Hi friends,
Been a while since my last upload. Hope all is well here...
This one is taken in one of the most beautiful bays of the cute and small Greek island Symi (Simi) while I was sailing there. Heading south along the east coast is a narrow inlet at DISSALONIAS, also called AGIOS GIORGIOS. It has no overland access and is visited only by boat. The beach is a narrow strip of shingle and pebble,it is backed by a sheer 300m vertical cliff drop.

Hi Selen
I am glad to see you back ;-) I think you are the last member after the break. I hope that we will see Paul and Rob soon. As for the photo. First of all beautiful water color, good exposure in a strong sun. Nicely composed image from a beautiful place
Best wishes

Hello Selen,
Ah...the beach parasol. We know where you've been now.
Must be great there. Hopefully there are not a lot of tourists as it's close to Rhodos after all.
Well done

Hello Selen,
Nice to see you back on TN!
I think if I could take suck a fine view of the Aegean and the cliff of a greek Island I would also be absent for some time:)).
The water looks vey inviting in this fine composition of limestone, seawater and sky.
TFS this delight,
best wishes, Ivan

Welcome back stranger:-) I see you brought some clear blue water with you. Never go anywhere without good water I always say...I wouldn't mind being in it but climbing out with bare feet looks a bit hazardous with those rocks...gotta have flip-flops...Very nice..Now I feel like summer has come to an end too soon. I would just love to visit here based on the image alone...Very nice...

Nice contrast between the water , land and sky with everything nice and sharp. Thanks for sharing part of your holiday and making those who had to work jealous. Just joking!! Hope you had a good time there.

Hello Selen,
I'm glad you're back with us again!! It must be wonderful to sail around the Greek islands!
Beautiful capture of the blue/turqoise water and the steep cliff. Amazing to see some conifers growing on the steep side! A fine composition in wonderful colours.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Merhaba Selen hanım, sizi aramızda yeniden görmek ne güzel. Bu arada "1 aylık kısa ara" içerisinde nerelerde gezdiğinizi de öğrenmiş olduk:). Gerçekten nefis bir sahil manzarası. Elinize sağlık.


Hola Selen.
Una panorámica excelente.
Impresionante silueta la de esta parte de la isla que se aprecia en la imagen.
Un saludo, JL.

Merhaba Selen,
Delighted again to see your posting after a while!
With the sailing boat in the image we see the scale of the mighty rock and cliff of it! sure a nice place to venture out with camera!
many thanks for the sharing
take good care and sincere regards

Merhaba Selen,
Good to see you back here, but as we can see, you were really busy sailing over these paradisiac islands!
Excellent composition, light is beautiful, and I like the transparent waters and the green&blues hues seen on it.
Great work and thanks for the post.
My best regards,

Hi Selen.
A show of picture!
Excellent colors and composition.
Magnificent DOV and very good POV.
Perfect combination of elements!
A painting of the nature!
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Selen

A great Mediterranean view - the bare limestone and crystal claer water - you have also managed to convey the heat! Lovely work.


Merhaba Selen, nice see you again on TN, splendid sea view with fantastic colors, wonderful trasparence of water, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Selen,
Great to see you back. I did miss you wonderful photos from those awesome trips you make. But it is always good to see something from your own neck of the woods.
The simplicity of this photo makes it a very strong one. I love the clarity of the water and the sharp edge of rock and sky.

Hi Selen,
Wonderful seascape. Nice saturation and POL has cut the galer from the water too. Have nice time sailing along the beautiful coast. TFS

To swim in water that blue would be a treat. This seascape shot is very well composed Selen.
I like how the waves sort of direct into the center.
A nice trip you had...but I know you would much rather be at work.

Great shot, Excellent sharpness, and composition. Good job.
Best wishes,

I reeeaaaally want to swim in that sea :-))
Excellent colours that are so vibrent and pleasing.
Great composition and exposure.

Dear Selen,
Unique composition of land & sea with crystal clear water of the bay. I like the small beach point seen with an umbrella on the mid left corner. What are the two dark patches inside the water... clouds/corals ! TFS.

Merhaba Selen,
a splendid sea landascape taken from an excellent POV, great sharpness and lighting, fantastic colours, well composed.
Best regards.
