A breathtaking shot of this extraordinary monastery. What a position it has! I like the way you have shown us the road leading to it in the background.The red roofs look great against the green. Marvellous exposure to give such great detail.

This monastery looks like it's clinging on for dear life. Superb the textures in the rockface and superb the sharpness and general overall quality.

I think one of the most dramatic captures of Meteora so far. Great angle of capture, very good frame and excellent colors

This places is really attractive as your photograph proves it. This brought closer sight is interesting and allows us to appreciate the architecture of the monastery. I like much the inclusion of the staircases downwards . Beautiful management of the lights and the natural colors. Beautiful and interesting work Philip, cheer.
With all my friendships and a good WE,

Very nice contrast difference between main subject and background.
Very good POV.
I think it's very difficult to clim upstairs.

This place is just awesome Philip
Didn't they use one of those monasteries for a James Bond movie once?
Must have been quite a treat to visit that.

A full view of the monastery this time. Spectacular locale for the monastery for sure. It would be quite a climb right to the top..we can see stairs on the left. A grand view and good work!

Stupendous view of this monastery perched on top of its rock! The ensemble overlooking the valley is very impressive! The red roofs enhance the whole lot. Greece is definitely a country of monasteries, churches and chapels. I experienced it in Crete.

Man O Man! What a location! Whoever thought of putting up a place to live up there, hats off to him.
Simply superb composition and details! I wish a Human element was also present which would have shown off the scale of this construction, especially if one was found climbing up the stairs on the left.
On a lighter note, just curious, "what do they do about their waste water management"?

I admire you for getting this superb shot of a monastery so high up on the rocks.The orange of the roofs stand out well against the green of the trees.

Excellent shot with right focus and sharpness. I can see the stairs on left bottom giving a scle to the distance one has to travel to reach here
