[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear Friends,

Just came home from our vacation from Greece (with more than 2 GB of photos...). We spent most of our time in Paralia, a resting (?) town near Katerini (the full name of the town is 'Paralia Katerinis', because the word "paralia" means "seaside" in English, if I'm not wrong, but everyone - and even maps - knows and mentions it simply as Paralia). It's very popular among Hungarian, Serbian and Romanian people, although I don't really understand why.

For amateur photographers Paralia doesn't offer too much. Simple and absolutely non-characteristic sandy seaside, a town full of apartments to rent and heavily overcrowded with small stores, which are opened to late night (as it's usual everywhere in Greece). The only building worth mentioning there is an orthodox church. So we (with my older son) were only able to practise our hobby at night (except for the usual family shots) - at least we had a good lesson of nocturnal photography. Fortunately we had the possibility to visit the Meteoras and also Mt. Olympus.

Shot: on the "unique" seaside, around 9 o'clock (GMT +2). Manual exposure. PP: little white balance correction.

Thx for commenting, I wish You all the best!

Szia Laci,
Szép felvétel a holdról, jó a kompozívió, hogy a tenger hullámai is viszonylag tisztán látszódnak a sötétben. Hangulatos este benyomását keltő kép, nagyszerű munka!
Jó hétvégét, üdv:

Szia Laci!
Mint a TE-ön írtam, ez a kép jobban tetszik, mivel kivehető, hogy hullámok nyaldossák a partokat. Tetszik az ötlet, hogy a természetes megvilágítást hívtad segítségül! Tökéletes az expozíció is!

Hi Laszlo,
Beautiful composition,good light.
Best regards,

Very mysterious. I could not tell that those were waves until you told me it was a seaside. Nice composition and emotion. TFS. Karin
