“If You Don’t Believe…”

1/125 sec, f/11, ISO 100, Using an 18-200mm telephoto lens at 18mm.

At the top of the photo you see a small building. In earlier times the only way to reach the monastery was to climb OR to be hoisted up in a net raised and lowered by monks turning a wooden winch from that building. A net was only replaced after it broke. So the saying was that if you didn’t believe in God at the bottom you would believe by the time you reached the top. Between the great height, the creaking of the old wooden machinery, the swinging of the net and the uncertainty of the condition of the net-- it is easy to see why the saying was true.
