Photographer's Note

Not far from from Moscow, in the small city Dzerzhinsky there is the big and picturesque monastery of Saint Nikolas which named Nikolo-Ugreshsky. The cloister's history begins from 1380 and then was very complex and complicated. During the Soviet era in was closed and the labor commune was esteblished on its place. Finally it was reopened and restored nowadays. The church which you can see on the picture is rised on 2001-02 in memory of reverend Pimen Ugreshsky who was one of the cloister's abbots and was buried under this place. It was taken in the coldest evening of the year (it was about -18C) but it was recompenced with the nicest sunset. Hope you like that.
