The Calmness of the Island and the Space Traveller
Antiparos island, Aegean Sea, Greece July 12th, Dawn

Description: Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise continues to brighten the early morning sky and forces us to get up early once again in order to capture its beauty.

Story: Living on such a small island it was a dream that came true for me three years ago.
The weather conditions might be hard many times during the year and life can become difficult, but as an astrophotographer I have the opportunity to live in a small town with minimal levels of light pollution.
This has given me the ability to observe and photograph many celestial objects in the beautiful night sky like Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise.
