Photographer's Note

Following a strenuous ascent, the entrance to Abuna Yemata Guh is accessed by climbing a vertical rock wall depending entirely on hand grips and foot holds then a walk over a 50 cm wide ledge with a 300 metre (980 ft) sheer drop.

It is in a cave carved from the cliff face. The ceiling is decorated by 5th century religious paintings.

The priest will show you the illustrated bible written on goats' skin which belongs to the church.

f/4.0, ISO 1600, 55mm, 1/25s
