Details of the towers of this church. This is located in St. Petersburg, Russia. Legend has it that the overall idea of the unusual design of this Cathedral came in a dream to the senior priest of the ~ St. Sergious Monastery Archimandrite Ignaty (secular name, Malyshev), who possessed professional artistic skills.

Great Tammy, and now especially with a greater freedom in Russia, it is such a delight and pleasure to see the place. It's such a big change from the old Soviet rule. #10223923

This is amazing. I don't think I can come up with any words that would do the design work here any justice. This is one of those pictures that has a kazillion details and each one is so sharp in detail. One can study this for along time in order to take it all in. Just love that artwork. Gorgeous work my friend. #10228248

Like Frank - I don't know where to begin...what a magnificent piece of's totally mind-boggling the amount of detail captured here...add the vibrant colors and wonderful shapes, all against a beautiful cloud-filled sky...and it's just magical. A feast for the eyes! #10249358

Laura E. Swan level-classic July 30, 2012

I totally agree with Val, Rey. :) What a remarkable place this must have been to visit! Like a giant toy land in the square! I'd love to visit there one day but I'm scared to death of communism and countries that were ever under that regime. I am glad you had a safe trip and came home with such beautiful images!!!
