Photographer's Note

Like magic in the sunlight. These onion top towers glisten - made for a perfect day, jewels in the sky.

This "Catherine Palace" is a Rococo palace located in the town of Pushkin, about 25 km south-east of St. Petersburg, Russia. It's main use was a summer residence of the Russian tsars. Behind it is a wonderful park.

Parts of this palace outside are rather bare, needing, I felt, more landscaping. During WWII and before much of this pretty palace was destroyed by wars and fire and has been slowly rebuilt. I am not sure what remains today is even a shadow of what was originally constructed. Still beautiful today however.
