Photographer's Note

This buiilding is called the "Swift's Nest" - built by some nobleman as a romantic getaway before the revolution. This small fariry tale type castle was built on a cliff overlooking the Black Sea, just west of Yalta. Take a close look at the way the building is actually hanging out over the edge of the cliff. It wasn't built that way, an earthquake after it was built took away some of the rock from the cliff, but still left the building standing. Now it's one of the most popular tourist spots in the Crimea. You have to enjoy it while it lasts, because it certainly will disappear into the sea one day. I would have liked to get that overhang against the sky so you can really see it well, however, that would have required a very big step down!
