Photographer's Note

Akhtala (Armenian: Ախթալայի վանք) is a 10th-century Armenian Apostolic monastery located in the Debed valley in northern Armenia. We visited it on our way from Tbilisi (Georgia) to Yerevan, along with several other atmospheric sites in this part of the country.

Note for film fans: this monastry was used as a location in Sergej Paradjanov's The Colour of Pomegranates, along with the monastries of Sanahin and Haghpat. They are all in this area and can be visited.
