Doxa's Lake.It is artificial and is found in mountainous Korinthia,close beside in the historical monastery of Saint Georgiu of Feneou.It was created before ten years,in order to assembles waters around torrents.It hidden between in pines and in firs, in the valley of Feneou,between in mountainous volumes of Helmou,Durduvanas,Zirias,Gerondiu and Saitas.Was clearly manufactured for irrigatory reasons, but her beauty is big. It is supplied with waters by the homonym torrent Doxa.Despite the event that it is artificial,it has been identified with the environment and the bright green trees, firs and pines, which they reach up to water.

ΛΙΜΝΗ ΤΟΥ ΔΟΞΑ

Είναι τεχνητή και βρίσκεται στην ορεινή Κορινθία, δίπλα στο ιστορικό μοναστήρι του Αγίου Γεωργίου του Φενεού. Δημιουργήθηκε πριν από δέκα περίπου χρόνια, για να συγκεντρώνει τα νερά των τριγύρω χειμάρρων. Είναι κρυμμένη ανάμεσα στα πεύκα και στα έλατα, στην κοιλάδα του Φενεού, ανάμεσα στους ορεινούς όγκους του Χελμού, της Ντουρντουβάνας, της Ζήρειας, του Γερόντιου και της Σαϊτάς. Κατασκευάστηκε καθαρά για αρδευτικούς λόγους, αλλά η ομορφιά της είναι μεγάλη. Τροφοδοτείται με νερά από τον ομώνυμο χείμαρρο Δόξα. Παρά το γεγονός ότι είναι τεχνητή, έχει ταυτιστεί με το περιβάλλον και τα καταπράσινα δέντρα, έλατα και πεύκα, τα οποία φθάνουν μέχρι το νερό.

Γειάσου Δάνο.
Τελικά και τεχτιτές λίμνες γίνονται χαρά Θεού και ανθρώπων.
Πολυ ωραία οξύτητα και βάθος.
Σωστό, όμορφο καδράρισμα επίσης.
Μ'αρέσει που έχει σκιερά και φωτεινά σημεία.
Χαιρετώ.

Δάνο καλησπέρα.
Πανέμορφη και "ηρεμιστική" η φωτογραφία σου.
Πάρα πολυ καλό "γράψιμο" με υπέροχα χρώματα και έναν καταπληκτικό ουρανό.
Τέλεια η διαίρεση του κάντρου σου απο τον δρόμο που ξεκινάει απο την κατω αριστερό γωνία του κάντρου σου και τελειώνει στην μέση και λίγο δεξιά περίπου στα 2:3 και με την εκκλησία στο τέλος του.
Σε χαιρετώ

Beautiful mountain landscape, red-roofed cabin and blue sky. Excellent compo and POv.

J'aime cette composition qui a comme sujet principal cette petite église au bout de l'avancée dans le lac.
La nature est superbe avec l'eau, les montagnes et le ciel.

Here I like the colors very much. So fine saturated. Very good POV. I also like the clouds very much. TFS
Kind regards,

This is a very good composition Danos. The diagonal of the mountain on the left works very well with the diagonals from the path leading us into the scene. Good light, colours and sharpness.
Kath

Hi Danos, splendid view of this wonderful lake with good light and colors, I like the little building, very well done, ciao Silvio

well Danos my friend,
its a very nice one, but I trhink with a little more cropping it could be better, the pov is exelent, and the photojob too, but a little bit cropping and framing made this job better but thats my personal opinion.
gr. Jaap

Hi Danos,
Wonderful composition, well framed with the path to go to this lovely church, nice light, all is good in your photo, bravo.

Πανέμορφη φωτογραφία με προοπτική και πολύ όμορφα και ζωντανά χρώματα. Η εκκλησούλα στο τέλος του μικρού δρόμου φαίνεται υπέροχα. Πολύ καλή δουλειά.

Hi Danos,

A good POV of Doxa lake and of the small monastery, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Have anice day.

Pierre

Εξαιρετική φωτογραφία φίλε Δάνο.

