Mikrolimano (little port) is 1km from the centre of Piraeus, close to the main port, the largest in Greece, but it's very peaceful and picturesque. In the port there are small fishing boats, sailing boats and luxurious yachts. All along the quay there are coffee bars and restaurants with a great variety of sea food. You feel so far away from the city wandering there (except if you're looking for a parking place.)
In ancient times the port was protected by Artemis. At the location of the goddess' temple now lies the building of the Yacht Club of Greece.
In the distance a part of the southern suburbs of Athens can be seen Along the slopes of Mount Hymettus.

Thank you for visiting

Hi dear Ourania

Your port sereis are very very admirable. White boats are very attractive with good contast of the blue sky and the blue sea.
This is alos great symbolic image for your great country.
Good framework to cover all the reflection, not cutting middle. Greatest job again!

Thanks for your sharing and have a good Sat.!

Kalimera Ourania,
Superb divided picture space, right with the rules: sea, sky and the nice marina with town houses decor the far side.
Have a nice weekend,

Ciao cara Ourania,
bella vista del piccolo porto con l'ottimo inserimento delle barche a rendere dinamica la scena.
Il mare in primo piano con i suoi quasi 2/3 del fotogramma, rispetta bene la regola dei terzi, dando profondità all'immagine.
Luce delicata che esalta la resa dei colori, dove il blu è il prevalente.

Ben fatto! Ti auguro un buon fine settimana!

Ciao Ourania
il porto è molto piacevole, ma ciò che fa la differenza, sono le due nuvole ed i tenui riflessi sull'acqua.
Il taglio verticale è ottimo per questa composizione.
Buona domenica
