The reason why this is here is that Windows 10 suggested I might like a mountain theme for my Screenm so I followed the link to find mount Ararat classified under “Mountain ”
I went over to scoop up information – but Edge won’t allow for that, it allows downloads and saving but I wanted the “html” so I had to open in Chrome to inspect and get the credentials.
Mount Ararat (/ˈærəˌræt/ ARR-ə-rat; Turkish: Ağrı Dağı; Armenian: Մասիս, Masis and Արարատ, Ararat) is a snow-capped and dormant compound volcano in the extreme east of Turkey. It consists of two major volcanic cones: Greater Ararat, the highest peak in Turkey and the Armenian plateau with an elevation of 5,137 m (16,854 ft); and Little Ararat, with an elevation of 3,896 m (12,782 ft). The Ararat massif is about 35 km (22 mi) wide at ground base.
Despite the scholarly consensus that the “mountains of Ararat” of the Book of Genesis do not refer to specifically Mt. Ararat, it has been widely accepted in Christianity as the resting place of Noah’s Ark. It is the principal national symbol of Armenia and has been considered a sacred mountain by Armenians. It is featured prominently in Armenian literature and art and is an icon for Armenian irredentism. Along with Noah’s Ark, it is depicted on the coat of arms of Armenia.
The first efforts to reach Ararat’s summit were made in the Middle Ages. However, it was not until 1829 when Friedrich Parrot and Khachatur Abovian, accompanied by four others, made the first recorded ascent
I’m starting the week off with an adorable baby elephant that I had the pleasure of spending part of my last morning on safari with. It never hurts to start the week with something sweet Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead.

The post MM 200: Monochrome Madness appeared first on LEANNE COLE – The Photographer’s Mentor.
It is surprising to see the number 200 up there for Monochrome Madness. There have been 200 MM posts over the last 4 years, which is quite amazing really. Still nice to see that some of you still want to contribute. Not a surprise to see last week that it is one of the most popular posts.
The next theme is the first Wednesday in April and it is From Under. As always it is your interpretation…….
