By the sea

The name of Kallithea comes from the beautiful location where the village is located, wonderful sea and a forest full of pine trees. Kallithea is the most popular village in Halkidiki, with amazing sea view and is surrounded by pine forest. Aegean blue sea and green forest. There is an archaeological site with the temple of Dionysus, the Nymphs, and Ammon Zeus. Lens-Artists Challenge #149 – Cool Colors – Blue and Green May colors and letters blue, green

Balcony Flowers

blooming flower garden on the balcony Easy to grow are geraniums, impatiens, petunias, dianthus, pansies, violas, strawberries, herbs. Create your small garden space with just a few potted plants and enjoy greenery and colors, all times of the day and all seasons. and watering can be a fun, especially photographing water drops on petals Balcony flower gardens are a great place to relax, connect with nature, to sit with a cup of coffee, tea, ice cream, gather with family, friends, read a book, paint, photograph, skywatching, stargazing, even small grill. With few pots you can make micro-garden full of color, fragrance and atmosphere. If you are not lucky to have beautiful view you can create privacy with plants climbers or hanging pots.

Birds

Beautiful and graceful birds. While I was photographing the sea, Swan pair came swimming, so much fun watching bird elegance and synchronized swimming. Swans performing a courtship ritual, in which the male and female face each other and bow their heads, forming a heart shape with both of their necks. I have read that if the young seagull is very scared and does not try to fly, then the parents do not give him food to make young to try to fly with them. Very interesting how adult birds getting very excited are making loud calls to encourage young. Geese are very loyal, they mate for life and are very protective of their partners and offspring.Ducks are so cute they look like they are smiling. And little ladybugs on the beach.

Wildflowers

Photographing wildflowers Focus on one flower so that it will be the sharpest part of the image, zoom in and capture only the flower with a nice blurred background. Be creative and try flower photography – artistry. Try some different angles for more interesting images, playful flowers and dancing leaves. On my short walks in my neighborhood I stop to make photos of wildflowers in green parts on sidewalks of street or grass lawn in small park with a mix of wildflowers. Dandelions are so beautiful like little suns. You can capture bees, bugs, butterflies, spiders on flowers with great detail, even little sparows that loves flower seeds. Enjoy the wildflowers in full bloom right now. Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #142 – You Pick It!CMMC – April Close Up or Macrocolors and letters – letter D (wildflowers)

By the sea

The sea is a perfect hideaway, my favorite place for every season, fresh and soothing the body, mind and soul, feelings of joy, calm, and peaceful, sound of waves, the smell of salt water,  thalassotherapy 🙂 (Hippocrates first used the word thalassotherapy to describe the healing effects of seawater, thalassa – sea) Lens Artists Photo Challenge – My Hideaway photo a daycolors and letters
