St. Basil's Cathedral at Night

St. Basil's Cathedral at Night

In front of St. Basil's Cathedral you can see the monument to the Kozma Minin and Prince Dmitri Pozharsky, the heroes of the national struggle for liberation against the Swedish and Polish invaders in 1610-1612.

I took this picture recently during Moscow by Night tour provided for my clients from Holland. Fortunately, I had a tripod this time and nobody from special security of the Red Square asked me to shoot only from hands (to use tripod on the Red Square for photo or video you have to make an official request in Administration of the Kremlin and to pay some fee, so I was lucky :-). I was even able to teach my clients how to shoot at night time with long exposure time, they were very thankful and told me that they are going to learn more about photography. I responded that, of course, you have to know some basic knowledge in photography, but the main thing is practice, looking on what are you doing as an artist, and having a will to make good works... isn't it???

While in Moscow on business, I expected a lot of work and not much sightseeing. Happily, I was referred to Arthur who is very knowledgeable about history, as well as culture. He turned my various "last-minute" excursions into learning opportunities of a lifetime, with beautiful photographs made along the way. Thank you, Arthur! I will see you next time I am in Moscow.
