From Göreme Open Air Museum in Cappadocia (=the land of beautiful horses), in central Anatolia. You can see the rock cut monastries by the monks who could freely devote their lives to the teaching during the early times of Christianity.

Bahadir, beautiful use of light! These shots of yours are always so interesting! I'm very curious of the 1st capture... on the left margin, the carving appears to be web or cage-like...any idea what that particular room may have used for??? Thanks as always for transporting me back to ancient era throughyour use of talented craftsmenship!

Ron

Ron, I was in fact lucky to have caught such a contrasting light condition which makes a painting Baroque!and thereforewhich also appeals to me greatly

In this open air museum there are many places where you are not allowed, or you wouldn't like to climb! But still, if you bring a torch with you thereis enough adventure to persue through the absolute dark tunnel systems between the rock cut rooms, some even meeting the either sides of the hills! Ah, one of the places I could not excess for some reason I cannot recall now:roll:was thegrid patternrock, cut by our brother monks!

Donna, thank you for your eloquent words!

I am doubly happy to shareeverypixel of beauty I couldsqueeze on the sensor of my camera, with the kindred spirits here

I fancy I can see the monk's dark robes exiting stage right in the second shot. Earth and rocks hold those stories, and we can share them a little in this great photos. Thanks Bahadir!

Wow Bahadir! That is one awesome place

You know the problem with this forum is it makes you want to explore far too many places :-)

Great shot, John.
