For Your Eyes Only

Website | Twitter | Facebook

 

Metéora (Greek: Μετέωρα) – is a sacred place for Greek Orthodox. Monastery was built on the top of pinnacles by hermit monks to escape from being victim of war. There were many of these monasteries but only 6 left. Others had been destroyed during the war.

 

The Holy Monastery of Rousanou (in picture) was built in 1560. The lighting wasn’t good that day as it was cloudy and hazy. I took 3 exposures for HDR and the result turned out great with the haze producing gradient and beautiful shadows.

 

A scene in James Bond – For Your Eyes Only, was filmed in one of the monasteries.

 

Happy Monday blues!

  

Treat yourself with LARGE on BLACK (Recommended!!)
