Photographer's Note

I didn’t spent that much time in Russia during this trip, only 2 days in St. Petersburg and 2 days in Moscow. Despite the short time spent in this country I was hoping to get some nice weather and light(dont we all hope for that all the time). I was quite lucky during last few hours I've spent in Moscow while walking around Red square. As soon as I've got there I've seen really beautiful late evening colors in the sky with really soft feel. Holding my new Canon 400D in my hands I took lot of photos, only to realize that I forgot to change ISO which was set to 1600 from the shoot in the underground where the light was very low. Unfortunately I've realized that bit too late when the light and sky has changed again. However I still like the very soft feel with one of the most recognizable monuments of Moscow and Russia - St. Basil's basilica on the Red Square. I am absolutely in love with my new camera as the colors are great, and at least my stupid mistake will show you what result you can get at 1600 ISO...

The Cathedral of Intercession of the Virgin on the Moat (Russian: Собор Покрова что на Рву or simply Pokrovskiy Cathedral, better known as the Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed or St. Basil's Cathedral) is a multi-tented church on the Red Square in Moscow traditionally perceived as symbolic of the unique position of Russia between Europe and Asia. It built in the 16th century on Red Square by Ivan the Terrible to commemorate his successful military campaign against the Tartar Mongols in the besieged city of Kazan, its mass of brightly painted onion domes and turrets is now one of Moscow's best-known landmarks.
