Cathedral & Moscow-River

Cathedral & Moscow-River

During the last two weeks Muscovites are very surprised to witness such warm temperatures at the end of November - beginning of December with average temperatures during a day about 4-5 degrees above zero Centigrade. Of course, the snow, which fell in the middle of November was melted very fast and the weather in Moscow became to be like in Europe, a lot of people talking that we are living now as like in London, mostly cloudy, no sun, a lot of rains and from time to time fog, even several days ago after a small rain I have seen a rainbow nearby my house - it was really impressive to see at this time of winter season!!!

Talking about the current weather in Moscow, I would like to show you the picture with a view on the famous cathedral in Moscow - the Cathedral of Christ The Savior, which I took recently with my clients from US (David and James - camera crew of Johnny Weir), right from embankment of Moscow-River, the opposite side from the Moscow Kremlin.

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the main church in Moscow. It was opened in 1883, in a memory of Russian victory over Napoleon in 1812. This Cathedral had been under construction for about 40 years (1839-1883), but it was destroyed in one day, in December 5th, 1931 - during the Stalin's time, because communists decided to build "Soviet Palace" for their meetings. The Cathedral was recovered during 1995 - 2000.

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.
