This is star trail photo of the Simonopetra monastery. The monastery was founded during the 13th century. It is built on top of a single massive rock and many describe it as the boldest construction among all monasteries of Athos Mount. The night sky above Athos Mount is truly exceptional essentially free of any source of light pollution.
