Rotating Sky and Abandoned Church

By: Anthony Ayiomamitis


Region: Europe

Site: Cape Sounion - Greece

Date: July 2014

A time-exposure image shows the rotating sky (star trails) around the north celestial pole, marked by Polaris. From the photographer: "The impressive but abandoned Church of Saint Ioannis Prodromou was built in 1919 near the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion. The church was never granted a permit for its operation following the objections of the Department of Antiquities (Greece) due to the fact that its construction included materials taken from the nearby archaeological grounds at Sounion."
