A starry night above the monastery of Geghard, a World Heritage Site in Armenia. The church is being partially made like a hidden temple in a cave, carved out of the adjacent mountain, surrounded by magnificent towering cliffs. The monastery complex was founded in the 4th century at the site of a sacred spring inside a cave. Geghard means “the Monastery of the Spear”.

    Nice one, Oshin.
    After all the color shots, it’s nice for a change to
    see a B&W! All the color can become a bit overwhelming.
    Best regards and clear skies,
    P.S. It’s a shame, but I haven’t made a serious astrophoto
    effort since I got my point-shoot digital camera…except on my
    web site is a half-decent Sunrise on Copernicus shot handheld at scope with the digital.
