The moon rising behind the promontory of Ayia Marina. This place is called Brouzi, probably from the Turkish and Arabic word burc, meaning "tower" or "fortress". The ruins of a centuries old fortress lie behind the beacon.
My vantage point was three inlets away, at Alinda.
Thank you for visiting

This is probably one of the nicest views on Leros and this time you have shrouded it in a magic light. The perfect full moon has created a marvellous sky of pink and blue, bautifully reflected i the sea. The light was still strong enough to allow the details of the hill and ämong the buildings to be seen in perfect sharpness and clarity.
This is a superb photo which will attract a lot of viewers, no doubt.

Lovely colours in the sky and the sea with the full moon being the star of this picture. The cliff with the rocks and the houses at the bottom displayed with excellent clarity and detail, and it makes a perfect backdrop for the sea with the beautiful pink shades reflected in its waters. You managed the light really well to give us this lovely view.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

Il me dit des mots d'amour.....
Come questa foto, parla di romanticismo e amore cara Ourania, sei riuscita ad esprimerlo nel migliore dei modi, forse manca solo una coppia a decretarne l'apoteosi.

Hello dear Ourania,
Another nice capture from Leros with this fullmoon as bonus of the scenery.
TFS and best regards

An impressive moon and a nicely composed picture with soft and subdued colours. A very peaceful and pleasant mood here.
williewhistler (14611) 2014-04-27 13:06
the warm pink and blue tones of evening are a perfect setting for the full moon which is well placed in an imaginative upright format.
It appears to be the most tranquil and pleasant of holiday settings.
Warm regards Les.

I remember the song "La vie en rose" Of Edith Piaf, a little bit nostalgia.
Excellent technical picture with the sea, mountain and the moon.
Lovely composition, nice depth and perspective.
Very well seen, TFS.
Have a nice day,

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical de la côte incluant cette très belle lune dans un ciel rosâtre.L'ensemble est d'une très belle netteté même dans les zones d'ombre.
amaryllis (35075) 2014-04-28 6:17
merci de cette phto qui, comme tu le dis nous permet de voir ces tons rosé et sur la mer et dans le ciel, des couleurs que l'on apprécie
ikeharel (58231) 2014-04-28 7:03
Your moon is the same as our's... Nice dusk scenery, puple/pink tone on water is most charming, Ourania.
On every day and diff. hour there are diff. tones and texture over this place, same place we know already from your photo. Yet, each rendered a fine alternative sight.
adramad (38573) 2014-04-28 9:19
A delicious composition, full of romance, with that big moon dominating diagonal promontory down to the sea, a quiet place to relax, wonderful place the pink color of the sky, which also ink the sea, a very appropriate title for a wonderful image .
Very well balanced lighting and very good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Wish you a very nice week.
cornejo (32202) 2014-04-28 9:21

What a view. The moon is the star of the show here for me, although that's not to say the landscape is not really impressive too. The moon is so large, and its so rare to see it hanging in this mauve sky. Love that you captured the color of the sky in the water too, giving a fine tint to the whole image.
Beautiful result, and perfect composition of the moon. Thanks as always for sharing.
nikkitta (14858) 2014-04-28 15:06
Hola Ourania querida
Merci, like the french song of the title
A very romantic capture with the rising moon as the protagonist
But also the color at sky and waters is nice and well managed, as well as the vertical format
Well done, wish you a great week ahead
elenimavrandoni (14259) 2014-04-28 20:19
Ουρανία, τι ομορφος και ρομαντικός τίτλος για να συνοδέψεις τήν μοναδική σου φωτογραφία!!
ενα τραγουδι που εγραψε ιστορία και μια εικόνα ου μαγεύεει με τα παστέλ χρώματα της και τήν αδιαφιλονίκητη γοητεία της στιγμής!!
mjw364 (7512) 2014-04-29 5:45
A great title and one of my favourite songs too! You have captured the emerging pink moment well here in this very nicely balanced composition.
abmdsudi (43718) 2014-04-29 7:43
A lovely romantic image, beautiful serene captured at the magical hour for light and colours. Just love the way the full moon has highlighted the whole scene superbly and really adds to the atmosphere. That lovely pinkish light makes this shot. Well done, Tfs
Cricri (107306) 2014-04-29 8:32
J'aime le titre et l'image tout va bien ensemble, j'aime les couleurs pastel avec en plus la lune, c'est très joli, très poétique
jemaflor (85510) 2014-04-29 11:01
beautiful capture, pleasant colors, perfect and original with the moon, tfs.

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
καταπληκτική σύνθεση,άψογο καδράρισμα,υπέροχες οι ροζ αποχρώσεις στον ουρανό!
eldancer1 (28513) 2014-04-30 7:25
Beautiful scene especially with the rising moon over the mountain. Even the water is making the scene very peaceful and calm, romantic also. I like your pov and love the pinkish color of the sky. When shooting the moon (see some of my post with the moon) I like to see some definition of the surface of the moon so I normally shoot at least 1/120 or 1/160 sec. and depending on how much light I use up to ISO of 400 and adjust the lens opening accordingly. TFS.
Gigidusud (16299) 2014-05-01 11:01
Comme le titre est en Français ce soir j'écris en Français :)Superbe heure rose sur Leros avec une jolie pleine lune. Très bon choix du format et du titre. J'aime beaucoup!
jcpix (13688) 2014-05-02 20:14
How dare you steal a title that I plan on using for a future post! lol Oh well, never hurts to have more than one application, right? :)This image is certainly worthy of the title, and I'm sure Edith Piaf would be quite pleased to be associated with the result.
There is an undoubtedly romantic mood which you've captured here...the big moon hovering gently over the bay, and that soft pink hue is a match made in heaven. An exquisite display of natures little beauties, coming together in one frame. Executed with careful regard for the delightful atmosphere being projected. A great way to end the work week, seeing such a soothing picture. :) Have a wonderful weekend. All the best.
mcmtanyel (14123) 2014-05-16 19:17
Oh yes, I remember this moon. For some reason, the moon is the the same where I live, I think it is too cloudy over here. Thanks for this lovely reminder.
