Photographer's Note

Another shot of the enigmatic giant statues near the summit of Nemrut Dagi (2133.6m), on which a tumulus has been constructed by King Antiochus of Commagene, an ancient hybrid Greek & Iranian culture, in 62 BC. Here, the early morning sunlight has illuminated the statues depicted. There were several others, but the light was blocked by the shadows of a crowd of tourists taking snaps of the sunrise. The human figures are Antiochus and Zeus at left, and there are an eagle and a lion at right. More info and pics here:,pair%20of%20guardian%20animal%20statues.
