taken from the waterfront of the lake Pamvotis during the sunset.A dreamily snapshot from The town of Ioannina with the seagulls to coming for sleeping on these constructions.
You can see here a larger,sharper and more detailed version of the photo.
Ioannina (Greek: Ιωάννινα,within Greece, is the capital and largest city of Epirus, an administrative region in north-western Greece, with a population of 112,486 (in 2011). It lies at an elevation of approximately 500 metres (1,640 feet) above sea level, on the western shore of lake Pamvotis (Παμβώτις). It is located within the Ioannina municipality, and is the capital of Ioannina regional unit and the region of Epirus. Ioannina is located 450 km (280 mi) northwest of Athens, 290 kilometres (180 miles) southwest of Thessaloniki and 80 km (50 miles) east of the port of Igoumenitsa in the Ionian Sea.
Founded by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian in the 6th century AD, Ioannina flourished following the Fourth Crusade, when many wealthy Byzantine families fled there in the early 13th century following the sack of Constantinople. It was part of the Despotate of Epirus from 1358 to 1416, before surrendering to the Ottomans in 1430. Between 1430 and 1868 the city was the administrative center of the Pashalik of Yanina. In the period between the 18th and 19th centuries, the city was a major center of the modern Greek Enlightenment.Ioannina joined Greece in 1913 following the Balkan Wars.
The city has both a General and a University Hospital, and is the seat of the University of Ioannina (situated 5 km (3 mi) south of the city, with 17 departments and 20,000 students) as well as several departments of the Τechnological Educational Institute of Epirus,the headquarters of which are located in Arta.
The city's emblem consists of the portrait of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian crowned by a stylized depiction of the nearby ancient theater of Dodona.

Delightful composition with the dreamy atmosphere. Nice view of the sea gulls resting. What are these constructions? "hotel" for the birds? Fabulous colour, delightful haze,

This is a very interesting photo. The colours of sunset are magnificent and create a slightly mysterious atmosphere. The constructions, whatever they are meant for, provide graphically very attractive features that I wouldn't expect to find here, and the resting seagulls add life and a certain charm. The strange constructions are also beautifully reflected in the purple wet sand. It's a very unusual and very elegant composition.
macjake (72593) 2016-04-17 11:10
now thats a different colour! its not too often we get to see this type of violet or purple hue.
and to have it reflected onto the water is even better.
very pretty scene

this photo is different to many other sunset pictures that I have been seen. I like the mysterious light and purple color tones in this situation. The seagulls seems to have a perfect place to rest in this strange metal construction. A well captured situation, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

μια πραγματικά μαγευτική εικόνα από τη φυσική καθημερινή ζωή στη Λίμνη Παμβώτιδα. Είναι συναρπαστικό να παρατηρούμε τα πουλιά σε διάφορες θέσεις μέσα στο κάδρο που το βάθος του καλύπτεται από ομίχλη. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ ο ήρεμος και φυσικός τρόπος με τον οποίο κατέκτησαν το ασυνήθιστο σκηνικό. Τα χρώματα και οι αντανακλάσεις είναι υπέροχα, η ευκρίνεια εντυπωσιακή. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

There is indeed a dreamy quality in this photo, with the Seagulls perched on the metal frame. I did not know about birds actually floating and presumably sleeping on the surface of the water as they appear to be in this photograph.
Tue (43454) 2016-04-17 13:10
Wow, what a magnificent mood you captured here, thanks to the wonderful colours and the really special lighting. The gulls, all finding a place to rest, add to the lovely, calm atmosphere.
Fis2 (106438) 2016-04-17 13:22
Great atmosphere, color is impressive.
Very impressive picture.
Nice new week.

Bonsoir, cher Danos,
Elle est belle et enchanteresse cette composition. Tout droit sortie d'un rêve éveillé.
pierrefonds (71153) 2016-04-17 18:56
The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The presence of the seagulls is anumating the scene. The sunset is givng nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (57728) 2016-04-17 22:35
Astonishing view of the lakescape at late hour of day where the grand scale is accentuated by the structures and the lively flocks carefully situated in the frame. Certainly a placid scene and a perfect location of a shooter for the sheer serenity uplifting the spirit! Lovely soft pastel tones, layers and bit of reflection further add to the sensation. Your handling of light is seamless as usual, Impressive shot, Congrats.
jemaflor (103135) 2016-04-17 23:18
Great light and colors, pleasant sunset and original scene with these birds, nice reflections on sea, tfs.
ikeharel (78343) 2016-04-18 0:37
Amazing golden sunse scenery, the prevailing tones convey well a bit of melancholic ambioance - but the result is awesome.
Apparently, seagulls always take a group "nap" on similar structure near or upon water. They may feel more secure this way.
Beautiful minute on photo.
jmdias (68691) 2016-04-18 1:49
very special image using well the shapes of these structures, the seagulls and the pink hues of the sunset. very well done and beautiful. TFS.
jhm (160057) 2016-04-18 3:58
The seagulls have a nice place found, but the pink colours make your picture wonderful.
Perfect perspective and depth picture.
An excellent daily life picture.
Your picture is a lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice new week,
alvaraalto (20328) 2016-04-18 5:02
I love the orange-purple combination in horizontal layers.
The sleeping seagulls give the picture a very strong graphical scene.
Sergiom (88355) 2016-04-18 6:06
Quelle belle composition. La couleur du ciel et de l'eau est tout simplement géniale. Ces formes sont superbes et minimalistes et supportent bien les nombreux oiseaux.

Noel_Byrne (33634) 2016-04-18 7:26
This is such a calm and relaxing view with an almost minimalist feeling to it. The color is most unusual too, making this photo beautifully unique
rychem (42658) 2016-04-18 7:54
Beautiful and romantic shot, amazing colors, small difference between the water and the sky, great graphism of these iron constructions, very well observed
adramad (49556) 2016-04-18 10:01
A very original and colorful composition delicious, a nice effect of all those birds uploaded in the frame, the horizon line is well appreciated, but both the sea and the sky are the same color.
Very good management of lighting and very good sharpness.
Well done. I like it.
I wish you a nice week.

Good discovery and good frame to show birds that living in a modern city, they are not only perching on the tree and land, but also on the manmade rack, fascinating view with this fantastic color tones, distinct photo, good shoot.

Amazing repetition of the roosting seagulls with a stunning sunset backdrop. The saturated warm colors of pink, orange and magenta are superb. Tfs!

worldcitizen (9382) 2016-04-22 11:16
This is such a lovely photo with those soft, pastel colors. The simplicity of this scene makes it feel very peaceful. I like all the birds, and the structures they are resting on. There is definitely some magic in this photo. :-)
PaulVDV (32641) 2016-04-26 11:29
Very strange constructions in the sea or perhaps on the flooded beach.
However ideal for the seagulls to rest a while or perhaps even suitable as a sleeping place for the night.
A magnificent gradation of light orange at the top of the picture to purple at the bottom.
These tones certainly create a special mood.
Best regards, Paul

This is a wonderful shot! I like the colours, the birds resting and this incredible sense of peacefulness. Wonderfully captured!
iainsp (3298) 2016-11-29 4:16
Beautiful light in a well managed and well composed picture. The stark, metal structures with the resting birds add a lovely silhouette. Nice work, Iain
