        About 80kms south West of Göreme, just outside of the town of Güzelyurt, lies a rocky outcrop which has been occupied since Neolithic times. At the base of the monolith, a little cave church with graves inside can be found, but just above it, right at the top, is this stunning little church known locally as Yüksek kilise – literally meaning ‘high – church’. The views from up there are breathtaking, but like all things photographic, one must take a few steps back to get a sense of it all.
