This photo was taken during our stay in Greece. There was one beautiful trip to Skiathos - great island. From Skiathos, there were some nice vievs like this...

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.
This is my next photo from Skiathos. Some small island. Don't You dream about something like this :)
During winter in Poland it's very nice view. Have a nice weekend to everybody from TE.

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.

Ciao Maciek, my today neighbour, lovely composition with fantastic island, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Bardzo ciekawe wydaje się wyspy w środku nigdzie, ale to charakter każdego Wyspy nie? Dobry wieczór Maciej! To jest tak miły, aby dowiedzieć się tutaj o ziemi i miejsca! Dzięki za to. Miejsce wydaje się zupełnie i piękne. Bajkowe i niespodziewanie w moim przekonaniu takiej małej wyspie. Dobry naturalnych kolorów i szczegółów! Dziękujemy za dzielenie się ponownie i miłego weekendu!
Pozdrowienia dla wszystkich w domu!

Hi Maciej,

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the island then toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the island. the afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hola Maciej

Bella composición aunque se te ha caido el horizondo un poco hacia la izquierda. Contrastes estupendos y buena presentación.

Un saludo de Antonio
