Mestia, August 2007

More from the walk above Svaneti's capital town. Cloudy weather only added to the drama of the landscape, though it also shrouded Mt Ushba after the initial glimpse. Never mind. The top shot shows Mestia so far below that even its watchtowers are indistinct. There used to be a large straight wooden cross at this spot, overlooking the town, but it either fell apart or was pulled down, and now only this simple one stands in its place.
