The church I like a lot always attracts me to make a new photo in some different conditions and season. Here's a panorama of 20 shots without tripod (Original size - 13357x5590). The frost of about -20 Celcius made me move faster. True Russian winter is not a friend of the photographer:-)


Thank you for all the comments and favs, my friends.

Russian Chapel (2008)

The Russian Chapel on the Vršič Pass (Slovenian Ruska kapelica na Vršiču) is a Russian Orthodox chapel on the northern side of the Vršič Pass in northwestern Slovenia. The chapel dedicated to St. Vladimir was built in memory of Russian prisoners of war who were killed in an avalanche during the First World War in connection with the construction of the pass road. The chapel is both a memorial to the war and a symbolic link between Slovenia and Russia.

The city of Kalyazin (Tver region) is called the "Russian Atlantis". This city was almost completely flooded in times of shock communist construction in the 30s. To create the Uglicheskaya HPP, a reservoir was needed. And they did it - put a dam and a small town went under the water along with all its houses, orchards, streets, a monastery and even a cemetery..And as a silent reproach - miraculously survived the bell tower, which grows directly out of the water. There used to be a monastery here - several churches and cathedrals. During the construction of the hydroelectric power station, the monastery was blown up. Only one belfry survived. It was not touched, as it was planned to use this high point for training paratroopers..Alexander Solzhenitsyn called these places unsinked by Russia: "Kalyazinskaya belltower is a symbol of that they will not let Russia drown completely"..Troitsky Makaryev monastery can be seen on the sate Wikipedia
