Light and Glory

30. October 2020

Reminding capture from July’s Crete island. The photograph was made at the Elafonissi beach, the most south-west part of Crete. The beach is characteristic due to the clear turquoise water and soft white and colored sand. For astrophotographers and observers, this place is also a dark sky paradise. But even this place is much polluted by the lights from restaurants, and local houses. And the composition should represent the contrast between polluted and dark sky. While above the sunshades the objects in the sky disappear, on the right side we can see dark sky gems. Well, literally. Few meters from the beach we can find Bortle 1 sky – the natural night sky.  Beautiful Milky Way and its structures, nebulas, and colorful airglow above the sea level. And of course, the comet Neowise on the left.