Το καδράρισμα και η γωνία που διάλεξες είναι τα πιο κατάλληλα. Εξαιρετικά και τα χρώματα όσο και το σημείωμα.

Hi Danos - charming little chapel, and a delightful setting, the lake may be artificial but the monastery looks authentic.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
όμορφη οπτική γωνία που βοηθάει πάρα πολύ στην προοπτική. Όμορφα χρώματα σε ένα εξαίσιο περιβάλλον. Σε ευχαριστούμε που την μοιράστηκες μαζί μας. Χαιρετισμούς,

Here is a wonderful part of Greece I wish always to visit. The small house under the clouds looks fantastic qith the lake around. Very eyecatching stunning picture marvellous landscape frame. Best regards Efcharisto para poli. ihsan

iassou danos;
very interesting view , i would like to borrow the little path to go to the charming church with red roof.
well done

Hi Danos,

Nice photo, taken from a good POV, this curving little road starting in the corner nicely add's depth to the photo. And it leads to a place off interest, which pops out, due to the red rooftiles on that little chapel. All in all a very good composition, road in the corner, chapel off center, horizon at approx. 1/2 works well here! Colour and detail are from high standard..5D standard! It did a great job again, I can imagine you're very happy with it!
Which lenses do you have for it..the 24-105L only..or more? Just curious.

Regards,
Emiel.

Hi Danos,
A wonderful view over a very scenic place. The sense of piece and quiet is awesome, the pov is fabulous, with the smart position of the road leading to the church(?). The red of the roofs makes a very nice contrast and the almost unnoticeable human figure gives a touch of life on that deserted landscape.

Excellent picture through the fantastic perspective and depth, the way lead us to the background, to the splendid mountains with a lot green and lovely forests on the hills.
Fine and peaceful image. Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice weekend,

Γεια σου Δάνο!

Υπέροχη φωτογραφία με εξαιρετική σύνθεση και προοπτική. Η χρήση του μονοπατιου σαν "καθοδηγητική γραμμή" είναι για σεμινάριο! Καταπληκτικά χρώματα και εξαιρετική συνολική ποιότητα στη φωτογραφία σου. Συγχαρητήρια!

I do like how the eye is driven by the bright path until the eyecatcher building.
Sharpness and colors are spot on.
Nice job,

Iassou Danos,
A very nice view over the sunlit monastery with behind on the left the hills which create a diagonal and on the right the view over the little mountains which give a sense of depth to your image. Nice texture of the lake and good framing.

Attractive colours brought out by the good light!

Hi Danos. Wonderful photo. Your composition captures the beauty of this man made lake. Good colour and fine detail also. Thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Paul.

Γειά σου Δάνο
Βλέποντας τις φωτογραφίες σου δεν ήξερα από που να ξεκινήσω μέχρι που είδα κάτι γνώριμο. Πόλύ ωραία σύνθεση, το πράσινο φυτό κόβει λίγο την πορεία που δίνει ο δρόμος στο μάτι του θεατή αλλά καθόλα τα άλλα πολύ όμορφη σύνθεση.

Ο μοναχός στο μοναστήρι ψηλα πως σας δέχτηκε? Εμείς τον βρήκαμε πολύ φιλόξενο σε σημείο που άγγιζε επιχειρηματικό επίπεδο....

Danos,
This is a great shot of a nice scene. The red roof of the church adds nice contrast to the shot. The lighting and colors are great with nice sharpness and detail.

Hi Danos,

Hi Danos,
An extremeley well balanced photo of this wonderful and interesting landscape. The monastery adds irresistable charm and the clouds look heavenly. I like how the protruded road leads my eye to the building as well as how the slope of the left hill leads my eye also to the building. Congrats :)

Hi Danos,
A great composition, I like the perspective and the depth that creates the way that takes the look to us towards this small temple.
The lake, in spite of being artificial, gives many beauty to this landscape of mountains and nice forests.
You have worked well the exposure, and have obtained a great definition and a few natural colors.
Excellent work, I like it.
