Photographer's Note

The plateau on the top of these rocky hills is called the Amba. The Amba from where this view can be seen houses a 6th Century Ethiopian Orthodox monastery called Debra Damo. It is accessible only by climbing a 15m sheer rock cliff. The main church is built with many features from the pre-christian Axumite style, although incorporating carved wood components in similar style to Romanesque churches in the middle east.
