Last evening's full moon rising from behind the hill of the Castle. The vantage point is on the coast of Alinda, where a step from the side of the road gets you into the sea. The town below the Castle is Ayia Marina and neighbouring settlements.
Thank you for visiting

THe colors in the sky here are just beautiful, and what a bonus to have this bright big moon shining down and creating this streak of silver across the water. The combination of the mighty castle and the silver moon with this foreground makes a fantastic result.
Thanks as always

The shining moon is drawing first attention, and beautifully lit on far horizon. Yet, I look around on many other elements, especially the moving boat on right, and the golden dusk-light which also mirror on water surface.
Charming bay view.

Excellent colors and light.
Photo has climate.
Have a nice evening

The moon is now supposed to be at its closest distance from earth, making the present full moon stronger than usual. Maybe that helped you to achieve this fabulous composition. It is not just that the blue and violet tones are enchanting, the small boats are also perfectly placed. The one approaching the harbour is followed by a fine network of small waves. You were also lucky to have a nicely placed diagonal jetty filling the lower left part of the view.

Beautiful photo, good light capture with moon and also on all your photo, good effect with the pier to give depth, good place in the corner and with diagonal result.

It's a beautiful night shot and the awesome full moon rising over a very serene atmosphere. The exposure has come out very well that you have achieved visibility of detail in both the moon and the foreground interest, sharp in focus, wonderful tones and superb composition. Delightful capture, tfs

Hi neighbors ...
Beautiful image of the Moon have stayed small. Despite this, the Moon stood mysterious behind the sea....
PiotrF (9670) 2014-07-13 15:17
amazing scene, moon and colors in the sky are just beautiful. Nice work, nice captured moment.
Perfect exposure, fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness. Nice shot !

Hi Ourania, Wonderful composition along with great POV. The different sizes of the boats and the motion of the boats give life to the calm sea. The full moon was at the perfect place to finish this marvelous night scenery.
Great light and the pinkish purple tones brings nice harmony to the composition. Thank for sharing

We just had a phase of the "super moon" over the last few days...unfortunately there was a lot of cloud cover here in Phoenix, so I didn't really get a good look at its increased size. Although smaller in comparison given this perspective, and geographic location of course, the moon exudes the same amount of tranquility and romantic appeal in this setting. What really does it for me though are the soft shades of blue and pink, it sends the entire scene into a soothing and peaceful mood. I can virtually hear a few birds just out of frame, some people chatting nearby and the faint splashes of the water as I sit and absorb this view. It'd be much better though if I were actually out on the end of that dock....but my imagination will have to suffice. :) Simply beautiful! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

It is the wonderful pinkish light of evening which makes this one so special - as well, of course, as the rising full Moon which you have managed to have caught in just the right place in your fine composition.
The jetty on the left "leads" us into the image perfectly, the castle is perfectly placed and the boats - one cruising directly towards us - add foreground interest on the glassy water.
Technically excellent too.
Sergiom (61132) 2014-07-14 5:41
J'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère qui se dégage de cette composition.Le soleil se couche et la lune se lève pour recouvrir la baie et ses bateaux d'un voile doux.
mirosu (14512) 2014-07-14 7:22
These days the moon is very close to the earth. You are lucky to get such excellent weather conditions for this beautiful photo. I was waiting three nights, but always found cloudy sky. Must wait for next opportunity on 11 August.
Excellent arrangement with the boats on calm water and the small hill with the full moon in background. Very relaxing scene.
Very well done.
saxo042 (37578) 2014-07-14 9:03
The soft and subdued colours of the late evening provide a very pleasant harmony here. The boats and the super moon are providing a lot of interest too.

πολύ όμορφη παρουσίαση του δειλινού με το γεμάτο φεγγαρι να ξεπροβάλλει δειλά επάνω από τον λόφο.
Οι μωβ αντανακλάσεις στην επιφάνεια της θάλασσας με τις λίγες βάρκες να λικνίζονται στα ήρεμα νερά του λιμανιού.
Εξαιρετική παρουσίαση όπως η χρωματική-ρομαντική απόδοση.
photographer_sg (4402) 2014-07-15 10:27
This is superbly done! The delicate colours with subtle variations provide the perfect atmosphere of tranquility. I can almost hear one of Chopin's Nocturns playing in the background. An exquisite picture with superb photo qualities.
My compliments and thanks for sharing this great picture.
Have a nice evening.

Hi dear Ourania, how are you recently?
So wonderful, marvelous and splendidily soft / calm color touch - light at all! Slight delicate color gradation is so well presented in the perfect framework as usual.
All the best and have a good day! Takero from hot Tokyo

Ciao Ourania,che esposizione perfetta! Non è mai facile mostrare la luna cosi' piccola senza bruciarla e senza perdere i dettagli del paesaggio,una grande prova da maestra,atmosfera magnifica e grande scenario di sfondo!! Buona serata,Luciano
williewhistler (14611) 2014-07-16 3:34
you have portrayed a calm and peaceful setting perfectly with all of the key elements in the right place under a beautiful evening light.

Merveilleuse composition prise a heure rose, c'est plein de douceur et de calme, le plus avec la prise la pleine lune et les reflets
Gigidusud (16299) 2014-07-17 7:52
Ciao cara Ourania,
Bellissima composizione nel porticiolo di Leros. Spendida la luce rosa del fine pomeriggio e fantastici riflessi nell'acqua. Mi piace la luna sotto la collina. Complimenti!
Un caro saluto.

Hola Ourania querida
Opsssss a Super Moon capture, where I like the very special colors, mix of soft pink and blue creating an unique , quiet, romantic ambiance with the well positioned wooden pier
During a super full moon, the moon may appear bigger and brighter, it was the last of the year, next will be
Monday, September 28, 2015, keep it in mind to try and to take another shot of the same place, just an idea
A super full moon occurs when the moon’s closest approach to the Earth (lunar perigee) coincides with the phase of full moon
I love full moon and lost all of this special year
Well done, regards
Kielia (23703) 2014-07-19 3:56
a fantastic and very well composed impression of this already well known place under a fascinating sky. The light and the pastel colors are wonderful and the photographer’s perspective is excellent. The image almost looks like a painting!
npecanhuk (66324) 2014-08-01 13:54
Lovely and beautiful picture of such attractive details, inclusing that rising moon!
Exposure, soft colors and composition are true highlights here!
TFS - congrats,
mcmtanyel (14123) 2014-08-01 22:48
Oh, yes, yes, yes! This is a magical time, when the moon rises over the water during the pink hour of the evening. A lovely rendition, TFS!
