♫♫ Expedition to Mount Kazbek (5033m) ♫♫

Mount Kazbek is associated in Georgian folklore with Amirani, the Georgian version of Prometheus, who was chained on the mountain in punishment for having stolen fire from the gods and having given it to mortals. The location of his imprisonment later became the site of an Orthodox hermitage located in a cave called "Betlemi" (Bethlehem) at around the 4,000-meter level. According to legends, this cave housed many sacred relics, including Abraham's tent and the manger of the infant Jesus

I envy how much you travel, my friend, but not as much as my appreciation of your talent.. the 'man to go to' for soothing landscape photography; they are beautifully crafted, yet they remain realistic, without any dramatic heavy handed edits that we see only too often on social media.

Like a message from life: You're here to do something 
no one else can. Each is an exceptional spirit that must
not bear the loss of common comparison blue heart
