The World at Sunset

By: Anthony Ayiomamitis


Region: Europe

Site: Oropos - Greece

Date: April 2010

One of the specialties of TWAN Greek photographer Anthony Ayiomamitis is close-up telescopic views of the setting or rising Moon or the sun, as seen against interesting foreground and special landmarks. He makes extensive planning and calculation to locate best position and time to frame such unique single-exposure photos. Here the sun sets above the seaside resort of Oropos 40 kilometers northeast of Athens; a region with history from ancient Greece. As added by the photographer "While because of low solar activity there was no sunspot visible on the disc but the thin low-level clouds made for a very enriched coloration." Anthony Ayiomamitis/
