Ioannina-Greece 05-13

Posted by
Dimitrios (ATHENS, Greece) on 26 February 2007 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The lake which touches the city of Ioannina is one of the main attraction points not only for the tourists, but the local population as well that visit it daily for peaceful walks. It was windy that day and the atmosphere was crisp and clear. Be careful now we don’t want you falling in!

I live by a lake - and I would love to spend some time on this one - the picture is very atmospheric - bright, windy, cool but sunny. And your composition of wall, boat, and rushes as horizontal divisions, with mountain to the right and hills to the left to frame the edges, plus those clouds scurrying across the sky for perspective - and those blues which are uniquely GREEK blues - well, it's just perfect!

Helen from Melbourne, Australia

What a beautiful scene Dimitios. I particularly enjoy the dynamic created by the reeds blown by the wind one way and the boat pointing in a different direction. Mmm, it makes me think of holidays.
