Artist's Description

Kiev, Ukraine

The Pecherskaya Lavra monastery was founded in 11 century. The name Pecherskaya comes from the word “peshera” (cave) which were situated there. The monks used to live in these caves before the monastery was built. And Lavra is a noble name, which was mostly given to big and significant monasteries. The architectural ensemble of the monastery even today makes the great impression. In the sunny day the blinks of many domes and belfries are blinding the eyes.

Shot was done on AB mode, so I can processed this as HDR, but was done from slow moving boat with Canon PowerShot S3 ( I took this camera for my trip to Ukraine) . Monastery on the hi hill and sun was pointed to my camera.
So after HDR processed I processed this in Photoshop , couple hours of work to bring colors and blending with another image of sunset which I took just from my window in Boston with the same camera.

Since I see so much comments about fairytale I just added part of poem in Russian from A. Puskin:
-——————————————————————————————-
Сказка о царе Салтане (Пушкин)

Вот открыл царевич очи;
Отрясая грезы ночи
И дивясь, перед собой
Видит город он большой,
Стены с частыми зубцами,
И за белыми стенами
Блещут маковки церквей
И святых монастырей.
