Beautiful sunsets evidently don't require a Hasselblad.

One horizontal. One curve. One circle. One jagged graph. Truly elegant. Definitely something to "write home about"

Cant help but coming back to this picture. What do you mean, not that good? To my taste anyhow, this is by far the most beautiful sunset recording I´ve seen.

It takes off in the beautiful, rests for a while in the good and eventually lands in the divine

Some native poet, I don´t quite remember his name, wrote something like

"Those sudden and calm streets (roads, paths) that the setting sun throws over the sea"

I get the sense that it shouldn´t be impossible to walk over there, to the other side

Don´t use the w-word. But I say to myself in my native local idiom: "Dé vá som faen", which is the best I can do, "Góa gubbar allihop"

Most impressing, tasteful picture, full of beauty and wonder. Very strong. Thanks


Torgny

Thanks bahadir,, yes he has a spectacular view,, Kalamata is also famous for their Olive Oil, right now in my yard i cut down 80 Orange trees and left 12 only,, i am going to buy small olive trees from Kalamata and plant like 80 of them in my back yard, you know as i was driving to Kalamata you have to go up the 4th largest mountain in Greece (Mt Taygetus) to get there next time i will stop for a few pictures of the view
