It was a moody and foggy day when I visited Catherine's Palace in St. Petersburg as this capture shows. Over the next few days I will be uploading some selected captures of St. Petersburg, Russia. I hope you enjoy the trip.

The fog just makes the beauty of the gate stand out even more. Love the dof of the trees and how the gorgeous colors of the gate are so bold and beautiful. And WOW on the design work, the shapes, the way the smallest of details stands out. Your composing is beautiful to as you got the gate centered so perfectly in the picture. Everything about this is gorgeous Emile. What a sight to see and what a fantastic job you did with it. #11673128
