A very nice one with that heavy sky. I like the colors and the monastery roofs. The title was intriguing also.
Well done.

Wonderful buildings, I'm a big fan of old churches, cathedrals, monasteries. Having permanents (or semi-permanent) residents like monks is key to keep them alive and well maintained.

I like the looks of some of the old Eastern Orthodox churches. They are very colorful and have this spirit of the old Byzantine empire in them

It was a typo and it was obvious… I sure hope that those churches survive for a long time.
