  2. This is so peaceful and serene, Jim. I’ve just been sitting here staring at it for several minutes. I’m just amazed at the clarity in the whole shot. Even the mountains in the distance are sharp. I love the village….oh those gorgeous houses! And the harbor….it’s all so perfectly detailed.
    Then the foreground is as clear and sharp as the rest of the photo; it gives such a great perspective to the shot. The land in the foreground gives one’s eye a place to latch onto, then connect to the harbor/village, the water and mountains beyond. What a lovely way for my eyes to travel through this photo. Discovering each beautiful part, and then the sweeping grand vista in total. What a ride! Thanks for a great photo.

    • Thanks for your praise Judy. I do love this place. The local restaurants serve fresh fish, caught earlier that morning. Superb.
