Incredible photo of a church on volcano formation

Sometimes, you come across a photo that leaves your jaw swinging open.
The photo you see in this post is such a pic: it shows the Chapel of Saint-Michel d'Aiguilhe perched atop a needle of volcanic formation piercing dramatically high into the sky.
As this site explains, "The basalt needle on which the chapel is built rises approximately 280 feet, and is reached by 268 stone steps that wind their way up the side of the rock."
It's rumoured in 1429, the mother of Joan of Arc, Isabelle Romée, came to the site to pray.
Have you come across any stunning photos of buildings sitting atop precarious land?
