I had the pleasure to be at the Island of the Deers (Elafonisos) for a video shooting on July. Elafonissos is a very small island just 19 square km on the Southern Eastern Tip of Peloponesse. The distance from the mainland is a mere 570 meters of crystal clear water on top of thin white sand. It's a magical place.

Because of its location, Elafonisos is also one of the best places in Greece to capture the Milky Way. The light pollution is extremely low and the night sky is simply amazing.

On July 30, 2011 the gorgeous Milly Way was visible even with naked eye. I took my gear and headed down to Simos beach to capture it. Settings was 30sec exposures, 3200 - 6400 iso, f/2.8 at 17mm. Gear: Canon 7D, Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM, Sachtler CineDSLR.
