Photographer's Note

this photo was taken in Akadamar island at Van..the name is Ermenian church..The 10th-century Church of the Holy Cross stands alone on Akdamar Island amid the alkaline waters of Lake Van.
Besides the marvelous views of the church, the island, the lake and the mountains beyond, there are ruins of an Armenian monastery which once served the church.

The stone reliefs of Biblical scenes on the church exterior are the main reason for making the trip to Akdamar.
