This picture I took recently on the way to Sergiev Posad, where is located the famous Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra which considered to be a Russian Vatican, center of Orthodox religion. It is not so much snow in Moscow city because of pretty warm weather, so if you have a chance to drive out of city - you can see real winter with a lot of snow all around. This shot was taken about 65 km from downtown of the city on morning time after a small night snowfall... The skies is grey here, even dark grey - very common at least for first half of a winter season, a sunshine is precious now here, in Moscow :-).
With this picture I would like to send greetings with my best wishes to all for a happy holiday season and successful New Year! I have just posted my main greetings with interesting photo on TrekLens website and hope that you will have time to have a look on my picture and read my
Season's Greetings from Russia.

an absolutely remarkable, serene and peaceful shot thats cloaked in the shades and tones of winter. The composition is nice and so are the colours and lights. good work indeed.

Nice picture, really typical of the Russian winter.
I would have been curious to see the original to compare with the B&W
Thanks for sharing

Great winter scene! The snow is really beautiful, even with the grey sky. The way the snow covers the tree branches gives them an outline which is unusual and beautiful. Excellent work and Merry Christmas!

Очень живописно получилось... И композиция удачная, и POV. Хорошо! А у нас снег если и есть, то на неделю - другую... а потом слякоть и сырость.
