This is my second photo which was taken during our holiday in Greece. This is a view of a small natural bay on Skiathos - beautiful Greek island. I think it is nice to see such views during short, cold days like for example now in Poland :)

The wikipedia, the free encycylopedia:
Skiathos (Greek: Σκιάθος, Latin forms: Sciathos and Sciathus) is a small island in the Aegean Sea belonging to Greece. Skiathos is the westernmost island in the Northern Sporades group of islands. The mainland of Greece and Magnesia lie to the west, while the island of Skopelos lies to the east. The name of the island dates back to ancient times.
The Municipality of Skíathos includes the islands of Tsougria and Tsougriaki, and of the islets of Maragos, Arkos, Troulonisi and Aspronisi. Total land area of the island is 50 km². The major settlement on the island is the town of Skiathos (pop. 4,988 in 2001), while other settlements are Χanemos (195), Kalyvia (179), Troulos (159), and Koukounaries (126).
Despite its small size (under 50 km²), Skiathos is a popular tourist destination. It has over 60, chiefly sandy, beaches scattered along the coastline of about 44 km.
The island has roughly rhomboid shape, elongated in southwest-northeast direction. The longer diagonal is about 12 km long, and the island is about 6 km wide in average. The coast is interspersed with numerous inlets, capes and peninsulas. The terrain is hilly, more rugged on north, and the highest point is at the altitude of 433 m. Southern and southeast parts have gentler slopes, and most of settlements and facilities are located there. The main road runs along southern and eastern coast of the island, with several smaller and dirt roads reaching the inland and northern coast. The town of Skiathos and the airport are located at the northern part of the island's eastern side. Tsougria and all other main islets are located a few kilometres off the eastern coast, and are visible from the town.
Much of the island is forested. The area around the villages and the town are farmland. The island's forests are pine and are concentrated in the southeastern part of the island. The island of Skopelos can be seen from Skiathos with the more distant islands of Euboea and Skyros also visible in clearer conditions. The mountaintop, which has a communications tower, is to the west.

Hello Maciej
bel paesaggio marino in cui sei riuscito a far risaltare al meglio luce e colori.

Oh Maciek
I am sure this must be as close to paradise as what can be. How beautiful is the view in front of me? It looks so clean, pure and unpolluted. I can almost smell the fresh air that surrounds this wonderful place. The natural sunlight in this image is just super and brightens up this landscape even more. I am sure just being there feels like being in dreamland. Thanks for sharing this little piece of bliss. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Maciek,

Fine bright colors but a pity some rocks are over exposed.

Hi Maciej,

The rocks and the trees are framing well the bay. The point of view is showing the derails and colors of the rocks and of the bay. The late morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
