Photographer's Note

Mount Ararat, the highest peak in Turkey (5,137 m high) is seen from very far (also from Iran and from Armenia as it is on the border), a spectacular sight ; during the 3 days spent there, the clouds were gathering near the top during the early evening (but it never rained, complained the shepherds) and then cleared up as soon as it was dark (and very cold, due to the altitude).

This is a moody (and a bit noisy I'm afraid) photo ; tomorrow (if I don't change my mind), I'll post a "postcard-like scenery" with less atmosphere and more visibility. (In the end, I decided to post that one in a WS : for those interested in a clearer view of this mountain, with ‘fat-tailed sheep’ ) in the FG)

(Photos of people that I took in the same area here).
