When this week’s challenge came up I realised that I don’t really do a lot of outdoor, night-time photography unless it involves the moon! I think I will try to use the coming months to add some interesting night scenes to my portfolio. With London only a short train ride away it’s almost unbelievable that I haven’t photographed the city at night before!
The photos I’m sharing with you today are all from the Greek Island, Kos. Kos Town is full of wonderful structures that allude to the history of Turkish rule as well as the fortifications from the Knights of St John. I love the strong brickwork alongside the intricate detailing of the minaret on the Muslim Shrine Ntefterntar, which is lit so beautifully at night and complimented by the crescent moon.
All my images today have been edited using Lightroom and Nik Software to add some extra atmosphere. My last image is of Kastri Island in The Gulf of Kefalos, created using four stacked exposures and a bit of light leakage. This is the beautiful island where Simon and I will be getting married next year and if you look closely you can see the lit chapel of Agios Nikolaos, in front of which our ceremony will take place. Perfection!
