Barclay de Tolly

Roddy Atkinson

Glasgow, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

Statue of Barclay de Tolly in front of the Kazan Cathedral in St Petersburg, by Boris Orlovsky. I must have been drawn to this as it turns out he’s a descendant from the Scottish clan Barclay. I had to use his head to block the direct sun.
St. Petersburg, Russia. April 2011.
3 exposures hand held from a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Canon EF16-35 2.8 L II. Processed with Photomatix, Raw and Photoshop.

Prince Michael Andreas Barclay de Tolly, 1761 – 1818, was a Baltic-German Russian Field Marshal and Minister of War during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812 and subsequent campaigns of the Russian army in Europe. (Wikipedia)
