Description

Here, we continue my virtual journey back to last year's summer vacation on Crete/Greece (ha! when travelling still was fun ;-) with another "intermediary" image while still waiting for a new camera to arrive... (for the story see also Zenithal Summer Milky Way @35N)

Again, please take into consideration that this image had been taken with a "vacational" setup, i.e. the camera body and lens statically fixed to a tripod, thus no tracking or guiding, consequently allowing only limited exposure times.

Thank you for any comments/criticism.

As always, stay safe!
