View on the Kremlin Towers

View on the Kremlin Towers

Here is a view on the towers and famous Cathedral of Christ the Savoir from the Kremlin. I took this photo in autumn 2005 nearby the Grand Kremlin Palace, several steps from the Annunciation Cathedral.

You can see here that the Kremlin, as stronghold of Moscow city, is located on a hill (named Borovitsky) and on the bank of Moskva-Reka (Moscow-River) following all rules from medieval times about good locations for fortresses. So, here you can see how city looks nowadays not so far from the Cathedral's Square where Moscow was founded at 1147.

I like this view and composition...If you glance on it more thoughtfully, it is not doubt, that you can find 3 (three) symbols from different epochs here: star, cross and.. symbol of Mercedes.. :). By the way, the symbol of Mercedes is placed on the roof of a very famous building "House on Embankment", which is also well-known from the novel "Master and Margarita" by Bulgakov...

I travel to and through Moscow once, or twice, a year. Usually, I do not have time for pictures. This last trip was to be no different,as I was arriving at 2030, on 24 December, leaving the next day.

I contacted Arthur to take me around Moscow. I couldn't believe he wanted to that late, but there we were, freezing temps, photographing Moscow from many venues.

Arthur proved to be quite knowledgeable about history, and such, but that did not surprise me.

Next time I visit, I will schedule a more reasonable amount of time, getting day, as well as night, photographs.

Thank you, Arthur. You made it a fun time, and we both captured a lot of great images. See you this summer, I hope.
