Watery Wednesday: Mtskheta

Here are two views of the 3,000-year old city of Mtskheta (we didn't use to pronounce the 't,' if that helps), at the confluence of the Rivers Mtkvari and Aragvi. This was the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Iberia in what is presently Georgia, and is located less than 20 miles from the present-day capital of Tbilisi. I like the way the water suddenly turns green in the second photo.

How lovely to see parts of the world I'll probably never get to see in person. Thanks for sharing. I've shared a watery photo my sister took in South Bend, Washington at Small Reflections this week ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I like the way the water suddenly turns green as well. That is how my little pond is. Where the muskrats are eating it is muddy and the rest of the pond is clear. I love the curves in the river and the city crawling up the hill. Thanks for sharing these.
