Yasuharu Nagura : Photography『Meteora, Greece』(2019)

 The Meteora is a rock formation in central Greece hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries, second in importance only to Mount Athos.

 The six (of an original twenty-four) monasteries are built on immense natural pillars and hill-like rounded boulders that dominate the local area.

 It is located near the town of Kalambaka at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineos river and the Pindus Mountains.
