Selene Rising Over the Temple of Athena Nike (427-424 BC)


  The Temple of Athena Nike was built between 427 and 424 BC using pentelic white marble. It lies to the immediate right of the Propylaea as one is about to enter the Acropolis and which, of course, is dominated by the Parthenon. The Temple of Athena Nike is adorned with ionic marble columns with four such columns gracing both the front and rear facade.
  
  The image above was taken from a distance of approximately 600 meters to the northwest of the Acropolis in an effort to match as closely as possible the rising perigee full moon and the temple itself. Particular attention is warranted to the foreground shadows of summer romantics watching the perigee full moon rise.  — Anthony Ayiomamitis
