The mushroom or heart for some in Southern Crete underneath the monastery of Preveli and at the shore of the river Kourtaliotis.

This is the first of the two shots that are worth sharing while we were in Crete.

This is a combination of two shots taken 1 hour apart. The first one was taken when the last warm colour has vanished from the horizon and the second was taken one hour later when all the stars appeared on the sky. I used high ISO and large aperture to be able to capture more than the eye could see.

I hope you like the result.

How on earth did I miss this one?
I absolutely love it...you did a beautiful job capturing this. It includes some of the things I love most...stars, ocean, rocks... rolled into one beautiful package. And I love that the rock is heart shaped.

Very nice mate, the cool tones along with the solitude rock give it such a surreal look and sense of isolation. I would have to agree with the other Phil that it would be nice to have no movement in the stars, but hey, looks great anyway.
