One more watermill at Livadia city.
Livadia is a city in central Greece. It is the capital of the prefecture Boeotia. Livadeia is located 130 km NW of Athens, E of Nafpaktos, ESE of Amfissa and Desfina, SE of Lamia and west of Chalkida. Livadeia is linked with GR-48 and several kilometres west of GR-3. The area around Livadeia are mountainous while farmlands are mainly in valley areas. Levadia's industry are urban and rural in the outskirts.
Pausanias, writing in the 2nd century CE, reported that the original name of the city was Mideia, and that it took its name Lebadeia from Lebedos of Athens, who moved the city to its current location on the banks of the Herkyna river (Bk IX.39). The sacred protector of the city was the hero/god Trophonios, whose oracle, involving a harrowing descent into an underground chamber, was famous beyond the borders of Greece. At the springs of the Herkyna river are shallow grottos with niches and marble remnants said to be the site of the oracle. On the hill above is a small medieval castle, mostly the work of the Catalan Company during the 14th century, accessible by foot. Further west, commanding a dramatic view from the hill of Profitis Ilias, are the remains of a large temple of Zeus Basileus, perhaps begun in the 3rd century BCE but never completed.The cathedral church of St. George houses an important relic, a head of St. George, translated to Venice in the 15th century but restored to Livadeia as a gesture of interfaith cooperation in 1999.In medieval times the river was lined by a series of water mills, one of which is preserved.

Nice photo; i think if you use a low speed shutter will be more nice to give the water a nice waterfall effect.

Γειά σου Πέτρο,
ωραία η φωτογραφία σου,μου αρέσει η επιλογή του σημείου λήψης και η προοπτική,καλός και ο φωτισμός που παρ'όλο το f13 δεν υπάρχουν υποφωτισμένα σημεία στα σκιώδη μέρη,

Not easy to do a slow shutter speed with light in front of you, that gave a white sky, but it also gave a nice effect on the falling water. The diagonal of the structures gives dynamism to the picture.

Very picturesque image illustrated through a perfect POV. Well catch, enjoy a nice day.

Πέτρο γεια σου,
ωραίο το σκηνικό με το νερόμυλο να τον έχεις τοποθετήσει σωστά στο κάδρο.Δύσκολη η γωνία λήψης σου που μας δείχνει ένα μεγάλο μέρος της πλευράς αυτής της πόλης της Λειβαδιάς.

Good frame and perspective.
I like colours.

Other side of the old water-mill, well shown from this POV, Peter.
The wall with water pouring is most impressive in picture.

Vrlo interesantan i dobar tekst o vodenici i istoriji starog grada ...
Lepo mesto i trenutak, lep pogled na vodenicu i vodu koja se sliva preko zida, lepa fotografija.
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i prikaz lepim bojama.
Very interesting and good article on the history of the old mill town ...
Nice place and time, a beautiful view of the mill and the water flowing over the wall, beautiful images.
Severity Good shot, nice contrast and color display.

Ben controllata la luce,

nice theme, an interesting construction of watermill. Good composition and presentation. Photo well done. I like it.
Have a nice day.
adramad (27556) 2011-11-18 7:51
A wonderful composition with the image of this old mill, I like the POV that gives a nice perspective, the effect of that ideal water falling vertically along the wall.
I was not very easy to the angle of light, but you've solved solvency, very natural beautiful color.
Have a happy weekend.
Longroute (19390) 2011-11-18 8:39
Another interesting old mill well preserved and with a nice architecture. The stone walls offer fine textures and the light present is very good. I like how you have taken both the building and the waterfall which create a good sense of depth.
also the walls where the water and the stones below falls offer interesting details.
Quite a good work,
nobuikehonda (3846) 2011-11-18 8:55
The lovely waterfall as a foreground works very well together with the watermill. I like very much how you have organized the entire image so skilfully. The waterfall is not overpowering the mill. The foreground is very effective but you didn’t forget the main interest here, which is the watermill. The understated presence of the mill is really nice. This is where the title and the provided visual material work together most effectively. The natural colour rendering is another aspect of the photo that I like very much.
With my very best wishes,
Have a very nice Friday evening, Peter
La_Tulipe (2786) 2011-11-18 10:08
Une excellente perspective et un drapé de chute d'eau que tu as photographié avec talent. Des couleurs naturelles et bien exposées.
Giorgio (11263) 2011-11-18 10:19
- Another superb composition on mill Peter, perspective adds an indisputable more to this nice picture, well done!

Kielia (20477) 2011-11-19 5:33
this almost painting like image conveys a great atmosphere! I like the moody colors very much and the gentle light is also very nice. The perspective of this interesting architecture is excellent. My compliments!

