Gergety Trinity Church built in XIII-XIV century is the only cupola church in the Khevi region. Perched on the top of the Tsminda Sameba (Holly Trinity) hill at 2170 meters above sea level, it is something of a symbol of Georgia. The severe beauty of glaciers and austerity of local people are reflected in the construction of such a huge church on such a height. The trek up to the Gergety Trinity church starts at the village Gergety and passes through lush forests and alpine fields.

świetne, esencja tamtych stron. Dobry pomysł z tym ukazaniem kościółka na tle skalnej ściany, bez kawałeczka nieba - wzmacnia się w ten sposób poczucie ogromu.

Hello Tytus. A warm welcome to TE. Excellent first post. A very well balanced composition and an interesting subject. Good level of detail and management of exposure, even though it seems slightly bright to me (perhaps my screen). Enjoy the community.

Welcome to TE
This really looks like a painting thanks to the sharp details of the church on the hill and the lesser ones on the BG. Beautiful light.

Hi Tytus, this is really beautiful! I like how the foreground is all browns and yellows while the background is more blues and purples. And all the little details of the landscape are just fascinating. Thanks for sharing!
