Twilight from Mount Penteli, Greece
March 15, 2021
Photographer: Konstantinos Christodoulopoulos
Summary Author: Konstantinos Christodoulopoulos; Jim Foster
Shown above is the captivating twilight sky I observed several
weeks ago from Mount Penteli in the Attica region of Greece.
Its summit, known as Pyrgari, has an elevation of 3,638 ft (1,109 m).
These rich, marigold colors occurred during the transition from
civil to nautical twilight. When the Sun’s below the horizon, the
indigo and blue colors are scattered from view by the increased
path-length of sunlight, but the longer wavelength colors (yellows,
oranges and reds) remain until nightfall. Photo taken on December 25,
Photo Details: Canon EF camera; 24 mm; f/3.5; USM lens; 2-second
exposure; ISO 200; Digipod A 2541P Tripod; Manfrotto 496 RC2 Ball Head.
