Meteors over Ancient Mantinia

Ancient Mantinia, Greece

From the photographer: "The temple of Sant Fotini in Ancient Mantinea has been described as having architectural originality for its peculiar structure. Its architecture is a mosaic of several patterns, such as Ancient Greek, Byzantine, and Greek traditional. It was built in 1972. Located in the beautiful grounds of the plain of Ancient Mantinea, this structure looks like a fairytale under the starry sky. The two meteors across the region of the Great Bear (constellation Ursa Major) give their own touch to this single exposure, completing the serene scene."
