Photographer's Note

ZaretÍ Karababa

ZaretÍ Karababa (in Halfeti province) is known as a historical grave on a hill with three old oaks. One of them has got a hole in its boal: at sunset and sunrise the sun shines through it.

Nobody knows the true story about ZaretÍ Karababa, but Halfeti`s people tell that once upon a time there was an important man (the civilians call him "Karababa", the Blak Father) who had high prestige. When he died they built him a grave on a lonely hill, with oaks guardians.

This is the reason why the Halfeti people do visit his grave and pray. Nobody knows how many years the grave and the oaks exist, but Karababa`s grave has been emptied by unknown persons.

I hope you like the photo. I took the shot during the sunset.
