Sacred Glow

An Ethiopian Orthodox priest standing in front of one of the UNESCO world heritage rock-hewn churches in Tigray, Ethiopia. These churches carved high in the mountains were built in the 11-15th centuries and have extraordinary paintings inside. Normally one priest will guard the cave. This one was kind enough to pose in front of a beautiful sunset.
