Photographer's Note

Same note as my other Meteoara picture... Meteora is a formation of sandstone pillars in central Greece, upon which various Greek Orthodox monasteries have been built. I believe the monastery here is Agiou Nikolaou - but I could be wrong about that as it's been a couple of years now since I visited. At any rate, construction began in the 14th century, and at one point there were as many as 20 monasteries sitting atop the various pillars. Six of which still remain.