Geia sou dear Peter
I like your series on this old watermill. It's very characteristic, I can imagine you could spend all day there quite easily. Lovely colours, good management of the shaded area and I like th low POV you uysed (sitting on the parpaet there?).
Wonderful shot, have a beautiful Sunday
dino94 (767) 2011-11-20 7:15
beautiful composition with an excellent prospect, development well by this water wall, which guides us towards the mill.
gunbud (34052) 2011-11-20 16:17
Lovely wide view of this lovely old architecture.
The water wheel is well placed allowing for a clear view of the falls that powers it.
Rich textures and sharp details to this fine scene.
papagolf21 (76611) 2011-11-21 0:54
Bonjour, cher Peter,
Excellent sujet parfaitement présenté et étonnant de beauté.
L'ambiance générale est joliment mise en valeur.
Un grand merci pour le partage.
gildasjan (38232) 2011-11-21 6:22
Très bonne perspective sur cet ancien moulin à eau.Il semble qu'il n'y a plus beaucoup dans cette canalisation.
clic (11045) 2011-11-21 12:06
Geia sou Peter and thanks for your visit.
Here is a piece of art, given the angled point of view on this histiric building, depicted with fine shaded details and, of course, straight verticals!
An appealing romantic mood!
josepmarin (55063) 2011-11-22 1:10
by means of this visual angle you offer us the interesting architecture of the water mill, in an elegant diagonal with a good perspective, which give dynamism and depth to the composition.
I like the effect of the water falling down in the wall, the game of light and shades and the natural colors in this clear image.
A nice work.
raszid62 (18216) 2011-11-22 1:42
Θαυμάσια φωτογραφία του παλιού μύλου πέτρα. Rush του νερού, σκιά ... Ελληνική μια καυτή ημέρα, ένα μεγάλο μέρος για να χαλαρώσετε, αλλά και να λειτουργεί καλά. Μεγάλη σύνθεση των χρωμάτων και εξαιρετική ποιότητα. Δικός σου.
jlbrthnn (79773) 2011-11-22 2:47
The streaming of the water gives an aspect amazing in the masonry. The well chosen point of view, and the neatness give a lot of depth. I like the composition which describes pleasantly this former(ancient) construction. Excellent light, colors and neatness. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Cricri (86535) 2011-11-22 9:10
Très joli ce mur avec les jets d'eau bien mis en cadrage, la perspective du petit mur guidant le regard vers ces habitations simple dans un joli environnement, très belle présentation et note
sacimar (25957) 2011-11-22 9:10
another interesting image of this watermill, I like the point of view you chose here, the stone house is beautiful too, well seen,
Zengi001 (2097) 2011-11-22 10:48
You have the motion of the waterfall as well as
the stillness of the old mill in one frame.
Nice shot, well done..
baddori (18988) 2011-11-22 22:27
La ruota gira ...ma penso che il mulino non dia macinato .
I colori tenui ed il riflesso degli alberi sull'acqua .
Una composizione che mostra ..un mondo passato ..ma fotograficamente interessante .
kato (6801) 2011-11-23 3:22
You're capturing well this scape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see old house/wall and watermill. This is a tasteful work.
williewhistler (7317) 2011-11-23 12:23
Hello Peter,you have some nice lines that lead into the old mill and water wheel giving the picture great depth and lots of interest.
Best regards Les.
boa (4313) 2011-11-23 13:47
watermills are very interesting in my opinion. A genius invention and a simple construction but very effectful. Very sharp and clear shot with a pleasant atmosphere. Well done!
jemaflor (69035) 2011-11-25 0:49
Well framed from a good angle, interesting depth with the view of the diagonal, nice effect with water, tfs.

jhm (122490) 2011-11-28 3:46
A pity almost all the water mills are disappear, truly a nostalgia out of the previous century..
Perspective and depth image through the excellent choice of your angle.
Excellent compostion, fine taken care off.
Ver well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
krzychu30 (8935) 2011-11-28 7:49
I´ve just watched both your photos of this windmill.Both are unique and presents this place in a different way.I like this one in regard to its excellent chosen POV.The flowing water in the FG looks amazing.I like also this kind of old,stone architecture.It must be really captivating place.
Have a good evening

Hi Peter,great capture of this waterwall,i like your time of exposure,perfect to create this silk effect ,excellent sharpness,and great light balance and perspective.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
shevchenko (18243) 2011-11-30 0:47
Good frame to show a beautiful pond and old wall with falling water, what a quite corner that full with relaxing feel and poetic flavour, lovely old architecture in background too, distinct image, good shoot.
Atousa (7097) 2011-11-30 7:32
Nice to see the watermill from this angle too.. great pov n sense of depth.. interesting details as well.. good work.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
pierrefonds (48387) 2011-12-04 19:08
The trees are framing well the water mill. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the mill. The light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (26311) 2011-12-04 21:19
I am back again after a short break.
I prefer this image for its great depth, perspective and diagonal touch. The falling water motion
blur and the colour fits right in and actually makes this image and thanks to your fairly slow speed.
Excellent balanced exposure, clarity and contrast. A fine shot, well done.
kordinator (13411) 2011-12-07 1:50
Nice place and time, a beautiful view of the mill and the water flowing over the wall, beautiful images.
Very interesting and good article on the history of the old mill town.
High quality image
ourania (12469) 2011-12-20 11:31
πολύ ωραία αυτή η φωτογραφία! Η γωνία λήψης είναι πολύ προσεκτικά επιλεγμένη κα επιτυχημένη γιατί καταφέρνει να συμπεριλάβει ένα τόσο μεγάλο χώρο χωρίς να θυσιάζει την εστίαση σε πολλές επιμέρους λεπτομέρειες. Επίσης είναι εντυπωσιακό πώς κατάφερες να εξισορροπήσεις το δυνατό φως και την πυκνή σκιά αποκαλύπτοντας την ομορφιά αυτού του χώρου. Μου αρέσει πολύ η ατμόσφαιρα και η δροσιά του.
Vasa (15990) 2012-02-14 16:12
Like your last photo, it is a great witness to the old activities. It is impossible to find such motif in my country. Many thanks Peter. Have the best continuation.
maloutim (8626) 2012-04-11 10:22
This is a nice POV of your favourite water-mill, with the wheel as a sort of hyphen between the old house and the water fall.
I love the water flow, just as if you could hear it falling an see it moving.
TFS and best regards.
ashres (1453) 2012-06-01 3:18
A nice shot of the traditional water mills with nice pov. The exposure is good and i liked the waters falling. Nice shot.
