St. Elias Church. Του Προφήτη Ηλία αύριο.

Our Church , on July 20th (tomorrow), celebrates the memory of Prophet Elias. The Churches dedicated to the prophet, are usually built high up on the mountains, as he was raised to heaven in a burning chariot, from a mountain top, according to the Old Testament. On the mountain over Glyfada, where I live, there is a little church. People climb up the path and visit the church and stay overnight for the ceremony tomorrow morning. I took a few photographs of the little church from my balcony, during the day and tonight after dark, when the path to the church is lighted.
Αύριο, 20 Ιουλίου είναι η γιορτή το Αη-Λιά. Οι εκκλησίες του προφήτη, είναι συνήθως κτισμένες ψηλά σε βουνοκορφές, όπως και το εκκλησάκι στον Υμηττό, πάνω από την Γλυφάδα. Τράβηξα μερικές φωτογραφίες κατά την διάρκεια της ημέρας και απόψε αφού νύχτωσε, που το μονοπάτι που οδηγεί στην εκκλησία είναι φωτισμένο για να διευκολύνει τους προσκυνητές.

(for all night shots you see here, I was using a tripod with my camera. There was a strong wind blowing at the time and although i was trying to hold the camera steady, it was still vibrating. Look at the effect of the camera movement. The stars look like birds).
