Photographer's Note

Mt Kazbek (5047m.), and the 14th century Gergeti Trinity Church below, taken after sunset from a guesthouse in Kazbegi. The church is at 2170m. altitude, the guesthouse is at approximately 1800m. The sun had set behind the mountain, so the sky came out brighter than I would have preferred. Before this photo was taken I, the landlady, her daughter, her daughters fiancee, and a turkish speaking georgian taxi driver consumed at least several gallons of Kazbegi brand beer, one bottle of vodka, two bottles of georgian wine, 2 bags of pistachios, fried chicken, local salad and beet soup, they sure know how to host a dinner party. I was in no condition to wait for the sky to get darker. I will add the morning after photos (of Kazbegi, not the hangovers) to workshop.

Edit : 70mm focal length used.
