Vank at night

Lake Sevan, Armenia

I have forgotten the actual name of this vank (church).
One of the delights of Lake Sevan s how the fog drifts down from the mountains
and across the lake constantly. It creates some beautiful effects.
I took this image in the complete dark with only minimal light from the
town and occassional passing car.

the name of the monastery complex this church belonges to is sevanavank, this one is Astvatsatsin (holy mother of god). I've been there as well (thanks to you, anthony), but this looks ways better than real life!
David was laughting about you taking pictures all the time but obviously it was worth the effort -amazing!
best regards from vienna

Thanks for the advise. I have never used 3200ISO before and didnt realise the possibilities of it. I have a lot of learning to do but it should be fun.
