Kyiv at Sunset

    This looks nice: Large on Black

    On my last day in Kiev (Kyiv is the Russian/Ukrainian name of the city) I climbed a extremely sketchy series of icy metal stairs up this hillside to the get this picture. Below is a famous street that I can't remember the name of, and even if I did, you have to be a dolphin to pronounce it.

    On that dolphinesque street, there are all kinds of local goods being sold from little carts and booths. Various nest Russian dolls, old Soviet war medals, pictures of the wars, wooden maces, particolored scarves, and cold-weather gear of every size and shape.

    In the distance, you can see Saint Michael's cathedral on the horizon.

      Very nice. The large version is even better - it brings out more detail in the buildings.

      Love the pink tones in the sky - one of those fantastic winter days where everything is the colour of a dead salmon.
