The photo above is looking back towards the cliff face into which the structures called the “Royal Tombs” are built. It was taken from something called “Temple of the Winged Lion,” which I didn’t really find all that photogenic despite its promising name, so you’ll only see it in one photo later. Below, we’re looing from the same vantage towards the Great Temple. Of that, I will show you more photos later, because it was the last major structure that I really explored on my out, after having climbed up to & back down from the structure called “The Monastery.” More on all that in post yet to come. 🙂

I might be wrong about the name of that photo, but I think I remember where I took it. It’s the last truly lovely nearly-summer-type of photo that I’ve not yet posted, from various walk and bike explorations of my new neighborhood. Although there are a few still unposted that have a bit of green in them, I’m mentally bidding the sun and green adieu with this shot…which means you’ll start seeing (even more) autumn and winter in the Amsterdam series, even as Petra will continue reminding us the sun still shines elsewhere. There’s a chance of snow tonight, in fact. But I’m still getting out plenty, since covid lockdowns mean near-constant work from home again. Hope you’re getting out also.
