. Even the fluffy clouds contribute to the relaxing mood. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Danos,
Very beautiful port scene. I like the colors and the contrasts. Well taken.


Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
De port en port, j'aime toujours autant vos compositions respirant beauté et sérénité.
Très bonne journée.

Dobar dan.
Lep pogled, interesantan i dobar tekst, o ostrvu i luci sa istorijom i opisom ...
Lepo pokazana luka sa camcima i kucama na obali, dobra ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa oblacima.
Lepi camci i arhitektura.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Good day.
Nice view, interesting and good text, about the island and port with a history and description ...
Nice demonstrated harbor with boats and houses on the coast, good sharpness, contrast and perspective, nicely captured the moment with clouds.
Beautiful boats and architecture.
Nice afternoon and all the best for the weekend, good luck.

Helo Danos,
It's a wonderful shot of the Harbour, I like much the vivid colors of the boats and the nice moutains in the background, well done.

Hi Danos,

The length of the per is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the boats, of the houses and of the mountains. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello, Danos!

Beautiful view of the port and all the colors and details of the boats, and a beautiful sky too! Excellent contrast and perspective! Wonderful composition!

Hi Danos

There must be a different island for every day of the year in Greece and then some! I've been fortunate enough to visit a couple dozen of them. Visitors and locals are spoilt for choice! Wonderful reflections with good sharpness and saturation, with nice repetition of the colorful moored boats. Tfs.

Γειά σου Δάνο,
Πολύ ομορφη φώτο απο το λιμάνι της γραφικής Λήμνου,
με πολύ ωραία χρώματα και πολλά χαρακτηριστικά στοιχεία

Bonjour Danos,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. C'est la Grèce dans tout ce qu'elle a d'attirant pour tous les touristes en été.Les couleurs sont vraiment belles et estivales.



Black rocky hills behind stand good contrast to the FG view of the marina and boats, Danos.
Also, achieved excellent depth with the pier stretchs on right side, exquisite POV chosen.

Hi Danos
très jolie vue sur le port, les montagnes rocheuses au fond, bonne perspective du chemin, belle lumière et couleurs très agréable
belle journée

Καλημέρα Δάνο,
εξαιρετική η απόδοση των λεπτομερειών και των χρωμάτων, θαυμάσια αυτή η λαμπερή άποψη του γραφικού λιμανιού της Μύρινας. Μου αρέσει επίσης πολύ ο τρόπος που εξισορρόπησες τις διαστάσεις, το βάθος και τις προοπτικές καθώς και ο καταμερισμός φωνεινών και σκούρων χρωμάτων. Φαίνεται πολύ ωραίο και ενδιαφέρον μέρος. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου μέρα,

un bon cadrage qui nous montre bien l'ensemble de ce port

Hi, Danos,
Your photo is very provocative for me, it calls me to the next trip. But I can't do it, just very busy.
Excellent and very clever composition with the bright colors and fine details of the shore line of Myrina.

Best wishes!

A beautiful work.
