    This is from a tiny tourist village called "Kokkari" (but probably the most well known!) in the Greek island of Samos, which I was fortunate to spend my summer vacations with the family. This place is so photogenic - everywhere you look there's a beautiful frame!

    It only has something like 100 permanent residents with just a few places open in winter, but at the summer months its full of life with locals that run the businesses (must be like 100 taverns, cafes, bars, souvenis shops etc!) and lots of tourists. Its a place for relaxing vacations not a place for intense night life like many Greek islands - as a family guy with 2 small kids, I prefer it that way :D

    I also had a chance to try my new Nisi ND1000 100x100 square filter system (which is so great!!!)

    I took a lot of photos but here are just some of my long exposure ones - hope you like them :)

    My early wake ups (5am), even in my summer vacations, were so worth it!!!

    If you have a chance to ever visit Kokkari, I highly recommend it ;)

    Oh man, that looks too idyllic, Nick. And you captured some great images there. #1 and #3 are my faves, I think. But I reserve the right to add more to that list. :D

    Very nice work Nick. Vacation is to do what you want so if 5am sunrises are what you want to do, just do it!

    From this view looks like it was all well worth it.

    And the Nisi filter looks pretty good. :thumbup:

    Wow! Well worth getting up at 5am. Even without a camera just to take in the setting. Wonderful job on all of them.
