FULL MOON NIGHT

By dimalexa
Series: SUN & MOON - In the days around the summer full moon I feel something and swirl around the Acropolis, there are certainly magical links with the sacred rock and the moon. On the night of the Monday 17/06/2019 full moon from the Areopagus hill.
Greece, Athens, Acropolis. - 17/06/2019
(Another full moon capture from the same point, almost two years ago).

small note: My daughter, who lives in the Narragansett area of Rhode Island, USA, tells me this very same moon is called the "Strawberry Moon". by the native Narragansett tribe of the Algonquain Indians---- we looked for it, but the sky was dense with clouds!

You image is spectacular in that great light!

A fine capture, Dimitris - it's interesting to compare this image with the one in the link.

I think that the "Strawberry Moon" must be more reddish, about like the "blooded moon", that was during this winter (unfortunatelly the weather was fickle, I didn't photographe it). This moon was enough white, the previous day I captured it more "strawberry" from another point, opposite of Acropolis, from where I had a view from the first moment of the moon rise. Really, it was a "strawberry moon", it was at 20:38, in contrast with this photo, which is taken one & half hour later, because earlier it was not seen from this point of view.
Thank you Jenn for your comment!

The basic difference between the two photos (except the eclipse, of course) is the position of the moon, because of the month's difference. This one is more to the right, towards the south direction.
Thank you very much Richard for your comment.

Your Acropolis outshines even a Strawberry Moon!
