A golden full moon warming up the summer evening on Leros.
The picture was taken from the beach of Alinda, camera resting on the outside ledge of a dressing cabin.

Yesterday was the biggest moon in two years, closest to earth, next time arounf 09/09 it still would be close and of course - big.
Nice taken with the glow on water, details are sharp and distinct.
A well done photo-technique, I used to do this myself many times(too lazy to carry a big tripod).
Have a nice evening,

Quite moody night capture this. The full moon is beautiful and was well placed at your composition. Maybe the longer exposure than 1 sec could help to get more details here? Anyway, it's a lovely post.

Hello dear Ourania,
There are been many captures of Leros published here but I think it's the first time, a nocturnal capture; and as a bonus a full moon wiyh amazing teflections.
Perfect light management.
TFS and best regards

Lep pogled nocu i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto u noci i trenutak sa mesecom.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the night and the moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated place in the night and the moment the moon.
Good work and composition, well captured moment.
Good evening and a beautiful night, all the best.

Good evening shot that is nicely composed. Thought at first, from the thumbnail, it was shot on the Gower coast in Wales. Bit warmer no doubt.

You have captured a fantastic atmosphere of late summer when the evenings are once again getting dark. The street-lights can't compete with the bright light of the full moon. I thought you might have needed more than one second to get such a good exposure in this kind of darkness. Maybe you tried many shots to find the perfect alternative.

probabilmente stavamo osservando la luna nello stesso momento, sono uscito sul terrazzo per ammirarla, era rossa, piena, fantastica, proprio come nella tua foto.
Una differenza c'è, io non avevo un panorama come questo....

Ciao Ourania,sono tutti a caccia della grande luna in queste serate,qui da me e' sempre nuvoloso e non si puo' fare null purtroppo,ma invece vedo che tu hai colto al meglio l'occasione creando una composizione magica,che atmosfera e che qualita',davvero magnifica!!! Buona giornata e complimenti,Luciano

Beautiful!... I wish all my photos taken carefully with tripod were that great technically and aesthetically.

I have to admit, I was unsure about the amount of negative, dark space with this one until I took a closer look, sat back and soaked up the soothing atmosphere under the moonlight. With so few details, or even light for that matter, it's allowed time and understanding to absorb the moment captured.
It's easy for me to visualize sitting nearby and simply listening to the soft tide as it rolls back and forth while admiring the moons reflection slowly swaying in conjunction. I use the phrase often I'm afraid, but it applies here quite well....a fine example of when less is more! :) The calm vibe has been expressed rather nicely in this moment. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

όμορφο βραδινό σκηνικό,με το φεγγάρι να λάμπει στον ουρανό και η αντανάκλασή του να κάνει λαμπυρίζουν τα σκοτεινά νερά της θάλασσας.Τα λιγοστά φώτα της περιοχής κάνουν το όλο σκηνικό αακόμα πιό ατμοσφαιρικό.

You know that the moon very close state to the earth the last week, 384.000km this is very close.
A very nice night picture with gold moon and the same reflections in the water.
Nice contrast picture too.
Very well done, TFS.

Another great capture of this lovely nocturnal scene. The light from the reflections gives immense charm to the frame and combined with the other lights sets up the perfect mood for this night shot. It is so inviting and it would be so pleasant to visit and spend a vacation at such a charming location.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

Un joli titre, très poétique qui convient si bien a cette belle réalisation, j'aime l'atmosphère qui en ressort, douceur et tranquillité
Passer une très belle soirée

Hola Ourania querida
Now you are quite conscious of the moon
Like the reflexes of it on the waters and the quiet ambiance
Good nocturnal work, kind regards
annjackman (21901) 2014-08-15 9:48
This is interesting and I like the large dark space with just the few lit areas. The golden reflection of the moon just adds a little more detail and my eyes are drawn to it. Unusual and effective work.
Kind Regards, Ann

Having read the critiques there is not more I can add.
PS. You never fail to produce a great shot.
