The rear of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral on Toompea Hill, Tallin. For a glimpse of the fabulous interior
see here (although in fact it is much more stunning). Unfortunately when I was there along with several
hundred others, photography was not allowed inside.

The Cathedral was built between 1894 and 1900. Early in the 20th century it was to be demolished, but
funds were lacking. It then fell into disrepair, but over the past 20 years or so has been (and still is being)
beautifully renovated and is now one of the most visited sites in Tallin.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.
I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.
