tourist nightshift clocking on

More of an eveningscape than a nightscape. Greek Islands. Has lost a bit of
sharpness due to being downsized to 40kb.

Thanks fellas.
Markus, 40 mins drive South of Athens. The ruins are on the mainland.
Taken looking West toward the island of Egina.

Maybe they're Greecian ruins , not Roman.

Lovely atmospheric photo Raymo, reminds me of a sunset that I remember from a time when I was travelling through the region.

Thanks Jeff. I have a sunset shot that I took the same evening, but am
saving it in case a monthly challenge winner should nominate sunsets.
I did notice the "Roman", but decided not to worry about it. While we are
doing some correcting, there is only one e in Grecian.
cheers raymo

Great Greek sunset. Maybe we can get back there one day. Well done to get the temple foreshortened in the shot with the coast. Warm and dry makes for a crisp sunset light as I recall.

I am not going to enter into the Greco-Roman wrestling .

They're not Roman Ruins, they're Greek cricket stumps....

This was a day/night match.
