Entry Description

The photo was taken a cloudy night from the balcony of the house where I grew up (Davleia, Central Greece). As a child, I was enjoying of watching science fiction movies. When I was trying to sleep at night, I was looking out of the window these strange white strips of light behind the hill and I imagined missile launches, or flying discs landing there. Later, I visited this area and I realized that these lights illuminate a monument dedicated to people who killed in the 2nd World War. It's a long exposure shot, so the white V looks bright. Also, lights from the nearby city (Chaironeia) gave orange shade to the clouds. The result is very close to the scene that I was imagining as a child.
