Mount Lycabettus

DSC1576 [Mount Lycabettus]


Mount Lycabettus stands in the center of Athens at a height of 300 m above sea level. At the top one can see a little chapel dedicated to St. George, can dine in a restaurant and can enjoy not only a nice view of the Acropolis but also a unique view of the city to any direction. Hopefully, they will pretend to ignore the undoubtedly undesirable antennas that “have crept into the area”.

In the photo above one can see the north part of the mountain as seen through the photographic lens from a distance of nearly 4km.

Autumn is here!

802_1692 [lightning]


Capturing a lightning has always been at the back of my mind as a must-try at least once but I had never dared test my luck until two days ago when the magnitude and frequency of lightning almost all over the area provided the opportunity for a step forward. Quickly set up my camera on the balcony of my apartment and took about 30 pitch-dark, useless, photos before the storm faded away plus one more photo. The one above I am happily sharing with you. Eventually… "audaces fortuna iuvat"!!!

Aphrodite

8011997 [Aphrodite]

A statue of Aphrodite made of Parian marble and found in Southern Italy. It formerly belonged to the collection of Lord Hope. The neck, head and right arm were restored by the famous Italian sculptor A. Canova (1757-1822). This version of Aphrodite was made in the 2nd c. AD with Syracuse Aphrodite being the original which goes back to the 4th C. BC.
