Photographer's Note

It was about time to make a short break to my "Mykonos series", and it was about time to upload a picture from Athens, after 216 posts.

Yesterday I had a "tip" that the full moon would rise around 21:15 somewhere between the Acropolis and the Lycabettus hill. So I took my camera and my tripod and I searched for a good POV, which I found on the Filopappou hill, opposite of the Acropolis. The "tip" wasn't absolutely correct, because the moon did rise around that hour, but much more to the right from where I expected it would. Still, I thought that I should take the photo after that long walk I had done to find the place.

So, here you see, on the lower left part of the photo Odeon of Herodes Atticus, right above the Propylaea, moving to the right the Parthenon (of course) and at the right end the hill of Lycabbetus on the background, one more of the trademarks of Athens.
