Holiday greetings: Good Friday 2015

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ at Calvary. It is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians, and is a public holiday in many countries, including Singapore.

We were trekking from the Salzburg Fortress to the Nonnberg Abbey one evening on vacation when we came upon these beautiful altarpieces set into the rock surface of the hill upon which the fortress was built. It even had a shelter above it to protect it from the elements. Photo taken with a Sony A7 with 24-70mm lens. Photo credit: John Tan, 2014.

The year of the crucifixion is estimated to have occurred in AD 33.
