One of the unexpected pleasures of my trip to Ethiopia were its ancient rock-hewn churches in the Tigray Region, some which have been around since the 4th century A.D. Many of the churches rest atop steep cliffs, and access can be challenging. One church I visited was surrounded by sheer 700-foot cliffs, and I had to do some steep rock scrambling and a little bit of rock climbing with rope and harness to get to it. The priest for the church was very friendly, posing for me outside a small sandstone cave near the entrance to the tiny church carved into the rock. I positioned him just outside the cave, with the setting sun behind his head to add some mystery to the photo. Canon 5DIV, Canon 11-24mm f/4 lens, ISO 100, f/8, 1/60 second.
