Hi Jim,
What an intriguing scene! I think it would make a perfect selection for the "Where in the World?" feature in the monthly PhotoFlash newsletter (due to be published on Oct. 7th - the first day of school).


Hi Everyone,
Enjoy guessing where Jim captured this scene. We'll check in from time to time over the coming days ... so keep guessing! :-)

Is it Lithuania, Šiauliai The Hill of Crosses (Kryžių kalnas) ? #8015661

I would like to know not only where but why all the crosses?

It always surprises me when BP members know the most obscure and unusual places. Yes, it's the Hill of Crosses in Lithuania.

James -- no one knows the origin of this place, but it is thought to have started in 1831 after some kind of uprising.
