Landscape on a rainy day viewed from a road near Vankasar Church in the Martakert Region of Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), not far from Tigranakert fortress.

Nagorno-Karabakh is a disputed territory, a de facto independent state populated by ethnic Armenians but claimed by, and recognized internationally as part of, Azerbaijan, which lost control of the territory in a bloody ethnic war that coincided with the decline and dissolution of the Soviet Union. That war ended with a ceasefire in May 1994, but the ceasefire is habitually broken.
