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???

I highly recommend Arthur Lookyanov as a professional and reliable personal driver-guide in and around Moscow. I spent two full days with Arthur, the first in touring two towns in Russia's famous Golden Ring and the second in touring within Moscow proper. Also, he provided round trip car service between my hotel and business meetings on two other days. In all this, I found Arthur to be very friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, and totally committed to client satisfaction. He planned my itineraries very thoroughly, but was also flexible and inventive in changing "on the fly" to meet my interests. A big bonus is that Arthur is also a professional photographer and I now have literally 100s of great photos of my experiences, at no extra cost. Finally, his Honda CR-V is relatively new, well maintained, and quite comfortable. All in all, my time with Arthur was very enjoyable and educational, and I will certainly hope to engage him again should I return to Moscow. Many thanks, Arthur, and kind regards!
