Cathedral of Christ the Savior - Moscow by 

This photo was taken in Moscow, Russia, during the summer of 2010. The weather was unusually hot (around + 40 oC) and dry for several weeks, triggering frequent forest and peat bog fires. Most of the central part of Russia, including Moscow, was covered by a dense smoke.
