disc-shaped object visible in photograph

It was a sunny Wednesday afternoon on the island of Samos, Greece. We (myself, a friend, and his son) were at a beach just outside the town of Kokkari (37 degrees 46 minutes latitude, 26 degrees, 54 seconds longitude). The bay opens out to the northeast. My friend had a digital camera and was shooting photographs of his son playing in the water. None of us saw anything unusual at that time.

When my friend looked at his pictures at home, however, he found a very strange sight: a distinct, silver, disc-shaped object in the air between the beach where we had been and another peninsula of the island in the distance. The disc was symmetrical and tilted at a slight angle. It was deepest at the mid-point, tapering at the edges. In a photograph taken a minute later, the disc is no longer there.
