Photographer's Note

Hi all,

This time, I share with you : the famous Porto Katsiki on Lefkada.
In many people their eyes the best beach on Lefkada island.

It's my favorite too. Although, for those who have been to Lefkada, I have to admit that I haven't been at Egremni beach, which also seems to be a nice beach..but..!

This beach
was in the top 5 Best Beaches of the World! as from an American Magazine (don't know which magazine), just like Myrtos Beach on Kefalonia, which I posted a few days ago!

The beach is very clean, the water crystalbright and turqouiseblue, as you can see. It's a narrow beach, backed up by huge cliffs.
A stair, which you can see on the left, brings you down to the beach.

Handheld shot @ 1/15th just after sunset, the blue hour started. Cliffs still catching warm light from the direction where the sun melted into sea minutes ago. It was quite cloudy at that moment. We also heard thunder coming, but it didn't really break out..we heard it in the distance, but it didn't come closer or just fainted away. Some rain fell down..but you wouldn't call it rain probably, just a few drops. I was glad it didn't start to rain harder..because of my camera!!

Maybe should have done some saturation aswell.

By the way, all those dark green/black spots on the cliffs, it's vegetation growing on the cliffs. So it's not due to compression. There are area's where the vegetation is more visible.


That's it, I hope you like it!
