Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky Cathedral - III



Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky Cathedral


As we walked down the street to take a broad view of this magnificent cathedral,
the reflection of a car window captured the gold onion dome turrets
against the afternoon sky.

What an original shot, Genie. I have not seen the cathedral (or should I say the reflection of the cathedral?) in years! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Hello Genie:
The shimmering reflection of the golden domes is so beautifully captured here. One can feel the heat of the day in that gloriously golden light and the magnificence of the cathedral soaring above the roof tops!

Awesome reflection! This reminds me that I have a photo of the dome of Les Invalides reflected in a car window. Now I just need to find it. :)
