Photographer's Note

The picture is taken in Orheiul Vechi (Old Orhey) - a museum complex not far from Chisinau.

Some info on this place from http://orhei.dnt.md
------------------------------------------------
The museum complex Old Orhei is a system of historical monuments and natural landscapes situated on meander promontories (headlands), formed by the sinusoidal bed of the Raut river, between the Trebujeni and Butuceni villages. Parts of the Old Orhei complex are two huge promontories (Pestere and Butuceni), joined by other three adjacent promontories (Potarca, Selitra and Scoc) placed in a range from North to South.
The Orheiul Vechi Monastery complex, carved into a massive limestone cliff in a wild, rocky and remote spot, draws visitors from around the globe. The Cave Monastery, inside a cliff overlooking the Răut River, was dug by Orthodox monks in the 13th century, remained inhabited until the 18th century, and was reinhabited by a handful of monks in 1996.
