This image and the next ten were taken from the roof of the Kukhna Ark. This one doesn’t appear to have been posted previously as a colour image though.
Roof of the Kukhna Ark.

Some of these images were taken with a long telephoto lens and I can’t precisely identify the subject.

(The order of images is chronological but quite different from the colour posts. I think seem to recall there were differences in time settings of my cameras which I only realised part way through making the colour posts.)
